Saki Invictus

Our cat Saki is back from his surgery to remove the little plastic nub he had idiotically swallowed.  Idiot.  He seems to be doing fine, a little dazed, but not messing with his scar or having any troubles.  Part of the substantial bill included morphine; unfortunately, it was for him and not R Man and me, although considering how much we paid, it seems like we could have gotten at least a small bump.

He has a tiny, little purple scar on his belly.  If you've never seen a partially shaved cat, you'll have to take my word for it that they are both pathetic and pretty funny looking.  R Man and I try to pretend we're some Barbara Stanwyckian broads and talk tough about what a pain Saki is, but having him spend the night in the vet hospital revealed our true doting old aunties' nature.  How embarrassing.

    Ain't it the truth between cat misbehavior and human klutziness, we go through paper towels like, oh never mind.

  7. I don't know why anyone would want children when you can have a cat. Our little tabby is sleeping on th bed with my partner as I type. We're moving next month and my biggest concern is how the cat will adjust. The rest is just gravy.

In Which We Take a Trip

  I was reminded of the following story by this charming illustration I stumbled across on Tumblr.  It is a sheet of blotter acid from back ...
