Goodnight sweet Bella

18th August 2005 – 26th March 2015   They say memories are special, maybe it is true, but I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. A million times I needed you, a million times I cried, if love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. I…

Cindy’s eye ulcers: an ongoing issue

Cindy’s eye ulcers appear to be an ongoing issue.  The day after I took this photograph (24th February 2011), Cindy was diagnosed with yet another eye ulcer – this time it was in her left eye. The day had started off quite normal.  Both Cindy and Bella were their usual… 

Beautiful Bella

Bella and Cindy aged 5½ years old

It’s been a long time since I took photos of the furbabies using a proper camera so today, I decided to rectify this.  For those of you who are new to my site, Bella is a black British Short Hair and her sister, Cindy is a black smoke (but looks… 

A Tribute to Mittens

Whilst updating parts of my blog, it occurred to me that I hadn’t read the diary I had created when Mittens was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus for quite a long time. I don’t know why this popped into my head. Perhaps it was because part of the tidy up included… 

The Eye Ulcer Is Back!

Since just before Christmas, Cindy has been rather snuffly.  It was most noticeable when she was eating as she sounded like she was snorting.  David and I originally put this down to her having a cold as we had heard her sneezing occasionally.  However, we are now into January and… 

Surprised Cindy

Cindy and Feline Eye Ulcers

It may not be obvious in my photos but Cindy has a rather flat face and with it, comes the usual problem of the occasional weepy eye. Back in May 2009, we noticed that Cindy’s right eye seemed to be especially weepy. So much so that it seemed to be… 

What is it about catnip?

What is it about catnip that makes cats go crazy?  Mittens adored it, Cindy adores it but curiously, Bella can take or leave it. Mittens preferred it fresh and was forever bruising the plant we grew for her.  Cindy however, seems to prefer dried catnip that has been stuffed in… 

Mittens – Our very best friend

Gone across the Rainbow Bridge but never forgotten.  We gave you love but you can only imagine the happiness you gave us I first met Mittens back in 1996 when I started dating my husband.   She was his cat, I had never ever owned a pet (unless goldfish count?) and…

Bella and Cindy – the Kitten Years

On 1st December 2005, I brought home two tiny little balls of fluff.  They were 3 month old british short hair kittens.  The black one, we named Bella and the Black Smoke, we called Cinders, Cindy for short.  These two little sisters swiftly wormed their way into our hearts and…
