I’m ill today. Not sure what the problem is… It feels like it may be the beginnings of flu but I’m not certain. I really hope it isn’t.
In any case I am lacking the energy to write a proper blog post so I am falling back to my old standard of posting a cat picture. (Even though it feels wrong to do so, because I need my cat pictures for when I post on Katzenworld!)
