I've been wanting to get on here and say I haven't done a single bit of stitching or worked on any minis since I mailed Kim her package of goodies.
Castor is slowing down more rapidly than before. His mobility has decreased quite a bit. He still eats, drinks, uses his box, and asks to go out into the sunshine though. And it seems he's quite taken with Artan.
The vet decided at this point it won't hurt Castor to be around him even though we can't test Artie for FIV and leukemia yet. In fact it seems to be helping, so he gets unrestricted access.
As for the rest of my time...
Artie is now quite mobile whenever he's not asleep. We have cordoned off rooms of the house, both upstairs and down, so he can have safe areas to run around in. Keeping him out of trouble has just become a full-time job!
Pollux is lamenting Artan's recent discovery of pouncing. FH laughing at him doesn't help matters.
Speaking of FH his grades were finally posted. He passed with A's in both classes, which means he officially has his master's degree in computer science. Life is more normal than it was before, even with Artie's addition to the household.
I'm going to try and get more mini time in as Artie gets weaned, but I may not have time for blogging. So here's hoping whenever I get back I'll have more pictures from both the Panda Nursery and (hopefully) Rose Cuttings!
