See You Later Diesel!

This past Wednesday in my arms I said my last see you later to Mr D, aka Diesel. My cheeky, happy go lucky ray of sunshine. He hadn’t been well for a few years, yet all his illnesses were overshadowed by Angelous’s. I think he had the same tummy issues as Angelous however due to his age when realised the vet advised against a biopsy. The last few months the signs were there, I didn’t see or didn’t want to see them. The last week and a bit he stopped wanting to eat then he withdrew from life, which hurt as he loved life.

He had 2 speeds. All out or fast asleep! Anything new that came into the house had to be inspected. He loved playing, loved annoying his bother who he adored. You could tell by how he followed him around. They had so many chases and play fights, never drawing blood. He loved hugs, had a meow just for a hug. He talked so much! Let me know loudly when it was breakfast or dinner time, he answered me back, he chirped, meurred, purred when it was hug time. For someone so tiny his headbutts could knock you off balance. If he didn’t like something he let you know loudly! He hated car journeys above 95kmph. He started singing in protest Continue reading “See You Later Diesel!”

Weekend Friday Favourites

After another long hiatus Weekend Friday Favourites is back! Back to stay! I hope you’re having a great weekend and thank you for stopping by to check out what’s been making me smile recently or caught my eye!

Battersea Dogs And Cats Home 2019 October Pin Up

I smiled so much with a tear in my eye when October came around on Battersea Dogs And Cats Home 2019 promotion for donations calendar. I donated however I’d prefer charities keep the money they spend on freebies for the animals. I’m convinced this is one of AJ’s relatives. AJ was a London boy and this little one’s marking’s are almost identical. The same tones, positions of markings, that cute serious look. Missing Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Hello October

Happy Autumn Fall! Happy October!

The first of October is a very special day around here. It’s Diesel birthday!

15 years old! How did that happen?! We celebrated with hoomin Mama coming home early, hugs, new toy and saying how much of a good boy and a cutie he is all day. It was his first birthday without his big bruv and he’s doing okay being the only cat. In addition to his hyperthyroidism, he has some tummy issues and is now on the same steroids AJ was. And just like AJ on those steroids he’s peeing more and kicking litter everywhere afterwards. Bad mama forgot cat nip on his birthday. Well I didn’t, I got him a cat nip ball I’d thought he’d go crazy over. He wasn’t too fussed, however almost daily he has a swipe at it. Tom boy’s still got it. He’s still jumping up high, having mad five minutes even if they’re not as often as a few years ago. I’m convinced he thinks he’s 18 in cat years.

The theme around here this year’s been Continue reading “Hello October”

I hope you’re having a great weekend! A short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourite as this girl really should be in the land of zzzzz for she has a long day tomorrow. Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently. 

Mr D

Just because. I think he’s looking forward to when it’s gets cooler. His hoomin mama isn’t. He’s not too well at the moment which is why he’s looking little thin. He’s eating and has a vets trip this week.
