Gizmo Got His Christmas Wish…

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…

Not the festive period we hoped for…

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…

Oh Christmas Tree, your days might be numbered…?!

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

Animals can teach us how to improve our lives…

This is a different type of blog post than Gizmos regular readers are used to. For once, this blog post doesn’t contain Gizmo doing something naughty or hilarious (don’t worry Gizmo fans…normal service will resume soon!) but instead, I wanted to take this opportunity to think about the human-animal relationship, what we can learn from them, and how we can improve our lives as a … Continue reading Animals can teach us how to improve our lives…

Assignment 3: Making Gizmo Calmer during the ‘Firework Season’

There are many things that can cause a cat to be stressed or anxious. Gizmo, for example, hates loud noises. Giz has always reacted to loud noises by hiding in the dark, under the dining room table. This is his ‘safe’ place, and when he takes himself under the table (which is thankfully now a very rare occurrence), we leave him alone until he is ready … Continue reading Assignment 3: Making Gizmo Calmer during the ‘Firework Season’
