Arrival Story:
Zephyr is the fifth in Orkney's litter.

Zephyr is second in the catty chain of command and can be a bit of a bully! She is not plain black and white - in the some of the photos you can see stripy brown gaiters on her back legs, and like her sister Arrow her black patches are mottled through with a kind of mouse colour.

Shooting the Breeze

Sometimes exercise is necessary

I had to go to the V-E-T on the weekend because my eyes are infected. As usual, I was a model patient. For the first time in years I weighed in under 7 kilos! So then the vet asked Mummy all these questions such as was I eating OK and stuff...jeepers, they complain when I'm too fat, and then they worry when I lose weight - I can't win! Mummy explained that she has been extremely strict with my diet lately because I'm not exercising as much as I used to, not that I have ever been very keen on exercise.
I spent the day recovering from the vet visit and then on Sunday our home was invaded by two terrible creatures; they looked like hoomans but they were too small to be hoomans, and they chased after me *shudders*. One of them had me cornered under the futon, and I decided that if ever there was a time to move my bod, this was it. I came shooting out from under the futon at the speed of light, straight past the small hooman-like thing which shrieked in surprise. Teeheehee!
Arrow contrived to get away just as the invasion commenced, and spent all day hiding in a corner of the chook pen, which was also invaded, but she managed to stay out of sight. I hear the chickens were not so lucky...


Guess Where I Went

To the V-e-t, of course, when do I ever go anywhere else? Although Mummy did once trundle me around Petstock in my cat carrier on a trolley, but that was only because we were on the way back from the V-e-t.
I have to have more antibiotics for my eyes, and anti-inflammatory drops for my leg which has been sore. I wouldn't limp for the vet, so she grabbed my leg and manipulated it this way and that. I cried a little bit but otherwise was very acquiescent and the vet said I was a very placid, well behaved cat. I even put up with it when she blocked my left nostril to make me stop purring.
Mummy made sure to tell them no eye drops, so I don't have to suffer that horrible indignity again. I'm taking my medicine like a trouper as usual, so it's all good.


Eye troubles again

I went to the v-e-t on the weekend because my eyes were playing up again. The vet persuaded Mummy to try giving me eye drops, even though it said in my file that I'm not good to give drops to. I got an elephant stamp for being good at the vet as usual. Orkney said an elephant is the most appropriate stamp for me, I wonder what she meant?
Anyway, that evening Mummy crept up on me, seized my head and put drops in my eyes! I shut my eyes tight, jumped up and ran outside to roll on the concrete, which is something that always makes me feel better. I rolled and rolled and then I ran to the gate and sat there with my eyes still tightly shut. I wouldn't open them at all for at least ten minutes.
Mummy gave me another dose the next day and I struggled and cried and shut my eyes again for a long time. She says she's going to tell the vet no more eye drops. The antibiotics do the job without having to torture me as well.
