I was at the dentist this past week and once again was struck by the batiks they have there, all framed up.
This one inspires me, I love the plant or tree at the front and the crazy bird shapes. I can SO see these shapes on a little quilt in bright colours, the shapes are such fun.
My eldest cat took to living on the kitchen worktop 2 or 3 weeks back. He seemed off colour and withdrew himself, so I humoured him and cleared a corner of the worktop for him.
He's since then, decided he's going to be sociable again and unusually, since he's always been still very much a semi feral, now comes for a lap sit each evening, so I'm very honoured.
He was one of 5 black kittens and a black queen cat that were all buggers to catch, beside a railway line years ago.
Mum was neutered and put back since she was W-I-L-D bless her.
One of her 4/5 month old kittens was neutered too and went back as well since he was a really mean young lad already.
There's a small manned railway line crossing where I trapped them all and the British rail guys took turns to feed the mum and her son.
But the other 4 kittens I felt could tame down when split up.
Three of them tamed down surprisingly quickly once split and worked on, one by one.
But Fergus here was somewhat resistant and lived for 5 months in the living room, determined not to be touched or stroked. He used a litter tray and ate well, then slowly, slowly I won him round. But he's not been domesticated really. He's just paid me lip service LOL
He must be feeling alot better because now he allows my other semi feral to snuggle in with him.
He's about 16+ and she's 11........and they both seem to have forsaken their spots in the dining room lol
I suppose a change is as good as a rest!
I think he's got thyroid issues so he's off in for bloods and then teeth cleaning next week and will most likely be on thyroid tablets after that.
Although Ive never managed to get tablets into him easily yet, so this could be a whole new experience for both of us....!
