Exercising an Arthritic Cat

It will come as a surprise to no one that Finney didn’t want to do any exercises involving his back legs. Later I remembered that he will happily follow a laser pointer light up a wall, so today I’m going to see how long I can get him to stay up on his hind legs going after a laser light.

It’s been a productive today so far. I just sent off a bunch of chapters to my friend Howard—tomorrow I will start the final two chapters of my book! I still have a bunch of editing to do on all the previous chapters, and only a month do it, and I’m not even sure how I’m going to fix the problems already pointed out, but still. Today I do not suck. Oh God, I just freaked myself out thinking of all I have yet to do. I can’t think about that.

Thinking about … kittens. Here’s a basket, Buddy, and a banjo.
