I’m going to stray from the arranged schedule of books on Wednesday and food on Friday for now. Maybe just for today, even. As much as I’m reading, and mostly enjoying, Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, I’m not exactly in the mood to sit down and write about it. Not now. Not yet. Maybe some day. Maybe not.
What I am going to share, in the meantime ,is a cat video. How very stereotypical internet of me, right? RIGHT!
Just under three weeks ago (three weeks tomorrow, in fact), we found ourselves adopting another cat in a very last minute, hectic sort of fashion. A friend got in touch with me one morning because her grandma wasn’t doing too well and she wondered if there was a chance that I may be interested in taking in her grandma’s cat who, at that point, was now living alone in grandma’s apartment.
I felt awful for the poor cat who was described as super sweet and snuggly. She was two years older than our own, which I knew could cause some friction, but my bleeding heart won out and we brought her in.
Needless to say, three weeks later, she’s wandering around this joint like she owns it and has definitely shown us her softer, more snuggly side. The relationship with Beatrice, however, is tumultuous at best. They can sit quietly together in the same room and they can eat side by side, but once you get them sniffing each other, the gloves come off and it’s play fight time. There is no snuggling for these furry beasts. It’s all pounces, attacks and face slaps. It’s rather entertaining, though, I do keep an eye on them to make sure no one’s getting ready to take out some eyes. Ouch.
So. Here’s a cat video. It’s not the greatest quality. I quickly took it with my iPhone through a camera lens that I’m sure is filthy. This was how they played just after a week of being together. It’s since turned a bit more rough house-y. Silly cats.
I’ve finally edited photos of the holiday craftiness I’ve been working on and completed today. I’ll be posting a fun, little DIY about that soon. Very soon. It’s definitely going to be too late for anyone to make themselves for this year, but hey, there’s always 2012.
I’ve also added some new things to my shop that I’ll most likely feature here, because, hey, why not?
I’m planning a Mad Men-esque Cocktail Party for the 9th of December and I’m sure much of what you’ll see here will be in some way related to that for a while. Lots of goodies. Lots of drinks. Lots of old school style. Aww, yeah.
Oh, and one of these days I will actually start my Minecraft YouTube channel. I just did some test runs and we’ll see if my headset is okay to work with temporarily. Fingers crossed. Maybe. We’ll see.Leave a comment
