Helping: Kitty Style...

I like to help Mommy with her beading although for some reason she gets very nervous when I do. I think it's because she's worried I'll over-do it and tire myself out. Anyway, an example of her worry wart tendencies came out when we needed to make an adjustment to a bracelet. I tried to look distracted in order to put her at ease... Then I walked by the bracelet to better give her an idea of how much to adjust it by...
Again, I tried to look distracted by pretending to bite on the thing-a-ma-bobs in her bead box... I then tested the sturdyness of her board thing-a-ma-jig to make sure the beads don't break through it...
See, there was no reason for her to be nervous with my help was there? Beading is hard work though so I'll just lay here and warm my Tortie booty in the sunlight...
I should certainly get extra treats for working so hard on the weekend!

Hope you have a relaxing Sunday!
Isabella

Maybe your human should give you treats even BEFORE you start work! Just to show how much she appreciates you.

LOL. I love your "distracted" look, Isabella ;-)
Hope you got yummy treats for helping Mommy adjust that bracelet!

Happy Sunday and hope you all have a relaxing 1. advent...

take care,
Duni

Good to see you relaxing after all that work Isabella. Keep up the good work.

It looks as if you are a very good helper. I tried to help HH with her art back in the day. She did not appreciate it much either. Always saying, "Careful, Max... careful, Max." and such...

Have a great Sunday.

Pawhugs, Max

Hee hee, if your Mom sold her stuff on eBay, she wouldn't be able to say the jewelry came from a "pet free home"! WE sure don't mind - all our things we have gotten on Etsy came with kitty love energy included.

We don't know what your mom would do without your help, Isabella! Enjoy your sunshine...we have rain today. :(

Marg said...

Oh Isabella, you are such a big help and we know the Mom does appreciate all your hard work. You sure do deserve some mighty big treats. Hope all of you have a wonderful Sunday.

Isabella, we think you make your Mom nervous because you are so exacting and she's afraid to make a mistake!

Whisppy said...

Oh my. I got all nervous just looking at how you help your Mommy...
We hope you got some treats for all your hard work, Isabella!

Grace said...

I'm sure it goes without saying but extra treats are warrented as well for all your labor. And Tortie Butts in the Sun are BEST!

Oh Isabella. You are an inspiration to me and all the other kitties who see this. I like what Simba said..that everything she has gotten ( and my mommy) on ETSY come infused with kitty loves and kitty energy. You showed us how that happens. I hope I get your purrsonal stamp of approval or Angel's as well with my next order.

Isabella, you're such a good helper with the measurements and all. Kitty and doggy treats for everyone!

Sherpa helps by storing the publicist's completed pieces in a very good, secure location. Even the publicist cannot find them.....

Natalie said...

You definitely should get extra treats! It's clear that you're working very hard indeed.

storybeader said...

nice for you both to have the sun to work in! {:-D

Sher said...

Love your helper! I used to have a helper like that. That cat now lives with my daughter.

Au and Target said...

What a nervous nellie your mummy is! As though you'd swallow a bead, or get your paws hurt by the thread... hmm, maybe not so silly to worry after all. Be careful, Isabella!

Overtime definitely some reward, and treats seem like the best ever.

Hope you got a chance to rest today too.

My Mom would freak out if I did what you were doing Isabella! Your Mom is very trusting! And you're a good help. Love, Moon

My dear, if you are unappreciated in your home you may come here where I would LAVISH you with praise and cuddles...

Looks like a big tray of cat toys, right!

Catherine said...

You are a very good helper sweet Isabella. Extra treats are a must when one is working so hard. ;)

Lin said...

Oh, you kitties are such "helpers"! I used to quilt a lot and the kitties would magically appear, just as I laid out the squares on the floor to sew them together. Sigh. Yeah, GREAT helpers! Ugh.
