While The Girls Are Away, The Cats Will Play

I'm just the illustrator, so editor's get your red pens out. You will have a field day with editing my post. And you will see why Gale is the talented author and I am forbidden to write. Artists pay attention to colors not misspelled words or where the commas go.

Enough. Let me tell you why I am here.

Gale and Karen are away on vacation and I feel it's my duty to report on how Banana and Cheese are doing. Yesterday I paid a visit and while I can't tell you everything because I don't want to rat on the cat's, I can at least tell you the funniest. I know all of you cat's out there can relate.

Have you ever come home to the toilet paper unraveled and cleverly distributed throughout the house? Here's a peek as to what Gale and Karen are going to come home to and why.

Cat hair on the bed. I mean LOT'S of cat hair. After vacation it's always pretty clear that our feline family members have taken up your space on the bed. We all find this endearing because in our minds we think it is because they miss us and this is the closest they can be to us while we are away. Well, I have got news for you. Take a look at what I observed:

Banana and Cheese, don't worry. The rest of the secrets are mine to keep!


  1. And what a lovely illustrations these are of two gorgeous kitties MISSING their humans very much!! :-)

    Take care

  2. Bananas and Cheese, can you trust this person

  3. Um, every spot in the house belongs to the kitties. Just saying.

    Banana and Cheese, who IS this person casting aspersions about you?

  4. Haha! I love seeing human faces when a revelation like this is made about their cats! "Aw, they really missed us while we were on vacation." To some degree, yes, we do. However, cats are FANTASTIC actors and we really play up the emotion when you come back. It helps to hide the fact that we have had several block parties (with live bands) in your absence. Yes, that small puddle of yack in the corner is there because I was distraught with separation anxiety. It has nothing to do with vodka shooters. Live it up Banana and Cheese!

  5. Good to meet you Banana and Cheese! I would have come over from Freya's even if I hadn't seen your wonderful illustration... you see, my first cat's name was Banana (Ok, technically first cat of my own). I've really enjoyed cruising around your site!
