I love cats. I also like playing with polymer clay and attempting to draw.

Untitled by 1tiptip1Untitled by 1tiptip1

Mewlie has never liked her nails trimmed.  In fact the only thing Mewlie hates worse than a manicure is her eye ointment.  Mitzu hates it too but he learned long ago the quicker it's done the sooner he gets treats.  They always get treats after we force our stupid human habits on them.  That was my first mistake.  I trimmed his first and Mewlie got worked up.  I track her down, plop her down in the chair and she goes into escape mode before my brother can scruff her (we call it the kitty submission hold).  She twists around and kicks off into run so fast that when I try to regain control one of her back feet hits me hard.

For those unaware of kitty anatomy the back claws are extended on jump for traction.  And they are duller than the front meaning they can make some real bleeders when they hit.  When I look down I can tell she got me good even before the blood wells.  I tell my brother I'm going to bring her back and she's DEFINATLY not getting an treats this time. 

She's a brat and a half but she loves me.  I don't doubt in.  I also love her and got a severe TOUGH love issues and don't reward this kind of thing by letting them win.  I go after her, instead of running she goes into kitty appeasement mode and rolls on her back.  I pick her up, (pre-scruffed just in case) and it's turns into one of the easiest least fussy nail trims in a long time. 

I wash my hand and give a generous flush with disinfectant, wrap a cloth over it (it's a messy povidone-iodine solution and very staining) and sit down.  Mewlie is in complete appeasement mode.  She's trying to get both mine and my brother to pay attention to how cute and nice and non-vicious she is.  She had a knack for knowing if I'm mad and has never liked it.  Especially, if it's her I'm mad at.

Ironically all this happens not long after I post a picture I called kitty switch blades.  Makes you respect the fact animals we have in our homes are built by nature to survive in the wild.  Thousands of years living with humans and they are still impressively armed.  It's by there choice these things only happen by accident. 

P.S.  A few minutes later I look and she's found some of Mitzu's treats he didn't finish.

Remember when you asked me for that sketch commission a couple months back? Just popping by to ask if you still wanted one. If you do, I'll start working on it right away as I'm done with school for awhil e and can actually draw. :D
