Distracted

We both had ideas and photos for a post here, but our attention has been distracted by an ailing kitty cat. We've had Bonsai for almost twelve years. He was a rescued stray with a lot of strange disabilities. Last week, though, we could discern among his quirky behaviors, seizures, and unsteady gait a whole new set of ailments. Bonsai is sick. We think he may have been eating some of the new green shoots of the native iris. Turns out those shoots are quite toxic to cats. Bonsai's behavior is an exact fit for the list of symptoms.
So, instead of a post about all the other things that could have been posted, here's a photo of the beautiful native iris.

  6. ¡Viva Senor Don Gato! How bizarre that those lovely etherial-looking flowers could be deadly. Glad to hear that Bonsai is well.
