This morning I was awakened by the arrival on my chest of a purring grey juggernaut with a big ball of waste yarn in its mouth - which ball, as I subsequently discovered, featured a tail that extended out the door, all the way down the hall, and half-way down the stairs.

I did not have the camera handy at the time (No! I’m not that blog-geeky yet! I do not keep the camera loaded and ready on my nightstand! though… maybe I should…?), but I’m afraid this set me thinking, and thinking set me researching, and researching set me doing. I am NOT going to apologize, so there, but a couple of you (naming no names, of course, but I might be secretly thinking of Steve and Helen, among others) may wish to stop reading here and now. Everyone else… proceed at your peril.

I’ve never done anything like this before, but I don’t guarantee I’ll never do anything like it again. It turns out to be awfully hard to stop.

    LOL - I love the wild eyes in that last shot. That baby has a serious catnip addiction, doesn’t she?!

    Ptolemy is totally adorable! Such an idiot baby. I hate to confess it, but I love Lolcats. Yours are most excellent! I also love that sneaky reference to EZ!

    Our Lucy did the same thing last year. My husband woke to find yarn that apparently was picked up in the family room in our lower level; carried/played with all the way up the steps, wrapped around the legs of the baby grand (several times) and then allowed to roll back down the steps to the lower level.

    Someone had TOO MUCH FUN while we slept!

    Lucy now has her own ball of waste yarn (wound tightly with end secured) so that she will leave mine alone.

    Thanks for sharing the hilarious pictures!

    Oh, that is too funny! I was giggling away and my daughter came in to see what was so funny, so I had to explain all the knitting terms (the fiber gene skipped her), and it was *still* funny to her, that being the hallmark of the best esoteric humor, that even when explained, the joke comes through.

    That is one crazed cat.

    You are tscertain that the waste yarn was not made of hemp?

    oh, thanks a bunch..I never heard of lolcats, so of course I googled it and now have yet another way to waste time on the web….

    *laughs* I am so not going to look up lolcats, though; I truly don’t need another computer addiction.

    Usually, if our cats are that fierce, they’re chasing each other, not yarn, but sometimes….. Aren’t juggernauts on your chest a *lovely* way to wake up?
