Natalie's Birthday

Good Evening everyone. A very busy week this week what with big shopping trips to supermarket. Vets visit with our youngest female cat  who for the last 6 mths has kept coming down with cystitis episodes. She is now on permanent cystitis meds and for the next 2 - 3 months is on painkiller. Please think of her and pray she doesnt have anymore attacks. She will be 2 on July 1st so Im praying she grows out of it. If it carries on and worsens it has been suggested that we rehome her. Vets reckon its stress as we have 3 cats, one of whom is her brother the same age as her. Also that she might be better were she is the only cat in the house. That would be  my worst nightmare. Tomorrow is a craft workshop with my friend and fellow crafter Rae Dalal who will be taking the workshop. Thursday is visit to hairdressers and more supermarket shopping then Fri will be spending the afternoon with another dear friend. To finish the week off I will be going to another workshop with Rae. Im shattered not used to so much activity, lol.
