Tantrums Will Get You Everywhere.....

I very often paint cats that are wearing very funky, very chunky, very groovy, oh-so-swoovy high heeled shoes. I didn't own a pair myself until last week when we were in Quebec and SHE filled the Red-Shoe Shaped Hole in my heart. My painted cat shoes came to life. In my size. Un. Believeable. John Fluevog shoes are cool.
BOOBOO owns many different sets of shoes and her collection is quite eclectic. Strappy sandals, flip-flops, loafers, sneakers, mary-janes and cowboy boots. She does NOT, however, own a pair of very funky, very chunky, very groovy, oh-so-swoovy red high heels. When she saw mine, she cried. She bawled. She threw a tantrum. She caterwauled.
It doesn't help matters that I have been wearing my shoes all day-every-day ( a 24 hour All You Can Feet Buffet for my toesies) while unpacking the squillions of boxes canvas reproductions we brought back with us from Ontario. I am just making BooBoo jealous. She has gone on a hunger strike (and I am just going to let her ride that wave for another day or two) and then I will try to get her her own set of Red Darlings. Tantrums WILL get you everywhere......................
