A Disappointment

Did I hear something up there?

Girl Power

.

There is an evil intruder sitting on a pillar in our neighbour's garden.
.

.

His name is Minty because his eyes are very green - he is an ex-stray kitty and likes to think he is the local "tough guy".
.

.

Hannah had seen him off from our garage roof and growled and spitted at him. She doesn't stand any nonsense.
.

.
Now she's in charge of the pillar and is watching him slink away.
.
My sisfur is very brave.

.

Monday Morning

.

Here we are checking to see if there are any signs of an intruder cat and I am looking
over the fence
.




.

We can't see Reuben (he lives next door) but he is quite old and stays in bed late in the mornings
.


.

Hannah is going to go and climb up onto the roof so she can get a good view all round and see if there's anything exciting to see.
.


.

Hang on a minute Hannah mum's just shouted that breakfast's ready.
.



.
She's on her way down off the fence now - sorry we can't stop to gossip now cos it's nom time.

.

I'm sure this is where the intruder came up Hannah - I bet they climbed this tree.

We'd better start a lookout rota Lucy

Good idea Hannah we'll sort out a rota now.

Wait a minute was that mum shouting us for brekkie - let's go in

We'll be able to think better on full tummies.

Watching for Intruders

I'm sure some strange cat has been up on our garage roof Lucy.
.

.


What do you think?

.


I'm certain you're right Hannah - there are strange paw prints along here.

.


We'd better both keep a look out.

Livestrong Day - In Memory of Olga and Maxie

.

This post today is in three parts - the first one to think of everyone who is affected by someone who either has cancer or has sadly lost their fight against it.

.


.

The second one is for my Mum who was found to have cancer in November 1983 - she had a niggling pain on and off for a while and was taken into a clinic for exploratory surgery. Unfortunately it was cancer amd it had grown in a space in her abdomen and so had gone undetected until it was too late to remove as it had spread into her stomach, kidneys and liver. She was given a course of radiation which made her so sick it took weeks for her to recover from.
.
She deteriorated and we promised her she would not have to go into hospital to die. With the help of district nurses and friends we looked after her at home until her death on 8th September 1984. She was 62 years of age.
.
As well as being my mother (I am an only child) she was my best friend who saw me through a divorce and getting together with my new husband although sadly she died before she could see us marry.
.
Ann at Zoology has kindly done this picture for me and I dedicate it to mum.
.



.

The next part is for one of my beloved cats named Maxie - rescued from the Cats Protection League - he climbed up the legs of my jeans and wouldn't go down again to make sure I was all his!
.
Everyone locally knew Maxie and he used to cross the road every day and collect his girl friend Snoopy and go through her garden and over the fence into the local cemetery and have a fine time hunting and bringing home "trophies".
.
He suddenly lost weight and a visit to the vet for x rays showed he had stomach cancer - he died six days later in my arms.
.

.

Finally I would like to remember everyone who is struggling against this evil disease and hope they win their battles and punch this evil disease on the nose.

.

Finally Friday

.

I've had a very busy week helping mum out with her chores.

So I'm having a rest today and hope to catch up on my beauty sleep.
