Today was the Big Day! Appropriately, New Year’s Day, 2012. Sheba, who arrived in our house before Christmas, was finally let out of her box.
My hubby helped me, and he lifted her out and put her on the table for me.
She’s a fierce black kitty with Claws and Teeth ready to cut anything I throw at her! However, she’s still tied up with cable ties which need to be removed before she will cut.
Here is her control panel. I’ve been mugging up on how she works by watching Youtube videos and visiting the Black Cat Forum (great folks on there, so friendly and helpful – “The only stupid question is the one you don’t ask”!!) and soon I shall be pressing her buttons as if I’ve been doing it all my life.
To the left of her buttons she’s got a neat little box to put her bits in – spare blades etc. On the lid of the box is the Black Cat logo which looks like a very fierce kitty indeed!
This is her back view – not easy to get a very good photo because there’s not a lot of room.
I had this beautiful notebook as a present, and I’ve decided to use it for making notes about Sheba – different settings etc. It’s appropriate that the book is decorated with cats!
The book is kept closed by a flap with a magnetic strip.
Inside the front cover are the most beautiful end papers, also decorated with cats.
The pages are lined, and there is a bookmark.
Inside the back cover is a handy pocket for putting loose sheets into.
I think this is such a beautiful object, quite fitting to go with my beautiful new Black Kitty Sheba.
Finally, here’s the video I’ve made of Sheba’s Coming Out Party.
Jiminy eat your heart out. Time to make room for the Coolest Black Cat on the Block.
