Tolly needs a new home

UPDATE 26/11/2012
Tolly has been adopted by a lovely Twitter peep @matonman1, to be a friend to his younger cat Mamie (who looks a lot like a young Vada, Tolly's old housemate!) I am so pleased and I hope they will be great friends. Thankyou to everyone one who has helped out here, and thankyou especially to @matonman1


Due to [redacted rant] beyond my control, I'm once again looking for a new home for my cat Tolly. He has lived with my with my ex-husband since we split, who now isn't allowed to keep him. I can't have him either.

Lovely Tolly needs to find a new home! Can you help? Please?

He's a male domestic short hair, de-sexed and microchipped, 9 years old. Healthy as a horse, very affectionate and used to children (he's had the trial by fire of growing up with my 3 year old Luka!)

He is used to spending a lot of his time outside (and prefers to do his business outdoors, but he knows his way around a litter tray too).

If you can give him a home, or know someone who can, please contact me at Tolly is currently living in Ivanhoe, Vic.

Here's some happy snaps of the boy himself:

Poems in the wild #33

Poem #33 (9 of clubs) was released at the cash register at The Mess Hall, after a very nice glass of the verdicchio.

Knit two, purl two
Knit two, purl two:
Curve of baby shoulders
certainty in newborn cardis.

Knit two, purl one
Knit two, purl one:
Beanies for the footy
bobbled with a pom-pom.

Knit one, drop one
Knit one, purl one:
Mitts to wear to school
mandatory greys and blues.

Knit one, drop one
Purl one, drop one:
Gifts to take away to uni
a scarf of empty needles.
