It rained Friday – remnants of Gustav? It was fairly clear on Saturday, after weather reports suggesting it would rain. It then rained steadily most of the night.
Our long-haired cat, Marlowe, came in and I cut yet another burr out of her fur – this time only by wrapping her head in a towel so she wouldn’t snap at me. She felt better afterwards but came back in with several more burrs in her stomach fur. This time she let me cut them out and brush her for a long time. I kept finding more. In the end she seemed much more at ease and let me brush her for a long time. Then she slept on the bed all day for the second day in a row.
It’s been raining again today. I believe it’s the remnants of Hanna, centred on the Atlantic Coast.
