The snow is disappearing fast and although it is freeezing cold everywhere is driveable, though our close and drive were a bit interesting.
We may not have gone out so early but we had to go to the vets for an update on Fiki.
We now know his weight issue is not thyroid - he is just fat! He overeats. He is his Mommy's boy. Seems weight issues run int he family.
He now has to try ad reduce his calorie intake significantly and we do that with a carefully controlled diet. Sounds simple doesn't it!
Well it would be if we didn't also have Kira who is allergic to pretty much everything. The vet gave us some low calorie food but Oh my - it is expensive and I can't affors £15 a week just for Fiki's food, let alone an allergic cat (kira) and a fussy cat (Boo) so we have bought what we hope is food will suit both, have bough fresh chicken and will make him eat his meal in one go and not graze - which he does now.
Wish us luck - the aim is for him to loose at least a pound before we go in a month's time.
Garage clearing continued well today too and we took a load of stuff to the tip. I would rather not have seen a work colleague as I was handing over a gun - but such is life! A gun you ask. It was my Dad's old air rifle which we had had buried away int he garage for about 25 years and which was rusted to pieces. It just didn't look good!
I have also scrapped and this is a page from yesterday of me lobbing a snowball at Nigel and was made for the weekly challenge on UKS.
I also have another Pickle Barrel page to share today.
This time it is a page using Amber Shaw's wonderful goodies which you can snap up now really cheaply.
The model - Emily of course.
- the snow not being lethally slippery today
- Fiki not being ill just fat - I hope we can manage it
- light at the end of the garage tunnel.
