We took the cats in for their annual indignities, which always requires gassing Peaches down in a Tupperware box. As if that weren't enough, her paws are too dark for the heart monitor clip to read accurately - so they got creative and hooked it up to her nub instead.
The Parable of the Peach thus teaches us two lessons:
1. Use your damage to your advantage - every chance you get
and 2. Be grateful for any day that doesn't involve having a jumper cable clamped to your ass!
