I like the way Little Monster Cat, who weighs 3kg wet, fluffs herself up like that's going to convince a fox she's an actual tiger.

Pumpkin is really decimating the mice at the moment.

Is pumpkin eating the mice, ripping the mice apart and then leaving the remains as proof of what she can do.  Or are they a new toy, played with then released in the house.

She plays with the corpses then eats them.

She had another one today.

Meanwhile Ninkasi is on my lap, snoring. Not little tiny kitty snores either but great big ones.

A new kitty on the block has turned up. It looks just like Mojo, a FFOTP.
Pumpkin is not impressed.

Our cats are mostly staying away from base. Blackie hardly came in to eat yesterday and has eaten less than usual today.  D says they've been atop the Observatory while he was at a Zoom in his warm room shed.

Catticus just walked into the office with a mouse in his mouth. I'm afraid he was expelled rather rapidly throughthe window.

He is now on the drive, playing with aforesaid mouse.

Update: he has just miaowed at the window to come back in; there is a small pile of mouse guts on the drive.

10 days ago, Dumpy Cat started throwing up and stopped eating much.  Couldn't even keep water down, so took him to vet who gave him anti-nausea and painkiller IVs and kept him in overnight.

Was ok for a day then started again.  Admitted again, did ultrasound scan and found no gut motility at all, so gave him a drug to stimulate that.

Came home after 2 days and was great for 24 hours then it started again.  Admitted to vet again, who did another scan and found small intestine lining had thickened in 5 days plus lymph nodes swollen.  Recommended biopsy (major op!).  Have taken samples of small intestine, bowel and lymph nodes.  After two nights in, he came home on Saturday.

Haven't had results yet but he's eating like a horse, not puking af all, and toilet functions are normal.  Vet reckons it's IBS, lymphoma if he's unlucky, but did suggest the trauma of the surgery might jog things back into action anyway.  He has a 4" seam holding his guts in and they have literally rummaged around inside, feeling his stomach and intestines.

Tesco pet insurance have been impeccable so far, given they're out for about £2,500  :thumbsup:

Anyway, he's just eaten a shedload of freshly cooked salmon and is snoring.

Weird side-effects: he has, overnight, learned to rub against my legs when he wants something, and also (with impeccably bad timing given he's supposed to take it easy) has learned to use the cat flap, which has baffled him for a year.  I think they gave him a ROM update while he was in surgery.

Dumpy hasn't been sick for a week, is eating normally and everything is coming out of the other end as it should.  He seems very happy.  Weird, as he hasn't actually had any treatment.  It may have just been an infection.  Still waiting on the biopsy results but he has a check up on Monday.

Puppy has flaked after tormenting elder dog by hiding under the sofa then running out barking at big dog barking before hiding under chair. Big dog can’t get under furniture so it’s canine hide and seek

Floof is splooting in the doorway that leads between our front hall and the part of the living room that a previous owner told us used to be the bathroom, but which now serves as occasional dining room and Mr Bait's working area. My office leads off the hall, so I am trapped at her arse end while Mr Bait has access to the kitchen.

Maybe she is trying to help me with my diet. I think she just likes being an impediment.

Dumpy's biopsy results have come back and he has IBD, not lymphoma.  However, to avoid it progressing to the latter, he needs a course of steroids to calm down his guts then a fairly restricted range of foods.  Poor little cat - he loves a variety of food, especially roast chicken or turkey.

The irony is that he's never been better, but IBD comes and goes.

Big dog seems to have accepted little dog and is actively seeking her out to play. Although play seems to consist of big dog clubbing the puppy to the floor and sitting on her whilst puppy bites big dog’s tail.

Sleeping in the sun on top of an old toolbox - at the bottom of our neighbours garden. And our (recently widowed) neighbour is fine with it. Unlike her late husband who tried to cat-proof  ::-) his garden.

They are both miaowing and moaning and squeaking and various other pathetic noises at the moment in their new home. We can't even go for a poo in peace as Pumpkin just paces up and down the hall shouting!
