    Ah, now I've made the picture full size, I can see all the detail too. :)

    Are you entering the model in a show alfie?


    Lots of 'proper' rain here at last, and more to come as we wave goodbye to the swallows and summer.:hello: ....But the autumn could still be a good 'un! ;)

    Not a good day today.

    Collie Wobble disgraced himself by going for a Jack Russel again on the beach - 2nd time this week. The owner was really angry and didn't help by thrashing my dog. It was all pretty grim.

    My beautiful cat went out and minutes later I could hear him yowling & under the house, got into the foundations. Heck of a bother getting him out. Lost the power in his back end. Off to the vets which is about 50 miles away. He was in agony by the sound of him. Vet reckoned it was a blood clot that had lodged in his groin area after examining him and we all came to the decision best to be PTS as not a good prognosis.
    He was rescue cat that had to be on a special diet and had been very ill before we got him. He came here, ruled the roost. Killed loads of moles, voles, mice and once brought a weasel in. He never had a day of illness with us until today. We had him 4 years. he was only 7 and absolutely beautiful to look at. But a bit of a thug.
    It was all so very sudden & it feels rather odd.

    Dear choille, sending you hugs and condolences. So very sorry to hear about your much loved cat. Sounds like he had a lot of cat fun and hunting in his time with you. He had a good life. Love from Wales xxx

    Thanks Maggie- Just a big unexpected loss really. Glad we were about to hear him and get him to the vets. Feels a bit empty and wrong somehow.

    I know logic doesn't help much, but if there's a weakness, rather a sudden, short illness than something long and drawn-out, where the end is merely postponed.


    You were there for your lovely furry friend, which is what matters. It's horrible when they go off and hide, though that's a natural animal reaction.

    Hugs too from me. There are so many animals out there without families, maybe it won't be long before the emptiness is replaced by the patter of paws.

    Thanks Dave. I do agree - best a short demise than a long drawn out one.

    It was a saddle thrombus which I hadn't come across before. It seems to be common is some breeds. Just very shocking really, but so glad we heard him yowling and got him to the vets. If we hadn't we would have been looking for him and calling & wondering what had happened as he didn't appear in any way ill when he went out this morning.

    He's buried beside the burn now.

    We've planted shrubs or trees above where our pets are buried here, so Wilf (ferret) is a white hydrangea, Eric (ferret) is a viburnum, Daisy (cat) is an eleagnus and Poppy (cat) is a yellow elderberry.

    Knowing where they are and what represents them makes the historic pets still seem part of the place. :)

    so sorry to hear about the cat choille... but as said , lucky you were there and he didn't suffer . always sad saying goodbye but better to know he had a great life.


    not being insensitive [I hope] but I remember when I lived in my cottage [83-99] I had a paddock with a LOT of recue animals [goat,chook,geese, rabbits,gp's, etc ] plus 6 cats and a dog .. hence the orchard area became a pets cemetery ... when I moved the new owners had major alterations done plus landscaping . as I only moved close by , I heard the diggers stop and lots of shouting [workmen] .... apparently they had found "bones" and were not sure what they had discovered ... I slunk in the gate and said it was a pets burial ground and the look of relief on their faces was in a warped way ...so funny !


    the weather here has been yoyo'ing . very warm and close at times then rain ...
