Mini is still coming inside every night. He goes back out in the morning. Such a chill cat – he and Cisco are getting along just fine so far. Tomorrow (hopefully) he goes to the vet to get fixed. Wish us luck getting him into the carrier. Here he is making muffins on his color-coordinated fleece blanket:

Managed to balance four rocks on the kitchen windowsill. I can usually get three to last for a while, but with four, they fell as soon as we opened that window. The wind blew them down. But they stayed up for an hour or so!
