I guess many of you already both have heard and read about James Bowen and his cat Bob. I learned about them from a Facebook friend of mine who wrote on her wall about how much she loved the book A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen about him and his cat. I immediately reserved the book from the library. Soon after I googled for more about them and found out there were at least two more books. I was happy to be able to reserve them as well. That was about three weeks ago. Last week I received a message that they were ready to be picked up. I now have finished reading all three of them. I, as my friend, loved the book (s). So glad things turned out for the better for them. So much looking forward to the film coming up soon.
The swans are back. They have been on the other side of the lake. I have been able to spot them like white dots but to hear them very well. On Tuesday (the day when Quam left us, I’m still very sad) when I came down to the beach they were here on this side, bobbing in the waves looking for food. When the other one was sticking his head in the other one kept his eyes on the surrounding, ready to warn if anything suspicious would occur.
We were at the vet with Quam in February because we thought there might be something wrong with his left upper fang because his lip looked swollen and he didn’t want to have any dry food at all. Also we noticed he had problem eating wet food. The vet told us the fang is healthy. Only it always has been in the wrong position which during the years has worsened. He suspected there might be an inflammation and gave us a prescription forantibiotics and pain killer. He said come back if he after some weeks still does not eat well. Yesterday we were back there. After he took a x-ray he said there is a molar which never erupted which is needs to be surgically removed. We left Quam there. They would call us when to pick him up. When back home Quam was so hungry. He looked at me and at the empty bowl. I had to explain that you cannot have anything until later. Despite the stitches he ate a lot later in the evening. So happy the bad tooth is away and all the teeth cleaned from tartar.
Spring is such a nice and inspiring time. You see the very first spring flower(s) in bloom. Followed by the next and the next kind of flower. In the morning these were, as you can see, just about to bloom. In the afternoon they all had opened. They are so cute. The ones in the last picture I spotted in a different place.
