First things first: Oslo is doing great! That little rascal has gained a whole pound now that he eats mostly food instead of plastic and rubber. His coat is softer and shinier now, too, and he’s a non-stop playing machine. He went back to the vet yesterday for the remainder of his kitten shots, and the doc said he looked great. Every day with this awesome little guy feels like a gift.
Next up, the old man of the house just turned five! I do question the wisdom of making Cairo’s birthday July 4th, since he spent most of the day cowering under the bed or on the shelf in the closet. I may have to retroactively decide he was born on the 3rd or the 5th, since it’s just a guess anyway.
And today is July 7th, the fourth anniversary of my cat Zar’s death. I still hold that fuzzy grey dude in my heart and think of him often. We went through a lot togther, that cat and I. He will not be forgotten.
