Coffee a hug in a mug

Today it has been a rainy, gloomy day so a warm cup of coffee sounds good.  My image is from Miss Rach freebies and the sentiment is from TLC.  My cats have been sleeping.  I have bought them wonderful beds, pillows and blankets; however, they don't sleep on any of those instead they sleep in buckets.  When my husband was receiving cancer treatments and wanted a bucket next to the bed in case he would vomit, it was a problem since he would find a cat sleeping in it.  So we had to get extra buckets for them on the backside of the bed and they love it.

Oh my goodness... what incredible creatures kitties are! LOL about the buckets - anyone would think pillows and blankets would be so much more comfortable! Maybe they like the 'contained-ness' about buckets! I hope your hubby if okay? The photos are gorgeous! Love your card.. such a cute little hat and scarf!

Oh my, I laughed til my head hurt. I've been trying to write this for, like, 5 minutes, but have to stop because I'm laughing too hard. Just the thought of trying to HOLD it while waiting for the sleepy cat to clear out of the barf bucket. Your poor hubby.They ARE the perfect shape and I bet the kitties love the cool plastic... and what GORGEOUS kitties they are!!
Thanks for the intro to Miss Rach... those will be terrific for the next Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop, too! Those flowers and bow make a perfect addition to your sweet card. Thanks again for the giggles and grins!!

That is hilarious! OMGoodness! That is such a cute story and I love the photos of the kitties in their buckets. My two boys like to sleep in cardboard boxes (these have become their "beds" in my craftroom) and the girl likes to sleep in the bucket of the shredder! It's so funny to peek under the shredder and see her in there. I tried to put a soft towel in Kiwi's box but he actually prefers brown packing paper so I had to take the towel out and paper back in! He makes a nest with it! So funny!

Your cats are absolutely beautiful! What lovely coats they have! And your card is super cute - I love this sweet image - I've got my Miss Rach coffee/tea/cocoa cat images all printed and ready to colour for the Coffee Lovers Hop in December!

Pretty card! Great take on the sketch. Your kitties are just too funny, sleeping in buckets.

Janis said...

Oh, my....this is just toooooooooooooo funny and soooooooooooo like cats!!! Yes, they must decide on their own sleeping accommodations. Nothing we choose will do! And if the container is a couple sizes too small, all the better! Cats.... lol...

Since most of my tribe of cats live outdoors, we have lots of cardboard boxes with old worn out blankets or clothes in them for the kitties to nest in. You can tell how cold it is by whether the cats are sleeping alone or with a friend and also how readily they get out of bed when we go out on the back porch. Sometimes, whatever tidbits we have for them are just not worth getting out of the warm nest. We know how that when the cats want outside at 5 am!!! Arggghh...

Thanks for sharing your adorable card and the pictures of your totally GORGEOUS cats. I want to bury my face in their magnificent coats!!! Thanks so much for being a part of the Cat Lovers Hop!!!!

OH my goodness, your sweet cats are way too adorable in their not-so-comfy beds but isn't that just like a cat?!!! Your adorable card combines two great and cats! I hope that your hubby is doing better now and doesn't have to worry about fighting the cats for buckets!
