Cats. Feline funnies and other stuff.

Charlie deciding between a warm lap or breakfast.

Decisions, decisions...
 
Sunday morning tummy time…View attachment 618821
Our old cat loved to do that, but would also knead with his claws out. Repated ouchs & oaths didn't cause the penny to drop. Eventually I realised the best way was to wear my thickest jumper when he wanted lap time, which I always referred to as "the stab vest".
 

Train driver: "this job'd be a lot easier without those giant cats in the ruddy tunnel!"
 
That seems to be the problem of the sofa evictions solved. I took the back cushions off and created more space. He wasn;t too keen at first, he liked the cushion back rest, he decided to give it a go and now he's curled up in a ball snoring his head off

Yep. Jarvis does that too, hence the duvet is always pulled up to my chin.

My senior cat Lilee goes through phases where she likes to sneak in about 6 in the morning, and wants to snuggle with me under the duvet.

She prefers to snuggle when I'm on my right side, so she'll wake me with a clawed tap to the head to turn me, if needed, then it's head in armpit, paddling like crazy, with her body along my chest.

It bloody hurts, I have to try to clamp her paws if I can, and try to get back to sleep.
 
Best wishes for the old fella.

Why do they continue to prescribe pills, with all the associated problems you describe, and which we have all endured . . . verging on the loss of human limbs/life . . . when a syringe of whatever, could be more easily squirted into the side of their mouths ?!

Probably cost. The last time I took Jeeves when he had a chest/throat infection it was just over £100 for the consultation, a long acting anti biotic jab and 5 day's worth of painkiller and a dosing syringe

Individual vet practices just don't have the buying power to get the best discounts from the drug companies or wholesalers.

Where I live in South Liverpool there are only a couple of independent vet practices, mine Woolton Vets are brilliant and one of the vets is specialising in feline medicine. My 16 year old cat was there last week for surgery, under local anaesthetic, and they were brilliant,


And the other one is in the city centre, who are also brilliant.


I always feel with corporate vets, they try to get as much out of those of us who don't have insurance.
 
Update on Tink, he's doing well, little unsteady on his feet this morning, but he used the litter tray last night, and this morning he tucked right in to a third of a pouch of Felix Chicken with his anti biotic tablet. His fur isn't falling out like it was, and his left eye looks less sunken.

The Vets are due to call back with the results of his blood test early this week, , I may have baulked at the £200 vet bill, but it was money well spent as it turned out.

Can't even look away.
I do wonder how/who . . .
 
From deaths door at the weekend, to ear twitching interest at the world outside the window, Tink is well on the way to a full recovery, due to the Miracle that is Anti Biotics. Thanks all, for your messages of support.

How long after that was taken did you hear the crash as that glass case and contents were gently shoved over the edge...?
