Two weeks ago Jacky hurt his left hind leg. Luckily not too bad but enough to need to visit the vet and have the wound cleaned and stitched up. Yesterday the vet removed the stitches. Oh how happy he was to get rid of the cone 🙂
When I’m on the computer Jacky usually is laying either on the desk between the screen and the keyboard or on the shelf beside me. It doesn’t take him long to fall asleep. Here he is on the shelf.
It’s so much more fun to sleep under the mattress than on it 😀Oops, sorry ! I didn’t want to wake you.
I read about this book on two different blogs I follow. The other one is Katzenworld and the other Rohvannyn, Mindflight who also does have a story in it. I ordered it online from Adlibris and it arrived last week. I began reading it in the beginning of this week and have, so far, read two stories. I am sure I will like all of the stories and the illustrations are so very cute. Good thing is. Each book purchased will help support work of International Cat Care. Today I saw Jacky using the book as a pillow when napping. My husband says he thinks I should, every evening, read one story at bedtime for Jacky.
In the spring we talked to the vet about when to have Jacky castrated. I asked should it had been done already because I read it’s usually, now a days, done at an much earlier age than we have had it done to our other cats. Usually by the time they show signs of marking their territory. He said it’s okay to have it done later. Come back after the summer vacations. On Wednesday we took him there and had the procedure done. The vet said he needs to wear the plastic collar for twelve days. I don’t think none of our other cats needed to wear a collar for that many days. But, if it’s how it must be then be it. He soon learned how to master the thing. I’m afraid he thinks he must wear it for the rest of his life. I tell him every evening only so many more days and you will get rid of it. I bet he will be ever so happy when we take the collar off. Only eight more days to go.
Jacky loved to jump up onto the laundry drying rack and walk it back and forth. He did that for several times a day. He also loved to lay there to watch our doings from above. Now the drying rack is so out !
The old apple tree now is “the in thing”. He is up there many times a day. He climb as high up as possible. I see the thinner branches bend under him and it makes me worry he will fall. My husband suggested we cut it all down ! Yesterday our son put a shelf halfway up into the tree. The idea is he will stay there and not go further up the tree. Doesn’t it look like he is, at least for now, very pleased with the shelf.
