And today was the yearly check-up at the vet for the cats. Two good things happened. I had to wait a long time (because an emergency case came in) which meant Arun actually got tired of exploring the room and settled down (I didn't know that was possible) and they gave me a 10% discount! Anything that keeps the vet bill below $100 is grand by me!
Better than that, the vet gave Shado's heart murmur a rating of 4/5--the same as last year. So if it's gotten worse in the interval, it's imperceptible. Thank God for that!
