MS, wonderful that HRH is enjoying eating when you offer the right indulgence!
Seems lots has been happening while I’ve been off-air. Everyone, I hope that your fingers, throats, microwaves, relations with landlords etc. are all on the mend, and that your cats continue to thrive and enjoy life.

Was mortified when my cat TC caught and ate a bat. Went out one night and came home to find 1 1/2 wings by the back door, where we were used to finding sparrow feet. I know there are lots of little insect-eating bats around but the ones I see most often are the big noisy fruit bats (flying foxes).

Wonderful pics as always. Particularly love that demented black cat (but then, I love black cats) and ‘I’z smiling’.
MS, that’s GREAT that HRH can enjoy her food and a little bit of sunshine.
KZ, I’d be concerned about Thumbalina if she’s vomiting clear fluid and not eating and she doesn’t pick up again very soon. Bringing up hairballs, dinner,…[Read more]
Truffle, you are a beautiful mature lady. I’m so glad that you found a human who appreciates you and will keep you in the manner to which you hope to become accustomed. And yes, rescue cats do understand that they have been rescued, and are grateful.
MS, I do hope HRH picks up! So hard to work out what a cat is thinking and feeling, and still harder to know what might help her feel better.
My earliest datable memory is standing with my family in the front garden on a very cold, clear night, looking up at the sky, looking for ‘a sputnik’. I’d ask, ‘What’s a sputnik?’ and they’d reply ‘It’s like…[Read more]

MS, congratulations! A partner is crime is very likely, alas.
Had to laugh at the cheetah lap cat because Sampson gazes at me with the same drippy expression. I hope for Kim’s sake that the cheetah does not insist on riding on her shoulder and giving her sloppy kisses and love bites!
MS, I do hope HRH continues to perk up now she’s had her urk! up. Eating a whole can sounds like a very good sign. Old age is sad, whether cat or human, but it comes around so fast with cats. Tell Shadz she’s letting the side down re the mouse. Back in my student days our decrepit share-house got invaded by mice. We set traps and caught a few, but…[Read more]

Someone I once worked for was tickled by letters from Germany addressing him as Herr Doktor Professor. (Yes, he was a physics professor.) A newspurrson? How about Hey you!
