We are due to go to Leeds this afternoon – we have tickets for a Show of Hands gig (yay!), and are also going into Ikea to pick up a few bits (yay! meatballs!). However, we did wonder last night whether we might have to cancel …  Ron wasn’t too well – he was doing […]

She’d been eating like a horse, but got thinner and thinner. perlmonger and I had resolved that we would give her food she liked, keep her warm and comfortable, and give her lots of love and fuss. She didn’t get meatier, but she has been bright-eyed, and happy to see us, and sat on laps […]

Well no, actually.  Aliss was returned to Vim the Vet this morning to see how she’s doing.  We thought she was doing really well, but she hasn’t put on any weight and that clearly concerns him. We’ve to take her back in a month (appointment made), and we have to starve her – and thus […]

She’s not well, and this is what I typed up for the vet. last frontlined: 4 October 2008, with the other three cats in the house. House sprayed with Acclaim again. Aliss pulls out her fur when stressed – she was very bad at end of last year, and we rehomed two of our (then) […]

Yesterday, Aliss spent the afternoon in the bath, behind the shower curtain. We expected to catch a glimpse of Alfred Hitchcock … During the evening (and indeed during the night) she moved to the bathroom basin. No, I don’t know why.

We had to take Aliss to the vet this week; she has been pulling out her fur, and has little spots on her body. She got very bad before Christmas, but recovered beautifully after we had rehomed the Senior cats, so we put it down to stress. But now she is bad again – not […]

We once took a photo of the whole Tribe together on the bed – it was in the days when They Were Nine, and gone are Mollie, Zool, Shrimp and Drumknott, and Esk and Ptep have moved to Norwich. I doubt we’ll ever get the current Tribe to sit together, but they were all in […]

the cats don’t spend much time indoors in this weather, and we try very hard not to worry if we don’t see them for a few days. we were away for a couple of days at the weekend, and the excellent Kelly at Rascal’s Retreat looked after them. We’ve seen everyone now since we got […]

other Blob and I each have rather whizzy 24″ TFT monitors, with lots of USB ports on them. this afternoon, while Aliss was sitting on my desk, as the Tribe so often do, my keyboard stopped working. Given that it’s a brand new one, I was somewhat discombobulated. Further investigation showed the the mouse was […]
