If you read Mindy's blog, you know that there are very few people in the world who love animals more than she does. And you also know that she has a soft spot for animals who need extra care. So Mindy recently brought home a little kitten with a parasitic infection who likely would not have made it had she not brought it home from the crapful pet store in which it was living.
Mindy knows that whenever she wants to adopt another critter, all she has to do is email me and ask me if she should and I will tell her to go for it, because (and it's the God's truth) any animal that is lucky enough to be adopted by Mindy will live a better life than it could almost anywhere else. So I egged her on to bring home this kitten, this itteh bitteh kitteh, and out of gratitude (or revenge?) she named it "C.J." (My middle name is Jean.)
Now I feel a proprietary interest in this kitteh. The kitteh needs to be kept extra warm while it recovers and so in an attempt to procrastinate from redoing the buttonhole band on my second sweater for KnitScene, I knit this:
An itteh bitteh kitteh sweateh.
Because I piteh the itteh bitteh kitteh. And I don't want the itteh bitteh kitteh to feel shitteh.
