Oops, I missed birthday celebrations for our two youngest cats: the sister & brother act, Abby and Ducky. They turned two a few days ago.
Ducky was in the wars on the day.
Can you see? Swollen face on the right side. That was the only visible symptom. We figured he’s either been stung by an insect, or had an abces. Quick vet’s visit the next day, even though the swelling had gone down – it was an insect sting. Probably bee or wasp. Anyway, he’s right as rain now.
And here’s Abby
In one of her favourite spots on a little wall.
And a couple more photos of pretty colours . . .
These little flowers growing in abundance, mixing in with the ivy . . . and in our neighbour’s garden
Which I suddenly realised were, what is known as “Wild Poppy”, therefore the colour inspiration for one of my current stitching projects! Stitching with the colour “Wild Poppies” by Threadworx – what a coincidence!
