Christmas Sales and Appologies from Satan the Cat

Satan_cat_blog

 

Hey everyone
First of all i’d like to appologise on behalf of Satan the cat.

I’ve been so busy adding all the new products in to my photography Gift Shop and my Hippy Gift Shop as well as working on lots of photography and graphics jobs for clients that my fingers haven’t left the computer for long enough to let her write her blogs!

Satan is fine though and is sleeping next to me after finishing off my roast beef dinner.
Our kitchen is nearly finished after the re-fit so we can cook ‘propper’ meals at last!
I was getting so sick of living on pot noodles so i’m well and truly making the most of my husbands wonderful cooking while he’s here…. he goes away again next week and I wont see him untill after Christmas, sometimes i really hate his job!!

 

Satan will be back though as soon as i’m off the computer for more than 5 minuites, i’m sure she has lots of stories to tell you about all the building work that’s been going on, it’s been quite an event for her!

 

I’ll end this blog with a selection of the new gifts available in my shops including new Laptop sleeves, Mobile phone cases, Gift Boxes, Drink coasters, Notebooks, Dinner plates, Jigsaw puzzles but make sure you visit the shops too as there is much more to see.

 

There is still 5 days to order most items for christmas and if you spend $50 or more you will qualify for free shipping if you use code HOLIDAYSALE1 at checkout.

 

I also have some new Christmas designs available including this snowflake necklace that won a ‘Todays Best Award’

Satan on holidays .. or not! (part 3)

Hello eveyone, it’s satan the cat again!
I thought i’d pop on and write another blog before my pre-dinner nap and let you all know that i’ve been told i MUST stay here and guard the house while Pixie and Rich go to Egypt!
I found out that they weren’t going to Turkey so don’t really mind! I’ve heard that the Egyptians are rather fond of cats but it’s going to be way too hot at this time of year and my black fur and I can’t handle too much heat, so while there away scuba diving i’ll be here with the lovely lady who lives next door for company.
She’s such a nice lady and remembers to brush me before i have my breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight feast unlike Pixie who only brushes me before my breakfast!
I’ll kick up a fuss though and ignore Pixie and Rich when they start packing their bags and ignore them both again when they arrive home to make them think i’m not happy staying here with the lady next door, it’d only upset them if they thought i won’t miss them!

 

Anyway enough of me now and i’ll tell you what Pixie has been up to this week with her Hippy Gift Shop.
So far i’ve been thrown off her lap 4 times in a fit of excitement as she’s gained another 4 Todays Best Awards for these items in her shop

She’s also been updating her ‘about me and my art and photography’ squidoo lens that you can see here Squidoo lens – about me and my art It features a rather attractive picture of myself too so i’m quite happy about that.

I’m off for my nap now and am going to start practicing my sulking impressions in time for when they go away!

Satan on holidays (part 2)

You remember I recently said that I had see on TV that dogs sometimes take their humans on holiday and that I am going to persuade Pixie and Rich to let me take them on holiday.
Well, it did not work out as I expected… They have decided to go on holiday but they are NOT taking me with them!
They said it is something to do with going on an aeroplane and going scuba diving when they get there… well, they are certainly right in thinking that I would certainly not want to go on an aeroplane (if cats were meant to fly they would have wings, or a pilot’s license) and as for diving….well, that means water and everyone knows that cats hate water.
Except, of course, for Turkish Van Cats – but then water is probably nice and warm in Turkey. Hang on a minute…Pixie and Rich are flying to their destination, so maybe they are going to Turkey. In which case, why aren’t they taking me?

I shall have to have words (after my nap, of course).

in the meantime heres a few new items from pixies Hippy Gift Shop

A note about insurance – from a Cat!

You remember that I told you in my last blog that Pixie was watching TV and was so impressed by two meercats called Aleksandr and Sergei who are such brilliant salesmen that she phoned in for a car insurance quotation even though she doesn’t even drive – well, the policy arrived and I have just managed to take a look at it. Imagine my surprise to see that it was not car insurance that she took out, but pet insurance. Pixie has insured ME!!! This is wonderful! I think that every cat should be insured (and I should get commission from the meercats).

As for the kitchen, there’s still no improvement and the microwave oven is STILL taking up my space on the sofa and not beings used to cook salmon for cats, i was beginning to think Pixie had forgotten about me as she’s been so busy with her other work so it’s nice to know i’m insured now .. i will have to find out what this means though as i’ve never heard of cat insurance before!

 

Here are a few of the new items from Pixies photography and hippy art shops.

Cats can’t fly

Satan_cat_blog
So there I was, having a snooze on Pixie’s lap (between my afternoon nap and my pre-dinner nap), when suddenly I dreamed that I was flying – or at least airborne.
I was so surprised that I opened one eye – and was then even more surprised to see that I was airborne, so surprised, in fact, that I opened my other eye.  
What I saw confirmed that I really was airborne. This got me thinking, snoozing cats usually carry on snoozing until it is time for food (or a nap). 
They do not suddenly find themselves in mid-air!
I thought about this for a while and remembered that this has happened before. NINE times before, actually. 
I also remembered that each time it had been for the same reason – Pixie, overcome with excitement, had suddenly leapt into the air. 
The reason for this (on all 10 occasions) was that she has been given the “today’s best award” from Zazzle. 
Apparently this is rather special and gets the award-winning project onto the Zazzle home page ….. It also seems to make people suddenly leap into the air!
This is fine unless they happen to have their cat snoozing on their lap at the time.
When they do have their cat snoozing on their lap at the time, the result is that the cat in question gets hurled into the air. 
Not only is this unseemly, but it also fails to take account of the fact that cats can’t fly.
This particular cat could not fly the first time it happened, and I still can’t fly today on the tenth occasion. 
What actually happens is that you go up for a while, then you stop in mid-air for a moment, and then you start falling towards the floor. 
Knowing that this happens at a velocity of 32 feet per second squared (I am NOT a metric cat) does not help much – you still go up, pause, and head towards the floor. 
At least Sir Isaac Newton used an apple, not a cat. (I wonder if dogs fall at 32 feet per second squared – I must do an experiment one day if I can find a tall enough building).

 

Anyway, I was so shocked by this experience that I am having an early dinner. 
It’s canned tuna because, as you might remember, Pixie keeps sitting on the microwave and, hence, cannot use it to cook salmon for cats. 
I think that Mr Jolly (a friend of Pixie’s family) had a good point when he asked why there is no mouse-flavoured catfood, I think I would still prefer salmon, though! 
After dinner I will retire somewhere peaceful (ie NOT Pixie’s lap) for my after-dinner nap.
What a day!

 

Anyway these are Pixies latest ‘Todays Best Awards’ She got two in 1 day so i’m also slightly deaf after the load shrieking sound that she made while i was in mid-air, I hope the ringing in my ears doesn’t wake me from my nap or there will be trouble!
