We're all about Stripes around here today...knitting them happily in Silk Garden for Klaralund, the Cardigan...and READING about them, too!
Carson had a trip to the vet yesterday as part of my contractual agreement in the adoption process. He'll need a bunch of dental work, regular allergy meds, a special diet, and lots of exercise. The vet was thrilled that I knew how to establish the Pack Rules...and when Carson fell asleep in my arms, SNORING loudly during her lecture, she giggled and said Clearly, he's found his home!
Our local animal shelter is overcrowded, full of wonderful adult animals like Carson. He was considered *unadoptable* because he had been returned twice from foster homes after he chewed himself bloody because he didn't have the right meds or diet. Anxious and itchy would make ANYBODY a miserable candidate for a beauty contest!
I know I am probably preaching to the choir here, but please consider joining your local Humane Society, or volunteering to rescue or foster these wonderful companion animals...knit a few critter blankies, you never know what LOVE it might bring....
We're off for walkies,
bye for now!
