As predicted, since I finished the second sleeve of the sweater last night, the missing one reappeared today.

I have photos of yarn gnome guilty of disappearing it.... Not in the act - she was too sneaky and fast, but from another day when I was quick with the camera.

Here she is:

 Where did the sleeve appear?  Well, since it looks like I am moving, I started inventorying and sorting my belongings today. I had pulled some stuff out from under my bed when I spied a huge ball of yarn, a chewed on sleeve, a few random lengths of yarn abandoned under the middle of my queen size bed.  . 

I am past needing it, but its nice to have the mystery solved. The sleeve did not disapparate in the sealed car, it disappeared during the chaos of unloading when somebody dragged it out of my bag and fled.

(My internet vacation was cut short, but for a good reason. More on that later).

Nauseous. You probably don't want to read about this. )
Since I am feeling pitiful I had spaghetti for breakfast.  This means I have now eaten spaghetti three meals in a row.  I really like spaghetti.

Also, Hate. Computers. Hate. SEM. Hate. midnight kitten-gymnastics.

(If I ever do have kids, it looks like I will be a co-sleeping mom. I am apparently willing to do about anything to keep sleeping, including let the kitten gallop across me and invite the dog - who really wants out of my bedroom since the roomie's dogs are in motion - up onto the bed. Having them both up there is extra restful, as I am sure you can imagine)

I just sent a sad email, telling She-Who-Brought-Me-A-Cat that Copper needs another place to live, long-term.  We will keep Copper until they find her a good home, but decided tonight that it isn't fair to add a fifth pet to the household - our resources only stretch so far, and she deserves a home where she is in, say, the top three animals. 

It has been fun having her, and we will joyfully keep her until the right opportunity comes along.  It will be sad to see her go, but it seems like the wiser choice when you look at our lives (RH taking a job next week that is going to keep her out of the house a million hours a week, me moving away in three months, K working full-time four hours away and road-tripping home when he can; each of us already having a pet who could use a little more attention).

This being a grown-up thing is not always that much fun.

Kit-ten update.

Remember how I said I am not keeping her, no, no, no matter what.

Well my roommate suggested that rather than me keeping Copper, we keep her.  That way she will be a community cat and when I go she can keep living with RHeather.

This has potential.

Operation Cat Bath: Succesful.

We used hyper-organic puppy shampoo, and two people.  We knelt outside the tub, with me holding her and the roommate pouring water over the top with a small metal mixing bowl.

She didn't like it, but she took it.  We even stayed (mostly) dry.  The scary realization is that she has been de-clawed.  Good for cat-bathers, bad for cats on the lam.  She has to be a house pet, whatever she does next.

ETA: Okay, she isn't declawed. I talked to She Who Brought Me A Cat and apparently they are just clipped very, very short, since they were in bad shape when she was found.

The question for you cat-owners is: cats and baths.  I have heard these dont go together, but this kitten could maybe use one.  She grooms, but she also came out of a dumpster not long ago and is a little bit ...fragrant.  Can I take her into the shower with me like I would a puppy? Should I wash her in the sink? Should I give up the idea totally?
