Food for Thought

It’s kind of funny how we make assumptions with regards to price. Pretty much since we started Elvis on his diet I figured that his special food must be costing us more than Lola’s run-of-the-mill stuff. After all, Elvis’s food comes in at about 36€ a bag, whilst Lola’s is just 7€ for two boxes.…

Foster Diaries: Ilona & Friends – Week Four

When I post next week’s Foster Diary I will have to change the name. It can’t be ‘Ilona & Friends’ anymore, because Ilona is no longer here. She has moved on to her brand new home. It’s somehow simultaneously wonderful and terrible. Okay, okay. It’s a good thing. Yes it is weird not having her…

NaBloPoMo: I’m Having A Bad Bad Day

Why are Bad Days a thing? I mean, what is it that makes bad things happen all at once? I think everyone has probably had a bad day at least once in their lives. One of those days that, from the moment you wake up, everything seems to go wrong. Back in the summer S had…

Foster Diaries: Ilona & Friends – Week Three

I bring terrible wonderful news! Ilona has been reserved for adoption. Isn’t it horrible great? You might be able to tell that I have mixed feelings about this… Ilona is the first kitten we ever fostered. We’ve had her with us for nearly two months, and she’s developed from a tiny hissing little ball of…

Foster Diaries: Ilona & Friends – Week Two

I’m going to try and keep this short because I’m exhausted after today’s writing Marathon (I’ll tell more about it tomorrow, but suffice to say that I wrote a little over 10,000 words today…) Still nothing from any potential adopters. We’re going to have to try and work out logistics for whilst we’re away. We’re…

Foster Diaries: Ilona – Week Three

Ilona seems to be getting ever bolder. Since I last posted we decided to take down the divider that kept the living room off-limits (she was getting far too proficient with her attempts to jump over!) which means now she has access to the whole flat. That does mean that the older two have nowhere…

Foster Diaries: Ilona – Week Two

Another week gone, and I’m still not convinced this kitten we have is the same one we bought home. Ilona has become a bit wilder again, eschewing human contact most of the time. Not because she’s going feral or anything like that, but because she’d far rather be chasing a toy around the room than…
