Odessa has been throwing a holy tantrum since we found her last night.
Usually a sound daylight sleeper, she was awake when Louie came home for
lunch, prowling about the computer room, knocking books off the shelves,
tearing up the bed, and saying very unprintable things. She's been
snotty since we found her under the dresser last night, and Louie
figured she might need another couple of days sequestered, and a more

idea of how and where to find her. And he also apologized for making
cracks about irresposnsibility. He's one of those who, when panicky, is
not happy until everyone else around him is freaked out too.
