I found a book on one of my shelves (okay, it's a windowsill, and I hope it becomes an unemployed windowsill again one of these days) that belonged to my husband, so that was a bonus. I discovered several books I didn't know I had, and a few I really want to read.
The cats are no help at all.

Speaking of cats, we took Wendy and Possum to the vet on Saturday for check-ups and shots, and their weights are just right. Wendy is 9.5 lbs, down from a high of 12. Possum is 13.9 lbs, down from a high of 17.5. They don't need to lose another ounce, which means we should feed them a little more to keep their weight stable. If the youngsters would stop snitching food from Wendy and Possum's bowls, all would be well.
All would really be well if we could get into the habit of brushing their teeth. My vet brushes her cats' teeth every day. I've been planning to make this part of our routine — along with more regular grooming for the boys, at least — since these kittens arrived. I have everything I need to get started and our vet showed me how to do it. But the only real progress I've made so far is that I've added feline dental care to my List of Things to Stop Procrastinating about. I won't tell you how long that list is, but there are still items from high school on there. I've also been procrastinating about updating that list.
