I told you all that I would tell you what the mystery object was this week. I did enjoy the guesses, but no, I'm not pregnant and we aren't adopting Tony Romo. Maybe I should just show you what the mystery object looks like when it's being used.
Yes, it's a felted kitty bed! I used the Chaton Minet pattern
with stash yarn. The last picture you saw was the unfelted bed, and of course it's felted here. Yesterday we got the kitten to put in it (which is really the most important part of a cat bed). Don't worry, there's plenty of growing room for him in there!
He doesn't have a name yet but he's a Platinum Point Tonkinese (same breed as Ramius, who was a Champagne Mink). He's got a great purr motor and doesn't hesitate to let us know that we've displeased him (serious lungs on the little guy). He's not too sure about Logan yet, but they touched noses this morning. Logan was wagging the entire time and when the kitten had had enough, he hissed. Logan was naturally terrified. The kitten was a little overwhelmed by everything yesterday, but he's doing some more exploring and feeling better about things this morning. He's about 15 weeks old now and when he curls up, he's smaller than Logan's head. (Due to the size difference, contact will be supervised between them for a while.) He seems to like all his people - particularly Caleb who is holding him in these last two pictures. He greeted Caleb with a purring head butt this morning!
As soon as he settles in more and is up to it, he'll be blogging of course. I'll let you know when we have a name picked out for him too! Sorry about all the mystery, I just didn't want to share him on the blog until we had him home, but once we had found his breeder and put down a deposit, I was just too excited not to at least show you the bed.
