Ruby

Unfortunately Ruby has gone gone missing and we’re assuming short of a miracle, (hopefully someone finding her), that she hid sometime overnight Thursday to early Friday morning before I got up to go to work. I had woken early enough that I was able to spend an hour trying to find as I needed to give her an insulin injection first thing in the morning but hadn’t been too worried until I got home and she was still gone ๐Ÿ™

She had gone down hill quite a bit in the last year and the last time she had been to see the vet he had said that he was surprised that she had held on as long as she had. I am still feeling guilty about it all of course.

Photos

Last week I got a ridiculous number of photos I took as a kid and teenager from my parents. A lot of them are of various pets they/we had over the years, which is actually nice to have copies of. I have been very slowly scanning them and uploading them here so I could a few copies of them floating around just in case.

Orlando, who we had when I was a child and pre-teen.
My parents first dog Sam, who they got when I was a baby.
My parents second dog Jake, who they got when I was a teenager.

Cat photos! :)

I have been saving photos of my various cats over the years on the site – I do have a separate folder away from the WordPress blog where I’ve uploading the photos as well as posting them on my blog.

Current cat: Ruby, who technically belongs to my brother but has mostly moved in with me. She’s a Burmese, who can be more than a bit grumpy and stand offish, plus has a tendency to bite or scratch when she’s had enough of a person or something. Plus she has increasingly bad arthritis in her shoulders which isn’t helping things ๐Ÿ™

My previous cat: Medea, who I got from the SPCA with my then flatmate when I was living on Wellington. Unfortunately she started going down hill health wise in 2014 and by Easter 2015 was mostly refusing to eat among other health issues she was in and out of the vet for, so… ๐Ÿ™

My parents’ previous cats: Harry (the ginger cat) and Pitch (the black cat), who they got when I was a teenager and still living at home so I’ve always considered them semi-mine too. (I’ve been saving their photos to this site as I had a lot of physical photos I’ve been scanning and then up-loading).
