My carpet is pathetic. I complain about it, vacuum it, steam clean it, spray it with spot remover, clean it some more. But it's really sad. I'll spare you a photo. I've got two kids and an over-sixteen-year-old cat. Enough said.
But one of these days I'm going to have beautiful floors. Hardwood. With modern rugs placed artistically here and there to add warmth. Remember I said I used to hook rugs? Well, when I saw the Hooked Cat's Paw it made me want to start it up again! I even remember seeing that exact same traditional pattern in rug hooking catalogs. Ironically, it's the fact that the cat likes to get her paws (and claws) all over my painstakingly hooked rugs that makes having them in my house an impossibility right now.
Sigh. For now I'll just enjoy and appreciate Smokey. One day, I'll have a nice, unscathed couch, hardwood floors and beautiful rugs. I guess it can all wait.
