    Explored! #3

    There might not be any benefit to seeing this bigger, but why take chances? (I don't know what that means ;-))

    So... last night Felix got out of the house. Like I've said before, he's an outdoorsman. He has been desperate to get outside since we brought him home. We've been very careful to watch him and make sure that he was nowhere near the door so that he didn't get out... until last night.

    I was cleaning his litter box last night and last time I saw him, he was in his bed in the laundry room, but as soon as I opened the door to take the litter out... well, let's just say that I've NEVER seen him run like that before... and on only three good legs.

    I chased him across the neighborhood until I lost him in the dark.

    It mad me pretty sick to know that we spent all that money and now he might be undoing to good that the vet did. I stayed out for a bit looking for him but eventually headed off to bed.

    This morning I got up and began the search for him. After a while I heard some movement from a water drainage catch basin and sure enough... there he was. We played a game of hide and go seek between catch basins where I had to pull the lid and actually get down in there, but finally I caught him and hauled him back off to the laundry room. Needless to say I was pretty worn out.

    Tonight we watched L.A. Confidential. I don't think I've seen it since the first time it came out. I forgot just how good that movie was.

      A powerful image and a evocative image to accompany my post "Why Johnny Can't Search" - (and why schools are to blame)
