Okay - Isis is at it again!

My Isis gets in so much trouble - she is just too curious.  I was on IM with my daughter this afternoon and everything died, computer, printer, half of cable box - everything!  Isis had been "snuggling" at my feet under the desk as she sometimes does.

I took out cable from front of hard drive, otherwise I can't move it as cable is not really long enough, dragged it out and nothing was disconnected.  I checked everything, got down on my hands and knees under desk, and lo and behold, just thought to check my power surge thingy, and sure enough the switch had been turned off.
   Of course when I started to do this Isis flew out of the room and starting washing herself in the hallway trying to look innocent but still close enough to the door so she could watch me.  I swear she was laughing at me!!!!!   I see no way I can keep her from my switches, she turns on the radio all the time for her rock music, and now she is turning off the switch on the power surge - I guess when she sees a switch she just cannot resist tapping it with her very flexible and cute paws!  

She has been playing with my pole lamp too, I have to lean it against the couch now, the screw in part is stripped, probably from her pushing at it all the time.  My other one was not as sturdy and it finally fell apart Isis pushed it over so many times.  So this one is obviously succumbing to her attentions also, and it is a heavy one but obviously where pole joins base is not really cat proof - LOL.

Earlier I put out my paints, palette and had my easel with painting on it ready to go - before I finished computer stuff, she had the tinfoil on the floor and I could see a white paw tapping around edge of drawer from underneath (it is my new french easel) looking for stuff to check out!  When I told her no, she attacked my foot, wrapped herself around my ankle and gave me a little love bite on my bare skin, and least I think it was a love bite and not a warning.  Obviously feels if I am not going to paint then she will.  In the past she had one orange paw and one green one, wasn't happy about the cleanup of those paws but that hasn't stopped her from being very interested in the painting process.

I am going to make my dinner now, and realize I will have to paint when she naps just like I did when my children were small, because lately she keeps putting her fingers (toes?) around the paint brush that I am holding, she just wants to help.  She has a wide spread of her fingers and they are also quite long, so she has a grip on her.

A laid back happy birthday pose

June 27th

Just wanted to show you what Isis does so I trip over her. This way she can howl at me as if I was killing her or something! She does hate to have her photo taken, and I wanted to get this shot because it is laid back, needed it for a birthday wish for a friend to have a laid back birthday and if she couldn't Isis was doing it for her - LOL Well I wasn't quick enough so got the "look" and her little front paw bunched up as it does when she wants to pummel me, we do "box" once in a while, it is a game she likes to play.

My cat Isis the ragdoll

 June 26th
Well I have always known my cat is a little different - she tries to help me paint by tapping the canvas with her paw, grabbing the paint brush when I am holding it and "helping" me to paint - LOL.  Wakes me up in the morning by turning on the radio - older model Bose that has the buttons on top so she presses them until she gets a rock station.

Well we have this ongoing musical war, I like classical, new age, opera etc..... my cat Isis loves rock in any shape or form.  Whenever I have my music on she howls (part Siamese) not to sing along but trying to drown it out - now I know where the phrase catterwailing (sp?) comes from.  Last night she was snoozing on the rug in the art studio in front of the desk, this is so I will trip over her and gives her an excuse to pretend I am trying to kill her she howls so loud.... anyway, I was in the living room channel surfing on my new HD TV to see what the extra channels were like.    One was "Unplugged" and the Black Crows were playing, the minute they came on Isis came flying into the living room, jumped up onto her condo, looked at me with loving eyes, chirped at me, and promptly lay down and went to sleep to her favorite kind of music.

So what was a good slave supposed to do?  I could not stand listening to it, so went to my studio where the computer is and spent some time browsing the internet.

This morning was looking out the window and chatting about the birds and everything she could see out there.  Sometimes I wish she would keep quiet for a bit - LOL.  Thankfully right now she is sleeping - whew!

Still going strong and not smoking.  I don't think about it very much anymore, so won't be doing a journal on it as much as I thought I would.

Happy painting again

I am finally back to painting after quite a while.  Very busy working on two commissions, as one is drying and am working on the other.  Feels good to be back in the swing of things.  As I finish I will be posting the photos here.

My cat was at it again this afternoon, a small fly got caught between the window (it was open about two inches) and screen, my Isis was on windowsill on her hind legs and with her paw tried to get inbetween the glass and screen from the top of the bottom window.  I couldn't believe she figured that out instead of going under where the window was open at the bottom.  She left the room, so I took a tissue and caught the fly, not knowing she came back and saw me.  Then she spent the next few minutes checking around the floor for the fly.  Sometimes I think she thinks too much for a cat - LOL.  Of course I wasn't quick enough with the camera to catch this!

I am up at this wonderful hour because for some reason I cannot get to sleep.
