Lest You Think Yuri Is The Only Hot Boy…

This was the scene I found this morning – Lola artfully draped over Leonardo’s back, sleeping peacefully.

Leo as Lola's Mattress

Yes, Leo’s really in there – he’s the patch of white fur and the tail to the left, and the stray paw over on the right.

As further proof that Lola was pretty relaxed with the situation, here’s what she did a moment later:

Lola's Big Yawn

At least, I think I’d have to be pretty relaxed to let out a stretch and yawn that large! This is now my desktop image on the computer.

As to knitting – I’m in a slump. So I’m going to try going back to spinning for a bit. I may still need some mindless knitting project to take with me to Panera tonight, but my spinning has been neglected. I started a year and a half ago, and still have projects on the drop spindles from my first days! Now that the boys don’t need their own cage, we have a little more room again in the living room – essential for spinning, since I have to pull out a different chair to use than my comfy armchair I knit in.

Crafting pictures eventually, I promise. Meanwhile, enjoy the rats, and have a great day!

Congrats on getting everyone together in the same cage without any blood loss. It sounds like everything is going well. And, ain’t it cute that Lola has a new pillow…lol.

I hope things continue to go well for the ratties. And I hope you and Gryphon are also doing well.

Take Care!

Let Gryphon know I hope he gets well soon.

I was just coming by to show you this link for an ikea hack that the rats might like someday in the far far future, medical bills are a bitch.
