R.I.P. Saysha

Heartbroken to say but Saysha lost her fight for life.  She had a massive heart failure.  Just 14 years of age (nearly).

You will be sorely missed xxx

Cat on Oxygen

Get well soon Saysha

Rush trip to the vet today and she was rushed straight into the theatre and put on oxygen.  I can only wait now.

Cat Heart Problems

Well I'm feeling a bit down this weekend.

What I thought was my cat being unable to rid itself of a fur ball seems to be more serious.  She is 14 years old and was the runt of the litter.  I've looked after her and nursed her through the many ups and downs of her life so far but I believe that this time I won't be able to make her better.

The rapid breathing, the listless and her quietness is really worrying me that she won't be around for much longer.

I am faced with a problem now.  She is by nature a shy and nervy cat who is only happy when she is at home, with us, and she hides from strangers.  By the very nature of the problem a vet would want, at the very least, to do an X-ray with probably scans and EKGs being the next on the list.  This would entail stays at the veterinary clinic; anesthetics, injections, strangers and being apart from us.

Having a daughter who is a Senior Vet Nurse does help but trying to decide what to do for the best is awful and heartbreaking.

My thoughts are with you all in Oslo today as you come to terms with the tragic bomb attack and the murder of all the young people on the island.

The utter terror cannot be imagined and the fact that we are not even safe from our own people is soul destroying.

Words are useless but our sincere condolences to all.

Two Chimneys Campsite

As summer is fading before its even begun our thoughts have turned to using up the last few days of our holiday allowance.

This year when we do our annual visit to my mum we are taking the trailer to a different campsite called Two Chimneys.  Based in Birchington, Kent, it is not too far from Ramsgate where my mum lives.

The reason for the change of site this year is mainly due to the amount of rain we have had this year.  There is no way our old campsite will allow us to park on their grass this year with our 26' fifthwheel trailer.  We would end up sinking into the ground!

Two Chimneys have hardstanding fully serviced pitches which include electricity, water, and drainage and all for £19 per night.  So at the end of September we are off to have our last little trip in our trailer before shutting it up for the winter.  Oh my that's making me sad - winter coming already.

Anyway for anyone wanting to take a look at this Hoseasons Campsite here is the link

I do love our trailer and it will be great to have another break even if it is only for a long weekend.
