The Princess and the Pea
I was vacuuming the other day and I had stacked the deck furniture cushions on the couch. My dad had thrown one of the couch cushions on top. And that’s where I found Ivory the next morning.
This picture reminded me of the story of The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen. I frequently call Ivory “Princess” because she can act like one. She gets shaved because she won’t let anyone brush here. And forget about trimming her nails. Luckily, she doesn’t do too much kneading, unlike Gidgette. You can listen to various versions of the story here.

My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.
I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.
My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.

Here’s a piece of trivia for you… Did you know that “The Princess and the Pea” was made into a Broadway musical called “Once Upon a Mattress”? It starred Carol Burnett (I assume you are not to young to remember her), and it was her first big break in show business.
I came across that factoid while reading the Wikipedia article. And I loved Carol Burnett 🙂
