Tom is sitting on the doormat by the cat flap, watching the world.
His ability to jump onto high things seems to have dropped in the last day. He failed to jump onto my kitchen bar chair and struggled to get onto D's organ bench, clawing holes in the plastic cover.
He pushed our bedroom door ajar and attempted to jump onto the shelf in the bay window but failed that too making a din.

He's a big boy (7kg) and the shelf must be around 75cm off the ground.

Tom managed to jump onto D's bar chair today so whatever stopped him doing this last week seems to have gone away/healed/improved.

That is good news.   :)

Gerrard the cat is sat with me as I write.  He keeps me company in the home office.  He likes to join my teaching sessions and has got to recognise the voices of some of my students.  He is particularly fond of a couple of my PGR who also have cats and who join the video conference.

About an hour ago Lab Major wandered into my office, looked at me lovingly, blew a vast and choking fart then wandered out again.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Resting, having just created an almighty rumpus bullying of the neighbouring cats (one of the nice ones that just minds it's own business rather than one of the big buggers that bullies her and sprays all over our door).
Us and the other cat's owners both appeared outside and I had to apologise for the wee hooligan.  :facepalm:

Poppy is feeling very sad as we were just at the vets.

She has torn her cruciate ligament in her back leg.

I have an appointment at the special veterinary hospital in Duisburg on Wednesday to discuss what kind of operation. I am starting to collect the €€€ for it.

Poppy is back home after an operation to repair her cruciate ligament (with what sounds like a piece of dental floss) and she is feeling very sad about things. Two weeks total rest (mostly in the crate) and then VERY slow walking. It's going to take a long time....

Cruciate ligaments are what hold the knee in a stable fashion.

The bones in the knee have pretty flat surfaces and without them the joint would bend back or sideways in a rather scary fashion.

Not actually my pet, but I came in from doing some gardening to find next-door but one's cat asleep in our spare room cum office. As if he owned the place.

Which in some ways he does.

Lying next to my desk. Farting. It is her new favourite thing. She even sneaks in here to snooze and fart when I'm elsewhere in the house and have shut the door.

Ezra died today. Heart attack or a stroke in the night: I found him this morning when I came to let the dogs out of their cage.  We're just back from taking him to the vet for cremation.

I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Bob is spending the night (or more) in the vet' hospital after apparently being shot with an air gun.  :sick:
He went out about 5am and we didn't see him until about 8pm, which is unusual, but not unheard of - we noticed a wound on his right hand side, in the abdomen area. Phone to the vet, trip up the road. Thank goodness for insurance.
Too many angry people - breathe & relax.
