Today’s Purse and Shoes…and Gratuitous Cat Butt Shots

Published in: Daily Photo

If I had to wager a guess, I’d say that 60% of my time is spent gently pushing cat butt out of my face…


Seriously, Tabs is so proud of the junk in his trunk! He’s always showing that thing off.

It was crisp and cool here this morning, but still warm enough to get away with bare feet, so I wore one of my favorite pairs of shoes, the Braided Chain Michael Kors Platforms I got myself for my birthday a couple years back.

They’re pretty comfy…as far as heels go.


The purse is the Zella Gathered Tote, otherwise known as “My Everything But the Kitchen Sink” bag. I think it might actually be big enough to carry Tabs!

Naw, no way. Nothing’s that big. 🙂

What about you? What purse and shoes are you wearing today?

    OHMYGOSH! Love the shoes! I’m headed to DSW on Friday, to look for some strappy, sparkly, black (not too high) heels.

    Today was a chores day. Just wore my grey low chucks and my everyday coated canvas Gucci tote. I need to step up my game and put some more effort in my outfits of the day. *sigh*

    You got me painting my paws regularly, though 🙂 Taking baby steps here. Next stop: eyeshadow experimenting!

    Hope hump day treated you all well! 😀

    LOL on the cat butt! I think maybe it is a male kitty thing? My cat is a boy cat and he does the same. but all the female cats I have cat-sat never did.

  4. that shoe this bag more beautiful and the photo is amazing with furry tail and gorgeous tabs

    Her feet are beautiful Karen, and were even more with this sandal

    I use tennis or undergrowth during the day, the accounting office where I work has a lot of chores, and not soap combines with heels lol

    Most everything perfect this weekend I love the thin heel sandals

    A kiss Tabs and Karen Love you guys

    Girl, those shoes are fab!

    Today I had some Carlos Santana Black Suede ankle booties (like this, but I got them cheaper: and a camel cross-body Carlos Santana handbag (, perfect for walking. The shoes are hella comfortable, I actually bought them in taupe first, and loved them so much I got them in black. Despite the heel, I can walk the half-mile to work and school in these and not feel a thing.

      Oh those are super cute! I might have to break down and get a pair. How does the part around the ankle fit? I’ve been trying on booties, and the thing that I am so picky about is the edge of the boot. Often times it cuts into my ankle and I just can’t handle it. This material looks really soft…

      • Chelsea says:

        I don’t have that issue at all – they’re quite wide, slip on, with no zipper. I also have really skinny ankles, but my skin is really sensitive and I know the cutting in feeling – haven’t had that issue!

    Today was just a boring work day 🙁 Some shoes with traction for my retail job, and my beloved brown leather messenger bag! Cats are too funny with that tush thing, my parent’s old cat used to do the same thing to all of us too.

    Love your shoes! Fortunately you asked me on a good shoe day (yesterday I was wearing sheepskin slippers on my day off, haha) : Balenciaga brogue ankle boots and Alexander Wang Rockie bag with aged gold hardware.

  11. Jess says:

    AHAHAHAHAHA…cat butt. I can so relate! I have a brown tabby boy at hoome and he likes to back that thing up in my face all. the. time.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jess,

      Isn’t it hilarious how they’re so proud of their booties? Tabs does this move where he’ll walk away, flash his bum, and then look back at you to make sure that you are watching, LOL! It’s hilarious.

      What’s your tabby boy’s name? How long have you been his assistant?

  12. Jess says:

    His name is Max and I came into his employ about six years ago.:-) I was at the local humane society passing out applications, and luckily, he decided to give me a chance. 🙂

    I read something once about male brown tabby cats being known for big personalities, and I don’t know if there’s any science to back that up but I’m inclined to believe it, because I keep hearing stories to that effect!

    Hi Karen, The Zella Gathered Tote is unavailable now. Do have suggestions for other fashionable gym bags for short girls?
