Only two more mornings of Putter waking up the family in an effort to get his breakfast. His new owner picks him up on Sunday. That afternoon, we’re going to start the tedious process of eliminating any cat residue from the apartment, just another step in our battle against Mathias’ respiratory problems.
Am I going to miss our cat? Heck yes. Putter has a long track record of driving Lisa up the wall, but it’s pretty clear she’s going to miss him, too. There’s comfort in the fact Putter is going to a rabid cat person, someone who has cat-sit for him in the past, and who actually currently does cat sitting for a living. There’s some concern Putter may have trouble adjusting to a house with other cats in it, not to mention the fact he’s on a special diet, but it sounds like his new owner has some creative ideas for dealing with those issues. If worse comes to worse, we can help find him another home somewhere else.
Next weekend, it’ll be the guinea pigs’ turn, as they relocate to Northeastern Wisconsin.

Other than that, life is the typical: Busy. Depending on the weather this weekend, we may or may not be hitting the Minneapolis farmer’s market. The same goes for Grand Old Days. Priority will be given to cleaning and decluttering, though. We’ll have family in town in a few weeks for Mathias’ second birthday, and this will be the only weekend to clean up post-Putter.
Between yoga class for Lisa, swimming and music classes for Mathias, and my sudden urge to bike all over the Twin Cities, it’s safe to say we’re a pretty busy family. Next weekend, we’ll be in Green Bay. The weekend after that, it’s Mathias’ birthday, and my mom will be in town. And on Father’s Day, I’m off to India for the third time this year.
Life is interesting.
