    • The Cat Who Could Walk Through Walls (Part 2) Jan 12

      6 days ago

      SailorGirl81 Keeper Of Kittens

      After three days my break was over and I went back to work. I let the cats out in the morning and they greeted me in the yard when I came home. I made sure each day before I locked the door that all three of them were definitely outside. Nothing weird happened, so I relaxed. Another 3-day break and chores went by and then another 2-2-2-80 string began. (two days, two mids, two eves, 80 hours off). The first day of the string, I let all three of the cats out in the morning. When I came home two of them greeted me. I opened the door with trepidation. Yawning wide as he turned his head, Abby blinked at me from inside the house where he had been sleeping on the floor. I felt goose bumps all over my body and even the hair on my head standing on end.  HOW WAS HE GETTING INSIDE THE HOUSE?? And the other two were NOT??


                     No one at work had any explanations to offer. None of us could come up with any way that only one 3-legged cat could utilize, but two perfectly healthy cats could not. I mean, if all THREE of the cats were greeting me inside the house when I got home I would know that there was a good explanation. But only one? The black one? The one with only three legs? I was getting creeped out.


                     I finished out the string and had only one goal for the three day break. To figure out just how Abby was getting into the house, even if he was dematerializing to do it! It was another gorgeous summer day and I decided I wanted some flowers in the tiny front yard. I could sleuth and plant at the same time.  I stopped at a nursery just down the road and got some lovely petunias. The cats were “helping” me while I dug up a place to put the flowers and I didn't want them tracking stuff into the house so I closed the door. Shadrach and Meshach liked to climb the tiny tree in the tiny yard and were having fun doing that.


                     I was standing back to get a good look at the flowers and trying to decide if I needed to put in more or maybe just a fence when I was startled by a loud rustling noise. I had never noticed it before but there was a shoddy trellis in the other yard covered with several years’ worth of vines. It was right next to the wall between the two yards and it was shaking.


                                    “What the…??” I stepped back, terrified that it might be a giant spider or who knows what!


                     Then the creature on the trellis came into view and my mouth dropped open wide.


                     It was Abby. Using only the talons on his front paws he was climbing the trellis. He climbed it all the way up to the balcony where he calmly got off and entered the house through the open window under the persiana. I had stood there in shocked silence watching him the whole way, with my mouth still gaping wide. Then I turned and looked at the two cats in the tree where I had never seen Abby.


      They looked back at me. I just shook my head.


                     Anytime someone heard about or saw my 3-legged Abby and said “Poor kitty” my response was always, “Not even remotely. It barely slowed him down enough for me to keep up”

           It was another beautiful day and I was going to sleep through it again as usual I grumbled to myself as I turned into my apartment complex. Why doesn't it ever rain on my double backs? I pulled up to my place (numero veintiuno) and got out of my little Seat 600 jingling the keys. Two little orange and yellow fur balls shot to the door from their hiding places meowing loudly. “We’re hungry! Where have you been? Let us in!” 


                                    “Where’s Abby? “ I asked them. They didn’t answer. Great. Now I would have to go find the little 3-legged nuisance before I could go to bed.

                     I unlocked the door and was greeted by a smug furry black face meowing “What took you so long?”


                                    “What the…how did you get in?” He didn't answer me either.


                     Hmmmm he must have snuck back in during the morning kerfluffle at the door when I left for work and I hadn't noticed. Whatever. At least now I could go right to bed and get as much sleep as possible before I had to be back to work in seven hours. 


                     I worked the rest of my string and finally had three whole days off. The weather was still beautiful and all three of the kittens wanted to spend as much time as possible outside. They were good outdoor kitties and my complex was off the main road. I usually let them stay out when I went to work on my day watches. This day I need to go to the commissary to get groceries and wouldn't be gone long. I hopped into my small rust bucket and left the three of them playing in the tiny front yard.


                     When I came back with bags of necessities and fresh milk Shadrach and Meshach, the orange and yellow brothers, greeted me briefly and went on with their wrestling. “So, not going to help me carry in groceries are you? Moochers!” I watched them for a bit and then went in the house to put away my purchases. Abby looked up from where he was sprawled on the tile floor “what did you bring me” in his expression.


                     I stopped dead in my tracks.


                                    “HOW did you get in the house??!!”  I was certain I had left all three of them outside playing before I went to the base.  He ignored me and saunter-limped out the open door.


                     After putting everything away in the cupboards and refrigerator I had some chores to do. Cleaning the litter box was my least favorite. I kept it on the balcony upstairs outside the second bedroom. I left the sliding glass door open enough for the cats to get in and out. Southern Spain doesn't have bugs to worry about, or at least not the kind that would come in an open window. Then I lowered the persianas (metal horizontal perforated shutters) to keep out thieves and to hide the fact that the door was open.


