Weekly Smile – (3TC #580)

The weekly smile goes to Willow, my Mother’s adorable hearing dog. She has joined our household, just for a while, whilst Mum recovers from a second fall and hip operation, in as many months.

Now, some of you will know that this home is a cat dominated household, and Skadi’s nose is well out of joint. She is not at all keen on giving up the position of top cat – you know how the puss communities are? 😆

We have had to employ a whole load of ingenious contraptions to keep them out of each other’s way. For example, there’s a shoe lace attached to the kitchen door handle that allows the door to remain open enough for the cat to squeeze through … to get to the flap; but too narrow, for Willow to escape. 🤣

She, the cat, however, is still not happy and is holed up in the wardrobe upstairs; demanding Boyfriend and I fetch and carry food, water, toys and her good self every time she needs a wee! Talk about waiting on her hand and foot (like a puppy-dog) … I don’t know? 🤪

Mum’s progress report, however, is good and it looks like she will be back home sooner, rather than later. So I guess it’s time for walkies and to make the most of Willow’s company whilst she is still on her holiday by the sea!

  1. Poor Skadi! lol. I think all cats want to be treated like royalty, but this is goign a bit far. I’m glad your mom’s recovery is going well. Hope Willow enjoys the rest of her little vacation.

  2. We give our cats royal names – we have Grace Kelly (she was named Grace when we “inhere-ted” her) and Albert (Albert was adopted after we saw the movie The King’s Speech) and have had Joséphine (for Joséphine Bonaparte) and Claudius (for the Roman Emperor).
