In other news, Red ( the shop cat) seems to have come down with a minor ( hopefully) case of gingivitis. He has been having trouble eating lately and his gums are swollen and red on one side of his mouth. It obviously hurts him. I'm hoping that it is not to serious, and from what we have read on line, it seems rather common. ( though, new to us!) Well, I hate to see my big cuddly suffer so hopefully we can get an appointment and get him back on the" road to Wellville."
