Just so you guys know, I did not in fact drop off of the face of the Earth. I've been working a series of nine hour days so that I can take time off for my wedding without losing money. I have a couple of books almost finished and ready to be reviewed, so look forward to that!
In the mean time, may I present my kitty:
This is Max. He is the maximum concentration of cat allowed by law. He is three months old, he is small, and he is fuzzy. He's kind of penguin colored. He and his sister were abandoned on an acquaintance's doorstep in a cardboard box. She took them in, of course, but needed homes for them, because she already has a cat of her own. His sister was adopted right away, but Max lingered awhile. The other cat started getting territorial, and she was alarmed. So we rescued him.
Incidentally, this is the second time this particular woman has ended up taking in a group of orphaned kittens. There are a lot of strays in our area, and it's just terribly sad. So here's the deal, people: spay or neuter your pets. It's for the greater good. Seriously. And that's my PSA for the week.
