book* cover design by gray318 - file under - sigh, I sure wish I designed this

I'm trying to get caught up with a zillion, billion (well maybe 8 or 9) little things ... little things that have been hanging around my must-do list for far too long. All the while being nurse maid & great protector to one small, at times psycho, ginger kitten. Oliver's caught the nasty yet tres common upper respiratory virus from Cyrus & is madly sneezing and can't open one eye for the constant stream of watery tears, Samuel continually gazes at Cyrus, head cocked, asking himself (we're quite sure) Can I EAT that !?! & Winnie snarls her most ferocious mad, monster dog snarl if the C kitten steps within Miss D's 5 foot radial kitten free zone - giving me a near heart attack every single time it happens. Bleet is still plain shocked, appalled & intimidated (of course). Virgil is in hiding, killing stray voles, in the basement & hanging out with Mr. I Rebuild Honda motors in his underground man shop. Sigh ... I'm trying to work & not having an easy time of it.

big, big (slightly put upon) sigh

Our kitten status is officially fostering (oops Rachel just fell off her chair with gales of hysterical laughter) not adopters of Cyrus - we are serious !! foot stamping + furrowing of brows

And am happily (kind of) gearing up for my favourite time - les brand new year.

* just started this book last night ahead of the just released Tom Hanks/Sandra Bullock movie version


  1. Change comes to the furry residents of 29 Black and his name is Cyrus.


  2. fos·ter [faw-ster, fos-ter] verb

    1. to promote the growth or development of; further; encourage: to foster new ideas.
    2. to bring up, raise, or rear, as a foster kitten.
    3. to care for or cherish.

    uncle ;-)

  3. I think a package deal might be in order, one ginger kitten along with a lovely original piece of artwork or perhaps a small home repair to the potential adoptee.

  4. Chaos!!!! Well that's what happens when you have a new baby.

  5. The LA shelter called. They want to know when Cyrus is coming. As S. Black says...kittens are always in demand!

  6. Just found your blog via Elise Blaha's. I think I'll stay awhile :)

    This post captured my eye because I JUST finished this book. Wrote about it here: (don't worry;no spoilers :)
