Is it just me or do you also ever have those days when you secretly wish you were still a singleton AND had no animals – or at least animals that didn’t wake you up at “sparrows’ fart”? ...read more

Last night I had literally just sunk into bed and breathed that wonderful sigh of relief at the end of a long day when I heard that special Sammy whine. Arrgggghhhh!

Talk about a heart-stopping moment – and not because it was such a beautiful bird. ...read more

I’ve always had a “fancy cat” in my life, be it a Siamese, Burmese or Oriental, who was part of my happy mix of “just plain moggies”. But, by the beginning of 2014, all my beloved golden oldie cats had passed on. I felt very blessed that they’d all made it – or as close as dammit – to the ripe old age of 18 years… but oh, how I missed them in my life. ...read more
