My laptop screen got all wonky. Having a big bar in the middle of the screen that blocks everything is very annoying! So after some research, I figured I would try to replace the display screen. The trickiest part would be to remove the thin piece of glass without breaking it. The YouTube video made it look so easy. So, I decided to give it a go and how did it go? Well this picture tells the story...
So much for easy! After picking off all the shattered glass, I managed to replace the display screen and am now using it sans-glass! The new screen works great. When the new glass I ordered from Amazon.com arrives on Saturday, I'll install it and all will be good as new for a fraction of the cost.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday I brought Oliver to the vet for his annual inspection and shots.
He was not a fan of my idea and fired up his lasers.
I've been growing more concerned about his over-grooming. The fur between his back legs has been over groomed for years and now he's starting to remove the fur from his sides too. I don't know why he's doing this and the vet didn't really know either. They tested him for fleas and he had none (Yea!) We ruled out mites because the other outdoor cats would be suffering from them too.
We are going to start by removing fish from his diet. The vet said the most common food allergy problem in cats is fish. Seems like a good place to start. Anyone know of any causes for a cat to groom off their furs?
