"What you can't live without" LO

The 1st challenge of Oct. over at Better Living Through Scrapbooking is "what you can't live without."  Took me a while to think about that.  Junky candy?  I'm in the process of proving to myself that I can live without it (or at least without as much as I usually have.)  Hubby and Boy?  Yeah.  Definitely but I wanted something else other than them (sorry boys.)  Crafting?  Yeah but I wanted something more tangible.  Then I realized I've always had cats in my life, always will and the few years I was without, I visited cats of my friends.  Some cats are friendly.  Some aren't.  Some like to be held and cuddled.  Others, not so much.  However, I always like having cats around.  When the world's just not fair, sometimes you don't want to go to a person to grunch but a cat.  Cats don't tell you where you're wrong (or occasionally right).  They don't judge.  They're great listeners (until they get bored, irritated or hungry) and usually petting them makes both parties happy.  So.  I decided I couldn't live without cats.  And no.  I DON'T want to be the crazy cat lady in another 10-40years, thanks for asking!

I found the sketch over at Sketchy Thursday and loved it so I had to squeeze it in this week.
