Here are two shots of the little kitty I’ve been fussing over this past week, courtesy of Jen, UCSC’s Animal Control Officer (with uploading by Melissa).
Isn’t she pretty? With the copper tinge to her fur, I realized her name must be “Penny.” In fact, I went whole hog and decided her full name is Penelope Angelina Lambeauxâ€”though of course the people who adopt her will come up with a name of their own.
The “Lambeaux” comes from one of my beloved former catsâ€”Joanna Clambake Lambeauxâ€”a sweet little pastel calico who began life as a feral kitten. Like Joey, Penny has the courage to reach out for affection, despite her knowledge of the many dangers and unkindnesses of this world.
P.S. I know there’s been an absolute dearth of knitting content here lately. I promise to work on remedying this over the weekend.
