We're still babysitting our Grandkitty Monty......

We've had him since June 17 as my DS left for a weeks holiday in Vancouver visiting our DD. Well his one week holiday is looking like it's going to be more like three weeks. He's had the unfortunate luck of breaking his right leg just above the ankle.The Tibia and Fibula both broke, as well as ligaments and tendons tore. This above picture was after trying to set it twice, and then surgery to implant a pin, plate, and half dozen screws. Tomorrow afternoon he'll have day surgery to remove a couple screws, and then hopefully get the okay from the doctor to fly home.

So in the meantime Monty (who's all of five months old) has been a rascal, which leads to getting some timeouts in his room. The thing is he's just so darn cute, and I had to post this latest video of his obsession with anything paper.....

So there in lies the reason why we've put this Christmas bell thingy around his waist. He doesn't seem to mind it, and it really helps to let us know where and what he's doing in the house. Like when he's getting into paper towels and he's kicking and wrestling with that those bells really start jingling.Oh Monty........you're such a sweetheart xoxo

Oh your poor son...hope that all goes well for him!
I enjoy your little videos Charlene and I have to say, I think you are enjoying having Monty visiting LOL
Glad you are back at the spinning even tho I don't see you using any of the lovely raw fleece that I know is in your stash.

I had a cat that LOVED little paper balls. I would tear off a piece of paper and squoohsh it into a ball. I'd stand at the bottom of the steps and she would run up to the landing. I'd throw the paper ball and she'd bat it around and then through the railings of the landing down to me below. She'd play like that as long as I'd stand there and throw the balls back to her. She could be anywhere in the house but when she'd hear me tear and crumple a piece of paper, she'd come running!
