Feline Friday

Mr. Moose - long legged, sleek and trim, the most fearless kitten I have ever met. Nothing scares him, when he hears a strange noise he runs toward it to check it out. He does not show much respect of the older (and much bigger) cats, he tackles them every chance he gets. He loves to wrestle with the boys and the girls don't like him much, I hope they will come around eventually. From the first night on he slept in our bed, sometimes tucked under my chin, snuggled under the blanket, sometimes curled up behind Del's knees or stretched out between us. He has a tremendous amount of energy in the morning, then he eats, crashes in his favorite spot and is not seen until later in the afternoon. He is smart and funny and I am glad he came home with us.

Ornament #2

My project for 'One Christmas Item A Month' for February was this little cross stitch pillow.

MamaCat was busy helping with the stitching.

A blanket of his own

Sometimes I surprise myself. I must be a faster knitter than I thought, Mr. Moose's blanket is finished. I found a ball of baby yarn in my stash and decided that the color goes well with his quilt. I finished it over the weekend and now it is waiting for him to discover it (at the moment Leo is testing it for him).

A Quilt for Mr. Moose

All my cats have their own quilts and knitted blankets. Today I made a quilt for Mr. Moose and started on his knitted blanket, which will take a while, I knit fast but not that fast. Looks like he is enjoying his new quilt.

I fell in love ...

... and the rest is history, as they say.

We took our gang to the vet this morning for their booster shots and there in a cage was a pretty little kitten. We had to wait quite a while and he and I got acquainted. His is very sweet and gentle and so pretty, and his name is Mr. Moose, he is about 6 months old.

Meet the newest family member.

Right now he is getting to know the rest of the family and funny enough, he is doing the hissing and growling, but there has been some butt wiggling and a first attempt at playing with the smallest of ours - Mr. Franky. He is very playful and self confident, the others are very curious about him and I hope they will soon all get along.

I am probably out of my mind, but that just had to happen. And he is already fixed, had his first shots, is flea free and de-wormed. He was found at a construction site and lucky for him, a kind man brought him to the vet's office.

He already found his favorite spot - the window bench, and he already fell off of it as well going after a toy. And he just walked across my keyboard, not shy at all, the little fella. Oh boy, are we in for an exciting Spring. Wish us luck!

I also think that Del will never again take me along to the vet. :-)

Valentine's Day

My Valentine's Day gift, sock yarn and a pretty mug, so much better for me than chocolate. The yarn is soft and squishy and earmarked for this project and I am looking forward to get started soon.
