Cats Squared

      No Comments on Cats Squared

Okay, I had to cheat slightly to get all four of them on the bed. Vivi was napping on the table behind me, so I scooped him up and deposited him upstairs. I caught him at the right time, ’cause he gave me a flat look, curled up, and stayed very put. Only other thing of vague excitement is taking… Read more »

Brother Pillow

So uh, three of four cats are on the couch, and Raven appears to be serving as a pillow to a degree. Considering how clingy Raven has been today, I’m especially pleased to see him curled up with the babies. Not that he’s taken any issue with them, but I felt like maybe he was a little stressed out. He’s… Read more »

Cuddle Puddle

I’d gone upstairs to check on the big boys earlier, and caught them like this. So cute! I mean, it’s always mile a minute kitty cuteness around here, which means I’m absolutely living my best life. Past that, just trying to keep hydrated and being glad that I see the ENT folx week after next. I need some answers for… Read more »

No Problems

The integration continues in a lovely fashion. The closest thing to a problem is that Raven is suddenly finding that he needs some alone time. Which he’s getting; either he’s hiding in my sock drawer (which is actually verboten, but I’m permitting for the mo), or just the entire upstairs bed by himself. The other three are currently downstairs. October… Read more »

So. Four cats sleeping in my bedroom. Awesome! Less awesome is Raven’s repeat insistence on napping in my sock drawer. I mean, yes, it’s cute and probably smells like me, but him and his brother are yarn/sock thieves, so this insistence of his annoys me. I chucked him out of the drawer once and pushed it as far closed as… Read more »

Too Sweet

The babies are settling in well. Raven still isn’t interacting with them much, while Vivi seems to think he’s a harried babysitter. Which… more or less what we guessed would be the case initially. The little ones themselves are happy to demand pets, and to wander around, but they’re not too keen on being picked up yet. That’s fine —… Read more »

Our new babies are home! We’ve had some amusing encounters, but nothing hostile. Raven had spotted Halo (the boy) and gone for a nice sniff greet. October wandered over, curious, which sent Raven jumping backwards with a ‘There’s two of you?!’ vibe. Vivi has been mildly hissy, but mainly just sort of keeping an eye on them. Last check, they… Read more »

Well, I Never

Today’s picture comes from Z’s camera roll. I mean, how can I not use this? So cute, so… outraged? Gooberesque? Pure cat. Speaking of cats, turns out we’re going to be picking up the kittens after all. Which, fine, just have to make sure to not do anything in the moving vehicle whatsoever. -__- I used to be able to… Read more »

Shifting Shizz

I’ve been doing some further tidying and reorganisation in my general habitation. I’m mainly happy with it, though there’s still a few bits I need to find new homes for. And then we still have the other half of the lounge to poke at. The whole tidying of the downstairs *is* coming along. Past that, usual weekend stuff. Gaming, a… Read more »

Just a Design Choice

      No Comments on Just a Design Choice

First sock is complete! The mistake… err… design choice is that I accidentally pulled out the needles during the toe bind-off, and ended up with a random-ass loop I couldn’t shift. So I tucked it inside the sock, pinned it down across the toe, and bob’s your uncle (unless he isn’t. obviously). All my little bits in the right size… Read more »
