Nearly everyone in our little hamlet, it seems, fell victim to the virus? flu? making its rounds over the long Christmas weekend. It was a nasty siege. We’ll blame the Grinch.
Luckily, everything I’ve read suggests cats don’t usually catch such nefarious bugs from their owners, which is a big relief. I’d hate to have Abishag and Ira miserably shuffling around in little robes and slippers, querulously demanding tea and toast because they’d caught something from me.
A happier and much healthier New Year, everyone.
