WCB #42

Let me tell you a little story about a kitty named Claudia.

One day last year, Claudia's dad brought her to school with him for "Bring Your Daughter to Work Day." Claudia's dad was reading his students "Charlotte's Web," which captivated Claudia's attention. Once the story was over, Claudia began to beg her dad for her very own pig, whom she wanted to name Chester.

Claudia's dad told her that she already shared her home with two other kitties, including her mother, Chubbie, and her brother, Louie, and that there really wasn't room in the house for a pig. He told her to wait until Christmas, and he would see what he could do.

Christmas came and went. Claudia did not receive the pig she so desired.

And she's worn the expression of pure disgust and loathing you see in this picture ever since.

For more pictures of kitties, who hopefully look happier than Claudia, head over to Clare's.

Coming soon: My dear, thoughtful, and sneaky husband threw me a suprise 30th birthday last night at our local art gallery's restaurant. My sister Karrie is here from Seattle! It was a wonderful party of family and friends, and I feel much-loved this morning. Stay tuned for a full recap, probably Monday.

    She does look a little bit like a sour-puss, but she's still very pretty!

    Oh you should get her a catnip filled piggy. She'll turn that frown upside down-- or maybe slightly lopsided!
