Oliver! What are we going to do with you?!?!?

My regular posting routine has totally gone out of the window this week and my blog is seriously lacking photos.....not that I have actually got any to post :(

Who would have thought looking after a poorly kitty would be such a nightmare!?!? Thinking of naming him 'Conan' the destroyer or maybe 'Harry' Houdini. Sleeping is getting slightly easier, but trying to control him is not.

So far this week he has nearly made himself hoarse with all the meowing he's been doing. Monday was really tough at work as I was so exhausted from the weekend, Monday evening he managed to brake the bedroom blind (one of those wooden venetian ones) by trying to use them as a ladder to escape out of the upstairs window so that has to be fixed tomorrow. Yesterday he took his lampshade off for the 6th time and pulled one of his stitches out :( then bumped into the door and made it bleed :(

Nell (our other kitty) is getting seriously hacked off with him being in the house all the time so she's hissing at him (which is totally out of character for her as normally she adores him). Then this morning he tried to do 'The Great Escape' out of the other upstairs bedroom almost succeeding until Chris managed to grab his back legs and pull him back in. I don't think he quite gets what would have happened to him if he had got out of the window......its a very long way down!!!

There's been no crafting this week as I feel like I'm constantly wandering around.....and now I'm having to keep the windows on their latch so there's no room for escape. Feeling like I've got Cabin Fever!!

Roll on Friday when he can be released!!!


  1. WOW! Who knew kittens could be such work! It's been a long, long time since I've had one. My cat is now 17 so she's way mellow.

    Good luck!

  2. oh no! I hope he is better soon, I'm not surprised you can't wait for friday.

    (An thanks for your purchase Emma, it is all packed up ready to go to the post office in the morning)

  3. Poor Oliver! Hope things get back to normal (for all of you) soon!
