Oscar turned 11 years old yesterday (April 11). He did not have a great day as we are having the outside of our house painted and he and I stayed in our fishbowl most of the day with all windows covered while two guys painted and made enough noise to freak him out. I felt so bad but figured he would be fine as this is only temporary. He got to walk around outside late yesterday and check out all the stuff in our side yard and had 1/2 a can of tuna for a birthday treat. Two windows remain taped till later today (Saturday). He finally realized that most windows are uncovered and has been patiently waiting this morning for our front window (his favorite spot to sit and watch the world go by) to be uncovered.
