Haven't updated in a while, due to busy-ness and head-fogginess, and one other rather important reason...

Yes, we've added to the menagerie. :D Let me introduce you to Hazel, the lovely orange tabby (girl, 6 months old, former stray adopted from the city Animal Services), and Fiver, the crazy-cuddly black cat (boy, 9 weeks, unwanted kitten adopted from veterinary clinic). Fiver looks enormous because he was closer to the camera, but really he's only about 1/3 Hazel's size. Don't ask me if they mind being named after rabbits--we'll just have to keep them out of the room the next time we watch Watership Down. ;)

I've been missing having furry purry creatures around. As much as I love the ferrets, I have to admit they're not the most affectionate of fuzzies.

Naturally, I had to re-read Watership Down as soon as we named Fiver (who got here first). I've out-grown a lot of fantasy since the 8th grade, when I first read it, but it's still a damn good, and gripping, book. Now am reading the current draft of deva_fagan's Obsidian Shield and scribbling lots of hopefully helpful and encouraging comments in the margins.

More news when there is news to be shared.

So cute! Fiver reminds me of when Runty was a kitten :P

How cute! I love hearing about other people's cats, since I am cursed with allergies and unable to have my own. Great names too - Fiver really looks like I might imagine, with those big startled eyes.

Thanks for reading OS - I am sure your comments will be helpful! I'm finally back online as of today, and will email you that address shortly.

Fiver is cute beyond words! Not that I don't appreciate Hazel, but they're cutest when they're tiny. :-)
