Then it got all too much for Gazoo and she began climbing the outer security fence to catch her a tasty winged treat of pigeon with a side of chaffinch. It's an odd thing as usually she is one to enjoy watching and has never ventured over the fence, except she is now 30 plus days pregnant and I guess those pigeons are full of fancy flighfull vitamins and minerals. It's an odd thing when you are up the duff, you really do begin craving more exotic things and I feel Gazoo has a bit of Horrace on her mind. However, those pesky squirrels are just as cautious as ever as they too are up the duff and can smell her a mile off.
Mae is a surprising five months old this week. Just where does the time go? It has been a full month since her Mum, FillyCat left home for a safer haven and is gradually coming out of her shell with her new lady owner. She has met a number of the cats and dogs now, just briefly and gently so as not to spook her. So far there has been a good reception on both sides and she is happy to stay with her human for comfort and trusts her to take all the fears away. We are not worried it is taking awhile as she is a nervous girl and being a lockdown baby just didn't see anyone at all. She is a very gentle girl, so we know she can do it and have a much less stressful home with no drama queens to contend with.
On the same note, Ikon has been in his new home for little under a month and essentially walked in, sized up everyone and everything and decided 'this will do'. I t was a perfect place for him in the end to go to friends of ours in Yorkshire where they have a terrific garden, a couple of easy going dogs and a Parrot called Mrs Miggins, who he still isn't pals with yet. No bad thing!! He does however, play with Pants the little Terrier dog and steals her bed regularly. Once her is re-microchipped for the UK he will be able to venture out into the garden and play tag with his canine mates. They go for long walks too and may even start to take him in a rucksack. He would love that. We are so happy he is happy, especially me, he was my nemesis!!
Gazoo will be due in July. She will be very busy until then scratching up the bedding and boxes and Momma's pillows until then. For now, she rests frequently and spends a little time in the kitten room. We can see her through the cat flap where she blows raspberry over the giant bowl of kitten kibbles.... Grrr. Never mind. We give her a splendid thwakking once she appears. I just doa bit of chasing but SaBreena is going all out. She does not want to be anything less than TOPCAT! She has also been beating Mae up too, grabbing mouthfuls of blue and white fur. Both Gazoo and Mae sleep with Momma to keep them from the jaws of Bree. I have to sleep in with her instead to keep her in check!
Sol will stay here for the Summer months as he has a few Ladies to service before he heads off to his family. He was meant to go to a breeder in America, but due to Covid it became difficult to fly him out there, so vaccinated for travel, documented and ready for an entire life, he stayed to make a few Maystar ladies happy making Gazoo and Sol a wonderful match of two fourth generation Maystar lines to come together for the first time. An exciting match. Their first union didn't go so well, Gazoo lost her babies and got an infection and has been on long term antibiotics until a week ago. Now those babies seem quite stable and a scan has shown many spinning babies, everyone is much happier. She will still have all she needs to hopefully get to full term this time.
Talking of full term. This has exhausted me no end and I need a right royal kip now. I shall bid thee fartheewell until next time.
Your Queen Vee =^..^=
