New Pathways

Yesterday I made good use of my current schedule-less schedule to head into Toronto for Cat Bordhi’s class at Lettuce Knit. She is slotted to teach at the Sock Summit and her full-day ‘New Pathways’ class based on her sock architectures book is one of the ones I was anxious to take. So, when Lettuce […]

Change of pace

The last few days have been pretty slow around these parts, involving a fair amount of knitting, sitting, DVDs (X-Files renaissance ahoy), and the occasional excursion into the outside world for provisions or moderate socialization. Now that the term is ending I can actually have a proper few days of leisurely sloth, before returning to […]

These cats have good taste

Ramona has HER winter sweater all picked out. (Beatrice has been evicted from the sweater spot.) It’s a good thing I have others. I also have some presents that need to be knitted bought wrapped, so I should probably get on that tomorrow. Happy last-minute prep!

Now (temporarily) with 300% more cat

What with the holiday season and all, I am back for a stint with my former roomie from last winter, Miss Beatrice the kitty, while her regular humans are travelling. Luckily it’s not far from my own homestead, so I can have the kitty time as well as all regular Christmas to-doing. Of course, since […]

Change of Scenery

I’ve relocated for most of this week chez Ladylungdoc, who is letting me mind her kitties while she and her husband are away. It’s a pretty good deal; the kitties get food and meds, and I get to be a Torontonian again for a few days. After living back in Hamilton for almost a year […]

Keeping it Simple

Back when I was Miss Beatrice‘s roomie for several months, I did a bit of kitty knitting. After a bit of practice I discovered that any bit of snugly knit stockinette wool, folded over and stuffed with yarn scraps and catnip, pretty much did the trick. And then there is also that Log Cabin Blanket […]

Better with catnip

It’s a sad, sad truth that this blog has been greatly lacking in cat content lately, ever since I moved out of Miss Beatrice’s place when her regular humans returned at the beginning of March. Sure, I’ve visited her (and her humans), but it’s just not quite the same. Well, Beatrice’s world got rocked a […]

They have a plan

I’m so heartened to hear that some of you miss reading about Beatrice the Cat. I admit that while it’s sort of nice not to have a fuzzy alarm clock pouncing on me at 6:30am every day, I do miss the fuzzy cuddles. She was clearly taking her notes from this cat, though. Silly cat […]

Kitty kompanion

Dear Beatrice (also occasionally known as Beez or Miss Beatrice, or ‘snookums’, or sometimes ‘cutesy-woo’) Thanks for being such an awesome kitty and purr-iffic roomie the last six months. In a few days your regular humans will return and I shall leave you and your house and you’ll eventually remember that they are your regular […]


Lisa was ever so kind to tag me on a ‘Seven Things About You’ Meme, and by the laws of the internet, I must obey! However, I am breaking the rule about tagging specific people. Consider yourself tagged! Hah! Yes, you over there in the corner, that includes you. Your Seven Random Things, I must […]
