Sadly, we had to give Ninja, our loving and moderately disturbed cat, away today. Kitty has always been slightly allergic to Ninja, but since we came back to the fur- and dander-infested house after a week away, her allergies went into hyper mode. Add to that a week of flu/cold/ allegenic bronchitis/possible pneumonia and we had a perfect storm of misery and nebulizer treatments. So the choice was down to Ninja or my wife -- and, no, I did not say, "Let me think about it."
I'm a cat person and Kitty is a cat person. So, as a popular web site would have it: We has a sad.
