This is my cat, Rebecca. One of my six cats. She likes to help me in the kitchen. She tests all the meat I prepare. If she licks it right out of the package, I know it will be a good dinner. I then rinse off her little cat germs. She also likes to watch while I clean the litter box and wash the turtles' 10 gallon tank. I bought the two turtles on a street corner in NYC for five bucks each in 2002. They have gotten big. Really big. But Rebecca is a very good cat. She is sweet and small and has two of her offspring living with us, Felix and Midnight. They were the only two in her last litter, and they were born on my lap one Memorial Day weekend. I had taken her in as a stray (from a really nice lady who was taking care of her) to add to our previous three, Simon, Sophie and Kitten, and didn't realize she was pregnant. My son, of course, didn't want to give the two little ones away, since he "loved them, very much". So add the dwarf rabbit I bought July 15, 2001, to make a real zoo in my home.

So here is Rebecca helping me photograph one of the little sweaters I gave away to baby Nicole, who is due in September.

Got to Knit

This is my first attempt at a blog. In the immortal words of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., "and so it goes".
