Home Safe Home?

Few places in this world are more dangerous than home.  Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes.  They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.  
~ John Muir

In an apparent attempt to upstage me and my gall bladder surgery, Popeye took a turn for the worse and had to go back to the veterinary hospital over the weekend.  

An ultrasound revealed a foreign object blocking his small intestines.  

Surgery revealed the nature of the foreign object:  

Never doubt the strength of this stuff...  :(

He lost 6 inches of his small intestines, but it appears that the surgery was a success and we are all cautiously optimistic that we are going to have many years of keeping Popeye, now the most expensive cat in the world, away from my sewing room.  

Poor little buddy...  I would have just given him the spotlight - he didn't have to work so hard to get it...  :(
