Felix has landed!

Felix has landed in Kitty Krafts!

After a briefing of over an hour on his convalescence Felix was finally able to go home with us last night.  There followed a slow drive home so as not to shoogle him around too much.

Today he has been down at the shop with us and he seems to be enjoying being somewhere different.  He's still sleeping a lot but that's okay as it allows his bones to knit without him wandering about too much.  As you'll see from the pictures, he has a bit of metalwork showing which will be removed after 8 - 12 weeks, then he's back to being his usual dingbat self.

He'll be at the shop with us every day for the next few weeks so please pop in and say hello.

It's in the bag!

Everyone is busy with their Paperbag projects just now.  It's so quiet as they are all concentrating.

It's amazing what can be done with a brown paper grocery bag, and they are all having fun finding out, even when it has nothing to do with shopping.
