Things Happening
So, it's started. People were called in today and given the news. My old group was cut to one, everyone else, including the manager, given notice. This on every floor. They say it will continue through the week, although I'd think most of it will be done by Wednesday. Many friends among those leaving. So far, nothing about us, people saying we'd taken our hit at the end of last year, but I'm wondering.

I think I committed myself to adopting another cat this afternoon. A black cat with green eyes in a house with two large Dobermans. A nervous cat in a house with two large Dobermans. I've thought about it. Wuss was a problem his last two years and my situation here, well, I don't know about my situation here and taking on a cat? I don't know. Still, once you got 'em, you got 'em, no turning back. Women you can lose for all kinds of silly reasons, but animals (along with children, I am informed) last forever.

Did I need her cat box and kitty litter and stuff? No, I still have all that, although I may replace the cat carrier. Wuss went to his end in the one still sitting in the trunk of my car, I haven't touched it. I just wonder if this new cat - odd thought, I know - but I wonder if this new cat would be able to sense it. Hell of an introduction to your new home in Oakland, bundled into a box in which you know another cat made his ride to oblivion.

Well, she'd be sure she got her shots and we'd do the transfer on a weekend. That would be good. Shots. Dobermans. Haunted cat carriers.

The firewall computer was waiting when I got home. Too tired to do more than pull it through the door and leave it sitting in the hall. A long day, today. Up early, too early, too many things happening.
