My blogging has been a bit sparse lately, mostly due to ongoing computer issues with the new machine (we should be fixed soon, as about the only thing left to replace is the motherboard...). I have begged and borrowed computer usage, currently doing the latter (Lynn to the rescue again *-). Truth to tell, there has also been another distraction in our household. Meet Polly, the newest addition to our family.I arrived back from a weekend out of town in May to find a food dish and litter box...and a huge grin on my youngest son's face. The kitten followed him home late one night as he was walking from a friend's. She was in the middle of the street when he first saw her, shivering, scared, and crying - imagine this little baby out in the dark alone. We've had her a month now and she's grown considerably, both in physical size and in our hearts. We canvassed the neighbourhood and ran ads on the radio but no one claimed the kitten, so...she's ours. Youngest named her Polly as she has the annoying habit of climbing up your back (with needle sharp claws)to sit on your shoulder, like a parrot. We're working to break her of that. Polly is full of kitten silliness and energy and runs and tears until she drops. She is very happy in her new home.She has a keen interest in quilting so I know she will be a valuable addition to the sewing room.
