Pinto the cat looking unwellSunday, the big excitement was hearing about Stephanie’s cat Pinto. He’s only in this picture because he wasn’t feeling well; he’s still a bit scared of me and often hides under the couch if I’m around. Apparently, he was sick on Saturday. She took him to the vet, where they did an X-ray, found some sort of obstruction in his small intestine, and quoted $2000 to perform surgery to remove it. This morning, she found a long piece of string near the litterbox—how’s that for an obstruction? He should be feeling better soon if there are no additional complications. It’s still a bit nerve-wracking, and I’m now very glad that Moira has never decided to eat weird things.

Back to work tomorrow. Yay, or something.
