Back from the vets

March 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on Back from the vets · Life

Chiquita had her long-awaited visit to the vets to get spayed yesterday and returned with a huge shaved patch and a buster collar to stop her ripping the stitches out. She is not impressed with the collar. Advice from the vets included a remark that the cat could be drowsy for a few days as […]

Obligatory cat photos

March 4th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Life

I spend a lot of time amusing and being amused by Chiquita, but hardly any time taking cat photos. I tried to make amends a little on Monday while I was taking a day off work.

Turning the tables on the kitten

February 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on Turning the tables on the kitten · Life

Over the last couple of weeks we have been reminded that kittens are a force of nature, but tonight Chiquita had a break from terrorising us as she learned that there is an even greater force of nature, which also comes on four legs – Jayne’s friend came round with her twin 8-year-old girls…  I […]

Cat Chaos

February 1st, 2010 · 3 Comments · Life

So.  The first day that Chiquita was left alone all day and she trashed the front room a bit.  At the moment we can’t let her out (a bit young, not had her jabs, paranoid about cars and wrapping her in cotton wool etc.)  It was not supposed to be like this: it was supposed […]

More bad cat news

January 30th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Life

Today has been a very sad and depressing one, as it saw us lose our second cat in just over a week, but this time it was totally unexpected.

Welcome to the family

January 25th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Life

Funny how these things happen.  Jayne went to a party on Saturday night and one of her sister’s friends was saying how she had a kitten they couldn’t keep any more…   Seems that they already had a dog, the kitten’s mother and the kitten’s older brother.  When the cat had a litter they were persuaded […]

No more pets

January 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Life

We decided a while a go that, for various reasons,  we would not have any more pets. After Ziggy died we weakened a little bit and so Rojo joined the family, but that was a momentary lapse of reason – somebody we knew had kittens who needed a home, we had a home… it seemed […]

Decorating the cats

December 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Decorating the cats · Life

Getting the car moving again coincided with Jayne getting paid, so today saw one or two rash purchases in town while I was working, leading to an entertaining few minutes at home this evening as we tried to get Scar and Rojo to model their new scarf and santa hat.

Ferrets

August 3rd, 2009 · Comments Off on Ferrets · Life

We are toying with the idea of getting a pet ferret after seeing a bloke taking his ferrets for a walk in Croydon at the weekend.  They appear to be adorable, affectionate and entertaining but really I know nothing about them. Specifically I don’t know how well they get on with cats.  Anybody got any […]

Copycat

May 16th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Life

Rojo is avoiding us a bit at the moment.  Earlier on today we noticed a lump at the base of his tail and rushed him to the vets, where we were told he had an abcess there.  Now I know what that is like – although I didn’t get mine from fighting in the streets.  […]
