Feline Friday: Big Little Kitty
Lily is still a kitten. Kittens are, by definition, small. BUT...when it comes to dollhouses, the domain of a much tinier family, even the smallest kitten is TOO LARGE!
A dollhouse under construction sits in my craft area. Over the past few weeks, I've had to extract Lily from the kitchen, living room, and dining area on more occasions than I can count. She enters through the front door or window and proceeds down the main hallway (precisely as wide as her body, mind you) and enters the room of choice. (Sometimes she leaves the back half of her body in another room, which makes extraction quite difficult.) Once in the kitchen or living room, she plays havoc with whatever she finds. Canned vegetables fly, kitchen furniture tumbles, and the carefully decorated Christmas tree rolls out onto the floor.
As a small kitten, Lily spends her days in a world where almost everything is bigger than her. But in the dollhouse, SHE can feel big. She doesn't have to jump up on the kitchen table. Why, with the flick of her paw, she can send it rolling! And that refrigerator? She can open the door anytime she pleases. In the dollhouse, Lily rules.
So last night, I let her stay for a few extra seconds while I grabbed the camera. In spite of the destruction, this was too cute to miss.
