I did not do any Black Friday shopping this year. It seemed a little tacky that some places opened at midnight to cram shoppers in, so I opted out with a therapy session in the morning, and lunch with the Stribz and Charlie in the afternoon at No. 1 Pho.
In Speckle news, she’s been around to the point where I didn’t even need a live trap to catch her, I was able to pick her up and bring her in. She got a good bill of health at the vet and is going to go for shots tomorrow. She is such a sweet, mellow thing.
I wish I could keep her; but with Roxie and Reese right now, there’s no way I can take a third cat. I am carefully vetting adoptive parents for her though, rather than just dropping her at the Humane Society.
As I type this, she’s zonked out on my lap from playing kitten games all day.
I’m looking forward to telling you a happy story about where Speckle will be living forever.
Onwards! To the Friday5!
