I was considering changing the title of this post to Sloths on Tuesday as this is all the cats seemed to be interested in doing...
However all was not lost! First of all Mrs P spent the day at the vets on Friday (an experience neither of them want to repeat any time soon), and after a war of attrition, they finally got a urine sample from her. The results came back today and her kidneys are still fine so no more renal meds for the immediate future! Hurrah for her! To celebrate I'm reposting the rather dramatic portrait I took of her at the weekend, this time in colour.
Mrs P - she makes vets scream...
Pepper then came through by appearing in the garden when I was trying to get a shot for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. First of all she pranced about and then tried to get in on the photo (she was 'persuaded' to vacate the shot with a yell of 'Look out! Charlie's mauling the Buddha!').
'Ooh look! A Camera!'
'Why are your trousers rolled up? Are you joining the freemasons or something?'
Then the competition really hotted up. We went to the meditation centre in Kelmarsh in Northants for lunch on Sunday, and spotted the elusive Kelmarsh Panther! (David was very jealous as TKP actually came up to me and let me stroke him whilst studiously ignoring David. This is only to be expected of course as cats always show excellent taste in the humans they befriend).
'I can kill you with these eyes...'
And finally, tonight when I was trying to take a photograph involving some strawberries (look, it's just something I had to do ok?), Charlie appeared and started taking an unhealthy interest in my props. He doesn't like strawberries or the soya yogurt they had on top of them so I've no idea what he was up to. Anyway, to save them from him I had to eat them. It's tough being a photographer.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the garden...
