Another cat week gone by! And another guest appearance (which just goes to show how kitties are queueing up to get their faces on the interwebz). Those with long memories may remember Dora the pumpkin farm cat from a couple of years ago when she gracefully sat on a pumpkin. The pumpkin farm has moved location but thankfully Dora went too, and on Saturday we became reacquainted. This time she'd decided to go to sleep in the middle of the pumpkin shed floor so that people had to step around her.
We also heard about the sad death of Old Cat. Old Cat was about twenty two and lived with the nice receptionist who works at the vets. She was a little tortie who used to like to frighten people in the street, and who once made David drive our car up on the pavement to get around her as she refused to move from the road.

tastefully lit by our Halloween fairy lights.
Meanwhile back at the Jackson residence... Charlie now has his own glucometer in a fetching shade of purple. Sunday was spent jabbing his paw every couple of hours, and he behaved very well in the morning. By the afternoon he'd got fed up especially as his paw refused to give up any blood and had to be jabbed at repeatedly.
We He now has a reprieve for a couple of weeks until we repeat the afternoon tests, as his glucose was quite a bit higher because of the stress by this time (as were mine and David's) compared to the morning.
And finally... this Thursday sees the return of Black Cat Awareness Day. Did you know that black cats are often overlooked in rescue centres and take longer to rehome than cats of other colours? Cats Protection now have an annual event because of this, and you can join in by taking a photo of yourself (or your intended victim) transformed into black cats. See their Facebook page for more info.
For more kitties of all colours, see Gattina's Cats on Tuesday.
