Au Is Skinny

Here is Au with Target hanging out in the background.  We celebrate Au's birthday in April because we don't know exactly when he was born.  This year will be his 15th birthday.

Au is skinny and bit rickety around the paws.  But on the other hand, his fur is soft, his eyes bright and he's eating and drinking properly.  I police the tray he uses in the bathroom and his insides are working well too.

We've had a chest cold scare and a liver scare in the last month but he's recovered from both.  But still...I love my old Au meow so much, I find it hard to see him age. Funnily enough, I don't mind my own aging at all!

I see so many of our friends online getting older.  Any tips about keeping an old boy young?  If so, please share!

For those of you with a Kindle, Chocolate: An Erotic Romance in Siberia is free tomorrow on Tuesday 26th 2013, Pacific Time.  That's minus 8 Coordinated Universal Time.

Please do me a favour and Like the page if you take the book.  And if you really like it, recommend it to your friends.  Thanks!

Au Is feeling Better

A month ago, Au had a chest cold.  He got over it, but his glands were swollen ten days ago.  I took him to the vet and Au was given antibiotics and RetroMAD.  The vets said the problem could be due to residual infection or a sign of cancer.

Today Au's glands are looking fine!  And he's eating like a pig and purring and playing and otherwise behaving like a healthy 14 year old boy.

He's changed in the last few months though.  Au is quite cuddly again, as if he were a kitten.  He sleeps next to me in bed at night, sits on my desk and asks for chin rubs on the hour, every hour.

Target is a little bit jealous but as Au is not a lap cat, Target can live with it.  Guido is his usual happy self.  He and Target wrestle and play all day long, which is exactly what we hoped for.

So it's all good news!  We're still celebrating Chinese New Year, so here's an old pic of Au and Target cuddling.  The new pic of them will be up on our Facebook page in a hour or two, and we'll be back to do the rounds and say hello to everyone in a few days. 

Gong Xi Fa Cai! May the Year of the Snake bring you prosperity, luck, health, love and laughter!

Guido Is On The Shelf

Target and Au are competing over who sleeps on my pillows in the bed, so quite often at 2AM I get fed up of being trodden on and I sneak off to the spare bedroom. 

Guido isn't a fan of nocturnal traffic either so he has found a fave new snoozing place: the towel stack in the bathroom.

Our days now start with slightly furry towels, so we are officially Furred Up!

Sorry to have been a bit absent on the blog.  I'm studying for a Masters and writing books so it's all a bit fraught. I'll pop round and see you all later today and tomorrow.
