Well, Lilah has been sheared.
I did get her a t-shirt this time. It is one of those little newborn side-snap shirts. Works like a charm! She doesn't even seem to mind it, well, not in comparison to her misery over loosing her lovely fur anyway. 3.5oz of prime angora, plus the second cuts and the massive amount of fur from her underside that filled the dustpan to overflowing.
Also, I did forget (how, I don't know) to give the Jason update -- my other disappointing news of the week. His tour has been extended another 40 days, meaning he won't be home until mid-August. He is still healthy, tho, so your prayers and good vibes are working. Keep it up, please!
