This is the other reason for lost objects in our house. Cats. They get into things. They drag or bat stuff under furniture. I once found four pens under the refrigerator along with various cat toys. The little plastic counting bears are often swatted to the far corners of the house. Marina's knitting has gotten strewn more than once. We have five cats. If you leave it out, it's likely one of the cats will find it interesting.
As I was setting up the comics for this week, Marina came to me all upset because Romeo had ripped the tracing paper guide she made for an embroidery she is working on. You try to hold your breath at times like this. It isn't going to help if I tell her she should have put it away. She knew that. She simply got busy with something else and forgot. It's the fatal flaw of my multi-talented child. You have to make sacrifices for their art.
If you enjoy my comics, the first collection, No School Today? is available from these sellers:
