Our cat, Tigger, has been through the wars of late. The other month he went missing for ten days, and I eventually got him back by crawling under the floor boards of a house across from us. He entered via a missing air brick which was replaced by workmen whilst Tigger was still exploring. His cries for help eventually alerted the old dear who lives in the house and her daughter noticed our 'poster campaign' and contacted us.
Then, last month, he developed a bladder problem. It seems to be a common problem in cats that have been 'fixed'. A visit to the vet and a couple of days of hospitalisation was in order, with a bill in excess of £200.
Now, he is on a special diet. I worked out what it costs to feed him for a month.
The best part of £70 a month. To feed him. A bloody moggie cat!!!!
What gratitude to we get?
Clawed wallpaper and pot shots at our ankles when we have the audacity to walk past him.
Next visit to the vet will be for the 'cheap jag'!
