Unfortunately, Snuggles has stopped eating and drinking again by herself. The vets in Dawlish where my mum lives, could not find the cause when examing her yesterday morning. That same day, my own vet in Exeter, who had just returned from holiday that day, found a mass in her tummy. He knew it just from feeling her tummy and an ultrasound confirmed it.
The lump is either a tumor or an enlarged liver, due to her not eating much. On Thursday 23rd of October, she will have surgery to determine what the lump is, and if it can be operated on. She is weaker than should be to undergo an operation and anaesthetic. Please wish her good luck.
As you know, Cinnamon died, and I had to take immediate action to get a new companion for Daisy, so she would eat and drink again. It did the trick. Please welcome Chestnut into our furry family.
Chestnut is a Golden Agouti and reddy-brown in colour. Her birthday is the day before mine, on the 23rd of April, making her 5 months old. Being quirky, it’s great to have a new furry baby to be broody over. I am never like that with human babies, and not having kids of my own. In fact being quirky, and breaking conventions, I am not the sex, marriage and kids type. I am 100% a quirky businesswoman, entrepreneur, and love leading a young, kid-like, vibrant quirky life. It’s what I was born to be and do.
What type of life, do you like to lead?
Daisy has taken to Chestnut like a duck to water. It’s like they have been together forever.
I am away in London and Disneyland Paris next week with my cousin. No work for once in my life, in 3 years. Can’t wait. Yipeeeee!
This is Cinnamon. He is with his black and white sister and life partner, Daisy, in the top photo.
Please pray for him as he is not well. He won’t eat and drink by himself and he is currently at the vets for the 3rd time since yesterday morning.
He had almost all of his teeth cut and filed yesterday. Has got a lump between his abdomen and kidney, that may or may not need to be removed at the moment. He has lost weight. Was peeing blood after his mouth op yesterday, fitting from the anaesthetic, and not been too well. Hopefully he will be coming home this evening, but have to go back to the vets to syringe feed him in the morning.
Apologies for not commenting on your blogs recently, and being delayed with my replies to your awesome comments. I really appreciate every single one of you from the bottom of my heart. I haven’t forgotten you. I have started teaching again, with a lot of meetings and converations going on back and forth. As well as working full time in my day job, setting up my Blog Trainer UK business, creating two new RLC courses, and working on my new http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site.
I have squeezed a bit of fun in with dating myself. I have so much social media to manage too, and trying to post blogs each week.
My dad has paid for me and my cousin to go to Disneyland Paris next week. We are staying in London the night before and after. It will be the first time I have had a holiday with no work, in 3 years. I have been busy preparing for that.
Thanks for being so special and a huge part of my life. You help me to be stronger, to live life more fully, and to embrace my own quirky even more. I couldn’t do it without you. You are amazing.
Whatever life throws at you, keep smiling and keep being your authentic quirky you.
