One last trip…

One last trip…

I have waited to post this blog on here for a while as now it seems real that we are a One Pet family, for the first time in a long time.

Tillie soldiered on to the end ignoring that she had no kidney function left at all and even ate some cat treats when at the vets, but it was to be her final trip to the vets as we didn’t want to wait until she started to show any signs of pain or distress. read more about our journey together here

Unwelcome guests

Unwelcome guests

I’ve always held an admiration for some parasites. They are tiny superheroes whose entire existence is to put in minimal effort to get the maximum out of living off others.

And now on Radio 4 … The Archers

I apologise in this blog if you aren’t an Archers fan, I know this daily 13 minutes of radio can be divisive.

Although since this blog a ‘vet nurse’ has been mentioned… when a fractious cat needed handling! Love it!

When the time comes…

April was a sad month for us as our beloved Tillie (pictured with me) was put to sleep. She was an absolute trooper of cat with multiple health issues, but she was bright and eating until the end.

This was oddly the most guilt free passing of any of our pets and we worked hard with her care team to get the timing just right. She will be much missed by us all.
