the calico cat and the trash bag pup

We have a kitten and a puppy, there's no need for TV. Norah followed me home - well for at last 10 steps before I claimed her as my own. She was tiny, bedraggled with a huge hard belly. The first night she threw up and her puke squirmed with half a dozen spaghetti like worms. Horribly gross. She had her second dose of worm medication this morning and now looks positively svelte. Tita is our pup who was found in a garbage bag by the town petrol station. They are now fairly well adjusted and spend their days catching bugs and wrestling each other into frenzies of fur and spittle. It's actually wonderful entertainment.
