See that lump about halfway down Andy’s right side, right behind the big skin fold? It’s a benign lipoma. The lion cut exposed how big it had become.
For those unfamiliar with lipomas, here’s a description: “Benign tumors of fat, formed between the skin and the underlying muscle. Lipomas can grow anywhere in the body where fat cells are present.” Older cats, as I understand it, oftentimes form these. Lucky Andy. He’s one of the older cats that formed a lipoma.
I talked with Andy’s veterinarian yesterday about my concerns putting a 10-1/2- year-old Persian kitty under for surgery and the other concern, cost to do. He assured me blood tests would be done to establish his suitability for surgery. The lipoma doesn’t cause him any discomfort. The surgery, then, is more about aesthetics, an elective one. As for cost, they have a payment plan, which assures me it will be expensive! He asked me to plan for some time in February for the surgery.
The UPS guy delivered two Roku television remotes yesterday around noon.
One went in the remote bin where infrequently used remotes are stored.
One will be used regularly, so will end up on the floor next to the round end table, the same place my laptop and laptop mouse are.
I could watch all of the programs I usually do by streaming them on my laptop during the remoteness time, but it’s much nicer watching them on my Roku television. The image is much larger on the television, I don’t have the weight and heat of the laptop on my lap, and I have more volume control available on the television than on the laptop.
Yes, the Roku television remote that came with the television still is missing! It is the exactly like those seen in the photos. If it eventually shows up, I’ll put it in the remote bin, giving me three remotes to misplace! LOL!
