Poorly Pud

November 13, 2008

Martha has been being sick a lot lately… so last night I took her to the vets to see if they could figure out why. I’m a little scared that she might have managed to munch on some jewellery wire or something else.

So today she is in for the day, having various blood tests and then some xrays too. I’ll be waiting with baited breath for the call to say shes ready to be picked up and that they figured out whats wrong. I’m already a nervous wreck and don’t think I could cope with any kind of prolonged investigation.

Get well soon our Martha!



Our Martha

November 11, 2008

Since I managed to write about myself and the craft fair yesterday, I thought I’d devote a little time today to our Martha… the namesake of my Jewellery shop!


Martha is a gorgeous tabby cat. Shes about 2 years old now, and we’ve had her since she was a kitten. I can’t imagine life without this particular furball around. A pretty good little hunter – we’re often woken at 2am (I say we, Bob mostly sleeps through these disturbances) to find a terrified miniature rodent and an overexcited would-be murderer! That said she is always waiting for me when I get home from work, and bounds down the stairs having checked that it really is me… shes the only cat we know who answers to her name. Open the back door and call for her and she’ll be running down the garden (very vocally) to see what goodies you’ve got for her! Recently shes taken to sitting on top of the TV – this might have something to do with her fascination with┬áBig Cat Diary, she seemed up for taking them on in a bit of a scrap!

Martha vs the Big Cats!
