The modem is fixed [replaced] but the cats are all sick and one of them is missing.
I'm hoping she's just hiding somewhere in the house, because between the hawks, the coyotes, animal control, the rain, and the cold front that is moving in this weekend, she doesn't stand much chance if she's managed to sneak out the front door. Just in case, I've made a fairly well-insulated little cave on the front porch and left out food and water, and the dog and I have been keeping our eyes peeled on our walks today.
Update: The Howard Hughes of chez hipparchia has been spotted and now all cats are present and accounted for. She wasn't sneezing, so maybe she's just avoiding everybody else's germs.
