Somehow I put in a post, then deleted it.While I am away, the cat has played. Poppy came in late one evening with skin hanging off a back leg
Phone call by Hugh to the after-hours Vet’s number, talked to the vet, up to the clinic, full anaesthetic and stitches and a bright fluoro bandage, and 3 hours later, they were home.
The on-going visits have shown all is well, the skin is healing as expected, and with the after hours op, dressing changes three times a week, the DOLLARS creep up !!!
However she is now free from the wire walls, which has been her home for over a week, confined to the house inside only,
PANIC !!! One morning Hugh did not shut the large cage door properly, Poppy managed to get it open and was in the lounge, but Hugh didn’t see her.
'” Shut all the doors!! Has she got outside??? Where is she???” A very descriptive email from Janet told me the whole story.
So when I go home on Thursday all should be well, hope the dressing changes are over, and she doesn’t do anything like this again.
The vet thought she had scraped her leg on corrugated iron, or wire netting, not a cat fight.
In my travels there have been cats.dogs, and bike riders.
Here is Bobby, the Manx cat at Gloria’s home. He is so friendly,and sat so quietly.
Here is Bonny , a darling soft fluffy grey boy, at another home, his lovely Mum and I shared a Mother’s Day Hug together, 2 total strangers joined by the day and our love of cats.
At Gloria’s home I met the dogs. they were so happy to play together and show off their
tricks with the agility course on the front lawn.
Ted, the 10 week old working Bearded Collie, was full of mischief, and joined in with
Doogal and Bear. He will go a pale grey as he gets older.
Doogal, is an Irish Wolf Hound, he was found abandoned in a quarry when he was a pup and the vet’s words, “ I don’t think he will pull through,
You could play the fiddle on his ribs” Lots of TLC that worked a miracle, and here he is at 9 years old. A very gentle boy.
Bear is a 16th month old working Bearded Collie, and does both Agility courses and dog training.
He is full of life, and wanted to be part of the action all afternoon.
Here are the older dogs, with a saddle and jockey strapped on, Little Ted waiting for more fun.
Bear came through the tunnel at great speed, and Ted just sat, glad to have a rest.

but leave a part of themselves in your own heart forever”
