Tomorrow I will be "cooking koftas" at the Amherst Farmers Market - made with our ground lamb. It is supposed to be a beautiful day so I hope to get some new lamb converts. Stop by if you are local. Not local? Pick up the recipe here.
My friend Brett Bara is doing a crowd funding campaign (indiegogo) for her new "Brooklyn Craft Company." Check it out here if you are curious. There is a video.
Last night little Miro went off to his new home. It is very quiet here today without that little ball of energy.
His Mama Mittens is not very happy with us.
On Wednesday evening, Julia and I were sitting on the porch chatting. Petunia came and sat next to us. As the minutes went by, I noticed she seemed to be having contractions. I have never been privledged to sit with a cat as it gave birth - most of our mama cats have given birth in closets away from the dogs and people. Not this time. She pushed and pushed and then screamed. I had never seen or heard that either! I had to pull the first one out as it was breech. It took until 9:30 and 3 more screams. Petunia did it. Three little "tuxedo" kittens and one gray tiger. They all have "double paws." but look like little rats now.
They are still where she had them and we are watching them nurse and crawl around - all piled up on top of each other as if they were still in the womb. Awesome. I'll keep you posted. In 8 weeks I'll have some kitties available if anyone needs a furry friend.
Have a great weekend everyone.
