I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.
This is my summation of the past week:
Teddy will be serving double duty as my main image plus as my "T-Day
ticket" for my T-Day posts.
Teddy said we have to live vicariously through magazine images like the one he is posing with, because we still aren't dining out. Here in Connecticut (US), face masks are required, which we understand the requirement for, but that isn't our idea of a pleasant way to spend time inside a restaurant.
I'm happy to report that my cat continues to improve:
Which also brings up an "incident" that happened, that Teddy and I are in disagreement over what actually happened. Teddy claims that I almost let a Hawk carry him away while I was "busy" taking photos, and "not paying attention" to our surroundings. He said the aggressive stance taken by a group of Canadian Geese should have alerted me to Teddy's imminent danger from the incoming raptor, which landed on the nearby swing set:
I told Teddy that's not what I recall happening. When we got to the park, Teddy complained loudly that the swings had been removed from the swing set that he had posed on back in July 2019. Teddy refused to get out of the car and told me to leave the keys with him, while I got out to take photographs. When the Red-tailed Hawk landed, Teddy was safely inside the car with the windows rolled up, the radio and air conditioner blasting, and was never in any danger.
In weather news, despite the rain we got this past week, we are still in a D0 drought. 83.77% of Connecticut is now in a D0 or higher drought, when last week it was 62.41% of CT. (United States Drought Monitor - Connecticut) At least the rain we got was enough to revive my forsythia bushes (and other plants and trees).
I took this photograph of my cat while he was lounging. He continues to improve each day as he recovers from the major surgery
had on Thursday, June 11, 2020. He's doing well enough that I felt okay leaving him home alone for a short period of time while I went out to take photos. I still have him on restricted
activity, but he continues to become more active, so internally physically he is feeling less / no pain. If you look closely at the photo, you can see the bare area on
his left foreleg and on his belly, where his fur had been shaved for
the operation. It's slowly growing back now.
I'm relieved that he continues to improve each day.
