Flat cat

There she is, everyone – my one hen! In the absence of Spoon, this is the remains of my flock. This and three roosters. Don’t worry about her, though – she’s little and quick. She doesn’t have any unwanted chicken sex.

I’m late tonight because kitty isn’t himself and I’ve been trying to work out if he’s really ill. He was limping on his right back leg a couple of days ago, and now he’s just moving stiffly and subdued. I tried without much success to get some Metacam down his neck (kitty Ibuprofen – to my surprise, I had a bottle that was still in date).

If he’s still logy tomorrow, I’ll take him to the vet. Have to get a new cat carrier, though – the old one has been a chicken house since forever.

Here at Castle Durn we send our best wishes to the kitty.

We pamper ours like no one’s business so we know how hard it is when the furry kids are out of sorts long enough that you set a “get better by” date or it’s off to the vet.

I have asked our two kitties, Dixie (the black girl) and Killer (the orca patterned girl) to join me in a trans-Atlantic beam-cast of cat-get-all-better vibes for the duration. Here goes…

Stoaty “Have to get a new cat carrier, though – the old one has been a chicken house since forever.”

There’s a pleasing symmetry in that, no?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
