You're early

I have had a bit of an emotional day today.

I suppose I should have realised it was going to be 'one of those days' when just after 8am the oil man, who wasn't supposed to be delivering the heating oil until tomorrow turned up early so the gates (electric) were shut and he couldn't get in. Thankfully he came down the road and into the field to find me - nice man!

At lunchtime I had to ring the vets, one of my cats Twiggy hasn't been herself for a few days, but she was eating and drinking and didn't have a temperature so I've been keeping a close eye on her.

Today though she has not been at all herself so we've been to the vets. Twiggy is my baby and I love her dearly, she's 16 years old and has been through a lot in her life. I am hoping and praying that the blood tests don't reveal anything nasty, but I'm not looking forward to that call in the morning. She is still purring in my arms so I'm not giving up hope.

On a much brighter note I thought I'd share with you a few more photo's. Her is Star with her male entourage of Duke and Sandstorm. This was one of the various attempts we had at halter training.
Fleece shots were proving a little difficult, a third pair of hands would have been handy, but here is Sandstorms fleece, I think I should have used the flash as this doesn't do him justice.
Here we have Kealani having a munch on the hay.

Will be thinking of you and hope the call is not bad news...it does always surprize me how resilient cats can be.

P.S. Sandstorm has just sent me a message saying that he wants to live at Beck Brow!!

The fleece shot is good - they are very tricky and I haven't managed one yet! I hope the news on Twiggy is good.
