in which the humans are way outnumbered

Household population

Canines: two
Felines: four
Humans: two

Do you remember the black and white cat that has showed up a few times? We've seen him around but never able to get near him. However, this morning, Oscar found him under a car, mewling loudly. He was had been injured and had a terrible gash at the base of his tail, so Oscar took him to the vet. We don't know if he's a stray but he's skinny and kind of scraggly so even if he has a "home", he is probably outdoors only because he certainly has the look of a street cat. But he is super sweet. The vet had a hard time hearing his heartbeat because he was purring so loudly. 

So now he's here, recuperating (and pissing Sasha off with his mere presence). He doesn't like to be held but he loves to sit on laps and be petted. And he loves to be around people. He gets lonely and starts complaining when he is left alone.

Poor kitty baby. Glad that he let you guys get him and take him to the vet. Just need stitches?

I'm making cherry/everclear, with a previous batch of cherries... that batch is all for juice. I'll bring you a sample when it's ready.
