We mainly like sleeping on each other.
I may have mentioned that there is preciously little blogging going on at the moment. Quite a bit of that has had to do with working all the hours that God sends at the moment. I will be very happy when by mid May when this rush of stuff is over. In other news, we are looking after some foster kittens again for the DSPCA. Now we have a rule that we never take fewer than three kittens, mainly because we're well aware that five cats is just too many. At least if we have three, we know we have to give them back.
Now as it happened when I explained this to the new girl at the DSPCA, her ears pricked up and she said "So you'd be happy to take more than three?"
Running, jumping, climbing humans - the days are just packed!
And that ladies and germs is how we ended up with six foster kittens - they are
Hillary - who likes climbing things.
Myrtle - who moans and cries all the time.
Louis - (short for Richelieu) because he has a black spot on his chin.
Louis is their leader.
Mary - who cleans things mercilessly.
This is definitely not a reference to my mother in law.
Spike - because his fur will just not stay down.
Monty - short for "The Comte de Monte Kitten", so named because
we couldn't come up with a name for him after the first few days.
But also sleeping.
...and occasionally washing.
We will only have these chaps for five weeks, but they're already proving a hit. They are also much cleaner than the previous crew.
But lest you think that there will be no wargaming at all in this blog, I present you with a picture from our Kursk campaign on Sunday. My semi-finished Stuka taking the fight to some Soviet lend lease armour in the final game. This was a great success and went well. This was one of the first times we've used the air rules in an Overlord game and they made for some interesting play. I was very happy with it, but that's for another post.
