Today's Friday flashback is from December 2006. I had forgotten Jim had taken these photos of Tucker. It was the Christmas he'd had pancreatitis. He was a very sick boy that month and spent weeks in the animal hospital. I will never forget that time, but I'm so thankful he pulled through.
In other news, my father-in-law is finally home from the hospital, after staying there 12 days. Sadly, they couldn't give a diagnosis, so they left there with few answers. My mom is slowly healing. Her wound is healing "ok," according to her surgeon.
Lastly, I'm going to borrow a live trap tonight from the local animal shelter and try to trap Graystripe for spaying/neutering next week (I still don't know his sex). They have an outdoor feral program and he will be altered, given a rabies shot, and have his one ear clipped (as a sign that he's been altered). I know some of you have done this before, but this is my first time, so I'd appreciate some purrs. Graystripe is an elusive cat, who won't be happy to be trapped, but it's for his/her own good, so it needs to be done, especially before the spring kitten season.
