So, yesterday was a previously-arranged Day in the South to do the accumulated Southern errands, and, ohbytheway to stop by Pine Point and Old Orchard Beach, Camp Ellis and the Great City of Saco, to make sure everything there was all right and tight.
I’m pleased to report that we look to be in good shape to meet the summer.
This morning, we took Mozart to the vet. He has not recovered his spirits since Socks left us, and even though we’re giving him lots of Mozart time and flying mouse (Mozart is not a fan of the Red Dot; Scrabble, however, is a Mighty Red Dot Hunter), he clings and cries and is clearly unhappy about something.
On examination, the vet finds him to be in pretty good shape, for an Elder Cat; his teeth are good, his heart sounds strong, lungs clear. There’s what might be a touch of arthritis in his right hip, but, really, at 15, you can expect to be a touch stiff.
The vet did do blood work, and we’ll hear back about those results this afternoon.
In the meantime, we have an email interview to finish up for the BEA, and I’ve gotta get some work done.
Hope everyone is having a reasonably enjoyable day.
