What am I thinking?!?!?

Meet Scout, 3 pounds of furry love that turned up on my back porch day before yesterday. He will be making his home here in my apartment for the next month or so while he recovers from reconstructive surgery on his lower jaw. You can't really see it in the pictures, but he's obviously been through the ringer. He's got healing injuries on his forehead, tail, around his eyes, and his front legs. The worst injury was to his lower lip, which had been completely pulled back from his jaw (yeah, about as gross as it sounds). He had a little operation to fix the injury yesterday evening. Hopefully, he will recover with no complications and enjoy a full and healthy life.

In the meantime, he's a pretty happy little guy. He has the loudest purr you've ever heard, and he loves his new people person (that's me). And he's enjoyed playing with my cats' toys:

Now all he needs is a forever home. I'm working on that part.

Meanwhile, my cats would happily pitch the little guy out the door. Especially after he had the nerve to curl up in my lap. I've never heard such foolish racket from a pack of spoiled rotten animals! And I think Miss Priss and Lucky were a little cranky to begin with because I busted them the other day. They are always growling at each other and chasing one another around the apartment. For the first time ever, I caught them doing this:

Bwah ha ha ha. I think they might secretly like one another!

Have a crafty week guys. Hopefully, I'll back in a day or two with some stitchy finishes and more layouts from my Egyptian vacation.

OMG, the poor little baby! What are you thinking, you ask? You are obviously just a wonderful person for taking this little guy in and helping him back to health. What a cutie! I hope he and the two full-timers get along ok and you manage to find him a permanent home.

Hi Robin,
He is so sweet. I wish that I could take him but I think Binx would beat him up. Rich and I are having a hard time adjusting to the boys.
I hope that you are staying cool.

Oh, he looks like a sweetie. I hope you find the perfect home for him. He deserves a good happy life! :)

Oh that poor kitten. How awful. He looks like the sweetest thing.

And the other two - they look like kids - fight with each other all the time and when you don't see them, they're getting along well.
