Washburne Van Gogh

Behold, our new kitty.

Washburne - from the Firefly character, because of his friendly demeanor.

Van Gogh - after Vincent Van Gogh. His left ear had mites which cut off some blood vessels, preventing it from growing properly.

Wash is about three years old. He was abandoned by a previous owner. Another couple had found him in their back yard and fed him for a little while, but as they had two cats (and a third that recently died of cancer), they weren't ready to take him in. So they talked to their friends, and their friends work with my friends, who knew we are very kitty friendly. The couple has paid for all of his shots and other medicine. We have to wait a few weeks before taking him in for the Big Snip.

Wash has kitty HIV. It's not a big deal for cats as it is in humans. But if we adopt another cat while we have Wash, it should already have HIV, otherwise Wash will infect it.

We've had him for two hours now. He's making himself comfortable on the couch, sleeping next to me.

Table giveaway

I've had this table since I first moved to Astoria, and it has served me well. It's bade of a ballistic textured plastic and can hold up to 400 lbs. Six feet long, 30 inches deep, and 30 inches tall. It locks into position when unfolded. Each half has a handle so it stays closed when you're carrying it.

The table is now redundant in this apartment. Jillian doesn't want it around, and I don't want to throw it out. I paid $80 for it six years ago, and there's nothing wrong with it.

If anyone is interested in taking it (or know someone who would), please let me know. Otherwise, it goes on Craigslist.
