I'm not very nice!

I'm not very nice!

This is our Ocicat, Ozzie. Sadly, he recently developed an ear infection (quite a serious one) and, after two visits to the vets (so far) he's slowly getting better.

Problem is he wanders round like a professional drunkard! The slinky cat walk has been replaced with a stagger suspecting that brain and legs are out of sync. Because of this, every time he moves I shout "Look out, a drunk about!"

Really, I feel soooo sorry for him but, perhaps my sick sense of humour(?) I just find it funny (now I know its nothing life threatening).

Sorry, I can't help being a bit horrible!

Oh, in case you're wondering, the Yorkie is his bestist friend!

Aaah, hoping he is back to normal very soon. He must be feeling very disorientated. Do they curl up together?

Hello Jessy - grrrr...went to bed at ten and read - wide awake again at twelve, read again and finished a book, came in here switched computer on, made a cup of tea, just peeped in at my bedroom and Merlin has taken up the whole flipping bed and now I am peckisah but if I move about in the kitchen he will be on the alert so I won't do it. Think I'll pour myself a Grouse. I am not even a little bit tired.

What do you do when you can't sleep?

Must have nodded off Jennifer 😴💤💤💤😴 !

Woken again at 4am after 2 hrs sleep. Don't know why I'm not sleeping.

I'm tired & have had a busy day so no excuses.

I usually read Jennifer & try not to be too noisy so's not to wake my hubby!

Going to try to sleep again as I feel myself nodding off! 💤😴💤

I am in complete rapor with your poor cat. I have over the years suffered from Labrynthitis causing complete loss of balance it is painless but lasts anything from 3 weeks to a year but it is so embarrassing the stories I could tell would have you crying with laughter, fortunately I can laugh myself now but the dirty looks I have had from people who thought I was drunk I felt like putting a card round my neck saying I am a teetotaler and I am not drunk.. As it was I always had someone with me as it was not safe to go out alone and definitely couldn't drive. Your cat is very beautiful and I hope it soon clears up poor thing must wonder what on earth is happening at least I knew what was wrong and that it would go away. Keep well. Rosabeth

When I can't sleep I put on my IPad and read do jigsaws catchup on emails and get into long conversations with various relies and friends abroad I don't play games as I don't like them. John complains about the light so I dim it as much as possible and then make a tent with the duvet to keep the room dark but it gets too hot. I wake most mornings with my IPad in my hand and my glasses still on. I never make a drink as that usually means a trip to the bathroom and then I am so wide awake I will not get back to sleep and will sleep most of the day on and off and of course I am not tired when it comes to nighttime again. The proverbial vicious circle. Rosabeth.

Lovely markings on the wobbly cat and nice to see his best friend close by.

Must be funny to see the cat staggering around. Xxx

Both pets look so gorgeous and so comfortable. Hope Ozzie's ear infection clears up soon. Poor little soul. You rotten thing (joke!) laughing at him.

Give both pets a hug from Auntie Ann.
