It’s getting to be the spooky season and this example of one of the wild pets around here crept into view on the CCTV last night…

This got me wondering…It would make for a rather cool Halloween party game to tell ghost stories using only your goTenna Meshes.
UPDATE, January 25, 2019: for a more cuddly pet…
In the depths of the Midwest winter, sometimes you just want to be close to the ones you love. That goes even if they have a drinking problem, errr, it’s really more of an attempting to drink problem…
Feb. 8 Update:
Mr. C is feeling a little under the weather and it’s not just that Polar Vortex. He somehow came down with something called a hematoma. It was a good example why you want to watch your pets and, well, pet them regularly. Maiko found an odd swelling at the inside base of his upper ear on Sunday. It was already getting larger on Monday when we took him to the vet’s and scheduled surgery for Thursday. By Wednesday night, Mr. C was really suffering as his ear swelled up like a fat tick.
We’re not sure how it happened, as there was no signs of an injury, a common cause. Sometime high blood pressure will cause it. What happens is that the ear fills up with blood. You can’t just drain it, as it would simply refill. The vet has to sew the skin of the ear to the cartilage on the lower side. This way the ear will heal and look normally instead of turning into a “cauliflower ear” like boxer’s used to get before headgear became required.
We’ll stick to a family friendly pic here. While the ear top side isn’t pierced, it does get puckered up in the process.
The worst part now is the collar, which he has to wear for the next 3 weeks or so. He’s doing OK, but please send any spare thoughts and good vibrations his way. He gets lots of hugs here, especially right now, but he’s pretty bummed about that collar.
