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.

|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!

|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.....|
