The Dude and I came down with some sort of bug overnight, and Lily decided to keep us company while we rested after LB went to bed.  Furry friends forever!  #29of365

Time to see the Vet

Even though Lily is an indoor cat, we still take her to get vaccinated against rabies in case she runs out the door one day.  The first 2 times we took her to see the vet, she was great.  Walked right into the crate.  She didn’t like the ride over, but there was no fight into the carrier.

I booked her in for last Saturday at 10 am, and when I still hear the Dude downstairs at 10:05, I figured something was up.  And lo and behold, Lily was not cooperating.  She was sniffing around the crate, and even let the Dude pick her up, but would splay out her paws when he  tried to put her in.

Alas, he had to re-schedule.  This made him very upset.  More upset at her than I’ve ever seen.   But gradually, he came to forgive her.  After all, who could resist this face for long?

Another bout of checking in on McLovin.  He really is the suckiest lap cat I have ever met.

Poor Lily.  She got so tired playing with her toys, that she decided to lay down to drink her water.

The day after the first Toronto Maple Leafs playoff game in 9 years, and Lily the Cat is totally unconcerned.  That’s just disrespectful.  (They lost Game 1 to the Bruins, by the way).

On a different note, who do you think would win in a cage fight between Carlton the Bear and Blades the Bruin?

Headed downtown to meet up with some friends to knit when I saw this cutie on the streetcar.  I thought it was really cute the way he was propping himself up on the ledge to look out the window.

This is Lily the Cat sniffing the carpet pretending not to be interested in her toy.  Just when you think she’s lost interest and start to put the toy away, she pounces.

So after a beautiful, warm weekend, Lily the Cat is also wondering where the warm weather went, and why snow is falling again.

Pfft...where's spring?!

Lily the Kitten (soon to be Lily the Cat!) decided that she didn’t like the new episode of Top Gear, and went to her bedroom…ie. under the bed.

So when we got Lily the Kitten, we also bought one of those cheap little scratching posts, which she never used.  The Dude thought that he could do one better, and make her a cat tree.  So he set to work a few weeks ago, and I just finished sewing the edges in place.

She seems to like the tree so far, and I think the high perch is something that she really appreciates.  If she ends up really liking it, we may make her another one for the bedroom.

I’ve been participating in some knitting swaps, and received this awesome package to help motivate me into making some toys for Lily.  I think she also appreciates it =)

Here is Lily trying to help me with a knitted square.  Now was that knit, knit, purl?  Or purl, purl, knit?
