♩♪♫♬ We wish you a merry Christmas etc ♩♪♫♬

Boy, do I ever feel stupid!!!

Anyway just escaped popped out from amidst all the jollifications to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a healthy and peaceful new year.

with purrs and head bonks
Austin xx 

PS I have instructed the staff that she has to do better with my blogging and visiting and stuff.  After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single cat in possession of a good story must be in want of an audience!

Vet visit - The "Procedure"

I just thought I would give an update on Austin's op which he had this morning. I delivered one very vocal and hungry little tux to the surgery at 9 a.m. On the journey there I heard a complete Handel oratorio, with Austin singing all the parts! The carrier was rocking! (Note to self. Get ear defenders!) I went home and bit my nails until 2 p.m. when I rang and was told that he had come round from the anaesthetic and was fine :)

When I went at 4 p.m. to pick him up I could hear him before I went through the door!!! I think it was something from Iron Maiden this time (he has eclectic tastes!). The nurse told me that he had quite a story to tell her when he came to and still hadn't quite finished thank you, but wasn't he a sweetie! :)

Funnily enough he was quiet all the way home, but I could feel his beady eye boring into my soul. Then once he was in the house he started up again and didn't let up until about half an hour ago. Ok Austin, I've got the message … Give me a break why don't you!!!

(The vet had to cut away quite a bit of gum, but says everything went to plan. He's on antibiotics and eating well. I have to take him back in about ten days for a check up.)

Thanks everyone for your purrs and good thoughts. They are really appreciated and I hope we will be back proper blogging very soon :)

BTW we have been given another star for our Blog of the Year badge from the lovely Cathy Keisha :) Thank you very much indeed. We now have four :)

Blog Vacation

This is just to say that Austin and I are taking a bit of a break from blogging for a few days and also from visiting and commenting. It's a case of recharging batteries. We really appreciate all the lovely friends we have made in the pet blogosphere and hope you understand. We will see you again before too long x0x
