Kitty Blogging!

Well, I have a new position for using my computer.

Here are some pictures of Raven hanging out in a little sling that my friend Steel City Knitter showed me how to tie.

Needless to say, it's only marginally better than letting him wander about unfettered. And he's been in this for at least an hour now!

Cat Blogging!

Well, it's been an interesting half week here at Ch√Ęteau Underwood-Stockton.

The house was too empty after Friday and by Saturday I was already on the hunt for a new companion.

Today we found him.

He was called Cairo at the Animal Rescue League but we are likely to change his name as soon as we figure out what it is.

UPDATE Thursday: He is now officially called Raven, as in Native American myth.

He is incredibly affectionate and loves to be in your lap and be cuddled. He's also in isolation for now as he has a bit of a cold. Poor thing, his sneezes knock him over!

Oh, the biggest thing is he is very young..... only 5 Months old! (Which for me is a baby) but he's currently nearly the size of a year old cat. His feet are huge and we expect he'll grow into them!

More Cat blogging:

A few weeks ago I bought the kids a decadent Kitty tree from 7th Heaven and finally got a picture of them using it! Brigid is in the little house trying to decide if she's going to pounce on the Buddy. The purple thing to the right is Robin.

Rainbow Bridge Again

This evening I had to make another very hard decision. Selina has been with me for at least 20 years. When I got her she was an ugly stupid kitten that I very nearly gave away. Then she turned into one of the most beautiful cats I'd ever seen.
She had both calico spot and tabby stripes. Egyptian Kohl markings around her eyes.
She had the quietest little mew until she underwent radiation therapy for hyperthyroidism. Then she was the most talkative and demanding creature. :-)
She was my precious baby. My favorite. And I miss her so much.
