Random thoughts from the last two weeks

-Toffee has settled in really well, even Storm the grumpy cat gets along with her. No mutual bathing yet.

- No one in the house, human or feline, was quite prepared to have a kitten around. She is a little bundle of energy and speands a good chunk of her waking hours, racing around the house, playing with toys (rabbit fur mice are her favorite) and attacking anything that walks by. Thankfully the older cats have all taken it in stride and will even play with her.

- I'm doing more canning this year and it has left me in awe of what Grandma did. She used to can two types of pickles, relish, beans, peas, corn, whole tomatoes, tomato juice, pears, peaches, apricots, and several types of jelly and jam. I can't even imagine doing that much and she did it every year.

- When they say to pack the jars when canning tom atoes, they mean to really pack the jars.

New member of the family

(Please excuse the blurriness, she doesn't stay still for long so it's hard to get a good picture.)

Her name is Toffee, she's around 6 months old, very curious, completely fearless and quite a character. She's been with us about 2 weeks now and so far she's settled in pretty well with the other cats.

I think this means that I'm definitely a crazy cat lady now.
