Naughty Kitties

| | Comments (2)

Grant and I have two cats, and one of them is very naughty. The problem is, which one is the naughty one and which one is the nice one changes from moment to moment. Usually Nala is the sweet, well-mannered princess and Goldfish is, well, Fish. A little off and a little rambunctious, but a lot loveable.

Earlier this week Fish and I were having a lovely evening in the den, when I wander out to the living room to lock the door and go to bed. I find, much to my horror, that my knitting bag has been attacked and my beautiful yarn, and the projects attached to the yarn, are strewn wildly about the living room. After collecting all my projects and putting them back in the bag I notice that there is a ball missing. Dear Nala had stolen the ball and run off with it to the bed room. I found it almost under the bed.

Now, most of you are thinking, well duh, cats love yarn. But you have to understand, I've been knitting for months and they have never once gotten into the yarn bag. Sure, they'll steal some loose balls from the stash from time to time, but never the little tote bag.

After picking up the mess I go to bed slightly annoyed, but none the worse for wear since all the projects survived unscathed. I wake up the next morning to discover the same scenario, with the same ball of yarn having been carted off to my room.

So, it dawns on me, what Nala wants is that ball of yarn. You see, I had just bought that ball this week to make the fringe on the Monkey Bag (yes, I still seem to delude myself into thinking I will finish that bag). She's pulling out the other yarn to get to this yarn.

In preservation of my yarn, I whipped up a quick Kitty Wonton, thanks to the pattern on Knitty (knit 5x5 square, fold in half and sew up the sides, filling with catnip), using that yarn (since I only need a little for the fringe) and some Homespun I'm trying to finish up. As anyone with cats will attest to, Nala took one look at her toy, sniffed and walked away.

Fish, on the other hand, was a different story. Do you think he likes it?



Nice post. I used to be checking constantly this blog and I'm inspired! Extremely useful information specifically the final section :) I take care of such information much. I was looking for this particular info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.
