Hi Guys,

Still no computer, but it's getting closer. You are all in my thoughts. I have been having a bit of a clear out at my house, and I found my old camera that I took the bulk of my pics of Mousie over the years. In early 2014 before she got sick the first time, I was babysitting her and we were in the basement where she spent most of her time. She would hang out on the bunk bed, as it was her bed. I had been snapping away, and had to take a break to go to the human litter box. I left the camera in the middle of the bed. When I came back, in time-honoured kitty fashion she had pushed it to the edge and knocked it to the ground. Moooouuussssee! Noooo! My camera is NOT a hockey puck. Anyway, it was permanently broken as the lens doesn't wind back in when I switch the power off. I didn't throw the camera out because I like it too much, but time went on and I bought a cheaper one, and eventually joined the rest of the world and got an android phone which takes tremendous pictures. When I chanced upon the camera last night, I switched it on, and surprisingly the battery hadn't run down. I looked at the album, and there they were: pics of Mousie! It was such a lucky discovery and really brought back memories. As soon as I can, I will post them.

Enjoy the springtime.

Another Milestone

It's a little over 10 months since I lost Mousie. As with most holidays, I would spend Easter weekend, and sometimes the whole week with her depending on what her beans were doing. I thought about her alot this weekend as I had time to reflect. I even went for a walk on a field near to her house. The anniversary is coming up. I don't have a computer at present and am posting from a cafe. I hope to be up and running before then, as I would like to post some pictures. I miss them as they are my memories. I suppose it is a bit unhealthy to hold on to them, but it is also a comfort. Most unhealthy habits are! 

I hope you all had a restful time and ate lots of treats.

Laptop Misery

 I've been away for a while due to various reasons. Don't worry, I have not gone awol. My laptop has gone kaput, but thankfully, we've saved all of the Mousie pictures. I hope to be up and running - and posting to da blog in the next couple of weeks. I've missed you all. Stay tuna-ed.

For Mousie, it was always important to maintain a certain standard of grooming
even when she was on top of the fence patrolling the garden.

Fishy Breath

When Mousie would yawn, lick, or burp (yes, she did that on occasion!) there would always be a smell of fish emanating from her mouth. Which was weird, as she was fed products that were beef, turkey, or chickey flavoured. never fish. But by G'd, when she opened her mouth - you could close your eyes and imagine you were by the seaside!

Does anyone else have this issue with their cats or kittys?

Sometimes, when Mousie was in a deep sleep, she would snore like a Rhino! 
For a split second, I would think it was me.

This Year

This year, on a personal level, there were ups and downs. On a world level, I don't think I need to explain how horrific it was. 
I am praying that this year is better than last year. We can only hope.

Eat Too Much

Sometimes, you gotta eat too much

and not give a sh*t!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break.

Christmas Grieve

This is another one of those hurdles that we all go through in the first year of a kitty's passing. 
Every year for the past 14 years I have either babysat Mousie and had Xmas lunch with her, or got to see her between the Christmas and New Year break.
  It is a corner that needs to be turned, but no less painful.

Almost There

We are almost at the end of one of the most awful years ever
Thank G'd!
