    Clever radio-tech Charlotte soon detected a leaking HV Cap, ever curious kitten! we promptly grabbed her, of course. Bartho was counting the screws.

    Just messing around in IARU, Emma wanted to come help provide CAT control. Just a wire on the balcony. I should probably try to make contacts instead of taking pictures of cats.

    I used a filter due to the poor lighting. Just ran my wire through the door probably not the best but you work with what you can. Worked a few on 20 CW so far.

    How about a cat on a wire?

    I may have posted about this silly cat before. It involves one of our three cats. All are rescues. All have histories. All are quite unique -- as are all cats.

    We named this cat Hemmingway because she is polydactal -- she has thumbs on her front paws.

    (Most of Earnest Hemingway's cats were polydactal.)

    We thought she was just a kitten when we adopted her. She was just 4 pounds. Our veterinarian told us she was about 3-4 years old, and had mothered several litters of kittens. Having a new home at our place, it only took only a few weeks for her to get to 8 pounds and within a few months she stabilized between 11-12 pounds. We found that her previous human got incarcerated, and this cat was turned loose on the streets to fend for herself.

    I don't quite know how to describe her, other than being very affectionate, very well behaved, extremely vocal when she wants something -- but she is a real rascal and thief.

    My wife has been sewing "designer" COVID masks for the last couple of months. It is crazy how Hemingway has stolen so many pipe cleaners, packs of eleastic, spools of thread, and so much more.

    Hemingway has learned how to pry open the latches on my tool boxes and parts bins.
    We find stashes of pipe cleaners, elastic and thread spools, long nose pliers, capacitors, etc. in the strangest places.

    My cats have told me that once they have all developed thumbs and can use a can-opener, they will have no further use for us. ;)
