Jussi had a difficult time for a week or so – he developed an inflammation in the lining of his bowel, but it has healed now, and he’s quite returned to his old self. Life in the cat shelter and before was hard, and he didn’t get much of a diet there. The food I was giving him was too rich. Now after a couple of visits to the vet he’s on dried food and water, and is doing much better.
RFE/RL notes that if the European Court of Human Rights at Strasbourg agrees with the complaint now being brought by the Litvinenko family, Russia could face expulsion from the Council of Europe.
