    My best little buddy, Freddie. Not the sharpest tool in the box by any means, and sits firmly at the bottom of the pecking order because he's a bit of a wimp. But he's my wimp, and my shadow when I'm at home. As soon as I get in bed he's on me purring so hard that he chirps. He knows where safe is, where the other three can't pick on him. He's also the only one bothered by things like fireworks, but as long as he can come and curl up with me he's quite happy.

    Not great, not terrible. (Not actually seen Chernobyl yet, but I'm familiar with the quote!)

    He's a lot better for the treatment - much happier, putting on weight, it's great. There's a chance he might end up being hypothyroid, in which case he'll need thyroxin supplements, and we need to follow up on an elevated white blood cell count - but so far, so good!

    I watched the last part this week, EPIC stuff! It's worth the effort to watch it all, amazingly filmed and an incredible take on one of the most amazing stories of the last few decades. /drama distraction
    More importantly, you have a happy and treated moggie and not spent £1,000s doing it.
    My sister's cat was run over, suffered a broken jaw, and lost an eye; she won't tell me what they spent, but I think it's north of £2.5k...
    I'll try and find a pic of her, she's amazing, other than a bit wobbly initially running along fences and getting through gaps.

    Yeah, vet fees can get crazy. This would have been north of £3k without insurance - and that's after the £2k-plus I spent on his urinary tract problem last year. Thankfully, I'm only on the hook for 10% - and a big shout-out to Sainsbury's Pet Insurance (basically Allianz, which according to the on-hold tape is pronounced "Allie-Anz" and not like "alliance but with a Z" as I'd assumed) which has so far yet to complain about a single claim.

    Pups are now 3 months old. The 2 red and white have gone to new homes, one went down to Essex and the other to Barnard Castle which is local.
