Our lives have been taken over by two adorable fuzzballs. This is a knitting blog, but there has been very little knitting this past week. That's partly due to my new job and the efforts of getting used to a set of new tasks, but the other part has to do with two energetic felines.
See? Merlin, with the bookshelf. In an attempt to get at his sister, he has thrown out Foucault and The Making of the English Working Class. His sister is hidden behind the books, contentedly chomping on Orientalism. They are orphan kitties who were weaned too early, and they have an oral fixation that would have delighted Freud. Everything needs to get gnawed, but for some reason, they particularly like to gnaw on books. Oy vey!
Merlin also enjoys chasing the gray snake that follows him around wherever he goes. Occasionally, he'll go after the black snake, which he likes even better. When you bite down on the black snake, it doesn't hurt. Now, if he could only figure out why it ticks off his sister!
And speaking of little sister, Morgana is a real nerd. She loves toys, she loves to chew on cables and the wireless router, and she has discovered computers. Mr. Batty is trying to play Civ, but she has her little nose almost glued to the monitor. There are things moving around, but when you try to grab them, they're not really there. Is that weird or what?
And, finally, the reason for the lack of knitting content. My comfy chair has been usurped.
So, now you know what's going on at our house. There will be knitting in my next post, I promise. I also promise to catch up with everybody's blogging activity over the weekend. Working full-time and learning to be a new kitty parent sure cuts into a person's free time!
