Christmas time....

.....mistletoe and wine! Well more whine than mistletoe as the girls have turned the radio up a little louder than usual and switched it onto smooth christmas!! There are chocolates and biscuits everywhere and not a single one is for me! Cheese and onion crisps on the other hand... The diets of the last few weeks have gone out the window as the bin is over flowing with paper wrappers that I'm not allowed to play with, but they don't know that I sometimes pull them out of the bin and play with them around the prep room. On a lighter note, those two young cell mates of mine have finally gone to a new home just in time for christmas which means I only have to spend my christmas with the black thing.... Not so merry for me! However while on my rounds I stumbled onto a present that had mine and wibbles name on it, if they think I'm going to share it with her they're wrong! Tomorrow night I'm logging on to Norad track Santa to count down the hours until he leaves my presents that I'm not allowed to share with Wibble because I have been informed that she is on the naughty list this year! Well goodbye for now and hope everyone has a merry christmas and a happy new year.

It has come to my attention that I have been implicated in the abduction and misappropriation of a small reptile. One small Corn Snake. I would just like to say that anyone who knows me knows I love snakes.

Can't eat a whole one though.

Not being ignored now, eh?

I am sorry, but this is beyond a joke now. There's kittens everywhere....AND I AM BEING IGNORED!!!!!

Myspace...., not the website - I just need some. The cat room is now filled with babies and half witted black cats. And, no, she still hasn't grasped the concept of transparency as it applies to window glass! Well, at 4 degrees it's too cold to to spend the night outside, so, do you know, I've had to resort to hiding - yes hiding, in my own home to avoid being banged up with that lot or freezing to death!! Still, the waiting room wasn't so bad. As long as I keep my head down at the end of evening surgery they can't seem to find me behind the food bags on the waiting room stand. I don't move much when I'm settled, so the burglar alarm can't see me! Not 5 star, but better than the alternative choices of Bedlam and my best Scott of the Antarctic impression! Or was it the Arctic, I can never remember.

As if it isn’t enough that I have to share my home with that black thing, but now they’ve gone ahead and decided to house some kittens here as well! Apparently Dexter has agreed to help the RSPCA re-home some kittens… Well nobody asked me my opinion! The black thing has also been acted strangely and is still trying to catch me through a window, the dozy cat!

A Window On The World

There I was, sitting, watching the rain under the porch, when, behind me,. BANG. Now, of course, I knew she was there all along, but I worked out long ago that although you can see through windows, you can't actually jump through them, unless they're open!! A real Tom and Jerry moment, with small black cat with flat nose sliding down the glass. I still can't work out whether Wibble actually learns these things, and retains them for the usual 6 seconds, or never learns them in the first place.

In the bad books again!

So the nice man from National Veterinary Supplies came and delivered the practices order. Angela was half way through checking  it when she heard a box of chocolates being opened by Tam and Dexter in the prep room so I thought I would help her out as it was rather a large delivery. I jumped in the box to find that the nurses had ordered me a cat toy loaded with my favourite catnip!! So I showed my appreciation by playing with it and dribbling all over it only to be told that it wasn't mine after all!!  Woops in trouble again!!!

New pets on the block!

Hello Snot, you don't know me but I know lots about you from the lady in reception at Oxley Park.
She tells me your top cat, thought you might like to know about the strange goings on here today.
There I was minding my own business, looking for some where to have my morning nap. I was considering the practice waiting room until I saw this!!!

What do you make of this then?
Purrs & licks

BVNA Veterinary Nursing Week 17-23rd July

Won't they just be full of it! A whole week dedicated to them. We won't hear the last of this! What about the " Hard Working, Meeting and Greeting, Black and White Long Haired Vermin Control Operative Week", that's what I want to know?

In, out, in, out

First it's sunny, then it's raining, then it's sunny again, then it isn't. I can't tell whether I'm coming or going sometimes. Stayed in, in the end, and did some meeting and greeting. Well, one has to be seen to be earning a crust doesn't one?

Whose Birthday?

Not that I'm bitter......... but I turned 11 on Monday and no-one remembered! I wasn't expecting a great celebration with balloons, cake or banners but a little recognition would have been nice. Still, I did have a black thing (Wibble) free night on Monday as she decided to stay out for the night.  That alone was something worth celebrating. Oh well perhaps they'll make it up to me next year! 

Everyone has been very busy recently with Vaccination Amnesty month in May and now in June it's National Identichip Month. Lots of pets are coming in for chipping so that they can be identified should they get lost and more importantly they can be reunited with mum & dad.

Will sign off now as the sun has moved round and I need re-adjust my sleeping position.

Warm days, waiting room windows open, I can come and go as I please. Am I getting older, or have they raised the height of the window sills?

Spring is on it's way at last! It seems that the neighbourhood is back under control.  No more challenges to my superiority.

My only challenger is the black thing I am forced to live with! She certainly has her moments, especially when she has been on the old catnip!! But put her outside and she's not so brave then. Scared of her own shadow then she is!!

The girls here are disappointed with her too. We now have a demonstration model of one of those new fangled cat flap things. You know the ones, the ones that only let through cats that have their microchips recognised by the flap. They're supposed to stop unwanted visitors coming in and eating all your food. Well, the girls have programmed Wibble's chip to be recognised so she can be used as a demonstrator. Will she play ball? Will she heck!! Won't go near it! I do wonder sometimes as to why she is here. She's not been in a movie like me. Well, it may have only been a training video but it felt like a movie to me!!

Oh well back to my hectic lifestyle.

Who's in charge here?

Well, that was a busy few weeks. You wouldn't believe it would you. Four weeks away and the locals have really got above themselves. Hunting my vermin, territory marking my foliage. Give me strength!

Still, think I've managed to point out the error of their ways. And do you know, one of them wanted to argue the toss about it. Gave me a swollen leg! Nothing that five days penicillin couldn't deal with though.

You should have seen the other bloke!

Wibble - absolutely zero help as usual. She actually runs away from leaves. Not much use in a tight spot that one. Not much use for anything to be honest.
