Bio: “IBM: The Next Generation”

I thought I’d start keeping track of the bios I use in presentations, hiding company-specific information as necessary. =)

Leia’s home!

Water: Drank a number of laps of water.
Food: Ate a third of an 85g can of Fancy Feast Turkey.

We took Leia home from the animal shelter today. She’s not yet officially ours–she needs to recover from her cold and then get spayed–but the technician at the shelter thought that Leia would do better in a home than in the sick bay at the shelter. Leia’s still sneezing, but she’s drinking water and eating food, and with the way she’s just taken to us and to her room, you’d think that she’s been here for a while.

So it turns out that she’s not shy or reserved after all. Instead of cowering underneath the bed, she’s reposing on the covers, purring and chirping like the contented cat she is. Both W- and I brought our laptops up to Leia’s room so that we could keep her company while she got to know us and her room, but it doesn’t look like she needs any adjustment time. She’s adopted us as her humans, and that’s that.

Oh, yeah, she’s found her forever home.

She still needs to follow her antibiotic regimen so that she can get over her cold and get ready for spaying. Daily medicine update to be posted starting tomorrow. W- is in charge of tomorrow morning’s dose. =)
