On the cat front, sadly, Tux came back to live here. A member of his new family developed severe allergies, so they made the sad decision to return him. He misses them, and they miss him. But he's making the best of it, and has declared the bathroom sink to be his. He is growing into a magnificent cat.
The morning routine here is not complete until the cats have helped me make the bed. Here, Sylvia, Tux and Scout lend a helping paw. At least, they think they're helping.
