Alfie got his Christmas present early. A massive cat castle. He loves it.
We're after something similar: where did you get it?
Aldi had one a few weeks back, probably all gone now though
I've got one I'm going to put up for sale, it's just too big for my area. It's a shame, because it's otherwise a good one.
I purchased one off mydeal.com.au
It was the cheapest place I could find new ones, that were of a decent size
By the look on his face.....you forgot underwear
These three never leave me alone when I'm eating.
From left to right, Chai Tea, Papadum, and Naan Bread.
LOL i'll take a pic of a real castle when i get home... only got a single cat and the spoilt brat got a 2m tall thing. Cost me all of $95 on special through mypetwarehouse i believe it was.
wait, those are their names?
Naan bread looks particularly angry
What are they looking at? Why aren't they all over those eggs?
Awesome to see the little guy recovering so well!
Meanwhile, in Manila...
VIggo gets very angry when it's time for me to go back to Aus, he normally pees in my suitcase, of course, that got old real fast, so I now have to pack in such a way as to have my bags always closed unless placing an item into it.
So, this morning, I got a frantic message from the Minister of War and Finance...
The damn cat took a dump in the middle of the bed to protest against my leaving. Significant other not at all happy, and the Bengal has lost bedroom privileges for the foreseeable future...
They really do bond with you, but, damn, they're not at all happy when you leave...
As for Aspen...
How to train your kitteh!
Sure are. They're not particularly happy about it as far as I understand it.
She a grump.
I'd be grumpy too if I had to sit getting my photo taken in front of a smorgasbord of delicious tucker instead of getting brekky served to me.
Well, tonight is the first night sleeping at home without Shadow in the house since I got her a little over 10 years ago, as she's in hospital at the moment after vomiting some blood last night. She's been sick quite often lately and has lost a lot of weight over the past year so the vet wanted to keep her for some blood tests and fluids and an X-Ray to rule out some things. The combination of symptoms could all be linked or not at all, but she is still sprightly and quite chipper, at least until putting her in the cat carrier - which is the hardest thing I have ever gone through.. I can't imagine what it must be like for you parents when your child is in pain calling out and there is nothing you can do, Shadow's cries (she hates the car like it is going out of fashion) upsets me so so so much.
House feels pretty empty tonight without her constant chatter.
I'm sure there's a photo of her somewhere in this thread but here's something I did up for instagram a while back, cause we need pictures
I hope she'll be fine and they'll figure out her problem and fix it.
Damn, best wishes to you guys!!! Really hope it's something not too serious, and which you can work with. I'm sure they will do the blood tests for the standard chronic cat diseases like FIV and feline leukemia (if they don't, then ask about them, because as with any chronic disease, the earlier you catch it the better), which unfortunately are all too common in cats allowed to roam and interact with neighbourhood cats (one bite from an infected cat and there you have it, and unfortunately there are infected cats everywhere). We lost our girl Kit to these a couple of years ago. As a result our new cats are indoor and controlled outdoor only.
(realised in hindsight that this might have sounded a bit morbid, at a time when more hopeful chatter is probably preferred. I was just thinking that it will be really great to be able to rule out those common chronic things, and have it be something minor and easily treatable instead)
Best withes for Shadow, hopefully just a bug of some sort, or something easily treatable.
I know what you mean, though. When Viggo got out and hit by a car (my own fault), it was heartbreaking. Seeing what is normal a miniaturised leopard with dilated pupils and in shock, with a front leg at an angle that looked not quite right... He ended up being away for nearly a month.
Having him back in the house leaping all over the place and talking his talk was one of the happiest days I can remember.
When Shadow comes back tot he house happy and on the mend, you'll feel the same. Best wishes for a speedy kitty recovery, mate.
tat's awful afcca. I know the feeling all too well. We feel so helpless when our furbabies are badly ill - and we can't just make it better.A cat's cry of distress is visceral
We're rooting for you..
