Shabby Chic.....

My friends Milo and Alfie over at Their house are hosting a shabby chic day. We have plenty of my efforts to make our home shabby chic. Here are a few..... The door on the bottom of our stairs. I scratch this if mum and dad are upstairs and I am downstairs and the door gets closed.. I think the decoration is improved but I don't think mum and dad agree..
This is the arm of the leather chair now I have to say I think the scratch worn look goes very well for shabby chic....
Now this is my masterpiece.. It is mums faux leather work box/ footstool and for some reason I cant resist getting my claws in. Mum has it covered now with a blankie and I share it with mums feet. Mum thinks she will have to throw it out and get a new one.. I like this one..
Mum and dad say they would put up with any amount of shabby chic if I was well. We will keep everyone informed of my vet trip and results.. Thank you everyone for your caring, suggestions and love we so appreciate it and it is keeping mum going to know you all care.. Love and hugs GJ xx

Great job with the shabby chic style in your house. Mom says at least I don't scratch the furniture, but I've pretty much destroyed her carpet with my stains!

Still purring for you this week.

Faux leather is catnip in furniture form - irresistible.

Faux leather is evil and must be destroyed! Nice job GJ. We hope you are feeling better soon so you can get back to your art.

I love it!!! It makes me SO happy that someone else's house has the same wear and tears that my own does. I think it's rather stylish, myself! :) Thoughts and purr-ayers are always with you, Jasper. I am praying that they find out what is causing you to feel so icky. xoxox

I think your work is beautiful, GJ - I can't believe your human would even think of throwing away that footstool after all your efforts to beautify it.

Your leather work is especially impressive. I am sure the humans especially appreciate that.

I am purring hard for you, GJ! Do you drink any water? If not, I wonder if you are dehydrated and need some sub cutaneous fluids.

Kari said...

Mum says "hurrah"; we've finally become fashionable!

We are prayig hard for you, dear. And we have everything crossable crossed that the vet finally discovers why you feel so awful. Hopefully you will be able to be started on steroids and the vet absolutely must give you an appetite stimulant. We love you so much. God bless you.

Kari said...

P.S. Don't forget to ask the vet about fluids if you are not drinking.

Princess Jasmine said...

Sometimes the humans just don't recognize good artistic work when it is right there in front of them. We too have done our share of claw-work - masterpieces, if you ask us:)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hmmm, you have done some redecorating, haven't you, GJ. We hope you get to feeling better soon. You've got to start preparing for next year's Shabby Chic post.

caspersmom said...

Ginger Jasper you deserve an award for your decorating skills. I think you did a very good job.

When Cleo got a hairball that she couldn't pass she didn't eat or drink either. All she did was sleep and lay around. Mom could tell she wasn't feeling good and took her to the Vet and Vet Sandy got quite a bit of laxatone down her. When she finally had a bowel movement later in the day she passed a good sized hairball, then she went back to normal. Now Mom feeds us a hairball formula food. So far it has worked for Cleo, although Mom prays a lot for her to keep having bowel movements as she will don't lick laxatone of her paws like Patches does and Mom can't get laxatone down her like the Vet did.

Shabby Chic is just another name for well loved! Great decorating job, GJ! Continuing to send woos of positive thought to mum and dad and howls of strong White Dog healing energy to you, my friend.

You are leaving great signature everywhere in the house,
and I think that is quite neat!!!

♥Da fambly kitties♥ said...

You are on our minds all of the time. There must be a cause for your illness and there must be a way to treat it.

If I didn't know better, your symptoms seem to be so much like feline diabetes. I haven't seen in your bloggy - have you been checked for that?

Junior and Orion said...

Just stopping by to check up on you GJ! We will keep purring!

Kari said...

Caspersmum had an excellent idea about fur balls. Although you were shaved, we bet you groomed a lot as the new furs grew in. Are you passing anything solid in your tray?
We are waiting anxiously to hear the results of your latest tests and what the vet has found.
You know , if there is anything that you need/want that we have here in the U.S., just say the word. It would be a privilege for us to send it off to you.
We adore you sweet Jasper. Continued prayers and puts for you and your family.

Nice to see we are not the only house that has some "love marks" :)
