Fireworks and me!

I am sorry Ise not blogging for a while but Meowmie has been so busy and just not had the time to help me...what a selfish woman she can be sometimes! I'll be round in the next day to catch up with you all! :)

Well, as you can see from my title today, I think my cystitis - or whatever it was - might be gone! In fact when we got back from seeing Charlie Vet and having the anti-biotic injections on Friday, I didnt show any more of the symptons I had been showing that morning, and I haven't done so since either! I had my last anti-biotic pill last night and am going to see Ben Vet tomorow for a check-up. I have also had a record-breaking run of no sick-ups! I have not been sick since Friday morning!!! That is FIVE days - the longest I have been without any sicks for quite some time! I guess my lactulose is working along with the exclusion diet.

We just had Guy Fawkes night here in the YooKay, it was on November 5th. Sometimes it is called Bonfire Night too. It is an annual event and celebrates the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot of the 5th of November 1605 in which a number of Roman Catholic conspirators, including Guy Fawkes, attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

Bonfire night involves fireworks displays and the building of bonfires on which "guys" are burnt (although this is more rare nowadays). These "guys" are traditionally effigies of Guy Fawkes, the most famous of the Gunpowder Plot conspirators. As you imagine November 5th and the days leading up to it are not exactly relaxing for us poor little pets! Outdoor pets should be kept in on the 5th and indoor kitties should be provided access to their favourite hiding places cos the sounds of all the fireworks is very scary and very loud! Cos we live in Central London we have to suffer the sounds of the giant firework displays as well as the little local and private displays too! Meowmie loves them though and finks they are very pretty.

Oh...Meowmie J's neighbour is taking her siamese cat (Manson) to the vet today - he is having his doo-dahs removed cos he keeps trying to make babies with his own SON!!!! Please send him some purrs!

Purrs for Manson (both for his operation and for his confusion).

I am glad you are well Storm!

Purrs for peace.

Oh the terror!!! I would not do well with all of that at all. Nope, I don't like loud noises.

Maybe Manson is gay??? We'll see what happens after.... It is good to have the doo-dahs removed anyways - too many kittens in this world without home!
Congratulations!!! I am soooo happy to hear that you are o.k.!
So remember:
Don't forget the Dare - only one more day before the voting begins!
