I got a lot of mental baggage shifted into better carrying shape and came home in a better frame of mind then I have been in in ages.
And the silly cat shadowed me around the house for the first two days trying to hop up on me whenever I stood still for more than a second, lol. (Come to think of it so did both kids and my wife.:p) He's in great shape for all that he went through. He had lost half his body weight and gotten cut up in a scrap or two with other beasties when he was missing.
