New adventures in unemployment! Since I'm now mostly at home during the day, I volunteered when someone in the building asked if anyone could check in on her post-surgery cats during the day. I figured, what the heck - I like her, and I like cats, even if they make me sick. It turns out to be kind of fun. The post-surgery cat is listless and doesn't really care if I pick her up and turn her over, which is good, since I'm supposed to be checking her staples. And the other cat is like, "OHMYGOD YOU HAVE HANDS YOU MUST USE THEM TO PET ME" which is kind of endearing. It's not a bad mid-afternoon break.
The friendly cat even makes me almost want a pet, although the cat hair that is all over me when I return to my apartment makes me reconsider. Also, there's the whole allergy thing.
Interesting fact: Post-surgery cat's health problem was more or less what my dad had last week.
