No Planet B

Waiting for spring. And summer. Early morning exercise is good for your heart. Walking in the morning has tremendous cardiovascular benefits, so Mr. Bowie gets the most from his walking routine. But today it seems Mr. Bowie regrets his decision of going outside. Temperatures dropped below zero degrees Celsius and a few cm snowfall is predicted for next Tuesday. This will be our first snow of the winter. Although Mr. Bowie likes playing in the snow, lately he prefers sleeping on the duvet in my bedroom.

Meanwhile, over 12,500 students gathered in Brussels on last Thursday, skipping school again for the second week in a row to march for the climate. “Skipping school? No. We fight for our future,” one sign read, according to The Associated Press. This protest mimics similar climate movements by students in other countries over Europe. One of the most notable young activists is Greta Thunberg, a Swedish 16-year-old who began a strike in front of Swedish parliament last year and has inspired thousands of others to do the same. The students marching for action against climate change will go on until they see real change, according to Anuna De Wever, the 17-year-old instigator of the movement. Respect! The Belgian students are hoping to protest again next week, according to the reports.

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

Just A Quick Note

4 Sec! Looking after number one, Mr. Bowie? It started 3 days ago, the sun will be up for a few seconds longer each day. Why does it make me feel so good?

Happy Holidays, my dear friends and followers!

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

 

Good Feeling Part 2

Okay Mr. Bowie… you can relax now. Yesterday, Mr. Bowie had a medical check-up concerning his ear and eye problems. Thank goodness we got very good lab results; he’s in a good condition and no problems found with his heart, thyroid gland or kidneys. Unfortunately, there’s a slight drop in Mr. Bowie’s blood pressure but it’s still a little bit too high. It looks like the new hypoallergenic dietary food had no real effect on Mr. B’s blood pressure. There’s also the possibility that stress and anxiety is causing this high blood pressure. He had a hard time during collecting his blood samples a few months ago… We will follow up this issue the next months.

Mr. Bowie also lost 1 kg of weight because he doesn’t like his new diet food. I’m going to switch gradually back to his favourite food. And of course, he deserves some extra treats at the end of the year… Next medical check-up is planned April next year. We’re going to enjoy the Holidays, my furry friend!

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

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.