                     Finished with my chores I picked out a tape and settled down on the couch to watch the movie. The kitten brothers hopped up to join me. A delightfully cool breeze formed between the open front door and the open window in the living room. Abby limped in from outside and decided to watch with us. He settled on my lap and purred loudly as I stroked him. I hadn't been able to find any hole or crack in the walls of the house while I was cleaning earlier. I thought I had found a way he could get in when I discovered the drainage hole under the kitchen window, but there was a grate over it. 

       

                     Abby seemed like a normal enough cat. Although still really a kitten he had already used up several of his nine lives.  He had gotten caught in a rat trap and by the time he was found it was too late for the lower portion of one of his back legs. A lady in the choir on base had taken care of him but couldn't keep him. Somehow I had been suckered into bringing him home to join with the other kittens, brothers from the same litter.


                     However, having a partial hind leg didn't slow him down at all. Even when Shadrach and Meshach ganged up on him, he had no trouble holding his own. Unfortunately this meant his stump was constantly bloody from all the physical contact. I was afraid it would get infected so I had the base vet remove the entire leg. The incision healed quickly and the fur grew back almost immediately. Whereas before constantly banging the stump had slowed him down somewhat, now there was nothing holding him back. He may have had only three legs but his limping run was twice as fast as either of the other cats. I had no worries leaving him outside with the others. Plus the apartment next door had a walled yard they could take refuge in if necessary. There was a gap between the wall and the house just big enough for them to slip through if a dog should come by.


                                    “Are you a supernatural cat?” I asked Abby as he lay in my lap purring. He ignored me. I sighed.

      When I got home from RTX this past year and couldn't find the painting of Jenny you gave me, I was too mortified to tell you I lost it! I was really kicking myself all winter long, until our new baby cat went pawing around some luggage and turned it up. Takes a cat to find a cat!


      Now I'm so happy that I get to hang your cat art on my wall! Jenny's never looked better~

        yeah... about that....were sending more troops BACK...
        1st Inf Div HQ just went back, and you can bet more are going...

        cant win a war without ground troops, everyone knows this (except Washington..), you need ground troops to occupy what you take to deny it from the enemy, kinda like punching a bucket of water, the air strikes scatter ISIS (the water) but when we stop or pullback they are fluid and just fill back in, we need forces to hold what we punch so that there is less and less for them to stand on.yeah... about that....were sending more troops BACK...

        It's a 12x12 so $35 plus postage should do it.

      What exactly goes into your style? What form do you use to get your works to look like they do?

      • SailorGirl81 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Keeper Of Kittens

        Thanks! Yes, they're all physical with the exception of a couple of digital ones of RT staff.

        All those portraits are physical media? Wow, impressive work I must say.

        Hi, thanks for the question!

        I work almost entirely in physical media, especially for portraits (although I do some digital for non-portraits)

        I start by preparing a support. Lately I've been using mat-board. Preparation consists of doing random stuff to it. I might use paint spritzers, collage, layer multiple stencils, smear leftover paint or anything else I feel like doing including combinations of all of the above. Sometimes I have a color scheme I want to use.

        When it comes time to paint a portrait I go through the already prepared supports and pick one or prepare a new one specifically for that portrait if none of them appeal to me on that particular day.

        Right now I'm using acrylic paint or other water media although I also work in oils.

      Hey pretty lady! I'm helping out a new person to the site and she has questions about the art forums that I can't answer. Would you be able to help her? She's LucyRogers on the site.

  • Questions answered by SailorGirl81

    Draw everyday. Draw quickly. Don't expect every drawing to be a masterpiece, most of them will be awful. Learn from what doesn't work. Draw anything and everything.

    I think by foot and by watercraft as there are a lot more waterways than there are rail road tracks. That would allow me access to more places without have to walk so far. But if I wanted to only travel from city to city I'd definitely go by train and by foot.

    Totally didn't see the question so sorry for the very late response.

    Man, so many memories it's hard to pick a favorite one....maybe sitting on the flight deck at the front of the carrier with my legs dangling over the bow as we finished transiting the Suez Canal north and re-entered the Med after a very long, hot time in the Persian Gulf.

    Well my profile picture is a little different. It's a digital combination of two paintings I did. One is an abstract (the orange and purple bits) and one an un-self portrait of me in a burnoose. I call it a un-self portrait because the instructor made me do a self portrait and I didn't want to so I took my glasses off, wrapped my head and face in the burnoose and looked in a mirror and painted away blurry vision and all. It actually came out pretty good.

    Unless your'e asking about the holiday one in which case Christmas!

    It's still Red Vs Blue.


    I'm enjoying RWBY (although I'm not as emotionally invested in it as some people). I like the Let's Plays in Achievement Hunter (GTA and Minecraft particularly). Oh, and RTAA, I LOVE what Jordan does with deceptively "simple" animation.

    Good question! I definitely plan the more complicated paintings and think about how I'm going to go about the process and how I want the finished piece to look. For one person portraits I'm more spontaneous and open to happy accidents.
