FInally, Absorba the Great!

I've wanted to make one of these since the (first) MDK book was published.  Love it, and it IS fun to knit.  It has so much texture, but is still "soft".  :) :) :)

His Highness


His Highness, originally uploaded by KathyinDC.
The other cat, D├Ęca, will eat the sour cream from a bowl, a person feeding her with their finger, or off the counter or floor.

Mr. Spoiled Rotten just refuses to feed himself sour cream. And, since I am the one who did such a good job spoiling him, I go in and hand feed him the sour cream.

How do you like that? (Interrupts my knitting!!!!!)

Fancy Lion Cut Truffie


Fancy Lion Cut Truffie, originally uploaded by KathyinDC.

He is STOMPING around (angry cuz we've been out of town and he had to go to the vet for boarding--SO humiliating to a cat), following me everywhere I go, "Protecting me" from everyone!!! He stands guard outside the bathroom when I shower, he plants himself like a sentry outside the door when I sleep (or get dressed or blog), he sits on the counter watching me, purring LOUDly, when I do anything--he is a total freak for mommy, this guy. (I wouldn't want it any other way), lol.

Like his new Lion Cut?
Well, he Will NOT tolerate brushing and combing. I can get away with it a little, but not well enough to keep his coat healthy and free of matting. So, for this reason, the little tyrant has to be SEDATED and get a sedated shave at the cat hospital twice a year. Otherwise he ends up a matted and miserable mess. THE most expensive haircut known to man or beast , this one. He usually comes back looking "strange" because, as they will tell you at the vet, "This is not the groomer--we use medical clippers and you get what you get." This time, he came back just beautiful. And. He doesn't even know it.

I am gonna' take hundreds of photos! (poor Truffie). And the girls and I have not stopped Squealing every time he comes in the room. He is so cute.

Blizzard

Ok.  Enough already. 6 to 12 more inches on top of the 34 inches we already have from the weekend,  enough already.  Here is how it looked before more snow.  We are thankful to have electricity, (internet), coffee and hot tea!,  heat and some food in the house.  I know some folks don't have all that.  It's a two sweater day.

Think Snow



We did and it did. Shameful I know, not posting sooner. Been busy. Moved too many times in the past 4 years. Hope we can stay put now for awhile.

Hope it is nice where you are!
