HBG: Toilet Paper Box

Building a fort for them reminded me of the forts I built as a kid!
They are so tiny that we built it out of the toilet paper boxes for the studio…
When my mom and I moved into a new house,
the fridge and washer and dryer were delivered in HUGE boxes.
No furniture yet in the living room, and that is where I built my best fort!

They were so rough on this poor box we had to tie it together…
And then their entire life revolved around examining the knots.

All this came to a screaming halt when they peed in the box.
Their foster mother mistook the kittens for puppies,
apparently, and paper trained kittens… ARGH!
Untraining begins!

BTW, painting a black on black slightly  striped young kitten is not easy….

To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook!  I take commissions!
