On the Mend

I'm happy to report that Mickey is well and truly on the mend after his little encounter with the deadly paralysis tick.   A HUGE thank you to everyone who has enquired after him!

He was a little lethargic for a couple of days but has once again taken up his favourite position (apart from the end of my bed that is!) on the front porch, guarding his beloved family.

Our pets have always been such a huge part of our lives and I absolutely know for sure that we are the centre of their universe!    For those that aren't pet lovers, I guess it is hard to understand the affinity we feel with them.    However one thing is for sure - when they're not well, it certainly affects us all.

Whilst on the subject of Pet friendships - sweet Loulou  over at  Here I am Lou lou did a posting this week about a unique friendship between a cat and bird.   My heart was well and truly in my mouth as I the pictures unfolded - but it was such a happy ending.

I just had to share these gorgeous photos Kendall took on her recent trip to Ireland.

Let me introduce "Sandy" and Mrs Cat.........

Have you ever seen such a beautiful friendship?   Sandy (the oh so placid Lab!) and Mrs Cat are her boyfriend Alan's family pets in Co Galway.  

Just goes to show - friendship comes in all shapes and sizes!

PS:   Thank you SO MUCH Kellie from Sasse Avenue for becoming my 50th follower today!   A real milestone moment.   I truly appreciate EACH and EVERY one of you for popping by and saying Hi!

Definitely calls for a little giveaway to celebrate - stay tuned!
