And what a crap morning it is, alright for ducks I suppose, the weather people never seem to get the forecast right these days. Yet again we have gone from gorgeous days to rain, rain and more rain. The dogs love it though… I don’t it creates such a dam mess everywhere, plus it is so warm and humid, you have to have and hat coat on to go out, but then you are sweating cobs. It is no wonder people catch so many colds.
Ella has changed so much since Baer came, she is no longer scared to move and play, like she was with Poppy, indeed she has become a puppy again, showing Baer lots of naughty things to do..
Sunday morning, I watched the splash about in the rain water, they had such good fun, I missed the best video and or picture when silly Baer ran like a mad thing in to a circle then straight in to the closed gate.
It has been a busy week and for sure a busy weekend. Tom Hardy went off to his new home on Saturday, just after I made the most awesome video of him on the wheel, with one of the mists, I have been told to enter it in to a competition, which I have, it is named ‘how too and how not to ride on a wheel’
The Instagram link is HERE.
Now that Tom has gone to his new home the Australian mist are running on the wheel also, but I was not aware of this until the other night when I sat in my bed, thinking I bet there will be a lot of soot on my fireplace tomorrow, because that wind is sure howling tonight, it turned out to be them powering way on the wheel lol.
On Sunday Ray and his wife who do home visits for German shepherd rescue came to see Baer, they stayed a couple of hours, Wendy who knows them both very well from the obedience world, took them down to see the cats, they were soon smitten, Ray was mobbed by Abyssinians, he had Taya around his neck and Tia in his arms…
Baer was not too badly behaved lol, Ray was very pleased with how she looked etc., we will see them again soon I am sure.
We had the worst possible news for one of our cats, which will mean that will be changing all of the cat fencing, but until then they are going in the enclosure, so we only have Q, Aphrodite, Jet, Reba and Rhianna in the house as well of course as the kittens. Reba and Rhianna were also going out that was until Friday night.
I was out with Baer and Ella, my neighbour phoned me, she said Debbie, just to let you know one of your Bengals was out and both Millie and Heather have chased her and I think she is in your engine. Mille and Heather are two of the farms Springer’s and they hate cats, chickens, rabbits. Basically I think anything that moves to be honest…
So I checked as soon as I heard the message and she was under the engine plate in my car, I tried to get her out, but I could not see her only hear her, I did not want to start the engine to frighten her out, in case she was either near or would run in to something that would hurt her badly, so I just left her to settle down, I went out to her a couple of times in the night but she still refused to come out.
Next morning I heard her under the car again, when I took the dogs out, I left the gate wide open and the other cats locked in the kitchen, she obviously got out as when I opened the door there she was, now it was only a quick look I gave her as I was drying the dogs feet, but I had now opened the kitchen door and when I had finished she was on the chair in the kitchen, I could see as soon as I looked at her something was wrong with her leg, I thought broken as there was bone peeping through the skin…. I rang Wendy and she came over and took her to the vets, I could not drive at that time, it takes me some time to get the morphine in my body long enough for me to be safe to drive.
Wendy dropped her off, she told them very clearly that no matter what she was coming home that night, but until the head vet came in she was made comfortable and given pain meds. Claire the head vet re assessed her, she was x-rayed etc. She has fractured one of the long bones, but she had badly dislocated her elbow, so much so it had come through the skin. They could not operate on her until Monday as they have to order a plate to fit in her leg to hold the bone back in place due to the torn ligaments etc. So today she will be dropped off after 11 and have her operations, she has been in a lot of pain this weekend, she has been prescribed antibiotics, plus Tramadol and Loxicom, the antibiotics she eats out of your hand, the Loxicom is a medicine and though she fights you she will swallow it, but getting the Tramadol down her has been a night mare. We have tried the pill giver we have tried disguising it in food, we have tried crushing it up on a spoon, but no matter which way she froth’s at the mouth and gets really upset. She makes a run for it as soon as I open the plastic bag with the medicines in… yesterday with two of us we got one down using the pill giver and a syringe filled with water to wash her down, but on your own she has 16 legs and she can turn herself inside out lol.
I am stressing already about this operation and it is quite a few hours off yet, so I will have to occupy myself until it is time to leave.
The decking is coming this week, so we can make a start then Gerard can get the summer house done, hopefully this will make for an easier winter for the cats, mind they are still dumb enough to sit in the mud… but you cannot cure dumb, so we have to hope they learn that a clean dry bottom is better than a wet, muddy one.
Right I am off for some breakfast now, bacon and egg on Pitta bread wraps I think… this morning…
Ta Ta for now my lovely followers xxxx
