Hey folks! Sorry for the interruption in normal service. I’ll be back next week with more badly-scanned photographs, cat pics, and doggerel - promise!
Day 220. Pet Week, Day 2. The A/C went out last night. This is how the cats tried to stay cool while we waited for the repairperson. Maybe their furry little bellies act as heat sinks?
By the way, the adorable vampire cat in the upper right corner is still available for adoption. While we initially thought she was FIV+, a fancier PCR-based test revealed that she doesn’t actually have the virus (she just has the antibodies; it’s likely she was vaccinated for FIV), so she’s totally healthy and ready for a good home (other than ours!) in the Austin, TX area. Please help me not be
any more of a crazy cat lady than I already am!
Day 53. Nicholas stars in “Night of the Living Jazz Hand.”
(During the making of this picture, Nicholas protested that the sweet old lady he used to live with never made him model for grainy photographs of dubious artistic merit. I pointed to the bowl of premium kibble supplied as part of his new living situation and a compromise was quickly reached. Thank goodness he didn’t hold out for single color m&ms, a private trailer, or fancy mineral water.)
