Run to support a cat charity. The cat cafe in Rhyl helps rehome abandoned and unwanted cats. We visited today and had the pleasure of meeting several Cats and Kittens that were so lovely. I’d got to drive home today so it helped relax me before we set out. They also do delicious pancakes and coffee so it was a win win really. X
It’s been a long day. We went to the seaside to visit a relative but when we went to the sea it was fenced off! Apparently there is work being done on the sea defences to protect the coast from flooding.
That was really disappointing but we did visit a friendly ‘cat cafe’ which was lovely. The cats and kittens are being well looked after and it was very calming after a long drive.
I finally got a photo of the cats eye… Its still red, but the iris is showing more clearly now and the transparency is coming back a bit although it is still slightly cloudy. His eye looks wet as I had just put the drops in. I will keep looking after him (he hates it, he really does squirm). He should be going down the vets in the morning.
Take a photo of your cats eye said the vet on Tuesday. Then we will be able to compare how it’s changing.
Good idea, the cat injured its eye when it disappeared (trapped in a shed /garage) and they need to know if it’s improving. But, my cat keeps closing his eyes when I go near. Either in a friendly way, or because I’m advancing on him with eye drops.
So, all I can say is that it is improving slowly. He’s avoided having the drops a few times and he’s managed to lick out the antibiotic tablets I’m giving him a few times. It’s frustrating but I just have to do what I can. X
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was based on the prompt ‘reflection’. I hadn’t got much time, so I based this on a mirrored photo of one of my cats, the little female one.
I took the liberty of changing the colour to hold with different patterns on each cats coat. The hearts are for how much I love my cats, I also feel it looks a bit like a playing card.
Since he came home, I’ve had to give my cat eye drops and antibiotics. Every day he sits a bit further away from me. He is a bit more wary, nervous. It’s not surprising. Yesterday he was checked over by a vet and given another lot of antibiotics. I understand why, he needs them to help him heal. But it doesn’t make it any easier. If he wasn’t such a patient cat I don’t know what I would have done…. X
You know when it’s time to go to the vets… When your cat dissappears!
Cue manic search under cupboards (I was sure he’d gone upstairs), then when that was no good we widened the search outside, our wooded garden, the neighbours, the alleyways, calling, shouting, bellowing… Then another look round the house. I even thought I’d take a cat toy on a string to chuck under cupboards and tempt him out? Then crreeeeaakkk, out bedroom door.. He came out? Where does he hide? Cat space! A quantum space that only cats can squeeze into….? Now he’s sitting in the sun on a box… Vets in thirty minutes. Wish him luck!
He’s getting better
And I’m waiting.
For when his eye is better
Than it is now
For when his mouth has healed.
For when his fur is clean.
White as snow and black as charcoal.
Happy again, healthy and healed.
What am I thinking
What am I doing?
Staying up late again.
What is that?
The cat fighting the cat flap!
She’s allowed out
But she can’t always get back in
A bit to small and thin!
The stray cat smashed
The cat flap
Now it’s held together with
glue and tape.
We need a new one.
Late night thoughts…
For the first time since he came home my cats managed to eat soft solid cat food (he’d been drinking water and cat milk and yesterday he had cat pate and cat soup mixed together) . He’s tried eating his regular biscuits but struggled as they were too hard for his sore mouth.
Overall he still looks a mess, but I’m really pleased to see an improvement. I’m proud of him. X
