Toby’s Return

After a short stay at the vets Toby our fake, feral, farm feline has returned home to rest and recover from his serious viral infection. He’s been very ill and would surely not have made it had he not been the kind of feral farm cat that masquerades as a placid, affectionate and much loved family pet that lives indoors. That and lots of nursing and drugs from me and the vet of course!
Well it’s great to finally have him back and on the road to recovery even if he is a little clingy and demanding. A period of syringe feeding, medicating and hospitalisation is bound to have an effect on an impressionable young cat and in Toby’s case it seems to have manifested itself in a preoccupation with joining the veterinary profession.  
"Washing your hands is an important part of being a Vet" says Toby

Is there a  Doctor in the house? 
Since his return he has established a make shift surgery in the kitchen which seems very popular with the rest of the animals. So popular in fact, that a number of them now appear to be inventing symptoms in order to receive his attention.
I'm sure it was here last time I looked?

Yesterday Buffy turned up on the door step with a suspected case of lost leg syndrome and Polly feigned her own death in order to get to the front of the queue!

Now that Toby is feeling much better he is keen to get out and about, especially as he has a number of house calls to make. From what I understand it appears that an urgent case of contagious broodiness seems to have broken out in the chicken coop which demands his attention, along with a large number of the local rodent population who he suspects may be suffering from imminent dead mouse disease.  
If you can't beat 'em...Join 'em. Broodiness can be contagious!

I’m delighted with his return and recovery of course, and incredibly grateful to the Vet…… It’s just a shame that there isn't a cure for his eccentricity…….
Toby's attempt to cure a mole of hiccups by giving it a fright did not go to plan.....
