Winston 2

The Friday Five for May 20, 2016

1. Can you remember the first book you read?
2. What was the last book (electronic or otherwise) you read?
3. Do you read for enjoyment, work or both?
4. What is your favorite genre of book to read?
5. If you could visit your younger self, what book would you tell yourself to steer clear

1. I really can't, although I remember reading 'The Five Little Peppers (and how they grew) at a pretty early age.
2. It was 'Looking for Mr. Goodwitch' - it was okay.
3. Mostly enjoyment.
4. Mystery/occult
5. 'The Da Vinci Code' - lots of folks thought it was great. I thought it was a major *yawn*

Sigh, I'm a little sad.

Illya came through the surgery just fine and got a clean bill of health. I went in and paid for the rest of his bill and then surrendered him to the vet. It was much harder than I thought it would be, but it was the right thing. If we'd brought him home, we'd have had to keep him locked up in the study. That would have made Titan crazy and would had led to more aggressive spraying (like he did with rummy). Plus Illya has ringworm and I would have had to fumigate the room afterwards.

Sadly, we aren't in a position to adopt him and I didn't want to see him back on the streets. The vet works with a group of no-kill shelters and this way he has a chance to find a good home, a forever home. It's what he deserves.

I know I did the right thing, but all I want to do right now is cry...
