No Extra GoCat for you Two!

If you are squeamish, don't look any further. You guys asked for more cat pictures but nevertheless you have been warned......

This is what I found in our living room when I came home from work yesterday. This is the first cat/yarn explosion we have had in this house, and it will be the last. Believe me they did not get extra GoCat last night.

In case you're wondering, Yes, that is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock prentending to be a (cat-made) spider web on my living room floor. But to be fair, I was tempted to roll around in it too.


Please ignore the carpets, they were filthy like that when we moved in, they are next on the list of things to be replaced.....

After an hour and a half on untangling, I'm only half way there. Luckily, they hadn't attacked the half knitted sock. For that they may well have been dead. Although I held up Velma to the window this morning and showed her the bin-men. I threatened to feed her to them if she ever did it again. I think she was scared.

Anyway, how can I stay cross when they look like this.....

Velma and Daphne, the Telly Addicts.

Our vet warned us that tortoiseshells are known to vets as 'naughty torties'. I told him not to be silly, I'd never known a bad one, and we've had a few. Maybe he was right......

They are just appreciative of the Lorna's Laces in their own catty way! They are so cute.

Look, rolling in the yarn! How can you get too mad at other yarn lovers?

What adorable kitties - but so so bad!

I love calicos! I've always wanted one but my two are nearly-identical tabbies. At least they leave my yarn alone, though. :)

I have a special fondness for calicos and yours are too cute. It HAD to be the Lorna's Laces--they'll never touch the cheap stuff!

Wow, dude... good luck untangling that! I hope they didn't chew or tear the yarn itself at all.

Cute if naughty...

Oh, my word!

I would have screamed indefinable random syllables! Such nice yarn, too!

This is why dogs are woman's best friend.

Oh my. Our kitten is as just as destructive, thank goodness he hasn't gotten the yarn yet.

Bad, bad, bad, wonderful kittens.
