We got a call

So i came home from work yesterday and there was a message on the phone from the breeders of our baby Oliver. He basically said that there was something for us to pick up and that all we needed to bring was a cage.
This is what i came home with;




So this is the new cat - the breeders gave us him for free. It was soo lovely, like the best Christmas present ever! They are so generous.
He is a bit mischievous though, he just ate the corner of my new book :( which is a bit sad, m going to have to do some DIY and fix it (its just a paperback so he bit right through it)
And he gets scared very easily, i just hope that doest last - it scares me a bit (reminds me of Ollie :( )

So yeah, he doesn't have a same yet..we are thinking maybe Louie or Harvey...not sure..

Well its Christmas eve - so im going to relax.

My Baby is gone...forever



We had to take my baby Oliver (the cat) to the vet last night. On Tuesday he suddenly went feral on Simon and went totally mental and bit his thumb..then we took him to the vet and they gave him some painkillers and antibiotics, they thought it may have been part of his ongoing problems. So we brought him home and he seemed very shy and quiet, and then when i came home from work yesterday he welcomed me with a meow and a cuddle and i took him outside for a walk (these are the photos below) and then i started cooking dinner - in the middle of that i went to go hug him and he snapped, it was so scary..it wasn't him..and he was hissing and growling and everything he doesn't do - he is normal an angel :(
But he wouldn't calm down so Simon went to grab him to put him in his cage..and went crazy..and poo'd everywhere (which is not normal) We finally got him to the vet, and there was nothing we could do..he had slightly calmed down..but was still growly..and he could do it again..so we had to put him down :(

Im am so sad i cant even describe it, he was my baby, my first cat. He was only just 9 months old :(
Born on the 3rd of March 2010. I keep thinking im going to find him sitting on the couch..but he is never going to be there again. Some of you may be thinking why im so upset about just a cat..but he was my baby cat..my companion..awww i so want him to come back :( But i know he's not hurting anymore..whatever was wrong..he's now sleeping in my mums garden..under the flowers..he's going where ever cats go..may God look after him.

These pictures were taking just an hour before we had to put him down - you would think he was fine..but there must have been something else going on..

Here are the last pictures of my baby :(... Love you my Oliver!!








He was the BEST cat ever and i will miss him very much.

Here are some pictures from when he was a baby..to all grown up (well as much as he was..he wasn't even 1)

The day we got him


As a wee baby

Pom Poms


Took a pic of my Pom pom Marigolds - They are just lovely

Christmas is here! - already..o man

Well the Christmas tree is up..knocked over 3 times by the cat (onto our second base..and this one is slightly broken already!!)
Anyways..Christmas shopping is done, i stuck to my budget of $10-$15 per person! I have got some pretty awesome gifts (well i think so anyway - cant say much more because my family reads this! LOL)

Well here are some pics - Ollie in the Christmas spirit and a closeup of our tree (yes its artificial - its the bets kind - gets cheaper each year haha)
