LUCKY CAT-ur-day! Good luck!

Happy LUCKY "CAT-ur-day!"  We sent mom off to take a nice warm bubble bath so we could do OUR own {cooler} Saturday/Caturday Giveaway post!  First, I'd like to introduce you to me- the  boss of the Basin...Oliver!  I'm the one in the sweet glasses and fine tie!  Since it's Friday, if you're like're thinking get "meowta" here so you can get to the weekend!  As you can see by the pics- the 4 off us put in long hours this week drawing, erasing, sewing & packing!  "Fureal", we did!  You didn't think mom really does it all, do you?!?  And... we made sure and added our special touch by leaving a little cat hair on the projects so you'd know "FUR" sure which ones we made!!  We really had to get our paws dirty and had to start working because we got sick of looking out the window waiting for mom to come home!  She's always working!  You know we would move "Meowtains" for her!  She loves & takes such good care us fur babies!  Before we started working at the BASIN, it seemed like all we did was eat & sleep while we waited until what felt like "CAT-ur-day" to see her!  We really love our work and are thinking of expanding into yoga wear for cats!  We think we could be on to something big here folks!  ������OK!!! We better wrap this up in case she gets out of the bath!!!  Since we are curious cats... We want to know what your pets and/or you have been up too!  You could also post a pic of your pets working or playing with you!!!  And be sure to show them my new tie & glasses-Ok?!?

I thought today was suppose to be "Lucky" Friday?!?!  My early morning took a crazy turn as I was leaving work at 3:20 am.  As I was leaving I noticed smoke in my car windows.  I opened the door thinking it was maybe the charger burning?!?  Kept checking/called GW & 911.  Then I opened the door behind the drivers seat I noticed everything was burning- then it burst into flames.  I was trying to save important items (not a wise idea, I know)...but then decided I better shut the doors to try to contain it...  Next thing you know the cops, firemen, canine unit & investigators where on the seen... They believe it was arson (maybe kids or druggies looking for $) as the same thing happened right before I called in just a couple doors down behind the shop.  They sent some things into the BCA(?)...  They said it easily could have been on fire for a few hours....  Luckily, my car didn't blow up & catch the shop on fire (about 3 feet away)!  Still processing what happened...  Who would do this?!?!?  Lost a lot of "good stuff" from bolts of fabric, wool, models, new camera & I have a on the go studio in my car etc... Such a bummer!
