Sick Cats, Lost Cat, and Norah
My friend Will Briarwood sent me an e-mail this morning.
“Wanted to update you on a few things. First, all the cats are doing ok, thanks for asking. Little guy is having surgery Thursday. Big guy doesn’t seem to be having any new problems, and his fur is growing back from his surgery last month. And one of the girls is going in to vet tomorrow, because she has an occasional cough, which I’m hoping is just a hairball problem.”
He also mentioned some stories on the pet food recall.
“The New York Times had a story about the Chinese arresting someone for the contaminated wheat gluten. And the Los Angeles Times says the FDA has reports of over four thousand – 4000! – animals dying.”
And regarding Lost:
“You probably saw the stories about Lost, how ABC wants to do only sixteen episodes for each of the remaining seasons, and run them all in a row, with no repeats. And you probably noticed that, even though Eyepatch Guy returned, there have been no sightings of his cat, which was abandoned in the jungle.”
And regarding Norah Jones:
“I did sell my ticket – I got less than I paid for it, but at least I made another fan happy. Will let you know how the show is.”
