Love is a rose

My most recent post was about the cat card I made for my neighbor’s birthday over the weekend. Turns out, she received yellow roses from her sister. And then an identical delivery of yellow roses due to florist error. Instead of keeping all that glory for herself, my generous neighbor offered me one of the bouquets. I just collected it from her and decided I wanted to document it on this ol’ blog, so set it on the floor in a patch of natural light.

Marcel immediately came to investigate.

And Marcel? Well, he sees the rose and its thorns, then proceeds to snack on the surrounding foliage.

  1. Wonderful photo! As a care taker of several cats I am quite aware of the potential loss of foliage that may happen with any plant that enters the house. It can sometimes be a challenge.

  2. I love the picture! I hope Marcel left the eucalyptus alone. Its toxic to cats. I myself am allergic to eucalyptus, even though I’m not a cat, but it would be pretty cool to have a tail though, I think.
