Pearl is being difficult. No one is quite sure what is wrong with her? Momma took her to the vet for a check up and a scan on her tummy. They found nothing. She is so growly and is on antibiotics. When she takes those, she is ok again. The sooner we can get her to see her boyfriend Picket, the sooner we can figure out if it is just hormonal like her Grandma Gracie. They are very similar My Mum and Pearl, it is quite uncanny how it can skip a generation. Of course, we are all hoping she doesn't have the mad 'eat your children gene' like Grandma Grace.
Winter seems to have created some rather fat critters here at Maystar and even though Momma brought a very pricey exercise wheel for us - no one, as yet, has used it! Momma has found it hard bending over in the last 6weeks, but now she is feeling a bit better, it seems we are going to be trained. Some need it more than others! Mentioning no names. LILLIBET & FAITH... uhh-herm. They are a tad rotund around the middles and Faith is rather flappy about her lower belly and Lillibet is allowed to be a tad fatter because she can stress that right off in a week. You can feel Faiths ribs now at least as Momma has them on a 'LITE' version of our food. That part is working. Momma also has to weigh out the food now too, because Lillibet is a gannet and will scoff the lot. These electronic feeders are fab, but you can eat your weight in kibble if you want to!
Flaire is a little sad that her children have left home now. Two have gone this week. Lionel and Tilly Tickle. Tilly was meant to stay here of course, but not all things have worked out so well there. She can only hear in one ear. Good enough to hear food and toys tinkle. But not good enough to have babies from it seems. That's fine. I am Queen Vee here, we don't need any more Minicats - I shall make Momma a special chocolate one that doesn't get grubby like those white ones! It doesn't help Flaire though. She is moping about and not eating very well. She can be quite a brat where food is concerned. She has to have special food too for her silly belly.
She will come around. She always does. These Minicats have been so much fun, lots of games and now it's all change. Poor little Elly is all alone until she can take her trip to Holland and her new family. It is better too to travel in the Spring time as it will be warmer for the crossing.
The only issue with me going to stud now is it will eat in to the Parentals Summer trips away. We may all have to go caravanning together with kittens - that could be fun or a crazy disaster! Watch this space. For now, we will keep and eye on the birdies and the Horrible Horrace troupe of squirrels. They have grown to 7 of them now and so much gravel has gone missing. Our garden is more like a mud forest than a pretty woodland garden. They munch our bulbs and take our food and drink from our water fountain. But all in all they are fun to watch and play games with my Sister as though one is a squirrel one is a wild cat. It lots of fun and quite exhilarating.
Well, this Queen must go and get ready to meet her man. I need a milk bath and a manipedi before I go. I want to smell and taste my best for him. Wish me luck!
Your loyal and loving Queen Vee. =^..^=
