Snow Day

.

It snowed a little bit at the weekend
.

.

and we couldn't wait to go outside (unlike mum)
.

.

It was furry cold but we went out in our normal fur coats (unlike mum who wore at least 2 jumpers under her coat (of the inferior non fur kind)

.


.
Hannah is checking that mum didn't leave any washing under the rotary line cover.

.



.

Lucy is checking that the winter jasmine is still flowering.

.

.

One last look round and then inside to warm our toesies.

In Memory of Emma

.

This is Emma the cat who lived here before us. It is a year today since she was helped to Rainbow Bridge.

.

.

She had been an intrepid hunter and brough back birds, mice, rats and moles on a regular basis. She once brought home a canary from where mum never asked!!
She was chosen by mum's late husband and adored him and watched many an hour of television perched on his lap. When he died she was never quite the same and mum thinks she was pining for him.
She was a fit and healthy lady cat until the last few months of her life when she had kidney problems and several strokes which affected her sight and made her almost blind. (if you bigify the photos you can see her eyes are different)
.

.
Mum made a hard decision and a final journey to the vet was made and she died being cuddled by mum. She was cremated and Mum buried her ashes in her beloved lap daddies ashes plot.

.

.

Hairy Blankie

.

Hannah: This is me on our hairy blankie knitted by Peggy and it is really cosy- we won it in an auction for Jan's Funny Farm.

.

.

Lucy: and this is me on it getting it just right so for a snooze while mum is reading the papers.

.


.
We both love snuggling on it and getting cosy warm especially since it is quite cold here now.

Lucy - "Rats I've been caught on camera!"

Thankful Tuesday

.

Paws for thought.
.


.
Lucy would like me to thank you all for your messages and good wishes while she was ill - she got another shot from the vet last evening and does seem much perkier and is eating some again . We are sure it is purr power that has made her improve and just get the tiniest bit bossy.

Lucy Update

.
Lucy is much brighter today and is playing in and out of her tunnel. However getting the meds down her throat is getting to be a bit problem now she is very fiesty!!

.

.
I am taking her back to the see the v-e-t lady who I usually see for them this afternoon and hope she can change the meds to tablet form or slow release injection as my hands and I are losing the battle with syringing the different ones in to her.
.
We would like to thank everyone for their kind messages - I will get round to replying to you all soon.

Purrs for Lucy Please

.
Could you all please purr for Lucy.
.



.
She woke me in the night being sick and I got out of bed to clean up and found it was just blood. I rushed to ring the vet and while I was dialling she was sick with blood again.
The vet said to go straight down and she examined her and thinks it may be an ulcer - she gave her a shot of antibiotic and sent me home with Antepsin which she has to have by syringe 3 times a day and Zantac to be given by syringe twice a day.
At present she is hiding in a basket as she is mad at me for wrapping her in a bath towel and giving her both lots of medication!
She must not have any food until this afternoon so have had to feed Hannah "behind closed doors"!
Does anyone have any advice to give me please?
I am just praying she is not going to be sick with blood again and this is just a one off episode - it being the weekend makes it seem so much worse as the vets are only on call after lunchtime today.
Sorry for my ravings but I beside myself with worry over this.
Mum Sue
