What I did on Hogmanay

Happy New Year everybody!

Last night I had an unexpected trip to the vets with Cassius, our first rescue cat who's been with us nearly 2 years now. He was having trouble passing water, and seemed to be in some discomfort. A quick call to the vet confirmed that we needed to get him seen as quickly as possible, so at about 6.30pm, in driving sleet, I whisked him over to Broadleys Veterinary Hospital in Stirling. They found some crystals in his urine, so he's on a course of anti-biotics and anti-flammatory drugs, and will be assessed at the end of the course.

Homer's purr

A big breakthrough this afternoon with our new rescue cat, Homer. We got him just a week ago from the Clackmannanshire Cats Protection League who took him in as a stray. They think he's about 10.

He was depressed having been in their shelter for 3 months, very subdued, and a little underweight. He's staying in our spare room, where he will probably be for some weeks and maybe months while he builds up his strength and gets on his feet again. Then the fun of introducing him to the rest of the menagerie will begin...
