Oh yeah, about the furball

Kristy of Eats, Shoots & Leaves! rightly noted that I forgot the most important part of the move. Marlowe is coming, and he will arrive in style at my parents' sometime in early December. No, seriously. They've filled the entire house with cat toys and scratching posts. There are litter boxes in the pristine hallways where show-wearing deviants cannot tread, and my mom bought freaking catnip bubbles. Honestly, I think he's the reason why they're letting me move home.

He made his first trip to Seattle last week and did quite well, then celebrated his excellent car manners by throwing up on my rug once we returned to Portland.

You need to know that the tortoise is very jealous!

Poor munch. If he just didn't have to take up so much horizontal space...sadly, there's nowhere I can put him down here or up in Seattle. I'm a little worried about that.

Oh, okay, good! I was worried there for a minute. Your parents sound like card-carrying cat people. Marlowe is a lucky man.

From what Ndugu was telling me, it sounds like he will take your room and that you and that "thing" can sleep in the kitchen so that you can prepare his meals at a minutes notice. Ndugu also asked me to send you a little reminder of what he can do to that "thing"
