It seems weeks ago that Flaire's two boys left for the North of England with their new family who did and incredible 9hr round trip to collect them. They have slotted into homelife really well with two little people to play with and get up to all sorts of trouble with. We get the odd update from the Rewcastle family especially when their Dad is back from his driving job. In the same spirit, two of SaBreena's kittens have also left home together to live with Aunt Missy (Miss Marple - SaBreena's Sister) There are already reports of no sleep in the Quinlan household with Aunt Missy taking over motherly role of wash and brush up before bed and some thieving of their toys. There are 3 dogs and 4 other cat's to get on with and of course, they have won everyone over already with their crazy antics. They are living life as kittens should - totally loved and given freedom to be who they are.
And talking of who they are... There is a little cat who just can't be who she truly is so a huge decision was made for sweet Pearly, SaBreena's Mum and Flaire's Daughter, to pack her bags and leave home on a trial basis. It all started back in 2020 when Pearly met the Davies family and really liked both Lottie and Neil, who I must add are THE most feline of feline specialists and so kind, calm and gentle and won Pearl's affections which is a rare thing. They met her twice and finally it was suggested that Pearl would live with them after the recovery from a pyometra and then a long mental recovery time with unusual hormone imbalance despite being neutered which caused awful skin rashes and awful bladder flare ups that went on for months. This all took a long year and finally, in October, she was ready to begin a new life with her new family.
I could go on and on about my Cousin in great detail about how she doesn't trust anyone in the world except Momma, how she is picked on and beaten up as well as as her beating up small kittens.....blah blah blah... Well, Momma delivered her and stayed the weekend to settle her in and how she thrived from the first minutes of arriving. The purr was on and her trust pilot light was lit and she hasn't looked back all thanks to Neil and Lottie's supportive introductions to her Grand Kits, Rufus Rex & Marlee May as well as two large domestic short hairs. The world is her oyster and she hasn't growled once at anyone! Makes you puff out your chest with pride - she is a genuine fruit loop but with the right environment, she is a super, funny, light hearted and active girl with so much to give and is so forward, loving and brave too. It's just incredible.
I have had my fair share of dramas too with my skin and breathing. It was quite frightening in October when I had licked kitten tuna and BAM, next thing I was running backwards coughing and inhaling vomit all at once which resulted in a vet visit because I couldn't stop doing it and ended up with food in my lungs and a day on a drip, lots of this and that as well as fluids and medications to take home. Sigh. Then my medication attacked me and I could't have that anymore and that's what allows me to eat normal cat food. Sigh. Then I had to go back to the vet because my skin is sore and my breathing is all over the place and I now have to see a fancy specialist which will use up all of the money Momma saved for her special purrday this year. Sigh
Ikon has been suffering from a poorly willy and for some reason, hormones have played a part in his manhood being inflamed and sore. All tests, scans, thising and thatting have been carried out since may and the vet supported Momma to get a couple of litters from him and also hormone shots to give his pinkie a good healing session - then, out of the blue it all kicked off again, despite not being juiced up....He will be going into see vet Aidin soon to have his pompoms removed and make a very happy lapcat instead. he is a stress head and yells all day, unlike his chilled out son who doesn't care about yelling. He also isn't really that fussed with the girls.... well, would you be if you winky was sore?! Magnus will have to take over from his Father in the stud department. I wonder if that means he will FINALLY not want to chase me around the garden? Doubt it, can't get rid of my nemesis that quickly!
FillyCat is finally pregnant after first meeting Ikon and him being totally terrified of her and was found crying at the door of Al-CAT-raz to be let out. She was having none of it and beat him up so badly that every time he saw her after that, he slunk down and crept away. Ironically, his Son Magnus Rex, was not to be beaten back so easily and wouldn't take her vile and darned right vicious attacks as a no way jose moment and frequently slapped her as hard as she slapped him. Round two a few weeks later saw her a little more subdued but she was so nasty every time he grabbed her neck that on the third try, yet a further few weeks later, resulted in him going free for all, paws behind his head "Yeah baby - take that" - "Look Momma - No Paws." It was the funniest thing to watch but he was hell bent on getting the technique down to a no touchy feely policy and FillyCat was soon spinning about and rolling around on the deep shag pile mats! Magnus certainly had to use every inch of subterfuge with her and twenty one days later and she was all ruby red in the 'nips' and hey presto the seeds were sown.
I am glad I have finally managed to get the scribe to get this job done and I can only send my apologies to those who have nothing better to do than wait avidly for my blogs.
