I decided to stain the master bedroom windowsill in our house. I had been a natural wood color since we moved in almost two years ago, and this whole time I knew I was going to make it look new and shiny again. I finally purchased the stain – ebony color – and completed my project on a Sunday afternoon. The instructions on the bottle said the paint would dry in one hour. However, checking on it Sunday afternoon revealed the project was nowhere near dry.

This meant we had make the difficult (for me) decision to lock Wyatt out of the bedroom for the night, as the windowsill was a favorite spot of his to hang out, day or night. Let me tell you, Wyatt is not used to being locked out of the bedroom. It’s literally unheard of in our household and is not expected to be taken well by Wyatt. That’s exactly what followed – Wyatt tried to get in throughout the night; I could hear his paws getting at the door and I felt terrible. Anyway, the night passed and morning came.

I checked the paint as soon as we got up – still kinda wet! We knew we had to be careful with Wyatt. Regardless, as soon as we opened to bedroom door, Wyatt was there, darting into the room. And what was immediately his first destination? The windowsill.

I anticipated this and quickly followed him, but by the time I grabbed him, Wyatt left his eternal signature on this project of mine. It’s a perfect paw print and honestly, James and I don’t mind all that much. I think it made for a sweet story. You have to see the pictures to appreciate it fully (I guess you will if you are a cat lover).

    Greetings from Santa Claus…

    I am writing a book about Christmas in San Diego and would like permission to use your 2011 photograph from Christmas Circle in Chula Vista.

    Thanks for your consideration.

      Sure Bill. Look forward to the book. We are actually working on a book of our own. Once we get further along we may see if you can help us shop for a publisher.
