I really wanted to participate in this month’s Mixology Monday, but sometimes life just gets in the way of your plans, y’know?
We have a couple of stray cats who frequent our backyard. A few months ago, one of them done got herself knocked up. She delivered her babies at the end of April, and after eight weeks, they started moving to solid food. This was the ideal time to adopt them out.
Homeless kittens in Bushwick, Brooklyn, is just one of those great human-interest stories that no one can pass up, and so, to our surprise, we found shout-outs on New York magazine’s Intelligencer blog and Gothamist.
So that was my weekend. I might have, otherwise, sourced recipes, histories, and ingredients for Mixology Monday, but instead I rescued kittens from a neighbor’s yard (with the neighbor’s permission) and helped the babies get into new families.
They’re all adopted now, and we’re working on getting the mama cat into a safe home. The full story, with photos, is on my wife’s Flickr stream, if you’re interested.
For actual cocktail goodness, however, click over to Morsels & Musings for this month’s MxMo. I promise my next post will have fewer kittens and more cocktails.
