Whoo. Backwards and forwards to the vet with Puzzle cat, who remained a Puzzle. But all solved today, well, fingers crossed. The Dawn Patroller had to negotiate Aberdeen rush hour including the infamous Haudegain roundabout. (My spelling of this will be rectified shortly by Christine.)

What did they find? A lump of GRASS and a bit of fur. Stuck on his soft palate. This lump of grass and bit of fur has cost me a lot of money. However they did give us this lump, neatly packaged in an evidence bag. So could I frame it and do a Damien Hirst and make some money back?
Please be grateful dear friends I have not posted a picture of it on the blog.
Still dont understand why its taken weeks and a lot of money to find this. Next time its a crochet hook.
I also had yet another birthday. When your cards say this

She and the Dawn Patroller took him and whilst waiting for him to be examined went to Aberdeen Beach Boulevard and saw....
My week however, took an even more downward turn when I had my hair done.
