My new excuse for not knitting enough: August 23, 2010

Hi friends!

Let me introduce you to our new fuzzy baby, Lucy. She is a 2.5 month collection of adorable and sweet and total mayhem all wrapped in black fur and tiny claws.

Yes, some of you may be wondering what possessed me to do something like this again. Let me explain…

After we lost our beloved Foozle a little over a year ago, I honestly didn’t know if I wanted to get another cat. First of all, there’s the grieving. Then when I thought about starting over, the cons included (and sorry to say, there are some cons to having a pet, though I also believe that the pros far outweigh the cons) not being able to take nice long vacations without arranging for a housesitter, potential 5 a.m. breakfast wake-ups (Foozle was an expert at this—she had a variety of techniques from the gentle paw on the nose trick to rattling the blinds. None were appreciated.), and possible damage to that which we just renovated/replaced over the last year. Especially the grasscloth in the living room. Oh yes, and then there is that—ahem—collection of yarn I have.

On the other hand, Bug certainly and finally was old enough to take care of and love a pet. And she really wanted a pal. And honestly, I was kind of lonely, too, during the school year. Even though I was always working and running errands, it was wonderful to have my sweet Foofoo around. And she knew to stay away from the yarn.

But when we saw little Miss Lucy at the Humane Society, it just seemed right.

So here we go again…

By the way, I just wanted to thank all of you who read my ramblings and especially thank those of you who take a moment to comment. It’s so gratifying to know that this blog isn’t just floating around out there, because if nobody cared to read it, I’d certainly spend more time knitting. Anyway, thanks!

    Well, you know that I certainly support feline acquisition! And the more frequently the better. So, ‘nuf said. Lucy is a doll and that … is that. Meow!

    Oh I am so jealous. I miss my Mr. Zachary Crabby Pants so much. But now is not the time to add another animal to the mix.

      Boy, I hear you! But I forgot how nutso a kitten is–I mean, 17 years without kitten behavior…makes me miss my old lady Foozle even more.
      It makes me wonder if there ever is a good time to get a kitten. LOL She is a cutie, though!

    Aw, I’m glad for you — it was bound to happen, and she’s a cutie. Love her name, our doppelganger from the Peanuts. So write on and knit on. There’s definitely time and room (well sometimes!) for both. And always a smile when I see there’s a new post.

      She is a hoot! And a little intense. I keep wondering if I should’ve gotten her bro, too. But then, that might’ve been double trouble! LOL
      And I’m gonna try to write more often…
