I’m going to be in New York from Wednesday 4/11 through Sunday 4/15. This is not a work trip — it’s the first actual non-family-gathering vacation that Ingrid and I have taken in I don’t know how long — and while I’ll be looking in on comments to make sure that they’re not blowing up, I may not be doing much actual blogging when I’m gone.
So in the meantime, here are some cute kitten pictures!
Comet’s favorite new toy is the magnetic alphabet letters we use to spell things on the fridge. She’s gotten very adept at leaping up at the side of the fridge to knock them down, so we’ve been keeping them up high where she couldn’t get at them. We thought.
The other evening, we found her prowling about with a letter E in her mouth. We put it back… only to find her playing with it again the next day. We couldn’t figure out how she’d gotten it, since the letters were all up high. Was the magnet weak? Were we knocking it over ourselves?
Comet can now get to the top of the fridge.
Also please note that the fridge magnet letters used to spell out “Comet Talisker Houdini.” Until Comet made a hash of her own name. Not sure what to make of that.
I especially love this one. She’s on top of the freaking fridge… and she’s looking up, trying to find someplace even higher to go. Alexander, looking for new worlds to conquer.
Here she is, caught in the act.
And the next morning, this was on the fridge:
We are so doomed.
