I took my cat Bauer to the vet yesterday for her yearly checkup. Overall she's doing really well. The vet said she could stand to lose a pound or two, but I'm definitely not worried about that. Apparently her fur is greasy, too, because she doesn't groom herself very well. I didn't know a cat's hair could get greasy.
Anyway, since I am leaving in 39 days for the great country of Moldova, obviously someone has to take my cats while I am away. Marc, who is a friend of mine, is taking the cats. He has taken care of them for a while (they are half his anyway; we used to live together) so he will be a good dad for them.
While we were checking Bauer in, we had to change their owner information from my info to his. This was extremely sad. Now, I've known for a while that I'm going to have to make many sacrifices while I am in the Peace Corps, but this one is the first and it hit me hard. Changing Bauer and Jack's owner from my name to Marc's name sucked.
I know he will take good care of them, but I already miss them.
