I slept 8.5 hours last night and 9 hours the night before. I had a pretty crazy 10 days. Air conditioning died, was replaced, my cat got out and spent two nights outside before I caught her. Did my first air travel since the pandemic to steamy Washington DC, flew home on 4 hours of sleep to get ready for a triathlon the next day.

I caught my cat with a live trap because she wouldn't let me within ten feet of her. As soon as she was inside she let me pet her, of course. She was as much as four houses away when I was trying to catch her, and I'm very impressed she made it back home on her own. I did all the classic tricks of putting food, litter box, clothes, and her blanket outside to smell. I even took her brother out on a leash. I got her the first night the trap was out.

And now her brother learned he likes going outside and sits by the door waiting for me to take him out.
