Wordful Wednesday

Ever wondered what happens if you leave a small child alone with pens and yogurt.

I'm glad I now know!

There is an elephant on my heart

Today we said goodbye to Freddy. While being happy and active he had deteriorated over the past few days and was no longer eating. We had decided to keep him going until he no longer had quality of life and sadly this morning we decided that he had had enough.

Fred - you were the best cat we could have ever asked for and we thank you for years of love. We miss you xxx

Wordful Wednesday - Rocket

My Wordful Wednesday post today is to introduce 'Rocket' Even though we are yet to lose Fred I'm truly excited about the insanity that is about to join our family. Currently he has been named Rocket but I'm thinking we might be able to come up with something better.

What do you think? Suggestions?

In case anyone is wondering - Rocket is still in Christchurch waiting to fly up once Freddy is no longer with us.

Freddy Update

Well it's not looking good for the old boy. Steroids have perked him up for the past week and it's given me at least some time to get my head around losing him. We woke up this morning to him vomiting again so I'm guessing that the steroids are no longer having the same effect. He seems happy and has been outside today but I'm guessing that it will only be a couple of days before we make the decision to have him put down.

It seems a bit disrespectful to have already lined up our next furry addition to our family but I have! The thought of being cat-less was very sad and strangely deciding on a cat breed has given me some comfort.

What have we decided? A Havana!

I've been very lucky and have found a 4 month old boy who is ready and waiting for a home. There seems to be only 2 breeders in New Zealand. I spoke to the breeder this afternoon and is is happy for him to come and join us.
