I'm Still Here

Hello:) Do you remember me, Sally Smitten-Kitten?
You may have noticed I have been a bit absent from recent posts. There is a reason for that. I love cuddling with my foster mum while the others run around like the crazy kittens that they are. I do play sometimes when she is there, and a lot when she isn't- when I think she can't see me!
My favourite thing is to be cradled like a baby, and have my chest rubbed. It makes me purrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
My foster mum really enjoys cuddle time with me. She remembers how frightened I was when I first came to her house. The first time she reached into the carrier to get me out, I was pressed in the corner hissing. Seeing how far I have come makes her heart happy. She thinks I am one of the sweetest little souls she has known, and says she has a lot of respect for how I have let myself be open to a new life, and to trusting.

I am getting along well with the Oscars. I'm still not keen to get involved in much wrestling, but I don't hiss anymore, and will share toys with them. I really enjoy playing games of football with a ping pong ball with them.

It looks like we're out of the Cyclone Hamish woods. It passed us while still out to sea. We got a bit of rain and a few gusts of wind, but that was all. We don't have a generator, but have access to a barbeque and gas cooker, and battery powered lamps for our safe room. But it looks like that wont be necessary this time!

Also, I wanted to tell you about something that our good friend Loki is doing. Do you remember Fui and Suey's about Loki's Primate's book,
? Well, Loki is conducting a Copylefting experiment with the book. to his post about the experiment. The book has been copylefted into a file of 2MB, and is free to download and distribute. It is being done as a way to get the book out there for people to see.

Now, we said in our last post about the book how much we like it. It has a great story, and fun pictures. We are planning on buying a copy for our little bean friend, who loves kitties. We recommend having a look!

I hope you have enjoyed a weekend of fun and cuddles, too:)
