Cat Claws Tear Vinyl Wallpaper

November 11, 2021

This cat hated and hissed at me for the first two days I worked in his home. But by the end of the third day, he was my buddy – my curious buddy. Here he is, laying claim to my work table – and making himself quite comfy on his owners’ new grasscloth wallcovering.

The danger of pointing this out to a homeowner is that, once your eye learns to pick it out, from now on to forevermore, you will be seeing …

Spacemen in the wallpaper.

Look above the center diamond. There is a spaceman jumping upwards into the stratosphere. Next look to either side of the diamond. There are twin spacemen, with their helmets pointing right and left, away from the diamond.

Elsewhere on the paper, there is a distinct cat’s head.

And you thought it was just an ink blot!
