Those That Purr

YT pointed out to me that my blog is all knit, knit, knit and not enough purr. So, following are a few pictures of the purr-ers.
First is YT. I rescued her from the animal shelter, and she’s at least half singapura, and she has amazing blue eyes, and she adores me, and she sleeps between my husband and me and is so small it doesn’t get in our way.
Did I mention she’s my favorite?

Moving along, notice how YT has plenty of room on the printer? Here is Blue, our classic tabby, on the same printer:

Blue and YT engage in fierce battles over nothing. Blue wins but YT always hides in some out of the way corner where he can’t follow her.

Tupac is my other favorite cat. We got him on December 2, 2002, when he showed up in an ice storm. My son was young enough then to name him Tupac. He’s hard to photograph because the black fur kind of disappears.

Here are YT and Tupac together. They are the only two that are actual Friends. They sleep together, wash each other and play roll ‘n tumble.

Finally, the old girl, Miranda. ‘Randa is over 20 years old and will outlive us all. She’s the alpha cat and indisputable ruler, by virtue of her Fierce Glare. We’re very protective of her because of her advanced years, but she doesn’t really need protection. She’s been my daughter’s cat since she (daughter) was four. (she’s 25 now).

Gee, isn’t this fun! Well . . . it is for me, anyway. I realize that “cute kitty” photos are not of general interest!

That Darned Contest!

I’m supposed to be working, but instead I’ve been goofing off by looking at all the profiles and blogs of the other people in Ravelry’s Warm Ewe Up Winter Yarn Swap. The moderator posted a contest requiring us to answer questions about our fellow-swappers. I’ve got all but one.
I must say, it succeeded in getting me to take time to learn about the other folks who are doing this swap, but it isn’t getting my work done!
