OK, maybe not without a few days of warm-up at my local humane society (if they’d ever consent to my volunteerism), but I’m pretty fast (if I do say so myself).

I was compelled to dwell on my cat neuter speed after reading about Dr. Randy Eisel of Naples, Florida. This vet is seeking a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records with his nimble fingers and altruistic intent to highlight the problem of pet overpopulation with some welcome publicity.

The cause needs all the help it can get. Perhaps a little friendly competition would help the PR machine get cranking into overdrive. Whaddaya say, Dr. Eisel? Can you beat a veteran speed knitter?
