In which I tie up a few loose ends, and the Magpie Cat is diagnosed with renal failure.

The Magpie Cat has renal failure. She's an old cat, so it's not entirely unexpected.

She spent the night at the vet's recently having blood and urine samples and a thorough investigation. I was pretty sure what the outcome was going to be. Now she has a very flash renal diet and will have follow up bloods in a few weeks time to see if it's working.

The hard part is that she's such a vacuum cleaner, it's difficult to get the Tail Cat's left overs out of the way before she comes looking for them!

Anyhow, we are experienced at dealing with renal failure at our place.

I finished the sheep jumper last week. After the longest stretch of sewing in ends!!!

I took it into Janine at The Black Sheep wool shop in town to choose some buttons.

Here is the finished article. I love it.

Don't know what I'll do with it. Probably just keep it in the cupboard and admire it every now and then. I just get so excited every time I finish something!!! But there is some law of physics existing that means when you finish something, the net sum of unfinished projects remains the same. Because you have started at least one more in the meantime!

Does this happen at your place Blog Chics?
