Dopey went with my friend today. He hasn't owned a cat for almost a year, since his last one died. He finally understands that it's not doing his former cat a dishonor by owning another cat.
I think of all of them, I miss Dopey the most. He was always the one who got to me first, purred the loudest, and untied my shoes the fastest.
Still no luck in finding a program that will "fix and free" in this state. *sighs* If I take the cats in myself and pay for the proceedure, then by law in this state, they become "my" cats and I'm responsible for them. I'm not ready to take in an entire colony of stray cats. I can't afford it either.
Work went pretty good this afternoon. We were pretty quiet, but I made some darned good tips on the few people I did have, so I'm pleased. I like making good tips better than just making a lot of money by volume, for the fact that I get a good feeling when I get higher tips. It means I gave better service. Of course, it also means I had people that weren't cheap too.
I waited on one woman with the cutest little girl. She was just learning to walk and she kept standing by the table (not running around, just standing in one place) and laughing hysterically like everything was wonderful. We have a picture on the wall that someone has painted of supposed food we serve. It's hard to describe, but it does look like food, just not a very realistic portrayal of food. It's very brightly colored too. This little girl kept pointing to that picture and just laughing. I thought that was great. I'm not the greatest with babies and toddlers, I admit it, but it's really cool when you can see some kid getting a natural high off of a bad painting.
Only bad spot in today is my knee is acting up like crazy and I can feel water gathering in it. It isn't really bad now, but every time I feel it, the liquid has increased. I hope it doesn't swell up like it did a few years ago, that put me out of work for almost six months. I did take my medication for my knee and realized that the perscription expires on my birthday. I think I have one refill left on it though, I just hope refills don't have an expiration date.
So... it's good that the kittens have good homes. But I have to admit, I kinda miss them... okay, I really do miss them. Especially Dopey. He's a very cool kitten.
