You've so obfuscated the process, after careful study, I've decide to call you Shirley.

In my defence, it's been like thirteen years since I saw that movie. And I was very young, so I can't say I remember that much of it.

Of course, we still have the fact that "Shirley" doesn't rhyme with "surely" any more than "surly" rhymes with "sorely"...

Here's my contribution...

Loki, a bit noisy, it was dark in here, as usual, but I like it. This is very typical of him. He likes to slide under blankets etc. He is the mighty Destroyer of Sheets. I go through a new set about every 3 months. I've tried training him out of it, but he's a stubborn little beast and he loves putting holes in them and eventually shredding them. I clip his nails which helps some but he uses his teeth too so there's no real stopping him. Blankets hold up to his abuse pretty well but there's no sense buying good sheets around here anymore.

I buy the $15 microfiber cheap sheets now. Short of de-clawing him and putting a muzzle on him there's no other alternative and I won't abuse him by de-clawing him. I put heavy covers on my furniture, try to keep the blanket over the sheets but evil beastie that he is he just crawls up and under the blankets and has his wicked way with my bed linens no matter what...

Yes, the sheets are bright orange and the blanket colors are that dayglo. I've been on this pseudo Indian boho kick lately with the bed linens and in particular I have an orange thing going on. I've been using it a lot as an accent color. Next set will probably be deep peacock blue or maybe lime. You can't see it in this pic but all those colors are in the blanket. I love that blanket actually. It's SO soft...

QS1 pic with the 50mm Auto 110 lens, 800 iso, dark room, no flash. The Q is pretty noisy at this iso. I've got to remember that and use 400 maybe, add more light. This was too noisy for me. NR helped but I lost some sharpness as a result. Not cool. I have to be quick with Loki though, so no time to fiddle a lot. He moves at the speed of light this one and does not stay still for long...

Solution;
1. Keep him off the bed.
2. Keep him out of the bedroom.


If he does have a scratching post, buy him one.

And you're surprised that he keeps showing his disgust by shredding those sheets?
