Are Sasha and Sergei watching and waiting for a friend to play with? No, they’re eyeing the robin holding forth on the electrical line outside my office window. He sits on the wire, only a few feet from the house, and talks to the other neighborhood birds. Sasha and Sergei watch, and chatter, and twitch.
This weekend, I doubt the McKittens will spend much time staring out this or any other window. Finally (over a month later than originally planned), we and some of our friends will be demolishing our kitchen to prepare for remodeling. Our cats do not like noise, or people they don’t know well, so I expect they’ll spend most of Saturday and Sunday under our bed. I’m sure they’ll be too stressed to pay much attention to the Carnival of the Cats, which will be at Music and Cats on Sunday.
Music and Cats?!? That’s here! Did I mention that I’ll be tearing out counters and cabinets and sinks (oh, my!) this weekend? And flooring and plaster and lath, too? So folks, lower your expectations. You want little pics of your cat(s) in the Carnival? That’s so 2nd Anniversary. It’s going to be a stripped-to-the-studs, no-fancy-finishes Carnival this weekend. And please, please, please use the Carnival Submission Form to submit your post (or send an email, nicely formatted, with working html links).
Sergei and Sasha have heard that Steve allows birds on board the Friday Ark; they are so there. Then they’ll be off to eatstuff, home of Weekend Cat Blogging, to see whether Kiri and the other cat/food bloggers have any serving suggestions for robin.
