The cat statuette

Last year dad painted my portrait, and this year, since he's taking a sculpture class, he's making a wood carving of me. I must say it's very good--so far, he's caught my graceful posture and delicate ears quite well! I do wish he would let me help him, though. Carving is slow work, and with my claws, I'm sure I could make it go faster. But can you believe it? He won't let me help at all, and won't even let me in the room where he is working. He says he doesn't have any safety goggles that would fit me, and he's afraid a wood chip might get in my eye. Nonsense! I'm faster than any wood chip, and would just close my eye if one came near. It's not fair! Last year he wouldn't let me help paint, and now he won't let me help him with sculpture either. How can a cat have any fun? *flips tail disconsolately*

how rude! i bet your daddy's just aware that you'd work a lot more efficiently! they're so strange - one day they're proud of using "tools", the other day they get their inferiority complexes out of that fact. *sigh*

couldn't you steal a wooden block and make your own statuette - that'll SHOW him!

Yeah, I think you should be allowed too.

I agree. You should get some wood and make a statue of your dad! If you can't get any wood, maybe you could make a special sculpture from your litter.
