Angel Has Dogs. Warm For Winter

I finally bought the girls jerseys to wear at night!
They are outside dogs, and there were some nights this winter when my girls really needed their jerseys. They're black fleece doggy jerseys with white bones on them and the girls look so cute in them!!
I was terrified that I would buy jerseys and the girls wouldn't want to wear them, but they were quite happy when I put them on, and sat patiently every night when I put them on and when I took them off in the mornings.

I'm worried about him.
I'm taking him to the vet this morning 'coz his one eye is all swollen up and he's grumpy as all hell. He's got a lump on the back of his neck too and he seems healthy most of the time... but he's clearly not himself.

Six Months Old!

Today, Turk and Diva are 6 months old.
They were born on January 14th 2010.
I can hardly believe how time has flown and I can't believe how they've grown!

Turk has definitely changed the most and grown the most. He's simply exquisite. I weighed him this morning & he tipped the scales at 4kg!

Diva remains one of the most beautiful cats I've ever seen, and she gets prettier as she gets older. And she's still half Turk's size!

Today Turk and Diva will also be neutered and spayed respectively, and they'll be microchipped so that I can add them to our pets' medical insurance. Turk's neutering is definitely easier on him than poor Diva's operation, but I like our vet a lot so I'm not worried about them. Our vet waits until the cats are 6 months old before spaying or neutering, and then she microchips them while they're under anaesthetic.

Diva, queen of the castle!
See how much bigger Turk is than Diva!?

Bathroom Cats!

I dunno bout your cats- but mine love my bathroom!
They know my daily routine, so when my alarm goes off in the morning and I head for the bathroom to go through my morning routine, Taxi and Turk follow me in. Sometimes Diva comes too, but she likes to snuggle with a warm body.

While I’m in the bathroom, Turk and Taxi will play catch in the bath, play with the water droplets running down the inside of the shower door, wrestle the bath mat, traipse wet pawprints all over my basin, attempt to catch the water coming out of the tap, and gaze longingly through the narrowly open window at the birds bouncing around outside!

More often than not, Turk will alternate between walking a figure-eight between my ankles and talking to me, and curling up on the damp bathmat… and Taxi will sit as close to me as he can on the edge of the bath while I do my make up and brush my teeth.

Apparently, a lot of cats like bathrooms and the cool of tiles or damp towels... but there are lots of opinions as to why.

They're 24 Weeks Old Already!

Technically that makes then 6 months old, but there's still 2 weeks till July 14th when they'll be 6 months old to the day.

Once they're 6 months old they'll be going for their microchips and for Diva to be spayed and Turk to be neutered. Then they'll be added to our Petsure insurance as well, which can only happen when they have their microchipped.
Yes. My cats have a medical aid.
