Pax is sending her love to you on this ! Her surgery went well, she seems to be recuperating nicely, and she doesn't mind having to wear her post-surgical skirt.
The housing crisis has created cat crisis landlords are declaring their buildings pet-free as a way to get around rent caps and renoviction rules

Pax wants to say "thank you" to all of you who wished her well. Her surgery is over and she seems to be doing fine.
She likes her post-surgical skirt (rather than the dreaded cone of shame)! Good night (or good day) everyone!
my sister's cat has turned into a box.
This is Pax wearing her post-surgery skirt. So far I am really loving it! Works well! It attaches to her collar.

Happy Birthday to Pennys older half sister Millie!
Happy Tuesday to you all!
I must say that today is not an especially happy day for little Pax. It's the day she gets spayed. We dropped her off at the vet's early this morning. Hopefully all will go well and we'll be able to pick her up in the late afternoon.

My dad was very into , so over the weekend I picked up one of his cameras and some lenses so I can work on getting much better than my phone can take. I got this one of Phoebe while messing around with it, and it's amazing to see the detail of her fur without all of the post-processing magic blurring it.
Sure, why don't you both come and sit on my Wonder Woman tank top that I'm trying to fix, it's not like there's a readily available cushion 5 centimeters away. :BlobCatuwu:

Pets are wrong.
I dont mean that pets hold wrong , of course: I mean that the idea of keeping small animals around for fun is a mistake.
Let me refine that: keeping in urban environments is almost always wrong.
Exceptions I understand: guide dogs and the like pets for lonely people who really cant find friends or caregivers purely rural environments.

An abused stray mutt kept trying to move himself into a senior care facility. 3X!
But a few nights later, there was Scout, back on that same couch in the nursing home lobby. Somehow he again scaled a 10-foot chain-link fence, then a 6-foot solid privacy fence, crossed a highway without getting run over, entered the front door unnoticed, jumped onto the same couch as before and made himself at home for the night.
Invasive species such as feral cats are the number-one driver of biodiversity loss in Australia, UN report shows
"Australia is the mammal extinction capital of the world and cats have played a role in two-thirds of mammal extinctions over the last 200 years"
"Every year, cats kill 2 billion reptiles, birds and mammals in Australia. That's almost 6 million every night."
"Australia has close to 3,000 invasive alien species estimated to cost Australia approximately $25 billion every year in losses to agriculture and management costs," CSIRO chief research scientist for biosecurity Andy Sheppard said."
The report "found 45 per cent of all countries did not invest in the management of biological invasions and only 17 per cent had national laws or regulations addressing the problem".
