An aged cat.

Sith Cat.

18 years old.  Various problems health wise.  He has to have half a steroid and a pill which supports his liver function.  I still have all my fingers.  But it is a daily struggle to administer and get him to swallow.  He has a very loud cry we think it is loud because he is deaf.  Although he can hear a packet of cat food being opened.  He sleeps and eats.  Goes out and occasionally still manages to catch something.  Hey ho.  Our house is more and more like a care home.

Today is the last day of June.  Blimey.  Sunny but cool.  I walked.  Saw Paddle surfers.

Boats leaving and entering the harbour.

Feeding frenzy of Herring Gulls on Sand Eels.

A few of the Gull Gang.

A Canna Lily for my patio.

I have been asked if there is a Burgh nearby.  So I better do a brief post about Fraserburgh's name.  It used to be called Faithlea.

Beautiful Lily! Our cat lived to be 20. He was deaf the last few years, but could smell a can of tuna being opened a mile away! I still miss him!

They grow so well in Scotland Canna Lilies - we see them everywhere.
Our cat was about 22 or 23 years old when he died. We are not sure exactly as he was left with us by some neighbours who moved to London and he was not a kitten then. We had him for 19 years and we guessed he was about 3 or 4 years old when we took him in.

Sith looks so contented. Living alone my cat is a valued companion but I dread loosing him, he is my 5th and probably last cat, he rules the household. Glad you are getting out, whatever the weather. Take care, Sarah D.

Sith cat looks very contented. Our cat hated meds as well. It took both of us to get her to swallow any liquid medication at all. Heaven help us if we had had to give her a pill.

God bless.

Beautiful cat. Beautiful flowers. We all dread the fact our pets live fewer years than we do, but it is a shame they don't understand the things we do that are for their 'own good', to ease pain or prevent recurring health issues.

He certainly is a lovely looking cat. Another great walk so nice to see the gull gang.

Do you bring your Canna Lilies in for the Winter? Have you tried wrapping the pill in ham or salmon - or (like most cats) wouldn't that fool him?
