Oh, I'm sure catnip is not one of the ingredients that went into the plastic of the Simply Scored. Whatever is in the plastic, however, is at the very least as attractive to my sweet cat, Mei Li, as catnip. There are days when I feel as if I should have a reservation for special times during which I can use the Simply Scored. Lately catnap time seems to coincide with my stamping times and when I turn to score my cardstock, I usually find Mei Li sound asleep in the middle of the Simply Scored. Of course I could wake her. I am fully aware of that. It just seems a bit rude and mean to disturb her when all I want is to score a line on some cardstock. Lately, therefore, I have been saving up the pieces of cardstock which require scoring and, when I discover the Simply Scored is actually free for my use, I hurry to use it.
Why would a cat choose to sleep on a piece of hard plastic? There are countless soft places to sleep in my house, even in my Craft Room. There is room on my work table, around the Simply Scored, but for Mei Li it must apparently be the Simply Scored or nothing. The reason remains a mystery. And now I had better stop this entry and hurry to score my cardstock. Mei Li just left the room and the Simply Scored is temporarily mine to use.
