E.U. is not alone

Yes, E.U. is not alone any more. A day or two after I posted the previous entry, I heard squeaky mewing noises, not unlike kittens.

And yes, it was the sound of more kittens. Two more to be exact! Both gray, and I could tell just by looking that at least one of them was a female. She had the typical swirls of a tortoise-shell cross, and so far in our kittens, only the females have that kind of coloration. All the boys are either solids or tabbies.

The other gray kitten, a boy. And their mom is nursing E.U. as well, so now he has a nice, round, butterball shape. Not to mention playmates that are at least a week or two older; I thought their mom hadn't kept them, boy did she fool me! So I kept giving E.U. extra milk for a few days after I found the extra momma cat and Rapunzel and Rumplestiltskin (hey, they appeared like magic, might as well give them fairytale names!).

Then I went beaching. Ocean City, Maryland, with three girlfriends for the weekend. I put plenty of time in for knitting, and have one sock almost complete. Relaxing, good company, no worries but do we want to walk the beach, sit on the beach, watch a chick flick, go out to eat kind of decisions.

And back home, I'm about two thirds of the way through a scarf. Think Christmas gift, think I'm not naming names yet... Pattern is from Victorian Lace Today, yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock solid (teal). No pictures yet.

But I did discover another kitten yet. E.U.'s mom actually stole another kitten that is the sibling of R. and R. Yes, another he, another black kitten, but I can't get near him. Thank you House Kitty for being a weird cat, ignore your own baby, still another cat's baby. I'll never understand that cat.
