Well... it doesn't take much more effort to look after two cats than one, we thought. Unlike children.
and this little cute and mad-whiskered kitty needed a home.
and, we fondly thought, it might be nice for Logan to have some cat company when we are out or away...
Well. There have been occurrences.
Near-misses with cups of tea and computers
glasses of wine in peril
and a bucket-of-water-dalek spillage yesterday evening
Also frequent facings-off with Logan, who is grumpily not impressed.
They have been not unlike children.
Ah well, they'll learn. Incidence of growling and hissing is decreasing, I hope the penny will drop and Logan will realise that a bit of chasing could be fun.
Its been a week, and little kitty hasn't stopped purring yet, nor staring wide-eyed with a constantly shocked expression. After drawing up a shortlist of names including Spock, Skaro and - a late favourite here, which almost made it - Emmett, he is now named Lemmy.
So, two posts in two days, whatever next. Yesterday's post was supposed to appear on a different blog - I'm vaguely surprised thats not happened before.
but I hope you don't mind if I also take the opportunity to announce the relaunch of made4aid
raising money for aid, through handmade art and craft - we now have an Etsy shop, you can find it here
You can buy handmade items, all profits to Médicin sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) and World Food Programme USA (and probably Oxfam too, to be confirmed). To buy, you do need to register with Etsy but that is quick and easy to do. I have more items to add to the shop when I get the time.
There are cards for sale there made with some of my photos - and there is a custom option, so if you'd like to order cards made with photos of your choice, let me know - almost any of the photos you see on this blog could be used, plus almost any of those on my flickr account.
We are also hoping for donations of handmade items - there is further info. and guidelines donating items to be sold on the made4aid website.
and there is a new button for made4aid on Etsy - please feel free to take the code (which you can find on on the made4aid blog ) and display the button wherever you can, in fact we'll be delighted if you do.
