So here are the highlights from last week:
- the girls left for their forever home
- Kabaka, who had returned to his foster-soon-to-be-forever home, had his ear re-check. ALL CLEAR. WooHoo!
- I was called to jury duty. Not just regular jury duty, “special panel” jury duty. The good news? I was only there one day. (For regular duty, you show up on Monday and are either picked for a trial or stay in the pool until Friday!) The bad? If I’d been picked it was a murder trial and it would have taken at least three weeks. Fortunately I was rejected by the defense. (Funny aside; one of the first things the court services officer — who was shepherding us through the process — told us was to forget everything we’d seen on tv. Even if it’s accurate, we get mostly American crime television here and our system is based on the British system.)
- one of my foster homes, who was away, got in touch to say her catsitter had informed her that the cat was “very sick”. We got him in to one of the vet clinics (he was quite sick; bad URI, possibly from complications from dental work) and now he’s with me.
Mickey is very affectionate and hates being kept in the foster room. 😦 Also, Fudge seems to be in love with him! He (Fudge) has come waaaaay out of his shell since Mickey arrived and spends a lot of his time hanging outside the foster room. They both came from the last Quebec intake. We checked; the shelter insists they weren’t friends but I’m not convinced. It will be interesting to see what happens when Mickey’s allowed out.
