MICAH: Uh-oh, looks like someone is in trouble again. Do you remember this picture from last year?
SAM: Jan thought she had finally resolved the Marcus eating the cats' food problem. All has been well for ... a week?
MERCI: Tonight she suddenly heard the thud of something heavy landing on the kitchen floor and she immediately knew what that something heavy was.
RUSTY: She raced into the living room just as Marcus dropped onto a bed and tried to look innocent by not licking his mouth.
CYNDI: She sped into the kitchen and checked the cat food bowl. Yep, licked clean and still wet. She raced back to the living room, pointed to the crate, and Marcus walked into it with his head down but a glint in his eye.
BUDDY: He's a chip off the young Buddy. I was quite good at the same sport when I was young and agile. Jan can't figure out how he got up on the dryer again. Way to go, Marcus! Keep her confused.
MARCUS: I don't know why Jan always blames me. I was only licking my mouth because I was wondering what was for dinner.
PERCY: We wrote yesterday's post on the Old New and New New Coats Wednesday evening. Surprisingly, Jan did try to adjust Buddy's and Merci's coats to better fit them. However ...
SAM: As some of you were aware, in between coats, Jan lost a needle and thread on the desk. She was afraid one of us would find the needle and get hurt.
CYNDI: So she kept looking. Last evening she decided to try one more time. It was not on or under anything on the desk. It was not on the floor.
MICAH: She was tempted to go look in the refrigerator, just in case, but she had not left the chair while she was sewing.
RUSTY: She picked up Buddy's coat and saw the glint of a needle. It was a needle and black thread "glued" to a black velcro strap.
MERCI: A couple of days ago, we saw a drawing from the One Drawing Daily blog. We stopped by and volunteered to be one of the daily drawings.
CYNDI: And yesterday Thomas Clausen sent us the link to Percy's Little Cat in Profile drawing.
BUDDY: We really like the drawing and Thomas Clausen said it would be okay to post it on our blog. He also has a website, Pet Portraits by Thomas Clausen.
RUSTY: We're not doing a review. We just think you'd enjoy visiting to view some of his work. And perhaps you know someone who would like a pet portrait for Christmas?
MARCUS: You too can volunteer to be one of his daily drawing models.
SAM: It's a good thing Thomas didn't pick Marcus as his subject. He'd have had to draw Marcus with his mouth full of cat food.
PERCY: This is the photo he used. It's from our Introducing Taylor post.
