Cheeky Kittens

Have you seen this kitty?

LOST: August 7th, 2009, Half Moon Bay CA
4 months old, spayed, loving, ID chipped

My DD got a new kitten a few weeks ago, mostly to be a mouser and an outdoor cat since I am allergic to cats. She flew off to Costa Rica (back tonight), leaving the kitten here with us. The kitten can't go outside since she was spayed two weeks ago. DD named her Chiquita. but I'm calling her Cheeky, and she has lived up to her name. Over the weekend, Cheeky was transitioned from DD's bedroom to the garage. She slept in the garage at night and spent the day inside the house, exploring and playing with her toys and ours. She really likes the computer. Note to self: don't wear shorts with a kitty around. I was very careful to wash my hands after touching her and managed to keep the allergies at bay. Today was her first day in the garage during the day. I let her in when I came home at 3: 30 and she seemed fine, but she promptly did a number on DD's bed (misplaced anger?). The quilt is now in the washing machine and Cheeky is in the garage/aka doghouse.

She also managed to hit some hot key on my new computer and started downloading all of my saved emails, which I had been keeping on the ISP's site.

Even though Cheeky loved to bat the moving yarn, so I had to put away the knitting when she was around, I was able to finish my socks for the Sock Museum, as well as a matching mini sock for my sock blocker keychain. This is the Mermaid Sock design by Lucy Neatby, from Cool Socks, Warm Feet. The Sock Summit is only a month away, and I'm getting excited.
