We're Keeping the Cat!*

(Click pic for bigger image)

This summer we've been befriending this cat, whom we've dubbed Guy Noir. He has half a tail, a tough-guy swagger, and a heart of gold. On Monday we got him to the vet and had him neutered and since then, he's showing all signs of being a great pet. He's still pretty jittery and rarely relaxes completely. But he's getting there. He prefers to spend his nights outside still, but I expect that to change in the fall when it starts to get chilly at night.

In other news, I've been working on getting Knitcircus #7 ready for the printers between battles on the domestic front. It's all coming together nicely!

Don't forget, Alt Knitting Camp happens August 2-4, at Devil's Lake State Park, campsite #110. We still have room for 6 more overnight campers, and day visitors are welcome, especially if they bring some goodies to share with the pack! Just email me at elizabethmorriso (at) gmail (dot) com.

*The Ravelry Rubberneckers will understand what this means.

Love your cat - he looks quite a bit like our Blackie (shared with one of my daughters). I love tomcats, neutered or no.

Mmm...I have a soft spot for black katzes!

I had a cat like that for awhile. He was mostly white with a few black markings and tough as nails/soft as butter. Unfortunately, when I moved he would not come along. Alt. Knitting Camp. Yippee!

Once upon a time we had a big black cat named Sophie. She swaggered around, kinda like Sophie Tucker, and basically ruled our roost. She might have made a good companion for Guy Noir (great name!), but alas, she's gone to the Great Kitty-Beyond.
