Completely content without one this one came looking for us.
This shadow weighing about 2 ounces, a couple of months old and perfectly drawn tiger stripes
decided to follow us home.
Noticeably hungry and cold we took in this stray tabby.
I wasn't buying his whole "cute, look at me purr, look how I look for your hand to pet me" act..
I was ready to take him to his rightful owner...
"just look at him... he has to belong to someone else"... i said to myself
All the while the captain named him "monkey" and spoke to him like one of kids already.
The king was on day two from recovering from the flu was getting better right before my eyes with "monkey" working his magic on him.
No way I can give him up now
Then the princess came home ... and it was like in the cartoons when little tiny hearts circle their heads
She was in love. This is what I heard her say:
" I love him so much because he is so real.. I want him to wake up...he is playing sleeping beauty with me...make pee-pee here Monkey..he needs a blanket.. his whiskers tickle me momma...I am going to take a nap with him"
Then she said... I want to name him Moonlight because its pretty and Walter because its a boys name.
Did she know its was a full moon last night? I thought
(Walter is a boys name in her class)
I joked with Nina earlier if we could swap cats...she often refers to her feline as "my stupid cat Rufus"...I love that darn cat and his stupid ways.
The captain suggested having a blog giveaway for the cat ... not a bad idea I thought
Well after all the phone calls and comments and advice from friends and family...
he has his first doctor's visit tomorrow.
Meanwhile the king was working on origami...
thanks to these books he just finished reading ...Yoda...Darth Paper and Fortune Wookie
|its amazing what you can learn from YouTube|
So this is what he came up with
The video was 30 minutes but took us over an hour.
I did the first half and he proudly finished it off.
We used copy paper and crayons. Yoda don't worry, with origami paper we will rock this!
So we will be making more of the Star Wars characters...yes there is an origami pattern for all of them.
Earlier this week he read this book and loved it. (warning : you will cry at the end of the book like the first time you saw ET)
Me? I will be working on some creative projects till christmas..
Any ideas how to keep Moonlight Walter Monkey out of my yarn?
