We brought a very drugged Flash home from the vet yesterday afternoon. Poor thing couldn't walk in a straight line, but he refused to not be involved in anything we were doing so he kept staggering out like a Kennedy on a three day leave. Libby immediately took control of the situation and curled up with him, because when Libby wants to nap he naps. She's now finished her kitten vaccinations and according to the vet, is old enough to spay. Oh my. She seems so little!

Noir is in fine health, but Nyx has both an eye ulcer and a respiratory infection. We discussed putting her in the infirmary during her treatment but decided changing her environment would likely put too much stress on her and removing her from Noir wouldn't be good, either. Nyx has a follow up appointment on Thursday to check on the infection and re-check the eye.

Given that I missed Furkid Friday photos, here's a pic of Libby curled up with Flash post-teeth cleaning:

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Sarah Palin and her bid to be a heartbeat away from being President.

The old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Palin is a post turtle.”

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old rancher said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, it’s a post turtle.”

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain.

“You know she didn’t get up there by herself, she doesn’t belong up there, she doesn’t know what to do while she is up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with.”

Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were

I was pretty impressed by this one. I adore saturated, jewel tone colors but tend towards geometric patterns if they are traditional and don't make my eyes cross.

We took Flash and Gracie for a walk tonight and Libby decided to follow us. She bounded along in people's yards (there's no sidewalks in our neighborhood), racing in and out of fences, bounding over rocks, hassling our neighbor's sheep, and chasing cottontails.

Poor Flash was besides himself with anxiety, he kept looking over his shoulder to whine at her to keep up. About halfway home she got tired, so Josh carried her the rest of the way.

This evening I went to give the indoor bunnies a carrot for their evening treat and found Shadow. No warning at all, she was doing fine this morning when I petted her. Our Miss Manners bun will be missed.

Kodiak seems to be doing well, we'll keep an eye on her.
