Here's another installment of me playing with watercolors! Here are some rainbow cats. The one on the bottom right is just starting to turn fancy (hence the goofy look of uncertainty and surprise) and the other two have already turned over from plain old cats into beautiful rainbow felines. I like how they turned out... Continue Reading →
So the cats are really interested in becoming billionaires. Can you call it being a billionaire if it's only 1.5 billion? Well, regardless, the cats are searching the coin jar to get a ticket they can share. They said that if they win they'd share the winnings and give me a small cut. I thought... Continue Reading →
So I got something in the mail and it came in a nicely sized box. So obviously, the cats were immediately interested. Duncan jumps in....and sits. Just sits. For like 5 minutes. Now I know that's probably not a cat record but it was weird all the same. He didn't lay down, he didn't do... Continue Reading →
Ok, so I have been in a bit of a creative funk lately but it's starting to come back! Starting with these doodles. As I was mindlessly watching Dropdead Diva I doodled these doodles, which I figured I would share since it's about all the drawing I've been doing. BUT....it got the rust off the...

So my friends Emily and Brett have a pretend pet cat. Pretend pet cat, you ask? Well, it's just that he comes around and is super friendly. His real name is Dakota, but they've given him a new name...and he has accepted it. I honestly don't know how the name change started, but I'd like... Continue Reading →
So I've begun to let myself go and the URL of this blog is becoming more misleading. I realize lately that I totally go places (work included) with cat fur on my clothes and am not specifically aware of it....nor do I really care - until I realize I have stupid cat fur all over... Continue Reading →
Oooooooooook. I'm back. Yes, I am here and moved in to our newly fixed up little house. So hello, again! Firstly, we've been working super hard on getting our house all fixed up....like 3-5 days a week after work and almost all weekend every weekend since January. I know, right? I totally didn't imagine that... Continue Reading →
Did you know that Trudith likes to go snorkeling? And it's not just her. Her kitty loves a good adventure, too. Can't you tell? And I think the cat has a name now....thanks to a nice blend by Nora combining Jessi, Matt, and her own suggestion, the cat is named Sir Percival Chauncy Fuzbluffen. He oftentimes... Continue Reading →
Trudith isn't just an old fuddy duddy who sits around her house in the sitting room all day long. She and her cat enjoy a good outing at the park. P.S. I totally had one of those umbrella hats that I recall buying on vacation in Florida....and it was awesome. Well, awesome when I wore... Continue Reading →
So her is Trudith again. This time she really shows her class and graceful nature. She always eats like a lady.
Trudith loves a good chat with her gal pals, and her cat does, too. I still haven't decided on a name yet. Maybe I'll just leave him/her/it nameless and let you choose your favorite. It might be more fun that way (What a cop out! I should just make a decision.).
Thanks for all the cat name suggestions. Trudith hasn't told me yet which is the right one, though. But anyway, here they are just chillin'....'cause that's what Trudith does.
I decided to draw this lovely lady on paper instead to see how she would turn out and I have begun to draw here in a bunch of situations. She now has a name, as you saw in the title, and she NEVER goes by Trudy. I haven't decided on a name for her... Continue Reading →
I was reading a comment on a website where someone was trying to be funny (I think) and said they like to pretend that their bed is an island that they and their cats are stuck on it. So here is my rendition because that was too funny not to draw. Cats, of course, would... Continue Reading →
So I've been drawing on paper while I wait for my stylus to arrive and I kind of like it more. Except for the scanning. I don't know why but I seriously hate scanning stuff - for some reason it just irks me. So anyway, I got a kitten daily calendar (go figure, right?) and... Continue Reading →
So my dumb ol' drawing tablet stylus is still broken and I had to order one from Amazon. Boo. But at least I'll soon be able to do better digital drawings than I did today with my mouse. What is this, you ask? I'm sitting on the couch, making a dumb face, with the "cats"... Continue Reading →
Sorry for all the caps up there but I AM EXCITED! This marks the end of the first year of notacrazycatlady and also the conclusion of my post a day challenge. For those of you from the beginning, you know that I have boldly accepted the challenge (from WordPress.com and I suppose myself) to post... Continue Reading →
So I had a lovely time with my grammy today. She lives like 10 minutes from work so I stopped by to hang out for a bit and we went out for a bite to eat. I introduced her to Jimmy Johns and we both got my favorite...the Beach Club. Turkey, provolone (I think), lettuce,... Continue Reading →
So I took this photo on our honeymoon in Maine and I decided...you know, since I'm not a crazy cat lady....that it would be fun to pretend the cats were there, too. Since Smudge loves to get in the way of things he is photobombing a lovely shot of Duncan dipping his toes in the... Continue Reading →
I really hope Jimmie Chew doesn't get sick of me drawing pictures from his blog, but I just love them. They crack me up. Here is a basket chewing cat cattoon. On another fun note, in just a few short days (10 maybe? I can't recall) I will have posted a blog post everyday for... Continue Reading →
This is a post live from a family holiday party! I am a leaning cat because I am a bit tipsy, haha. There are a lot of family members here and I don't want to eavesdrop on their conversations so that's why I made them say "blah blah"...not that they just blah blah it up. 🙂
So yesterday my brother and I talked about tobogganing and I thought it might be fun if Duncan and Smudge went with me.
