Thank you everyone so much for all your kind wishes for the big furry one’s speedy recovery. All went well, and he’s home from the vet now, but feeling rather sorry for himself ….
After a rocky 24 hours when he refused to drink he’s now feeling much more like himself, and is a total menace in his plastic cone. So far he has barged into (and destroyed or damaged) two terracotta pots (complete with contents), one small table, pile of laundry in its basket waiting to be hung on the line (had to be washed all over again) and made a large scrape along the side of the house. But I will have the last laugh. His weight check before his operation revealed that he had put on the pounds and now weighs a portly 77 kg (that’s 168 lbs or 12 stone exactly). This is too heavy and he needs to lose half a stone at least.
So we are all now on diets, and cake is a thing of the past … unless of course it’s cake with no calories like my Celebration Cake pattern from last month’s magazine …..
And to help with extra inspiration I’ve started a new board on Pinterest called Calorie-free treats – they’re all so lovely we’ll be slender before we know it!
