No, I'm talking about another Oscar - my cat Oscar. Oscar de la Renta.
I just couldn't resist this title for my post today (for obvious reasons), but were it not for such a timely and clever coincidence, I would have entitled it "The $1000 Hair Ball". No kidding.
At the rate we're going, we may just be paying for a new wing at Tender Touch Animal Hospital.
But last week...
Bloodwork and exam $162
Procedure to extract one big honkin' hairball $600
A healthy kitty -- priceless.
I was so happy to come home from my last road trip to find he's back to his chipper cat self.
So, this was my most expensive fiber related expense ever (all at one time anyway)! And not even a sweater to show for it. I do actually save Oscar's fur from his combings for spinning, but this? Eeww.
Everyone has been so kind to send good wishes to Humphrey as he continues to recover from his torn ACL operation. No running or jumping yet, but just want you to know he's doing well.
