A new feature … Saturday is Caturday!
Last week I catsit for friends of mine, and these pictures sum up their personalities pretty well.
Here is Mango. She refuses to hang out with me, so about 99% of the time I just see her walking away.
And here is Nigel, who continually tests the edibility of all objects.
And to make sure all of my bases are covered, Mayor Charles and I had a nice cuddle session this week:
Ronnie declined to participate in any social interactions due to his perpetual grumpiness.
ETA: Mayor Charles, my model, helping me test out a fancy DSLR camera at home. He’s quite fetching.
ETA2: Ronnie creeps by, then runs off without any contact whatsoever:
Another weekend of catsitting for friends. In this edition, the kitties circle around me, judging me, as I have yet to feed them.
Just look at Nigel’s face. “Bitch please, what are you waiting for. Give me food.”
I’m not the biggest cat lady in the world (that may be a lie) but I do love clever cat accessories. The winner right now is this vintage-inspired wall clock:
The eyes move at every tick of the second hand, it has a great retro style, and I love the brassy pine cone accents. And the bow tie. Bow ties are cool!
But in terms of accessories you can make … this hand knit mat has been in my Ravelry queue for quite a bit now:
And I think because this cat is like a smaller version of Charles I totally envision him wearing something like this!
Catccessories are the best ‘ccessories.
My life is finally settling down after moving at the end of June. I stretched out my move a week to make the transition a bit easier. Going back that last day really sucked for a myriad of reasons, most of it involving cleaning and breaking cars. But I did manage to eat a vegan pizza on Vegan Pizza Day and while my apartment still has piles of things everywhere it’s starting to feel like home.
I’ve been working a lot and cat sitting, so the interior is still in shambles. But I went to IKEA today and things are on their way towards awesometown. I’ll do a new apartment walk-through as soon as I get myself organized!
