The first of our 2017 CatCon series: Steph & Kate and their minimalist cat designs…
(buying via the affiliate links my result in more treats for Marcy and Penelope Kitten)
2pm Tuesday afternoon. The Hallway Closet.
Cynthia (yelling): Arghhhhh!!!
Marcy and Penelope Kitten come running to find Cynthia frantically flinging the contents of the closet into trash bags.
Cynthia (flinging): Too. (fling). Much. (fling). Stuff. (fling fling fling).
Marcy and Penelope Kitten duck behind the hallway door.
Marcy (whispering): Looks like she is going all Marie Kondo on us.
Cynthia: We must minimal-ize! (fling).
penelope kitten (whisper squeaking): yeah yeah. saw a pink paper ball and our half eaten feather wand in a trash bag.
Marcy: Yeah. And I saw a couple of catnip mouses.
penelope kitten (plaintitively): awww…those toys “spark joy” for me.
Marcy: Me too. We need a plan.
Cynthia blindly flings a silver lamé miniskirt from 1983 that lands on Penelope’s head.
penelope kitten (squeaking from under the lamé): pronto.
Marcy and Penelope’s Plan:
1. Distract Cynthia with adorable minimalistic cat designs by 2017 CatCon vendors, Steph & Kate.
The designers, Miranda and Molly Richardson, are avowed minimalists which is reflected in their designs for “kids, cats, and their parents”.
2. Once Cynthia is mesmerized by minimalistic cats drawn in whimsical clean lines with a fresh black and white aesthetic –
3. the kitties will rescue their toys from the trash bags while Cynthia fills up her shopping cart.
Marcy: One. Two. Three. Activate!
Marcy shoves the computer in front of Cynthia as Penelope Kitten dives into the trash bags.
Cynthia’s eyes widen and become transfixed on Steph & Kate’s beautiful cat designs. As Miranda and Molly say – “We believe everything you have should be your favorite thing.”
Cynthia: OMG (oh my gato)! Everything in this shop is my new favorite thing!
(minimalistic) Mission: Accomplished.
