I have an answer to the issue I discussed in my previous post (I was worried about how my cat, Shadow, would react to a smoke-alarm inspector when I was away). The answer: friends. Isaac ( ) has been kind enough to offer to be there during the inspection. Isaac is a cat person, has dealt with Shadow before, and can act a buffer if needed.
Now I can move on to the next thing: planning for my class at Free Spirit. I’ve got a whole bunch of ideas, but I want to organize them into some coherent form.
