Coming Home

Mitch arrived home today from NYC. I drove three kids under 3 years old to the airport to get him (not all mine -- today is a baby-sitting day for me). They were all content listening to Veggie Tales! I was amazed.

Around 5:00PMish Mitch asked about the cat. I had given up hope and had not planned on calling that excuse for an animal shelter again. But just to assuage his concern, I called. And cat #A284111 -- WAS READY FOR ADOPTION!!! I tore down there (while Mitch headed to Small Group in a borrowed car), paid the fee, and our little guy is sleeping in the clinic tonight waiting to be fixed tomorrow. He comes home tomorrow evening.

Here is the kicker: we called a low-cost spay/neuter place when he first showed up and the cost just for the neuter was $50. The emergency hospital wanted $80 just for a vet to look at him. Tonight I paid $75 and we get a neutered cat with all his shots, plus an activated microchip (in case he gets lost), and two 5 lb bags of cat food! It worked out well, but I would have happily paid more money for peace of mind these past few days.

5 Thoughts From Others:

As Matt was waking up at 5am I told him you got BJ last night, but he was getting fixed before you took him home. Matt said, "Oh."

I tried to continued the story with, "Cammie took Ella to the animal shelter with her," and Matt asked, "Is she getting fixed too?"
