Weeelllllll ........

...... we had an interesting couple of hours administering the worm pill.

You'd think after three years it wouldn't be such a big deal.  I won't go into the excruciating detail, but there was a good outcome and the evil medicine was eventually swallowed - albeit covered in cat spit and fur. 

All I know is that now one of us can step confidently into the helminth infested world, safe in the knowledge that they are protected from every tape-hook-whip-heart worm and nematode known to man.  Problem is, I don't think it's necessarily going to be the cat? 

Oh and just in case you were worried, the Aged P didn't need to have stitches after all, but she's booked in for six sessions with the trauma therapist starting next month. 

So I would say that on the whole it was a resounding success.

Note to self:  I wonder if they do catnip flavoured ....... ?


  1. All in all I'd say your day was a huge success! I smiled the whole time I was reading your post!!!!

  2. Worm pill, yikes.
    Quick note to invite you to hop over to my blog where I'll ad updates regarding Jan at Animal Talk, my SIL so you can keep informed on her condition post surgery.

  3. I'm sure you may have heard this before, but your beautiful cat reminds me so much of Mr. Mistoffelees!

    I stumbled across your blog by accident but it looks like a great read, looking forward to your future posts!

  4. Thanks for popping by :>) yes he is beautiful isn't he. I think the original Mr Mistoffelees as written by Eliot was totally black, but adaptations were made for the stage show. Austin is definitely the "original conjuring cat" though! Always duping me with his sleight of paw lol

  5. btw..u dont have to use worming pills anymore
    they do them the same as frontline,liquid on back of the neck
    muchhhhhhh easier

  6. Hi Cyn, that's news to me and the vet!! He never gave me that option. Will definitely try it, tho he really does not like the back of the neck either, he goes all growly and hides in corners. But at least he can't spit it out! x


We LOVE to hear from you! :)
