Janet said...

I mean WAS lovely... is it salvageable?

Suse said...

Nope.

However, one egg survived, and happily it was my favourite. This one ... which Son #2 did in Prep (and he's now in Year 9).

Naughty, naughty cat!!
And what a gorgeous tree it was.
I hope you guys have had the most wonderful weekend (apart from that part).

The first thing that popped up on this post was the photo and instantly I thought: oh, the cat will just love that...

Well, it was a particularly stylish cat toy.....

Cats are like toddlers - you have to rethink everything that is within reach and may appeal!

In my house, all dairy products have to be covered up until the moment of use; cat tongue-marks in the butter are a dead give-away.

uh-oh. At least you have this photo...and your fave.
in my experience, cats never seem to understand when they are in the doghouse.

I'm glad you had the photo anyway. And the remains of your favourite egg. I suppose you could say he thought you'd made it a a special toy for him, but it sounds like he is just a badass and did it on purpose.

Yes, thank heaven for photos.

Perhaps you should swing the cat around your head by the tail; that's what my dad always teasingly threatened to do when our siamese misbehaved.

I would have cried!

No cats in my house, just two destructive little kids. I have been making some knit and felted eggs decorated with embroidery that survive the "gentle" touch of my 2 year old and probably a mischievous cat.

Yeah, I know how that story goes. Mine managed to smash 2 before I even got them out of the box and at that point I decided that it was wooden only this year!

I am sorry for your loss. I did laugh out loud when I read the line under your photo.
