Also loving the telltale paw prints tying it all together! fab!

ceanirm...

ceanirminger says: Wow, thanks everybody! Macavity has always been one of my favorite poems. I memorized it when I was a kid (Many of your dork alarms are probably ringing right now), so it was a quick decision when this theme came up what I would do. I'm glad you like it, and my favorite is that fat cat, Mungojerrie, too! T.S. Eliot really knows how to names cats!

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: Cean, this is a fantastic design commemorating the fiendish feline exploits of Macavity! T.S. Eliot is one of my own favourite poets and this poem is one that I read when quite young! I had to chuckle when I saw those pattering paw prints wending their nefarious way around your design! We have a cat that leaves such evidence of her visitations. She firmly believes that nowhere is out of bounds to her if she can nose her way into that space! The inclusion of the famous duo of Victorian era sleuths adds another purrtinent literary allusion to this clever design!
