I just found out that my beloved cat is dying. She has a malignant tumour and the cancer sadly has spread.

I feel depressed and helpless, so I’ve been spending as much time as I can with her.

One thing that has made me happy and kept my mind in a better place is binge-watching some of Simon’s Cat. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an animation drawn and ‘voiced’ by Simon Tofield, a life-long lover of cats (he owns multiple) who illustrates the little amusing antics and struggles of owning a cat, mainly through the main character, Simon’s Cat.

One of my favourite videos is actually the first colourised video, Off To The Vet. So relatable but pure and good, and definitely something I need right now.

Furry Little Prayers

Hey guys,

I want to thank you for your patience with me lately; I’ve been promising to post regularly and keep up-to-date with my social media yet something always seems to happen.

This time, it hasn’t really been about me or my human family, but my furry family. My Furry Partner In Crime (FPIC for short) is sick. Cancer sick. I’ve been crushed since being told and have had to adjust how I spend my time as I’ve had to look after her and feed her every few hours. Even though she is a clingy little asshole, she’s my little asshole, and my days are 99% of the time spent around her. She is always near me when I plan and write my posts, take the photos, retake the photos because she’s either in it or a clump of her fur blows into the shot.

It’s been a bit of a challenge to get into a routine, but I think we’re almost there so next week I can get back to something of normality for the site… maybe a better normality with some actual content!

So please keep her in your thoughts, please share if you’ve been through something similar with your furry ones, and thank you for coming to see us every day

Massive amounts of love,

L & FPIC 🐾

We’re Not Moving.. AGAIN!

Hey guys!

It’s been a time, let me tell you! As it says on the tin, we’re not moving again and while I am relieved we aren’t (two weeks down to going and we had no answer from the real estate!), I’m probably going to rant about some of the annoying things about renting. It might be more ~Australian rental issues~ but maybe you’ll enjoy it and identify with some of it.

Now to unpack all of my shit!

Hey guys!

Before we come back in 2018, I just wanted a big thank you for reading my big, for liking, posting, everything. I started this blog with no big goals for it other than sharing info and opinions no one asked for, in a way that wasn’t really being done before, so the fact that you come here and check it out is just unbelievable to me and I thank you so, so much.

I hope you had a great holiday and chill out, and here’s to 2018!
