A local woman has been found to have 20 live cats/dogs/birds/small mammals and 30 dead. The neighbors say there's been a stench for months, but nobody called until earlier this week. She did this about five years ago and promised to never have pets again, so I hope the judge requires random inspections. I'm very fond of cats, but I know how many I can handle.

Spirit and I watched the Kennedy Center Honors last night. I expected I'd like the Brubeck and Springsteen sections, but the Mel Brooks section was small musical bits from his shows and that was good, too.

I took the trash and recycling out today, then took the coins from the full bowl to have the credit union run them through the machine and put them in my account.

I've needed a .pdf reader that's small and free, and I got Sumatra which took 30 minutes to print one page. I deleted that and got Foxit, which is a bit larger (5.1 vs. 1.2) but prints immediately.

The after-5pm forecasts say we'll have 1-3 inches of ice and snow tomorrow, and I didn't get to cancel my rheumatology appointment because they close at 5pm. I can do it online, but I'd like to set up a new one at the same time, and I need the assistant for that.

There was a case of a woman like that in Petaluma a few years ago. There, the woman rented a house the keep the cats in and drove up from SF regularly to feed them. Didn't work well and it was very much not pretty. Apparently, it's a mental illness of some kind and I think she was required to undergo treatment. I don't remember whether the house had to be torn down or condemned.
More snow, huh? Hope it's not too much of an inconvenience. It's cold here - for CA standards.

And it's mostly women who have it, so there must be some genetic indication.

The ice was not as bad as predicted and has melted now so I'm going to leave in a bit for my appointment. We get rain and snow tomorrow, supposedly, but I'm not planning on going anywhere then!
