Teapot Tuesday hostess Kelly decided to feature Speedy the Cat, or rather Faith, his owner, this week at the Teapot Tuesday Challenge. Speedy causes Faith all kinds of difficulties while she's trying to stamp so to take a break she is going to send him to a watercoloring class . . . but he's being stubborn, the story goes, and refusing to leave!
Well, Speedy is actually getting a very bad rap. Here you see he's visiting a sick friend, his friend the bird lives in that little house. And considering proportions I don't really believe Speedy is up to any mischief because the birds who live there could arm wrestle him and win any time!
I actually made this to console my middle daughter. Yesterday our cat went missing. She is an indoor cat but likes to prowl the porch and relax in the sun in the warmer weather. I didn't catch her in the act, but I believe when someone opened a door yesterday she got out and didn't come back home. Pair that up with the fact that we have seen a fox in our back yard the past week and I think she isn't going to come home. So DD is not only very sad, she is also home sick from school. So I tried to color in the cat to slightly resemble our kitty and made it in the hopes of cheering her up slightly.
This also fits the color challenge on Splitcoast today and Terri's Papertrey Peeps challenge to create a 3-D item . . . you might recognize the birdhouse as one of the early PTI templates! Thanks for looking.
