warning: sad kitty stories...
|scissorina's blog she had a post about her sweet kitty got sick all of a sudden and she found out he had cancer and had to put him down, he got really sick really fast, like egon did. and i started sobbing, as would be expected, even if i hadn't lost such an amazing kitty myself. and it has been years now. years. and i still miss him. i felt so bad for her. there is no way to get over it. and then, you think you should have known that there was something wrong. and that maybe you caused them pain. in my case, before they realized what was wrong with him, he had to have all sorts of horrible things done to him, including draining his lung, and if i had known that he was so so sick and in the end it was just horrible pain...ok. now i am crying again. hard to believe that a mean girl like me is so soft, huh? that kitty's death hurt more than anything i have ever experienced. moving on. i did warn you, though. |
after we got the kitten, or rather, he got us, i had a really hard time accepting him. it was a strange feeling. it has taken a while for me to feel attached to him. i feel like i understand how people or animals can have babies and not want anything to do with them. but he has grown on me. the little bugger.
cute, you say? pavel, who is now going on 2 years old, has had a close friend named socky jojo. socky is...well...a slipper sock that he stole from me. it has a teddy bear face on the front. he liked it so much and was teething at the time, which he has never grown out of, oddly enough, i read that it is due to the lack of a kitty-momma...anyway, i stuffed socky full of yarn and pavel uses him as a friend that he sleeps with, carries around with him and also puts on top of the food dish, fairly often, you know so socky can eat. when he is sleepy, he cries out, looking for him, goes and gets him, and goes to sleep. often, he puts him next jake when he is sleeping. usually if pavel is sleeping, socky is next to him, or in his mouth. what else? i have taught him, or he has taught me to turn on the water for him to drink when he says "waa waa" and other people have heard it. i am not making it up. i swear. he is not affectionate...only with his papa, but he is really cute, bad. and cute. and freakishly smart. i think we will keep him.
craft stuff...firstly, i found this website on juju's site insane? yes. i would totally wear this stuff. it is from the netherlands, so it is extra crazy. woohooo! crafty!
i ordered my superwash sock yarn today, so a couple of you will have some samples coming your way to try out. i will keep you posted. some of the stuff i put up on etsy last night sold out very quickly after, so thanks. you rock!
i had to drop my car off past the mall for my mom to use while she is in town so i met jake out there. for those of you that live out here...rt 30 was backed up almost to town and then up to red lobster and at close to a standstill. why? a 18 wheeler drove up and over a parked car in a dealership. i managed to pull a shady move and cut through to get there. jake was in a great mood after that, in addition to a new guy working with him that is an arsehole. on the way, i got bee buttons for my bee yarn. i hope to finish it and post photos to-morrow. and jacey emailed me a pic of a bee yarn that she just made. it is a bit freaky. while we are not close and don't talk often, we do the same stuff at the same time on a regular basis. and it is really odd. connected by fiber, i guess.
that is all there is to tell. i am trying to make baby hats, but they seem to come out too big. although i have no clue what is too big for an infant, as i do not have one. the new cast on looks gorgeous, though. i made jake check it out and he said it looked really neat. right answer.
the photo is a blend of a pretty moda dea and some alpaca laceweight and i love it. so soft. so springy. come on spring...i am so ready. and it snowed. dammit.
ok. off to work.
