Break In

Break in hiking boots. I got myself new hiking boots for my winter walks. Unfortunately, a brand-new pair of hiking boots will be too stiff at first to provide comfort. It looks like Mr. Bowie’s ready to assist me with the break-in process. But probably he’s much more interested in the box.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Good Feeling

I had a good feeling about this. Last Friday, Mr. Bowie had his medical check-up concerning his ear infection and high blood pressure. The lab test results, concerning his ear, were very good. We were all very happy! It looks like all the stubborn bacteria of the ear infection are killed and gone, again. I can stop the treatment next Wednesday but we’ll keep our attention on this issue.

However, Mr. Bowie’s blood pressure was still a little bit too high and the doctor performed two blood tests. Mr. Bowie was not amused and displayed aggressive behaviour from hissing and growling to scratching. But hey, he was well within his rights to react this way. A lot of people (and cats) have a needle phobia too… I got the lab results later in the evening and everything was good. Thank goodness! No problems found with his thyroid gland, or a kidney disease. The doctor suggested to use a new complete, hypoallergenic dietary food for adult cats with insufficient kidney function. The product is based on one animal protein source (venison) and one carbohydrate source (rice) and is therefore also suited for adult cats with food hypersensitivity, like Mr. Bowie. It also should help to bring the high blood pressure down.

As always, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” 

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding. 

Bad Feeling

I had a bad feeling about this. Have you ever had a bad feeling about something and been right? I had a feeling something was wrong with Mr. Bowie. 

Today, Mr. Bowie had his medical check-up concerning his ear and eye problems from last year. The lab test results were not good. Unfortunately, the doctor noticed Mr. Bowie needs medical treatment for another ear infection. Bummer! He needs ear drops twice a day for two weeks. Also, Mr. Bowie’s arterial blood pressure was higher than normal. Maybe it had to do with the stress situation of the examination, the car ride or the news about Amy Schumer getting arrested for protesting Supreme Court nominee goon Brett Kavanaugh. We have to follow up on this high blood pressure situation and try to found out why the stubborn bacteria returned in Mr. Bowie’s ear. 

Blood pressure on tail

Once again, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Zen Moment

Enjoy a Zen moment in the sun. The Yin and Yang. Spiritual moments in life where time stands still. Days are now getting shorter and colder, Mr. Bowie. Forget all the bad things you have encountered. We all have things in our past that we’d like to forget. 

The future looks bright when you have Mr. Bowie as a model. 

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Building Bridges

A bridge too low. Last weekend, an important bridge over the Albert Canal in my neighbourhood was demolished, (no controlled explosive demolition, bummer…), a new and bigger bridge will replace it. This means I have to take a short detour to get on the highway if I want to drive to Antwerp, Liège or Brussels. The construction will be finished May 2019. Feel free to check out Floating Museum, a previous post about the Albert Canal. Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Magic Carpet

Fly away. Mr. Bowie’s magic carpet won’t get off the ground. Carpets fly because of lift, and the high-speed air flowing under the carpet generates this needed lift. Or perhaps you’ve forgotten something very important like magic?

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Pretzels

“These pretzels are making me thirsty.” This is one of the first popular lines to emerge from the sitcom Seinfeld. The New York Post listed the “pretzels” line as one of “Seinfeld’s 25 greatest contributions to the English language.” Seinfeld is my favourite sitcom in television history.Temperatures will drop below 30 degrees Celsius next Wednesday. Hooray! It’s about time… This heat is making me thirsty and leaving me longing for ice cream.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
