I am currently nursing a bad case of heartbreak because we have just discovered four tiny feral kittens living in our yard and in the yard of one of our neighbours. Here is a video that I made of them yesterday. This morning I went to feed them and the calico kitten let me pick her up and pet her (the others are very skittish). I am now desperate to bring her home, but when I stopped by the vet this morning for an estimate on FIV/leukemia testing, de-worming, first vaccines, etc., it was $300. For one kitten! I took Oreo in for an emergency visit and medication on the weekend and flattened my bank account to do so. It's ripping me up! I could cry just thinking about those sweet kittens who got caught in the rain yesterday. I don't know if I'll be able to catch the calico again. I want to, though. So, just saying, if you were interested in a print from the Summer Water shop, this could be a good time to snap one up.
I seem to have an unending supply of cat-related items to post.
This shirt from ASOS arrived last week. I purchased it when it went on clearance and I really love it. It's slouchy, all cotton, and it gets me compliments from older ladies. It's also available through the ASOS Curve range.
I truly don't mind having a "crazy cat lady" reputation because sometimes it means that I get cat-gifts sent to me in the mail from fellow cat-loving spirits. Chad of Mon Petit Fantome sent me this beeeeauuutiful jointed papercut recently. It is so, so sweet. Look at the eyelashes!
I finally finished this kitten embroidery. It was meant as a trade with April for some pretty things she sent me in the mail last spring. It is so embarrassing to me how long it's taken!
A few other things:
my post about Melinda's house was mentioned on the Herman Miller blog, which is pretty cool
dreamcats was mentioned in the Frankie magazine email newsletter (I've always thought that dreamcats & Frankie were kindred)
this post on the Little Paper Planes blog is utterly lovely, and includes Caitlyn's sequins on a string
Thank you all for your sweet comments on Caitlyn's home! I think it's really wonderful that people responded to things such as her red chairs (hand-me-downs) and her sequins on a string. I hope to have more homes soon!
G.: After I saw your comment I took a look -- wow!
