The East Wind Designer BadgeI had a friend in college with a cat that actually did this to all her curtains.  Chaos (yes, actually his name!) loved to bounce off the walls and land on the curtains.  This always scared him, causing his claws to come out and enter the curtains!

Immediately I knew that I wanted to create this image.  As is typical, the final piece evolved from the original idea.  I had thought it would be a white background and the only color would be the cat.  But, then I wanted a subtle blue in the background.  I didn’t decide how to tieback the curtain until the very end while looking through embellishments.  The silver heart seemed perfect.  So many love our pets, regardless of their picadillos!
