and his name is Scipio, after Scipio Africanus of Rome. Offspring #1 gets all the credit, it was his suggestion. I guess Ryan (Offspring #1) was impressed with what he learned about Scipio during European History last semester. I don't remember learning about Scipio, so I "Googled" him. Thank goodness for the wonder of the internet. I figured this kitty could use the name of a fighter and a statesman, so Scipio he is. Here he is, looking wise.
Knitting and spinning are taking a back seat to kitty minding, but the socks are very nearly done, I might actually bind off tonight.
