Coal Again?

For my slightly-snarky, cat-loving mother-in-law. :) I'm sure she'd love any card with the ever-mischievous Fluffles on it.

ETA - the newest Moxie Fab challenge is up. This challenge theme is all creatures great and small. I have a few Christmas cardinals waiting around begging to get used! However the timing of posting this Fluffles card worked out so well, he's getting entered too. :)

Here's a picture of our own furry friend and his first bought of mischief. Believe me, there have been many! We have the vet bills to prove it. My husband and I had just had a new house built. We hadn't lived there a full week when our pug, Chester, chewed open a ball point pen. Argh! Because he held the pen with his paws while chewing on it, Chester got black ink all over himself. As soon as he got caught, he knew he was in trouble and took off running! Those little paws hold a lot of ink! We had black paw prints stamped all down our hallway and into our living room. Our brand new carpet. *sigh* We now love ChemDry - LOL.

What about you? Any funny or mischievous pet stories to share? I'd love to hear about them. :)
