Here is Deiter happily laying on Mom's rug. He doesn't realize that within minutes he will be on his way to the vet's. He's had some mild 'intestinal issues' lately and is due for vaccinations. Usually the big guy is very calm and laid back.
He doesn't seem to have a hairball. Maybe changes in his life (like having two new little sisters???) or the fact that we changed from all dry cat food to feeding canned twice a day.
Anyhow he's now on an antibiotic just in case. And they did not want to give him the vaccinations until this issue was resolved. So...back to the vet again in two weeks. More stress.
The little guys are growing fast! At about four months old cats get their permanent teeth. Penny already has hers. I looked one day a week ago and they were suddenly there. This is a picture of Izzy's upper fang last week.
This week the new tooth is coming in. The amazing thing about cats is that they are never without their fangs. Unlike humans, whose teeth fall out and then new ones grow in, cats new fangs grow in front of the baby ones. A very logical biological necessity since those teeth are their defense and means of attaining their food.
The beautiful Isabell! Penny was too busy climbing the walls and jumping on furniture to sit still for a picture. Miss Izzy loves photo shoots.
Progress is being made on my logo rug. This was the idea that I started out with for the border. I measured out large tongues, hooked one and didn't like it. Then I made small tongues, planning to use a light background. Didn't like that idea either. The small tongues seemed to fussy and delicate for the large chunky heart and hand. This is beginning to make me cranky!!!
After lying in bed and thinking (and giving myself a headache!) I decided to just do straight hit or miss rows for the border. Then I got a bright idea for doing the corners. And here it is.
I think I can live with this. I told you it could all change in a minute!
I've been working on this all evening. I will have to dye more wool for the background. I know I'll run out! But I like the dark background so much better than the light.
In my spare time today I made some awesome Thai-style spring rolls. The next time I make them I will take pictures and give the recipe. Zip said they were better than the ones we get at the Chinese restaurant.
