My Squillion Has Arrived


My kitten Squillion from Beau's auction arrived today.  Isn't he cute?  His tummy looks very floofy, so I named him Eric, after two very floofy ginger cats in England.  Thank you, Beau.

I guess I should tell you what's been going on here and why I haven't been posting much lately.  I am on vacation, but I came down with a cold that just won't go away.  The headache that came with the cold lately makes it hard to write limericks.  I am doing my research and get some ideas, but the limericks just aren't coming very easily at all.  I hope to have some more limericks ready soon, but I really can't tell how things will go.  I am not very sick, nothing to worry about, but it's enough to interfere with the creative process.  I am thinking seriously about calling my doctor on Monday to see if I can get in to see if I have a sinus infection or something that is making this dratted cold hold on for so long.

Eric is a cutie pie!

We're very sorry to hear you have a nasty, lingering cold. Perhaps it is a sinus infection since you have a horrid headache. Better see your doc.

We got our Squillion today too (we're gonna post about him tomorrow)! Eric is a great name for him!

We're sorry that your sick, but it's more important to get better than write limerick (though we always look forward to them!). Get well soon!

Purrs,

I hope you go to the doctor tomorrow and get rid of that cold. perhaps something to loosen the congestion, like guaifenesin and a huge pot of tea.

Your squillion is very cute. He looks just like an Eric. As for the cold, the cold that is running around up here is lasting for weeks and won't go away. Or if you think it is oging away, it comes back.
Mom says please rest, get plenty of fluids, and if you need Lucky, just let me know, I will send her over to you. She's been a little too perfectly cute lately.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

We really hope you feel better Karen Jo. We know it's difficult to concentrate and be creative, even when you're not feeling bad. Hey! Maybe we should write you a limerick? Nah. It would stink! Seriously stink.
