Cat-sitting for the Mosers!

So today I journeyed from my house to the lovely home of my friends Julie and Josh Moser to babysit their cats Sunshine, Griffin, and Pneuma while they’re away. I love their house – it’s full of relics that reflect their personalities. It’s cozy, comfortable, and cute. Honestly, I hope my house is just like theirs when I get one.

I walk into their house today and immediately am greeted by 3 sets of giant eyes. Since I’ve never babysat for cats before, my first instinct was to call them by their names. So I commence introducing myself to them, although we’ve already met, and continue rambling to them about how excited I am to be watching them for a couple of days. They looked at me like I am completely insane. Which is probably true. There’s just something about cats that is remarkably human.

I arrived at the Moser’s at around 3, and left at like 8 to go home and exchange cars (my car has a nasty habit of randomly sounding the alarm, requiring me to hit a button to make it stop). When I returned with my Mom’s van, I brought with me an awesome cat toy – basically, a bunch of threads attached to a stick – which Sunshine loved but Griffin just sniffed at and walked away. I feel like Griffin is just warming up to me and isn’t really sure how to feel yet. Sunshine just loves everyone and Pneuma is the same way.

I also, in the last couple of hours, decided to pick up knitting. Mom and I tried this a couple of years ago, me getting stuff to crochet and her getting stuff to knit, and we epic-ly failed. We never even produced any stitches – apperently it was too hard? I’m hoping that this time around I can actually learn to knit. So 15 minutes before Joann Fabrics closed tonight I ran in, got some knitting needles and some awesome mustard yellow thread (I have in my mind this incredible thick mustard-yellow scarf that I could create) and got out just as the store was closing.  Wish me luck!
