Cats know you love it when they lounge in your workspace.  
They also know you love shedding on materials and hard bites to the forearm. 
You love these things.

p.s. see that handsome man behind my handsome cat?  

That's just the best birthday present ever, an original Bret Sarlouis painting of Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.  

p.s.  Please ignore the bright blue bra hanging around my studio - it's for art, I swear.
