The new little kitty, "Pretty", the Siamese, still has to be kept away from the other cats until she has been checked out. Just to be on the safe side, I even put bleach in the dishes that have been used for her, and I have a separate litter scoop for her box. Feline Leukemia and FIV can be transferred by bodily fluids.
I have put Revolution on her so that she won't have fleas, mites, etc. She only weighs about 6 pounds, full grown, she is so skinny. I also de-wormed her with Strongid-T. Goodness knows what she picked up while roaming the streets looking for food after her people left her to fend for herself. It has taken a toll on her. Poor little Pretty.
Jay needed some diversion today, the day they 'pull the plug' on his father, and wanted to go thrift shopping. GelGloss fiberglass cleaner/polish was on my shopping list, and the cheapest place around here, is at the glass company, $4.00! So we headed for the next town.
We went to about three thrift shops. Jay bought a couple of shirts, and some big platters that his tortoise could bathe in. I actually found a new Emerson Switchboard, a new Kitchenaid saucepan, and a new smaller one by Bella Cuisine. I bought some matching little pink dishes for Pretty, the other cats have white ones, so I won't get them mixed up. We got several other handy little items, too.
I still had shellac and insulation that I had bought for the Coronado, so I returned them. While we were at Lowes, we spotted a linoleum remnant, that would be just great for the guest house, so I bought it. It is white with faint blue speckles, and so if there does have to be a seam, there won't be any waste from pattern matching. That is always a nuisance when doing wallpaper, too.
Just a quiet shopping day.
