Our cat Pix had a big cyst on his back, he had it cut off & had 10 stitches so had a lampshade on his head. He didn't like that one bit & somehow pulled it off & pulled a load of stitches out. Took the brainless pillock back to vets to have staples put in & we bought him an inflatable lampshade, it's like a small rubber ring, he seems happier with that & hasn't pulled it off. He's driving us mad wanting to go out, but we've locked his catflap: he keeps meowing at us then looking at the back door, he does this several times an hour & it's very boring. Taking him to have his stitches out on Tuesday & will ask vet if he can go out, I hope he can as he's driving us crazy...

Just been out mowing leaves up off the lawn, and as usual, within ten minutes, three of my neighbours cats came round and rolled around on the patio until I gave them their daily treat of biscuits. Magic !

They're ALL irresistible, especially when they lay on their backs and expect their tummies tickled. Then stand on their hind legs as I pat their heads !

Sooty lived with friends of a friend. They moved abroad and Sooty went to live with the friends. They moved to a rented house where no pets were allowed, so he came to us.

Sooty got into a scrap one day.

 

After 4 years he brought me a dead bird, so I know we were at last accepted.

Our cat Pix has been chasing his own tail again, SWMBO says "he's a clever boy!" No he's not, he's totally stupid, we don't have to worry about cats taking over the world if they're all as daft as him, lol... He's going berserk now & charging round the lounge, lol...

Must be bad weather on the way, Colly.  I think they are smarter than we give 'em credit for.  :biggrin:

My wife Sue was talking about Pix, I asked why she was whispering? She said "I don't want him to know we're talking about him!" I give in I really do, lol..

Just took our Pix to the vets for his annual check up & jabs: He's a bit over weight at over 5 Kg's the fat bloater. He's whinging & moaning wanting grub as I type this but I've told him he's got to cut down. The vet nurse was hugging & loving him, I was jealous as she's gorgeous, she didn't hug & love me, sulk..

I've just been doing a few hours weeding and light digging in the garden but one of our cats wanted to be with me and he kept flopping down on top of the plants, mostly strawberries.  I kept shooing him off but he kept coming back and rolling on top of everything.  I expect he'll probably use the freshly dug earth as a loo later....

Don't you just love 'em...

Took my 2 varmints to the vets yesterday for their annual check up and jabs. Wallace, or chubby as he is known, weighs 17lb, Gromit 14lb. It wasn't that long ago that there was only 1/2lb difference! Vet didn't seem overly bothered by tubby's girth. Wallace is everyone's friend, greets folks at the door, jumps in their laps, and was rubbing round the vet all the time there. Vet says, I want a cat just like this when the dogs have died. I laughed and said, that's not very nice, and said, that's what my wife says! Gromit spends all the time in the vets office figuring out where he can hide and tries squeezing behind anything he can fit in. They are so opposite.

Our mother and son are very different from each other.  The son is huge but is very nervous of new people and funny noises, but is very pushy (he's a head butter)  with us an demands attention all the time.  

His mother is small and not worried at all about new people coming in the house.  She is, however, very unpredictable - one day she will be very insistent that she wants to sit on my lap whatever I'm doing and won't leave me alone, and another day, she just glares at me and shrinks away when I try and stroke her.  I suppose you could say she is just a moody cat sometimes!
