Since you suffered through my nearly 1700 word diatribe, I figured you'd bear with me for a couple of completely non-library related images.
Over Christmas, Gypsy got to watch "Cat TV" at the Incredibly-Patient-Mother's house. There were a ton of birds hanging out in the backyard and three very healthy and acrobatic squirrels. I'm told this is the "skinny" one. Squirrel sandwich anyone?
On the way home she met AudioGirl's Dinah. They spent the night hissing at each other.
But Gypsy has settled in nicely since we got home (she was happy to be back here). She found which chair gets the most sunlight for her battery recharging naps.
She's located a wonderful supply of "celery" (that's what it sounds like she's eating).
She's figured out if she gets in between me and the monitor that I HAVE to pay attention to her. (Yes, my desk is a disaster)
And she continues to be stunningly beautiful.
I'm having "Cat Warming" tomorrow night so she can meet some of my LPL coworkers. And I've arranged for the RefQueen's daughter to cat sit for my next long trip.
