The trip to Philly is a little over a week away! Crap. And I remembered I forgot to order the tickets for the Tippler Tour. Must do that today. Also need to put together we need for Sparrow for Jen's house while we're gone. We're driving the cat up to Fremont since we don't know anyone here that can look after her while we're gone.

Speaking of cats... talked to mum, and they've taken in another stray. Father found him at the market. He was skin and bones and the side of his face was black and he couldn't even meow. They took him to the vet, and she said he was clipped by a car and the inside of his face was all infected from the blow. He couldn't eat because of the damage. So she gave him antibiotics and vitamins and said he's around ten but in very good shape considering. Mum says he's starved for affection too. They're keeping him in the back bathroom for now, till he's stronger, and when they go visit, he climbs into their lap and promptly falls asleep. He's already put on weight and started meowing a few days ago.

No way! I'll be here while you're in Philly!

What day are you coming and going home? Maybe I can sneak up there one evening to meet you guys.

I'm waiting to finalize plans with a friend from NJ. I don't know which day we're seeing her right now.

We get in Wednesday dinner time. Thursday is a free day, Fri/Sat/Sun is con stuff, we go home Monday.

Registration is at 4 pm, so you're on your own until then. The Meet and Greet starts at 7:30-8, so you've got time for dinner.

Yeah, but I feel bad having someone truck all the way there and then tell them, sorry, I'm ditching you at 7pm :)

Awwww. That stray kitty is very fortunate indeed! ::hugs to your family for taking him in::

This is the third one from the area. Little Sinclair didn't make it. He died a few months after I rescued him. Willow was number two, and I think she's about a year old now. She's a little terror :)

That is one lucky cat. I'm glad it's got a happy home now.
Ithithildyn on August 27th, 2007 11:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, he probably wouldn't have lasted much longer.

I am so going to be busy all week before Philly. Hope I remember everything I need.

What a lucky little cat to find your Dad. And how wonderful of your parents to take the poor thing in.
