Peski gradually mellowed out last night and she seems back to normal for now. So it wouldn't have done any good to get her to the vet today as she said Peski will need to be in heat for them to do it and verify they got it all. So I'll just have to wait until it happens again.

The pisser is that both these problems were unexpected because surprise surprise the dealer lied about the tires and parking brake. And of course the dealer is unwilling to refund even a dime to make good on any of it.  But I guess it could have had much worse problems. The inspector actually thought it was in pretty damn good shape otherwise,
And here they almost always come up with at least $60 in wiper blades and light bulbs that you didn't know you needed.

Are there so many cops in Virginia with nothing better to do than pull you over to check the tread depth of your tires that you can't make the occasional trip to the vet or grocery store at less than highway speeds?

Yes but I cant drive it because it needs tires and the parking brake fixed in order to pass VA safety inspection. The cheapest tires I can find for it start at $550. Even used tires for it on Fleabay are almost as much as new with shipping and nobody has any used one locally. It's a fairly odd sized tire. And I have no money. Even when I get my next SSD check 8/3 it won't be enough for tires after I pay the mortgage, utilities etc.
The dealer I got the car from in RI told me it had "Like New" tires on it and failed to meantion the b'jorked parking brake. And it just passed safety inspection in RI back in June, They must do their inspections blindfolded.

Its about 30 minutes away so it wouldn't be cheap and I have no money right now, and I mean none. Dont get my next SSD check until 8/3. I habe been borrowing a friends work van but it has a bad transmission and wont go past about 40mph and I'd worry about it croaking completely on the way there. (which is why he isn't using it). It gets me around town for Doc appointments and shopping though. The vet said she would ask her employees that live out this way if one of them can pick her up in the next couple of days. She said she has to still be in heat when they do the surgery so they can do a blood test afterwards to make sure the hormone level is gone. So if she goes out of heat in the meantime I have to wait until she is in heat again for the surgery. And she does seem to be mellowing out somewhat today so it may be to late already for this time. They average 5-7 days in heat.

Every morning rain or shine the cats start pestering me at first light which of course is before the alarm goes off. Its usually because they want out. I don'tlet them out at night so by morning they are always antsy. But they both handle going out differently. Peski runs at high speed out the door the instant its being open like "Oh boy I'm free!", Squeaky on the other paw waits until the door is fully open, then slowly gets up, stretches and then walks slowly to the open door and then sits in the opening and thinks about it for 5 minutes before he leaves. That is if I don't push him out the rest of the way first.
And now Peski has decided its fun to meow at a door and then when I let her in she goes right to a different door without stopping for food or anything and wants right back out. Then 5 minutes later she is at another door meowing again. Bored car syndrome I guess. My first Russian Blue used to do that also.

Fred the kitty.Fred

From a couple years ago. Fred is an odd-eyed cat, as you can see, and he is just plain odd. Thinks he is a dog. We used to let him roam our 'burb neighborhood, but have had to keep him indise due to tangling with feral cats. We would often get calls from our neighbors that our cat was their house playing with their humans and/or pets, but he would always come back home, except for those couple times he jumped in someones vehicle. He would walk with the dogs around the neighborhood and there was always people who would come out to greet him (not our dogs). He escapes on occasion, but we just drive the block, spot him and open car door. He always gets in.walk
His preferred mode of transport.
