Gone Fishing.... & Kitty Kat Poorly...

Hiya All...

I need to apologise for the lack of posts this week i've been terribly busy with my poorly kitty, Those of you who visit my blog know i have two puddy cats Apple & Strudel (some met strudel on his post last week).

Be warned a bit of a long post!

Well.... my nightmare began at 10pm sunday evening just as i was about to go to work i noticed strudel was in his litter tray with blood in it... ekkk! I had to go to work but panic set in whilst i was there i was sooo worried about him i couldn't concentrate got my self in a right mess whilst working thinking the worst as you do... anyways... i came home monday morning unsure what to do i'd read all sorts on the internet what it could be but i decided a trip to the vets was a defo!

I don't trust our normal vets they seem to be the type to think of us as a young couple and rip us off with excuses after excuses making us spend more, so i took him to another vets reccomended to me by my friend emma, and also where my mum's doggie is registered, i must admit they were fantastic, throughly explained everything too me!

After some tummy checks and a not so nice thermomitor up his bum (which i might add he did not aprove off!) hubby found it quite funny that's how they take a cats temp! he was sent home with a couple of injections some crystaid and me told to get a water sample!!!
(how simple is that with two cats???) so bearing in mind its now 2pm monday afternoon i've been up since 9pm sunday night... Strudies off into my bedroom with me so i can get some kip and a spare litter tray with special litter to enable me to get one for the vet.... meooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwww

pppppppppurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..... nooooo sleep wouldn't settle having apple outside bedroom door crying for him... 9pm monday night came no sign of being able to get a water sample, i had to go to work.... not only this but i've had to suringe water into his mouth every hour or so just to flush his system.... so off i trots to work, leaving him in my bedroom hoping to come back to a nice sample lol!!!

(gross i know!!) but it has to be done! come back tuesday morning after being up god knows how many hours and finally able to take his sample back to the vet for testing.... phone call at 10am Strudel has blood in his water! and larasites, (so off back to the vets for antibiotics...)

£75 later.... and it's now Thursday evening, his water is i think no longer bloody but he's wanting alot of love and cuddles, hubbys been off for two days looking after him, very sleepy cat but he seems to be on the mend, at least it's not crystals which is life threatening in a male cat! (which is why i paniced) i know you shouldn't have favourites but Strudie's my cat and i love him to bits lol

He's got to have another sample done tuesday for the vet to test so fingers crossed he'll get the all clear!

So yeah.... apologies for not being around at all! i've been looking after my cat! I've not managed to get any of my DT commitments done this week eeeek!! Don't forget to check out the fab new challenge at Charisma today! and the new challenge from Team Abi on saturday at sweet stampin' i'm hoping by middle of next week as i'm on holiday from work to be back to normal!!!

but for now i'll leave you with a card i created last week.... but before i do... look how comfy Strudies taken to my sofa poorly boy!


My Card today is one i created last week or so ago i've just not got around to posting it unfortunatly... been playing with my new fishing tilda, when i first saw her i thought what a fab stamp for a male card! even though she's female!!


I've used promarkers on today's card, a firm favourite medium of mine i must admit! Tho i am going for Copic Certification at the end of this year!! woo hoo i so can't wait i just need to save up for my full sets of copic sketches!!! very many pennys! hehe


I've added a few 3D elements to my card today including the fish at the end of tilda's rod and the fish bowl at the side, i came across these for 49p they were actually part of a set that i brought from the works in our local shopping center! fab bargain!

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:

Hope that Strudel is much better! Nothing worse that a sick animal, since they can't tell you where it hurts. Give him some loving from all of us.

Beautiful card. I hope your cat is soon feeling better. My daughter's nickname was Strudel when she was little.

Thanks for joining us at Creative Card Crew.
