Middle-of-August update (including KITTEH)

So, in good and bad news…Spock has gone to a new home! He’s with a local friend who was thinking of getting a cat anyway, and came over twice for playdates….he’s smitten, and it’s adorable.

We did go over Friday to help Spock settle in – of course the kitten didn’t give a single f***, because THERE WERE WIRES TO CHEW. And a Playstation to hide behind. And a sofa to climb. He was loving the new playground! So he’s settling in happily and I might have to go over occasionally to cat-sit, oh noes. I can’t really complain as I did have every evening and morning with him for a week, so I have had a lot of cute kitten time.

Frankie is exceedingly happy that the small squeaky thing has vacated his territory, and that his sleep can be undisturbed. He’s spent every morning since on my lap, which is adorable but mildly unhelpful. That said, it’s not as unhelpful as a kitten who keeps opening multiple tabs and searching for zzzzzzxcdsfsaa by walking across my keyboard, so I’ll take the larger fluff any day!

In other news, I’m off to Amsterdam for a week on Tuesday, visiting my sister and just generally chilling. I’m hoping to get some writing time as well, and I’ll try to do a couple of blog posts – but if you don’t hear from me, it’s because I’m strolling along a canal and staring at artwork (or more likely, eating pizza and reading).

Have a good and fluffy week, everyone!
