It's just big enough for my monitor and keyboard, with a little space to write notes - but that's about it. It's just for working, and so I deliberately kept it small and physically separated it from my stamping surface so that my computer doesn't distract me when I am creating.
However, there is no space small enough to keep out a cat.
There is one cat in particular that has perfected a passive aggressive ninja technique in this tiny space.
The right side of my desk is against the wall. So there's only about 8 inches between my keyboard and the wall - and that's where my mouse and my modem are. There's no room for a cat.
But there's frequently a cat there. Specifically, Maddie - my little 6 pound elephant.
Here's what she does.
She jumps up onto the right side of my desk where there's no room for her and just sits there staring at me. If I look at her, she does a slow, hypnotizing blink. This blink is what Jackson Galaxy explains in his book as the cat "I love you". (A realization which launched his career, BTW.)
If I look away from her, or move my hand, she moves closer to me, 1/8" at a time. Eventually I can no longer reach my mouse, but she pretends she hasn't moved, and just slow blinks at me.
She keeps at it until I give up and pick her up and put her around my neck for her daily hug.
She's really perfected her mind control techniques since the remodel.
You have to admire her pluck.
Cats I think all have an inflated sense of self. They lack no confidence. There are no insecure cats walking around, worrying what other cats think of them.
That's what inspired this card. I actually designed this card in my head at Convention last summer, when Pam Morgan was explaining the antler trend.
It only took me 4 months to get around to putting antlers on a cat.
