And I thought, for a moment, that Momma was going to be on her way to the vet's today. She went into the trap, ate ALL the sardines I put in there (they are supposed to be irresistible) and walked away. I couldn't believe my eyes. The trap slams shut if I breath near it, and she devoured a plate of fish, and it didn't move.
Then I looked out on the porch, and she had a friend over. A white and gray cat that I've never seen before.
After lunch, she decided to take a little snooze. Looks comfy, doesn't she? This table is a mere 6 ft from my back door, but if I open the door, she will be off the porch in an instant.
Here they are, I'd like to call them Lucy and Ricky, but of course I don't know if they are girls, boys, or one of each. I hate to keep them confined, but it is the only way to socialize them, in a crate. Otherwise, they just hide under the bed 24/7.
This isn't my first rodeo.
Anyway, I did get some stuff done today. I uncovered this lovely tapestry loom, and put it on Craig's List. I will never get to it, and I don't need it. Cheap enough at $100, I am in the mood to make room.
I had a mini breakdown today, feeling overwhelmed with work to be done, the mess in the studio, cats not being cooperative, not enough time to spend on the kittens, phone ringing.
So I went outside for a while, and took my camera.
The trees are changing, and the Jerusalem artichokes along the property line are about 12ft tall.
Actually it has nothing to do with Jerusalem, and it is not an artichoke, but a member of the daisy family.
It is also called a sunchoke, or a sunroot.
And it is quite lovely.
I really need a new perspective. I need a day off.
I need a foster family for these kittens. If I can get them socialized a bit, I can maybe find homes for them.
Tomorrow's gonna be a better day.
