By Your Leave...

 I know that this is supposed to be a knitting blog and all that.  I really do try to keep to the genre.  I even have a little rule for myself which states that I have to at least mention knitting, spinning, or fiber in each post.  If nothing else, then I need to confess that I am doing nothing fibery at the moment.  That means that I have mentioned knitty stuff and it counts.  

See?  I'm committed to the theme.  

But, I'll make you a deal.  Can you just give me 'til Sunday to be all Kitty Headed instead of Knitty Headed?  I have this new kitty and he is really cute.  He is also rather young and something of a night owl.  Much like any new baby, he has impacted the sleeping patterns around here.  He is taking over to some degree.  I admit that I am a little obsessed at the moment...

Just give me 'til Sunday.  One more day of all Prometheus All The Time.  That's it.  I swear it.  Then I'll go back to dazzling the blogosphere with fine knitwear and masterful spinning.  You can count on it.  

Probably...

Not sure?  Well, why don't you take a look at this handsome face?


Can I get an "Awwwwwww?"



And how about this one?


He's smiiiiiling at youuuuuuuuu!!!


Hmm...tough crowd.  How about I go for a little comic relief?


Frolicking kitty with bald back...


I see we still have some holdouts.  Let's try a more pensive pose.


Prometheus Amongst The Leaves


All right.  It's time for the Big Guns.  If this doesn't get you, then you are made of stone.  Pure, cold stone.  There is nothing more I can do for you.  Those of you with warmer hearts and a compromised Resistance To Cuteness, may need to sit down or have your inhalers somewhere close to hand.  This is gonna getcha.  It's gonna getcha hard.  Ready?  OK.  Here we go...


And I even got the yarny stuff in there...


Everyone OK?  I know that the stony people are...but what about the rest of you?  Do you need a minute to get a glass of water or go adopt a homeless cat?  Take your time.  We don't want anyone to get overwhelmed or faint.  This is a "safety first" kind of blog.  

One more day of kitty blogging.  I'll tell you all the cool things I've learned about my handsome boy, like how he doesn't care for Greenies and that his favorite things are feathery toys on strings.  Particularly those that jingle.  You can all be amazed by my creative response to his having learned to open all the cupboards.  I'll regale you with the tale of his experience with the battery operated kitty toy that was supposed to keep his kitteny self occupied but is now in several pieces.

And there will probably be another eight million pictures.  But it is only for one more day.  I know it's a lot.  If you need to, please feel free to go back to that last shot of his incredibly sweet face.  Take in all the smooshy cuteness.  Let the waves of snuggly goodness wash over you.  Give in to the urge to coo.  

That will help you get past my need to devote just one more day to my new baby.  Besides...deep down, you know you sort of love it, right?  Who wouldn't?????


I can barely look at you people right now...

aaaawwwwwwww...and big hugs to BFK as well! My kitties favorite toy is one a friend gave us at the holidays - a laser. My cat is addicted to the little red dot. Keeps them entertained and the best part is it requires almost no effort on your part. You can lay on the couch and drive him wild!

arf, arf, woof woof. That means hello from Sargeant to his new cousin. Can't wait for the sleepover.

He is beyond cute. If it weren't for the gas prices (and the fact that I don't get summer vacation), I'd drive up from Virginia to give him a gi-normous hug. Keep those pictures coming! And it looks like things have settled down a bit a home.

Bridget said...

It should be illegal to be that cute!

kmkat said...

Yes, please, keep the pictures coming! He made me smile and awwww and laugh, all in one post. What a charmer! (Give BFK some scritches for me, too, don't want her to feel neglected.)

Jeanne said...

Oh, come on--we all know this blog has been lost to Prometheus. ;-) He's soooooooo kyewwwwwttt! He really is! I wuvs marmies. I have two myself and one is a bi-color like Prometheus. They really settled down fast, didn't they? Kisses to both.

April said...

Well ...

"Sheepish Prometheus" does have a catchy ring to it.

Ooo, BFK ... not amused.

Donna Lee said...

He is a charmer. And he has fur which is like wool so he fits right into a knitting blog theme.

The Kelly Green Rogue said...

A new kitty! yeah!

Jacqui said...

take a month. seriously. with gas and food prices so high, new stash is out for many of us anyway. :)

big ol' kitty snuzzles for all!

Cathy said...

LOL...I can see BFK may have to join forces with my Bunny - enough with this already!!

Knitting Linguist said...

Excellent pictures -- especially of that sweet, smiling face (no, I do not mean the last picture of the poor BFK). You've clearly gotten the right cat, all right :) We can take more, bring it on.

lobstah said...

Wait, only one more day of Prometheus photos? NO! The adoring public demands more! I might die from squeeing though ;)

Good news from the shelter--there were three empty kennels in the section I clean. I guess they had a ton of adoptions on Saturday. Hooray!

Snuggles to the two adorable kitties!

Kath said...

Ohhhh....deh sweet face! That handsome boy is makin' me swoon. (But I think BFK will be lobbying for extra Greenies) And if your creative responses include bungee cords, strategically placed free weights, and quickly installed turn buttons and other miscellaneous bits of latch hardware - welcome to my world!

Beth said...

It's a good thing you only have one Greenie-loving cat. :) Both kitties look beautiful and very huggable!

Anne said...

It's very tactful of him to be interested in other kinds of toys & treats! Clearly this was meant to be. You didn't mean it about no more pictures, did you?

mehitabel said...

He's too adorable for words. Makes me want to go adopt a big smushy orange catboy myself! Oh wait, I already have 3 catboys... and that's my limit. One day I really will be the Crazy Cat Lady of Temple City, though; I got the title back when I had 5 of the critters.
Love to all of you!!

catsmum said...

ok ok ok already

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww

I'm currently wondering who is bigger Prometheus or Oakley ? - O is about the 8 kilo / 17 lb mark

Mia said...

Awwwwww!! REALLY cute pics Sheepie! We love "P" already *grin* and we totally understand. Talk kitty all ya want :)

knitseashore said...

Love, love, love Prometheus. He is the cutest boy in all of Maine. And that might include Patrick Dempsey too. :)
