Next up! Gilbert is making biscuits on my belly; and if you look really close behind him you can catch a glimpse of Gimli as he takes a break from attacking my feet. The book is my June 2019 #BOTM, which has been collecting dust. I'm ready to get started and knock one off my #BOTMbacklog. It will also count as Sweden for #ReadingEurope2020. @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle

When the cats are comfy and no books are in reach, you resort to your least favorite way of reading-- the Kindle phone app. #kindle #lazysunday #snowyday #cuddlebuddy #littenkitten #catsoflitsy #adventuresofthegmen #itsthelittlethings #lifeisgood

Scochrane26 I try to make sure I rescue my book before the car gets comfy but doesn‘t always work. 1mo
cherinium @Scochrane26 Me too, but today I failed. I thought I had one, but turns out it was one I just finished a few days ago. The one I'm currently reading looks similar without the dust cover. I just grabbed the wrong one off my nightstand. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1mo

I had to ponder this one to fully form my opinion. Easy to read and just enough tension to make me want to keep reading, but something just didn't sit right with me. I really disliked Mary and just felt terrible for Hannah. Now that it's been a couple days, I think this book is utterly forgettable.

My cats wearing clothes are much more interesting. 💕 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen #catsinclothes

I've been missing my little Gimli the past couple days. He had to be hospitalized on Saturday and we've since learned that he has a serious congenital defect contributing to his failure to thrive. Currently awaiting a call with results of today's ultrasound. Trying to keep my mind occupied by revisiting Middle-Earth. #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen #literarynames

A kitten recuperating from pelvic limb injuries makes the perfect reading companion. Gimli is figuring out how we do things around here. 💕 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen #lapwarmer #readingpartner #onceuponabookclub

Soooooo, I'm a sucker and have decided to bring another (broken) kitty into my home. I've always wanted to name a cat Gimli, and although he's not a short and squat ginger, I've decided it's finally time to use the name. Then, I decided it is time for a reread of Tolkien's masterpieces in honor of the new arrival. Starting with Bilbo's tale. #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #newarrival #adventuresofthegmen #adoptdontshop

hgrimes I love him!!! What a lucky little dude! 😍 5mo
cherinium Thanks! This is the danger of my profession. I do nursing care in a high volume emergency veterinary hospital that is used often by several local rescue groups. This will have to be the last one for me though. I only get employee discounts on vet care for 4 animals, and I cannot afford them without the discount. I have officially reached my limit. 💕 5mo

cherinium @JulietBooks @rubyslippersreads @TheSpineView @ruskigurl16 @squirrelbrain @BookwormAHN @megzlynn @ladym30 @tournevis @annkuch13 Thanks to all of you! He has a long recovery ahead of him due to all his injuries from his run in with a car, but he's taking it all in stride and has been a model patient. It's his first night out of the hospital, and he is being SO spoiled. 🐾 5mo

This book was enjoyable. I'm not quite sure it lived up to the hype, but it was fun to read.

In other news, my derpy boy is trying to pull himself up to the top of the messy bookcase. I'm sure there's something up there he wants to knock off, bc that's his thing lately. He has broken 3 custom made mugs recently, which breaks my heart. I cannot leave my tea on a table long enough to go pee. Ugh! #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen

Scochrane26 My previous cat broke several glasses. I had lived w/ my parents briefly, & my cat & dad hung out in fam room, where dad let him knock over his glass. So, then I could never leave a cup unattended. Sorry for your mugs. Good thing he‘s cute. (edited) 5mo
cherinium @Scochrane26 His cuteness is the only good thing going for him lately. 😉 The mugs were a wedding gift from my best friend, so it will probably sting for a bit longer. I haven't told her yet... 😥 5mo
Crazeedi This picture is the best! Even though it's bad kitty, it's still adorable😽😻 5mo
cherinium @Crazeedi I love immortalizing his naughty deeds. He is such a clown. Frustrating and endearing all at the same time. 5mo

QuietlyLaura Naughty precious kitty! 😻😂 7mo
Soubhiville No Gabriel! Not ok kitty! 7mo
cherinium @Soubhiville I think that's exactly what I said when I caught him in the act. He's so bad! He's like a rebellious teenager. The more I say no, the more determined he is to keep doing whatever it is that I don't want him doing. 7mo

cherinium @QuietlyLaura In that moment, I did not find him to be very precious!. It's a good thing he's cute. 7mo
cherinium @Soubhiville @QuietlyLaura I should make the disclaimer that he is a bit mentally challenged due to a congenital defect (hydrocephalus) that obviously caused some long term brain damage. As he grew, the hydrocephalus resolved, but the damage was already done. When I got him, he had some physical limitations (jumping & balance), but he was able to overcome those over time. #specialneedskitty 7mo
Soubhiville @cherinium one of my boys is defiant like that. He knows our buttons and pushes them whenever we aren‘t giving him enough attention. He opens cabinets, knocks things off tables, counters, and shelves, and sits right in front of the middle of the TV when we try to watch it. 🙄 I‘m glad your boy‘s health problems mostly resolved! He‘s a beauty. 💙 7mo
rretzler @Soubhiville Sounds like a normal cat to me. 😹 7mo

Read half of this book last night. Hope to finish tonight. It's quite good, which makes me happy, because Beloved didn't work out so well for me.

I keep trying to remember if the book was chewed up when I got it out of the LFL, or if my naughty cat got ahold of it. I'm leaning toward Gabriel being the culprit. #littlefreelibrary #adventuresofthegmen #damagedbook #naughty #littenkitten #catsoflitsy
