The Science of Cats :D
Hello Interwebs. I’ve missed you. I’m at my parents’ for the rest of the month, and I plan to spend the next week doing as little as possible while I recover from the move to a new house in Cambridge. Lately I’ve been hit by Make All The Things fever, so I was happy to be reunited with my craft supplies. The above are the results:
1 and 2) Sewing kit in a jar! Adorable cat not included.
2) Flower vases for the kitchen (probably) + small jars for buttons
3) Pencil holders + seashell jar for the bathroom.
I can’t wait to see how these all look at the new place.
In other news, I’m reading again and actually managing to focus for more than five minutes at a time - yay. Now I just need my writing mojo to come back.
1) Don’t worry, the temptation to buy 5 of these and send them home didn’t last more than 30 seconds.
2) I will, however, be posting this home asap. DON’T JUDGE ME, Internet.
3) Gingerbread porridge :D :D :D
Got the kitteh a bunch of goodbye presents. Hours of fun ensued. I’m going to miss him.
Most of these are pretty awful, but it’s hard to get a decent picture of a cat who won’t sit still for more than 5 seconds :P
Meanwhile, at home, wee kitteh has been busy a) torturing his elders and b) spying on the enemy.
I know I can’t pet every cat in Cambridge, but I plan to give it my best shot. Third one this week and I’m not even trying :D
So my parents have officially adopted the stray little kitten they’d been feeding for the better part of a month. This is the first time they’ll be raising an animal without me being close by to get to know him/her, and while it was bound to happen eventually it’s a bit strange to think about.
a) and b) He’s not kept in a cage, obviously, but they used one to catch him and bring him inside and he took to sleeping in it even though the door was always open.
c) Mini Mi* :D
d) Kitteh smackdown
e) This picture cracks me up way more than it should. My poor long-suffering cat :D
*I suppose this only makes sense if you know that the big black cat’s name is Mi.
PS: Sorry about the bad photo quality; my dad’s camera is in need of upgrading.
There’s been too much overearnest talk and not enough cats on this tumblr lately. So here’s a montage of Studio Ghibli cats.
I’m sorry, I just can’t help but find this the coolest thing ever. It’s a 1908 postcard satirising the Sufragette movement, but from my privileged present-day position I can’t help but read it as, “Votes for women: lolcat approved”. Not what the satirists intended, but I like my reading better :D
Cats just because.
Comfort & joy
It’s good to be home. Happy Holidays, everyone!
A cheerful Tove Jansson and her cheerfully black kitty.
