I start my chin wag with a heavy heart as this week my great mate Gember make his trip to bridge. It was sudden and without warning. He was a great mate to me and I will miss him and remember fondly. Fly free at the bridge Gember you were a great mate on earth and now I count you as one of my angel mates.
Could you also please spare some purrs for my purring mate Purrcy. He's not well again and is on and off with his food. His mum wrote in his diary asking for purrs and to keep everything crossed for when Purrcy goes to the vet.
Today is the 3rd December today is also international day of persons with a disability. It is something Mum and I like remember as mum is trained disability worker and will always stand up for their rights.
Here is an explanation of what international day of persons with disabilities from the UN website.
The annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December was established by the International Year for Disabled Persons (1981).
The Day aims to promote a better understanding of disability issues with a focus on the rights of persons with disabilities and gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of the political, social, economic and cultural life of their communities.
The goal of full and effective participation of persons with disabilities in society and development was established by the World Programme of Action concerning Disabled Persons, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1982.
This is a day that should be celebrated as all people are different and that what makes the world great. People with a disability have a lot to offer if given the chance and their contributions to society should be celebrated.
2 days ago we had the official start of summer in Australia and guess what it did most of the day. Rained. If I send you sun with rain I apologise in advance.
Mum had been working really hard lately. But she does nice things for me when comes home. Last night she brought KFC home and brought me home some too.
It tasted so good. She even got my in it's own box so made me feel really special. I even put my head in my box tried to pull it out but couldn't get out myself mum had to feed it to me.
She even brought me home the cat food I like and plenty of it, Grandma went food shopping today and commented that I won't starve in hurry which is nice to know.
Well there is nothing left to write.
I hope this chin wag find my mates and their families happy and healthy and I send my purrs to those doing it tough.
Purrs and hugs your Aussie mate

Purring for Purrcy. It's never good when a cat is off its food.
We didn't know about International Day of People with Disabilities. My mum's mum used a wheelchair the last ten years of her life - she was all about what she could do not what she couldn't and she did plenty of things. So this the Day sounds like a really good idea.
Some of your warmth arrived today and all the snow is gone. please send more! Some of the rain came with it but we didn't mind.
Purrs and headrubs
Henry (and Josie and my mum!)
Very pleased to receive the warmth, Ka-Zar. As you know, it's moving on to winter here. Today the peeps remarked on the flying white flecks outside. Something they call snow. They piled up briefly on the deck and porch roof, but were gone by mid-afternoon.
Your Mum has an important job. It always strikes me as odd that one of the problems that disabled people have is other people. Cats don't seem to regard other cats with disabilities as disabled at all.
Yeah, like disabled people they sometimes need a little assist with the logistics. But I've noticed, from experience with both a tripod and a blind/deaf sibling, that when it's ear-licking time or play-wrestle time, everybody's on a level field.
Enjoy that approaching summer, my friend.
