cat & mouse

Thanksgiving. Traveled across the country to spend it with family, friends, and a Siamese kitten.

I knit him a mousie ...


And he loves it! He's been thundering about the house with it in his mouth, playing with it constantly, biting a hole in it that I've already mended, growling cutely when we try to take it away from him, and mewing when he's lost it under furniture.


My favorite game is to dangle the mousie by the tail and watch him jump and jump at it. He's a first-rate leaper.


And just look at those beautiful blue eyes!!

Spiffy pictures. Reminds me of the other kitty toy you spun then knit from Isis fur...;-)

Lovely photos - especially the third one. It looks like some demented creature with huge hands (it's not obviously a kitten!).
