Cat loving has been in my family for generations but the past 20 years or so I have taken a preference to cat size dogs, regardless of what pet people have I think its great that people have fun with and love them to pieces  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Last week I was walking the dog along a local cycle/ walking path
when I found 10 note, that cheered me up no end.
Invested the money in 3 pints of Old Peculier. :D

After having a good old whinge at Sky for taking 11 months to move my phone line rental to them we agreed compensation. I wanted the difference for each month between the 2 line rentals, about 27.50 in total. On Wednesday a very arrogant 'customer service' rep offered me 10 as I couldn't prove that I'd chased it up every month. I took the 10 but said I may appeal. On Saturday a very nice lady called me unaware of the 10 offer. She couldn't believe how little he had offered when I told her. She offered me free multiroom (which was recently fitted free) for 12 months worth 123 and also dropped my phone line rental to 3 per month for 12 months, another 138 saving. So, a total of 271 saved when they could have given me 27.50 and I would have been happy  :claphappy:

Our 13 1/2 year old dog was reprieved last night! She's not been well for a few days and we thought it was her last night, but before the vet arrived, she started to pick up a bit. He said it would be wrong to put her to sleep while she is still enjoying life a bit. I am relieved and amazed at the same time. What a tough old girl she is!

Good for her, BB!

Our 19 year old moggy is a very special member of the family. She's wobbly with clicky bones and poor eyesight but we are so happy when she greets us at the bottom of the stairs each morning.

Her 'doc' lives next door so she gets very personal service without the stress of visits to the surgery.

With you on that, we have a 14 year old cairn terrier and a 13 year old collie cross that continue to amaze us in agility (well intrest in food at least). Long may all of the canine geriatrics survive !
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

We have an 18 year old Maine Coon cat called Molly. Her eyesight is fine and she can still jump the fence to get round the front of the house! She is going deaf though and her digestion ain't what it was ;) She can still give our 8 year old tom Tigger a clout if he annoys her  ;D

We currently have a 16 year old, one eyed Tom Tabby who although getting on is still quite an active lad, normally seen on our neighbours shed roof trying to pester birds, never gets any as hes quite docile.
We also have a 16 year old cross breed dog (part whippet with something else) and shes starting to feel her age, quite slow and really takes her time with food, but we all love them to pieces.
OK who took my cake?

If it was a dog, it would just sniff the printer, then pee on it!

We have reached 1/2 term and I'm driving to Scotland tomorrow at the crack of dawn... Just when they've had their first snowfall! I don't believe it! Hoping to do the rail journey between the Kyle of Lochalsh and Inverness - probably in a diesel, as I doubt they'll be steaming at this time of year?

Wish us luck!
