More Cat Info...

I captured the porch cat last night and took him into the vet this morning. He is negative for FIV/FLV (yay!) and recovering from his neuter operation. The entire staff is in love with him because of his sweet disposition and handsome face. He'll be coming back this afternoon, and then... well, time will tell. ;- )

I Love This Face!

This is my friend, the Mystery Porch Cat. There are two such cats, actually, but this one has become my friend and likes to pose for pictures.

He comes by every evening for supper and purrs. It took several months to win his trust, but now he's willing to sit in my lap and lets me pick him up. I'll be taking him in to the vet's soon, to be neutered, tested for illnesses, etc., and then I'll have to try and win his trust all over again. Cats never get that this is for their good, and I'm pretty sure I would feel the same.

August BJP Finished

August was one of those "interesting" months in which I found myself wishing things were different, or had happened otherwise. I wanted to jump over to an alternate world where life was the way I preferred it to be. So... I built myself a time machine and set out upon the waters of time and space. It's literally a time machine, being made from a pocket watch plate, and I incorporated beads of graduated sizes and added a few rhinestones and a couple of sequins. The interesting thing about the watch plate is that all the intricate details on it's surface are never seen by anyone except the person who made the watch and the person who would have to open the watch to make repairs.
