It's the cat's house really. We just pay the mortgage!

When I married my second husband he came with four cats.  I had never had inside pets before so it was quite an adjustment for me.  The one that befriended me first was the Siamese - Kimmy and she was patient with me to explain how cats rule the house.  She is the reason that we only have Siamese cats now.
For my card, I used the image, sentiment and paper from Doctor Digi House of Stamps.

Cardstock:  Bazzil; Paper Company; Recollections

What a hilarious card. I LOVE that sentiment! We don't have a house payment....but with 17 cats to feed, the cat food bill is about the equivalent!! Ha. Love your balls of yarn!! Did you just wrap the twine around a diecut circle, so they are flat??? Genius idea!!!

Thank you so much for participating in the 2016 Cat Lovers Hop!!!

Ha! Your story made me giggle. When I married MY hubby, he too came with a cat. There is definitely a learning curve with kitties (especially Siamese cats!) I've come to love noisy Siamese cats now. Love your card too; hilarious sentiment. Thanks for sharing this gem with us over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 site.
