The Cats come back

I put shelves up in my office today. I went to Home Depot, bought some nice planks of pine and some brackets, sandpaper, etc, and after a little work, I have a couple of nice shelves in my office. Somewhere to put my bookshelf speakers, among other things.

We picked the cats up from the kennel today. Kami yelled all the way back home, Karma said nothing at all.

Kami is fine, Karma is a bit worse for wear - he has some scabs around his neck that I suspect are self inflicted, either from heat or boredom or both. Both cats have explored the house thoroughly, and Karma is now lying on the floor behind some boxes in my office. Kami is still exploring.
