Sunday's new name is Harlequin.-************* and, as you can see, she's already working on her keyboard skills. She panicked the heck out of me by pissing nowhere visible for about 24 hours, but that's sorted now, so hurray. Teasel's stalking around with a mortally wounded air but I sang him a song this morning and now he's back to purring, so hopefully a few day's peace will restore him to his usual playful self. Yesterday I was seized by the what-if-she-dies, but this is something I'll have to deal with. Although I grew up around a lot of animals, I've never owned a pet. Harlequin is my first. I react to them more as a farmer; instantly I enter the stockman's struggle against sickness and death. She's helping me get over this by falling off everything in the room at the moment. Good Harlequin. Keep it up.

Harlequin looks very cute.
Also:
I'm passing a quiet morning in the office by reading (very) old weekly strips. They're rather good.
That's all.

Excellent! I've missed TWS. You do have such an elegant way of selecting and encapsulating moments of life.

Nnnnaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Kitten.

I swear domestic cats have developed a new evolutionary strategy. Survival of the cutest!*

*the cuter we are the more likely we are to be fed/fussed/looked after.

No doubt. This one's high up the scale on evolution of the cutest!

poor teasel!
He'll just be glad to get his peaceful hideyholes back, after the builders have gone

Awww!!!! Looks like a tidier version of Thomas as a kitten. I hope she's got a more functional personality ;)

so far she's shown no sign of wanting to have sex with my laundry. Far too busy licking my nose and playing with my dangly earrings.

Awwwwwwwwwww, she is just toooo cute!

I've currently got a cat-share going with my neighbours as one of theirs has decided his second home is with me! (he's on my current blog posting!)
