I was on my way from the bathroom downstairs to the bathroom upstairs with some rolls of toilet paper when I realised the visitors to the mosque on the corner were coming out, so I immediately put down the toilet paper and stepped outside to remonstrate with the person who was parked across my driveway.

This took less than four minutes.

Some kittens are clearly not bothered by anything.

I’d like to know how on earth this is comfortable.

All the news that’s fit to print

There hasn’t been that much news around here lately.  Teddy is here, and being cute, and Huffle is still not impressed.  I’m off to the vet today to buy a Feliway diffuser, surely that will help.  I’ve had most of this week off work, which is lovely.  Last night I went to the Australian Open and saw a couple of great matches.  Kim Clijsters demolished Dinara Safina in a very short amount of time, then Lleyton Hewitt and David Nalbandian played an epic match that lasted nearly five hours.  It’s just a shame Lleyton lost.

The boy and I are house hunting this year.  We need more room so we have to move.  We’ve already been to see a couple of houses and neither was quite right.  But we plan to buy a new place some time very soon!  I’m not looking forward to the actual move but it will be so nice to have a bit more room.  Our kitchen is too small, my computer sits on the dining table because there isn’t enough room for a second desk, the boy wants a room where he can build train layouts… it’s all good.

Meanwhile, since I really don’t have anything terribly exciting to tell you, here’s another photo of little Teddy to make you go AWWWWWWW. I know it’s a bit blurry, but I think it’s adorable.

Interwebs, meet Teddy

Three days ago, I found a kitten in our front yard.  It looked sad and lost and hungry.  It spent that night curled up in Huffle’s carrier, with a nice warm towel and some food (still outside).  Yesterday, the kitten was still there.  And it was putting its front paws up on the glass in our front door to see it, and crying.  It spent last night in our bathroom, with some toys and more food and water and towels.  This morning, the kitten had its first visit to the vet, has been vaccinated and de-wormed and de-flead, and is back in the bathroom waiting to meet Huffle Mawson.

Teddy 03Welcome to the family Teddy.

I actually called the RSPCA yesterday because I did NOT want another cat.  They told me that the kitten would probably end up at the same shelter Huffle came from.  But after discussing it at length last night, we agreed that we can certainly afford to give a kitten a home, so we decided to keep him.  Huffle is either a) oblivious or b) ignoring him.  I hope they get along.
