Little Chucky is always desperate for a walk – at any time of the day – but we try and limit his ‘excursions’ because a leisurely walk is farthest from his mind. This is what he does and this is what he goes out for – chasing cats! The cats always get away, of course, not only because Chucky is leashed but because they are … Continue reading Hanging on for dear life!
Chucky decided this morning to take a short cut to the kitchen from the living room but stopped dead in his tracks when he saw he had been ‘caught’. Presented a great picture, though! Continue reading New on the bookshelf
Chucky’s had a shave – a close shave! He had had one in May and we’d decided we would let his hair grow in anticipation of the “winter”. But that was not to be.

This is Chucky – an 18-month old Shujistu mix. He almost became victim of a heartless landlord and complaining neighbours when his owners were told to move out of their apartment or give him away.

They are, of course, truly devastated … Continue reading Meet Chucky the adorable

The immediate fear was that Tyson would launch an attack so the priority was not to let … Continue reading Morning Surprise
I guess it’s time for this cat to say goodbye – to this life at least! Barely had I escorted Tyson inside the house than this rather menacing looking creature appeared from behind the wall and sat on the ‘toadstool’ I have set up with a makeshift birdbath, having a rather ‘cool’ drink! Tyson, as expected, went ballistic – thankfully behind closed doors. What I … Continue reading Being foolish?
