This is their cat, Gilda, who is 8 months old (I think she’s around there) and loves string. She looks funny because she had ringworm and the shelter shaved her, and her fur hasn’t grown back to the right length. I’ve been trying to teach Gilda fetch, but I think I’m the one fetching more than Gilda. She’s a very sweet cat.
Also: I stole this image from my husband as it was better than the one I took. 😛
To make this about books too, I also went to a friends of the library sale and bought a copy of S.L.Viehl’s Biorescue , and this copy of Gone with the Wind for my mom. Mom always tells the story of how she used to have this really nice copy of Gone with the Wind, one of her favorite books of all time, and someone borrowed it and never gave it back. I thought this copy was pretty, although probably not as fancy as the one my mom had, since that was leather and this is just very embossed and gilted. I’ve never read this book by the way.
