Green Girl.

Lou texted me at work today to let me know our "outside cat" is gone. Our next door neighbor's daughter's dog (or cat? I'm not entirely sure. Some pet of some sort..) died and he took the outside cat to give to her. She was really happy. This outside cat is the epitome of loving friendly lapcat. So I'm glad he could find a good home. But I'm also a little sad because I didn't get to say goodbye! Either way, I'm incredibly relieved that I don't have to drive an hour to the only shelter in Delaware that was actually accepting strays still. I really wish people would be more educated about their animals. Cats (and dogs, and every other pet) aren't toys. You have to educate yourself about their care. And when you're bored with them, you can't just dump them outside.

On the brightside, the flea situation in the apartment is subsiding and now with the "outside cat" gone, things will really start to clear up. The cats aren't acting like the rug is hot lava anymore. But the bad part is with the two of them continuously scratching and licking themselves, they've been throwing up hairballs all over the place. The most terrible one being this morning. The back of my bed has a little ledge where the cats like to walk and we usually put cups of water. Lou woke himself up abruptly this morning by reaching back for the water but instead landing his hand in a nice squishy pile. He claims it was on his pillow too. I think it's kind of funny. But I'm going to assume that's just because it didn't happen to me.

I'm trying my hardest to draw everyday. Usually I'll do it on my break at work because I'm not doing anything else really. Once I gather up the energy (and CA$H!)to buy some more art paper, now that I've decided out of the many samples I tried out, which one I like the best...then hopefully I can get some prints made! I also have to find a good, affordable place to buy some mailers for when they actually sell. Oh, and more business cards (I'm running low...I'll probably print my own now that I have a good printer). And of course an assortment of more promotional buttons and stickers. Okay, there's a lot of steps involved, but I'll get to everything eventually.

But now the question is which is better?

With black outlines...?

Or without...?

I like both. I'm so indecisive.

I like the version with the lines more.

Ah...that'll make it two votes for lines and one for without. I'm making progress!

That is wonderful that the stray cat got a home! I hope Lou warned them that he needs to be treated for fleas otherwise he might be abandoned outside again!

You know I like the lines. She is beautiful.

What are you doing for Halloween regarding the Plinis? Pumpkin heads?
