I hate going away. Whether for work or pleasure, I always dread going away. I’ve been unlucky in my life when I go away, bad things have happened and it’s always reminded me that I’m happier at home. But today I have to go away for work, and it will be almost 10 days before I return. Gizmo is in the capable hands of my … Continue reading Blissful Ignorance!?
I never have any valentines day expectations, and this year was no different! I’m one of those humans that doesn’t look for big romantic gestures (which is lucky, as I would only be disappointed!!) but Gizmo seemed to take it upon himself to give me a surprise gift this year!? I guess he appreciates all the love and affection I’ve shown him over that past 12 … Continue reading Gizmos Valentines Surprise…?!
Yesterday was exactly a year since Gizmo came into my life. I can’t believe how fast the last year has gone!? When Gizmo first arrived, he was 5 months old, and so scared that he used to hide in the dark under the dining room table if he heard a noise, or if anyone dared breathe too loud. What a transformation from that timid little … Continue reading Gizmos Gotcha Anniversary
I seem to have a problem at the moment. For the last week, I’ve been woken up at least an hour early every day? I get up for work at 5am, but recently, I’ve been consistently woken up at 4am… Unfortunately for me, I can’t seem to reset the ‘timer’ as there are NO buttons to press, and there are NO batteries involved, it’s not … Continue reading Persistent Alarm Malfunction…?
As you may have read in a previous blog post, our Christmas celebrations were dampened by Gizmos ill health and hospitalisation at Penmellyn Veterinary Hospital. (Don’t worry, thanks to the wonderful veterinary team, Giz is feeling MUCH better now and making good progress at home). Before Christmas, you may remember that Gizmo wrote a letter to Santa asking for a cat tree. Basically, Gizmo had outgrown his … Continue reading Gizmo Got His Christmas Wish…
Its been a stressful festive period in my house. Not because of the pressure of Christmas, but because Gizmo, my beloved (and usually highly naughty) one year old cat, was quite poorly. And how did I know he was ill?! Well, he was being too well behaved; he hadn’t stripped my wallpaper or climbed my curtains for a few days and he didn’t want to play … Continue reading Not the festive period we hoped for…
For about a month, I have been dreading putting my Christmas Tree up. Hearing numerous horror stories from other cat owners, and seeing LOTS of photo and video evidence of cats demolishing trees and generally causing chaos, I will admit to having several sleepless nights worrying if my old (but faithful) tree would survive this festive season… Regular readers will know that Gizmo LOVES climbing … Continue reading Oh Christmas Tree, your days might be numbered…?!
Well, Christmas is nearly upon us. I cant believe how quickly this year has gone?! Gizmo has been making his own preparations for the festive season, by sending a letter to Santa, with some information on what he would like to receive this year?! As much as I think Gizmo deserves to receive his Christmas wish of a cat tree, I’m not sure Father Christmas … Continue reading Dear Santa, Please DONT read my blog… Love Gizmo x
As any cat owner will know, cats sleep a LOT, in a variety of unusual (often awkward looking) positions?!! Most kitties sleep approximately 16 hours a day, and like many humans, this makes me a little envious!? There is an unwritten rule that ALL cat owners know; if a cat falls asleep on you, you MUST not move, for fear of waking them up. I’m sure … Continue reading Cat Naps…Gizmo style!?
