Virus and the City: The Cats

I am enjoying all the time with the cats. Animals are such great mood-regulators, aren’t they? They make everything better. This is them inspecting my candy delivery.

This is them about do something destructive. They’re still relatively young (three years old) so knocking over things, ripping up things, is their reason for living. I keep having to replace my shower curtain because for whatever God forsaken reason they like to eat it. This scares me because one of them swallows the plastic pieces and I’m terrified it might become a foreign body. At the ASPCA hospital we’re always seeing animals with foreign bodies. If they pass it great, but we perform a lot of surgeries to remove them and that doesn’t always lead to a happy ending.
