Cats on Tuesday - Posky had acupuncture!

Posky went for his first acupuncture treatment last night with a very nice Vet called Linda.  He was an absolute star and didn't make a murmur the whole time, just lay there and lapped up all the fuss he was getting.  Linda explained that because they don't know how individual animals will react to the treatment, the first time they only use a minimum of needles.  Posky had about eight that went over his shoulders and over the base of his spine.  We were rather worried that he seemed so quiet on the journey back, but once home he wolfed down a dish of food and seemed none the worse for his adventure.  In fact after a while I said to David that he looked perkier and seemed to be walking more easily, and David said he'd been thinking the same thing.  Posky goes back for a second treatment next week - so far we're really pleased with how it's gone.  I took a few photos but they're not brilliant as I wanted to concentrate on making sure Posky didn't get stressed, but you can see how chilled-out he looks!

Imprisoned in the cat carrier waiting to go in...

You can just see the white ends of the needles in his fur... 

What a star!

What a star, indeed! So glad the needles seem to be helping. I'm surprised the vet could see where to put them in, with that lovely thick coat!

Have you submitted your homework? I'm thinking of using a birch wood scene, taken about four miles from here. I'll go and check out the other stuff first, though! :o)

I've a new blog post up (I know - only just over a month since the last one!)
