I bought new collars for all of the cats today (except Little Brother, bottom right, who wears a harness; I just bought him a bell). They all have bells. The house is now a symphony of tinkling.
And grumbling, as they run around trying to shake them off. I predict that I'll find at least two that have been magically slipped, within the week.
Thank you guys so much for the hugs and well-wishes; maeyan and I both appreciate them mightily, despite the part where answering them individually is probably, for the sake of sanity and not having to keep re-cleaning my glasses, not going to happen. ♥
