Just had Lily & Oscar to the vet's for the second half of their vaccines.
Needed two cat baskets & only have one, so I walked up to the vet's & back for a loan this morning, thus giving purpose to my 4 mile walk.
Oscar pulled off a real whiny, crying, wriggling & hissing performance which meant he ended up getting TWO needles stuck in him, rather than one & he's back to sulking under the table in the front room.
Lily sat & purred all the way through hers...
Comment from the rather cute South African female vet about Oscar: "Gosh, he's huge!"
He does seem to have stretched somewhat of late, though he's still skinny, despite demolishing four pouches & a bowl of biscuit a day. Can't be worms, as that was sorted three weeks back, so I'm guessing it's all going into him becoming a lanky git for now.
They've always been small, probably from lack of food, it's a good job MrsHogg took a shine to them and started sly feeding them behind my back to start with. Once I found out, they got fed twice a day.
With the deadline of the vets looming in a couple of weeks we have been giving Sooty her meds direct into her mouth and then rewarding her with cream - she seems OK with the situation.
In fact, like most moggies on here she has decided that my laptop is her personal heating device and frequently plants herself on the keyboard and then looks at me as if to say "What??" Yesterday she stretched, opened her claws and proceeded to rip the "J" key off its mountings - it took me ages to try to re-attach as Sooty wouldn't shift off the bloody laptop.
Here she is claiming her territory:
Meanwhile, the Beast Who Lives Upstairs (Poppy) is running around with elephant feet (paws) and generally being a pest.
Just found out there is a sick bastard in the area (Fareham, Hants) who is dismembering cats and leaving the body parts on the cat owners doorstep.
If I ever found out who this sick c**t is I will be looking at prison time for GBH/attempted murder.
