And everyone is just fine. As you can all see for yourselves.
Ripley grew while I was away. A bunch!
Maddie is bigger too, and her tail is more outrageous than ever.
Neither of them are mad at all, though Ripley is being pretty clingy. She won't let me out of her sight. They're both glad I'm home, even if I am tired and cranky. The kittens were in excellent hands while I was gone. My upstairs neighbor and his girlfriend are good friends, and cat lovers. They came in twice a day and played with them, gave them many scritches, and made sure their kitten tummies were full.
I had a miserable flight home. First my flight was delayed because of weather, and then we sat on the runway for a hour. When I got to Austin my car was dead. Again. Tried to jump it. Nothing. By this time it's 2:00 am. I had to take the shuttle back to the airport and get a cab home. Feh.
The dealer towed my car this morning and hopefully they'll fix it right this time. And yes, they paid for the tow and are reimbursing me for the cab ride.
New York pics later.
