These Boots Were Made For Scratching
by admin - 20:48 on 12 September 2012
Matchgirl encountered the down side of kitten-keeping yesterday when Pandora and Willow were allowed out of The Kittenry to explore the upstairs landing and our bedroom and make eye contact with Maia through the temporary gate at the top of the stairs.
The frolicsome mini-felines emerged cautiously but were soon busy leaping around our bedroom and even braved the dust under the bed. Maia watched what she could until she became bored and descended the stairs to continue her ceaseless quest for food.
Matchgirl's moment of horror occurred when Pandora left the bedroom and discovered the footwear collection displayed outside it. One pair of high-class boots seemed just the thing for sharpening little claws. Oops.
Not much kitten snappery has taken place in the last two days because I've been full of cold. I blame the Cromarty Primary pupils who swarmed around the market last Saturday. So the only new snap I can offer is a high-ISO study of sleeping kitties. Aaahhh.
Book Update: Today was a red letter day – I received the first repeat order for Tess's book, from The Emporium. Let's hope other outlets follow soon. There's also news regarding The Bumper Book of Black Isle Snappery, which has a new outlet: Gardiner & Gardiner Antiques in Cromarty, owned by Helen Gardiner, a guest expert on TV show Real Deal. With luck she'd recognise the perfect Christmas gift for her famous friends.
