A few trillion (not so) Wordless Wednesday's ago, I told you all about how heartbroken I was over my missing Bomber (read more about that here). After that scare, I decided Bomber needed a proper tag, something more than just her proof of rabies vaccine. Christopher wanted to go down and get one at Petsmart, but no- my kitty is better than that.
Not that there is anything wrong with a pet tag made in a machine, theres not, they've got cute designs that do the job- but... I felt like I really needed to spoil her. If she was the kind of cat that played with toys, I would have gone out and bought her twenty. Cat nip filled, feather topped, rattling strings on a stick- whatever she wanted.
Shes not though. The only thing she likes to play with, are the kids plastic toy apples and mushrooms that get left on the floor after a night of pretend soup making. And its only fun to her, if she finds it. She has to hunt down her produce, after all.
So, not only did I not want to go buy her a boring "here, I got this tin tag out of a machine for you" (not that she would have cared anyways, I know) name plate, but-kicking back with my netbook on the couch and going window shopping on Etsy didn't sound half bad.
And of course, it payed off...
Because I found the most perfect tag for my Bomber. Of course I still had to leave the evidence of her rabies vaccine on, but- isn't her new ID just gorgeous?
I know, silly Tia, its just a pet tag. But (!), its a handmade pet tag, customized just for her. And while she jingles and jangles like the Christmas season (even more so than before) every time she comes down the stairs, I think it suits her like no other tag possibly could.
So go ahead, Kitty Bomber, run away whenever you please. Next time there is a storm, feel free (but don't, please?) to sneak out through the garage door that Christopher left open. My phone number (um... don't call me, ok? Its nothing personal, I just hate talking on the phone, haha) is hanging from your collar, impossible for your finder to miss.
Heee. Pretty kitty.
