Of Biomarkers and Kitties

In my vocation, we have things called biomarkers. These are biochemical indicators, or landmarks, which are tightly linked to some underlying process, e.g. a particular disease or a response to a drug intervention. If we detect the presence of a particular biomarker, we then can make a prediction about what's going on in the organism.

We have a biomarker here at Chez NK. His name is Gibson, and the specific biomarker is kitty hair...white kitty hair to be exact. When I peruse my photos after downloading them, it's always the photo with the kitty hair that I want to post to the blog! LOL. The problem is, I never see the pesky hair until the darn image is enlarged on the computer monitor. Even those sticky lint rollers don't get it all off, there is always one remaining...resistance is futile.

I could not get him off that Salish Sea Sock for the life of me...I figured quality time with him being très cute (look at those feet!) outweighed a pic for the blog...this time.

Your knitting and photography are unbeatable, but a shot of Gibson never fails to draw me in!

There is nothing cuter than chubby kitty feet. Chubby kitty feet posing on knitwear sends me right over the edge! :-)