Duncan totally winks at me. It might just be a one-sided blink but I like to think it's his way of saying hello and that he loves me.
Yes, I'll admit it. Sometimes Adam and I make up songs about mundane everyday things. Today Adam was singing about the cats. Specifically Duncan. Pretty much because Duncan was looking ridiculous and desperate but as if he was trying to hide it. We decided that it was his way of getting food since he knows... Continue Reading →
Adam's parents' cat does not really...um...fit in with our cats. They are a bit brutish with him. However, we had a breakthrough with the cats. They were all amicably near each other within a foot when Adam and I gave them all snacks. Could this be the beginning of a change around here?
The other day Smudge was climbing on me to get to some food on a tv tray - way to go Duncan teaching your brother dumb tricks and bad habits. Adam tried to gently dissuade him with a wee shove but Smudge wasn't ready to budge. So he just casually pierced my fleshy quad with... Continue Reading →
So I'm really into this video game, L.A. Noire. If you don't know about it, it's a pretty revolutionary game where they did all this crazy technology stuff to get real actors to act the parts of the characters and therefore have remarkably life-like game people. Because of this, you have to read the faces... Continue Reading →
Ok, I give in. Mostly because Adam called me a wimp in my comments. Boo hoo - now I'm crying but when I'm done I'm gonna show you and post that dumb painting! That'll show you.... Here is the painitng of Mr. Smudge. It's on his favorite chair to add to the realism. I know... Continue Reading →
So I have been busy these days because I think I want to start going to craft shows....make that a craft show....I've never been before. But I've made baby onesises and cool little magnets, and painted stools for friends and family before, so I figured why not try it out with strangers? I... Continue Reading →
I was watching the show Prime Suspect, which I really like, and was just sketching the main lady character (I don't know her name) and decided to turn it into a Rapunzel thing (Why? I dunno. How did this turn out this way? I dunno, either.). So I made this into a new Rapunzel who... Continue Reading →
My friend sent me this book because she thought I would enjoy it. And I totally do. I'm not sure I'd be willing to dish out money for this, but it's hilarious.
Yeah, this was kinda a rough little drawing, so ignore that. The story is better. Last night Duncan fell asleep on me, which he seldom does. I put a squish pillow on him (otherwise known as a Teddy Log) since cats love having stuff on them, right? So in the middle of the night I... Continue Reading →
Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble! True story: My great friend Emily was studying abroad in Scotland and I went to visit her for a week. She showed me pictures of the Thanksgiving feast they were having at her dorm, which she set up for all her friends. My first thought (and perhaps I said it out... Continue Reading →
When I was in middle school I really liked cats (big surprise, huh?) and I also liked fairies. I know. So anyway, I may have chosen the name FairyCat (actually, FaiRyCaT or something like that) that I used as my email and instant messenger name. Not so bad for middle school but I might have... Continue Reading →
Duncan and Smudge have been on a diet, but this trend started waaaaay before that. Duncan and Smudge are if nothing, excellent measurers. They can tell if they have been fed less than a desirable amount and are quick to protest. Tonight I gave them half a can of Fancy Feast instead of the typical one can... Continue Reading →
I went upstairs today to find Duncan just causally lounging on the countertop staring at the oven. I know he was just making sure it didn't overcook. What a good member of the household...
So Duncan has his favorite toys and everything, but he's gotten really into rubbing his face all over this sword Adam has. I like to think it's because he wants to be a samurai or something.
We've been feeding the kitties Fancy Feast to avoid any more Disasterbetes drama and I've decided it's waaaaay easier to just leave the can and lid on the floor for the kids to clean them all up than trying to stop them from getting into the recycled cans. Plus, I don't have to rinse the cans... Continue Reading →
I totally forgot about this until yesterday when I remembered that Smudge has a chip in his scruff that the cat place put in him. You have to pay a subscription of sorts to get the thing activated, which we didn't do, but he has it and is therefore a real robot cat. I think... Continue Reading →
