Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

TAMBY - update

Date: 29th May 2014

Some kind people have asked for an update on my lovely cat Tamby.  As I wrote previously they have a sort of Facebook for pets at the Barton Veterinary Hospital and I get an update every few days.

He is now out of the 'isolation unit' where he's been for 2 weeks, is allowed out to stretch his legs, has put on a few ounces in weight, is being very affectionate and I can't wait to have him home which will be in another week or two when it is assessed that the radiation has left his little body.

My son and his girlfriend are over from Australia and they spent a short time with me.  Jonathan grew up with pets - all his life I had standard poodles.  He asked to see some photos of the dogs - all now long gone to the Happy Hunting Ground in the sky and I found some photos of Tamby as a kitten.  I'd forgotten how utterly enchanting he was - he still is but kittens are so adorable.  Found in a country lane, attached himself to my heart and here we are 15 years later.  

The treatment is costing the price of a good holiday but he is worth every pound and I shall be happy if it gives him another few good years of life.  I couldn't bear to see him so sick.

This is my little boy soon after he was found at eight weeks of age.  

WHAT ME!  of course I didn't do it.
