Suffering with a bad headache I decided to have an indoor fun day full of making and movies, we watched Disney’s Aladdin which is one of my favourite films and made lots of things with the fantastic material known as Playdough.
As you can tell there was a little theme going on 🎃
Once again we went to my favorite place to photograph – Cammas Hall
but instead of strawberries and raspberries.. we went for the wonderful pumpkin!
So many choices to pick, big and small and even some charming green ones, middle kitten Amelia wanted this one.
I love going here every year, this time we actually used it regularly and I am excited to go again next year with Robin.
Time to Carve 🙂
While I am a third time mum, I don’t claim to be an expert on the subject of parenting, like many I am simply going with the flow and hoping for the best..
My first kitten Kai was easy to wean, he was excited to try many new things and he was given baby rice and mushed fruit at 4 months old as he was ready for it.. he’s now a healthy demonic 6 year old and loves his food, as does my second kitten Amelia who I waited till the recommended 6 months to wean her, she now loves food so much that’s all she can think about hah… she’s a soon to be 5 year old..
But with my youngest kitten, Robin.. who is now 6 months old, isn’t interested in food at all… she’s more interested in my phone than a spoon.. I would try baby lead weaning but I have a fear that she may choke on her food.. so at 5 months I tried her on a little, she still had her tongue reflex to prevent my worry from happening… so I waited, a week before she turns 6 months I tried her again, she seemed more interested but still isn’t keen..
I understand all babies are different yadda yadda yadda … but it’s worrying me..
I know it shouldn’t but eh, it’s going to.. and I’m wondering if I should entertain BLW to see if she’d rather feed herself rather than spoon fed.. when I attempt to spoon feed her she sticks her tongue to prevent me from getting anything in, not the reflex but deliberately forcing her tongue out of her mouth whenever I get even close with a spoon.
So my question is… should I wait a bit longer and try her again?… or preserve and keep trying?
Personally I think I should wait and try again next week..
This parenting thing is tough hah!
Last weekend we all went out for a walk as a family with the intention to collect conkers!!
Impressive haul don’t you think? 🙂 I love autumn
A few weeks ago now my wonderful cat Artie had to be taken to the vets, he had lost a lot of weight over the course of 23 weeks and we honestly put it down to the fact that our newest Kitten had arrived and he was finding it a bit stressful, they couldn’t find anything wrong with him but gave him some anti inflammation medication and see how things went, he seemed to have gotten better on the medication so we didn’t go back to see the vet again..
On the 2nd of October things changed, he was sleeping a lot and when the eldest Kittens returned from their weekly trip to nannies house he would follow them around and rest his head to one side.
We called the vets, this was a Sunday, and they got me to bring him in to check him out, after some bloods it turns out he had low potassium and they wanted to get him onto a drip over night and to perform an X-ray.. the X-ray showed kidney stones! What are the odds!?
Monday morning comes around and the vets called and told us that they think it may be neurological so mum and I went to see them at lunch time and after seeing him we made the choice to do the best for him and put him to sleep.
And on Monday 3rd October at 12:30 my lovely boy Artie died 😦
I am sad but after seeing him I knew that it was the only thing we could’ve done, he didn’t even know who I was, he didn’t sniff the air, he just flopped to one side and looked confused.
I kept my promise to him (as stupid as that sounds) to sit with him when he died, and I did, stroking his head.. I knew when he went as his ears stopped reacting to my touch..
Goodbye lovely Artie x
