I’ve been a little quiet on the blogosphere, which is partly due to my poor boy being sick…
Jonesy, being the BIG boy that he is, will defend his and Ella’s territory (along with tiny Ella herself) with vigour when it comes to nasty strays! Don’t get me wrong… I know you can find a great companion in a stray/rescued cat – both Jonesy & Ella are rescued cats – but there are the occasional strays that have gone too long alone in the wild and are just outright feral!
We have one hanging around here right now. While defending the territory a little over a week ago, Jonesy had a massive fight – letting out screeches that woke me from my sleep. The next day he didn’t seem himself and by that afternoon was groaning when touched. Straight to the vet we went, where we discovered that he was in fact very sick with a terrible infection!
Anyone who has nursed a sick animal would know that “medicine time” can be just as distressing to the owner as it is to the pet. But Jonesy did great with his course of antibiotics – he’s an old hat at taking pills now… poor guy’s been through a lot in his life!
Getting to this weeks’ camera critter pictures…
With that all behind us – Jonesy is doing great! – I thought I’d honour this “sibling love” with a series of photos of Jonesy with his baby sister Ella. These were taken on a nice spring day when the birds where flying in and out of that tree they lie in front of.
P.S. I wish it was spring again… as we enter into winter it’s getting colder and colder! At least I might have a chance to get some shots of the kids in front of a winter fire to share with you all.
