Regretfully I must note the passage of Katrina (the Cat of cats). After 14 years on this earthly plane she departed to an alternate realm. I was blessed to have her company for 10 years.
Coming home to an empty apartment has been heart wrenching. Yet I can not envision bringing home another cat any time soon.
On a completely different front I have submitted an application an have been interviewed for a position with HPL's cataloging department. Given the general pace of city actions I do not expect to have any news for about 2 to 3 weeks. It would be nice though as I would not have to work evenings or Saturdays and only the occasional reference shift. No increase in salary, it would be a lateral transfer.
