Well we are now home after a long day of work. I didn't get the drawing redone.. and I only cast on for the purple sock. Not a lot done, but those things weren't 'work!'
J pulled out an old electric fence today, and painted and installed shelves in the new building. He also cleaned a humongous fish-tank that had been sitting outside for years! When the fish-tank was bleached, rinsed and dry, J and our boss moved it inside the building.
Our boss picked up a set of superballs specifically for Willow and Sally! The girls make awesome leaping catches. I wish I could get some action-shots of those jumps. It is humorous to see Willow (usually a slug) jump-chase after the ball. She just gets ready to grab it with both paws, and it bounces away again.
We dropped a superball into the fish-tank, and introduced the kittens to the 'glass box.' This was a frustrating experiment for them. I have concluded that Willow is smart. However, she is usually too lazy to show it off!
Willow understood that the ball was inside the box after a few bounces.. eventually climbing up on top of the edge, and then into the box. Sally kept thinking the ball would magically get out and continue going in the direction it was headed. Poor Salamander! I really thought she would catch on to this, seeing her monkey-like ability to open doors, cupboards and turn on faucets.
Chris - I showed Miss I. at work the picture of Chaos 'looking innocent.' She said he looks like a little sweetheart ;o)
