A few people have (very kindly) enquired as to how Igpuss is doing on his new regime and, to tell the truth, we don’t know. He was doing absolutely great on the two injections a week for his arthritis, and then as soon as we dropped him to one a week, as directed, it all […]

We were just settling down to sleep last night – indeed, I had almost drifted off – when there came an unseemly scrabbling from under the bed. For various reasons (mostly lack of space) we have a number of Things stowed under the bed, and the scrabbling indicated at least one cat doing … Something. […]

We have wanted an aquarium for ever, but have never had the space to fit one in. And when we were doing the work for the kitchen, it seemed like a really good time to knock out the fireplace, and then we realised that made a gap for a teeny tiny fishtank. I looked on […]

Lily is having a hard-ish time of it right now – Henry has been bullying her for a few months. Not constantly, but enough to make her life uncomfortable from time to time, and now Ron is starting to join in now and again. However, Lilith is a stalwart, and takes it  pretty much all […]

Suzanne was kind enough to enquire after Lily, and I realised I had been remiss in not updating her fans. She is pretty much restored to full health now, thank you, but first she shared her cold with Henry and Ron. Being rude mechanicals rather than pedigrees, they shook it off within the week, whereas […]

Autumn has arrived here in Somerset all of a sudden; the evenings are drawing in, and there’s a lovely nip in the air. This seasonal change is confirmed by the Tribe; Mustrum is often indoors when I get up, cats are sharing the bed with us, more food is being eaten at home as the […]

Our weekend was bracketed by death. Friday night, maybe midnight or thereabouts, we were woken by mad scrabbling on the landing. Investigation revealed Ron with a new toy: another mouse was moments away from its end. There was a degree of oh-buggrit-we-want-to-sleep-clean-up-the-bits-in-the-morning and we subsided; until, that is, Ron brought his prize into the bedroom. […]

Dear Ron We know that you like to go hunting at night – we don’t like it, but we understand.  And we understand that you want to bring your kills home, although you don’t bring them to us to show them off. However, the chirps and other general noise that ensues is starting to get […]
