Sassafras is running around the house this morning -- I think she has lost her mind! She starts running in the kitchen on the linoleum flooring and can't get any traction. She looks like a cat from the cartoons... just running in place with a wild look on her face. It took her a while to feel comfortable in our house (she is scared of everything and everybody) but now she seems extremely happy to have more room. She also enjoys the windows. There is a large bay window in the living room that has a ledge she can sit on. In the back we have a glass sliding door that gives her a perfect view of everything out back.
She isn't quite sure what to think of the turkeys that frequent the back yard, but she likes to watch them. In the photo below, I was trying to get her to look at the turkeys (you can see them as little grey out of focus blobs at the top) but she just wanted to roll over on her back and look cute. Although this photo really shows off how fat she is, I thought it was adorable. Silly cat!
On a more serious note, I spoke with my Dad last night. He was very tired but said he wasn't in any pain. He understood that I couldn't be there (I have a very bad cold right now and can't chance infecting him). It was good to talk to him. Thank you for keeping him in your prayers. There is a long road ahead toward recovery and good health.
