Side Effect

Leave me alone. Attending the Veterinary Hospital once or twice a week created a funny side effect on Mr. Bowie. Recently, he seems to prefer laying and sleeping in his carrier box.

But it’s a shame his healing process feels so slow. However, the latest results showed he’s moving in the right direction. Hang in there my friend, everyone loves you.

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

Newsflash #18

Life is no bed of roses. Unfortunately, Mr. Bowie’s eye condition is deteriorating. We are trying a new medicine the next week but it looks like surgery will be necessary… What’s gives you peace of mind when times are tough and stressful? More espressos and chocolate?

But hey, we had a good day yesterday. We celebrated Mr. Bowie’s Gotcha Day. We are 8 years together and I invited some close friends for Mr. B’s party. And there was a little surprise for the human too… Thank you so much, my dear J.

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

In the Sick Bay

Wounded eye of the tiger. Lately, Mr. Bowie has had bad luck, health-wise. I took Mr. Bowie last week two times to Venhei, a Veterinary Hospital. An injury of his lower eyelid got infected and Mr. Bowie became very, very sick. The vet disinfected the wound and Mr. Bowie received acute treatment and proper medication. I need to put a thin line of ointment in his eye, 3 times a day. Thank goodness he is feeling much better right now. Get well soon, my furry friend! Don’t worry, I will look after your catnip plants…

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

Eight

Mr. Bowie turns eight today. I don’t remember much about my eighth birthday or any of my birthdays of the past, really. But hey, it’s not about me, it’s about our little big hero, Mr. Bowie.

My Dad took his bike, went for a ride and surprised us with a visit. We had espressos and chocolate. Happy Birthday Mr. Bowie! Catnip and treats for the furry ones.

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

Flashback #16

The guardian angel. A few months ago, I heard a hard bang against the window and I found a stunned bird outside. Apparently, a sparrow flew straight into the window of my house. Mr. Bowie, a natural born ornithologist, was outside and checked if the little one was okay. It reminded me of a similar story years ago. I placed the bird in a box so he could reboot in peace and quiet. I kept a watchful eye to make sure no potential predator (the neighbour’s cat) swoop in for a quick lunch. After 5 minutes the sparrow was recovered and flew away safely.

No animals (sparrows or cats) were harmed, killed or eaten during the shooting of these photographs.

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

The Oldest and the Youngest

Life goes on… and on. A week after my sister passed away, my father turned 92. It was a very strange day. We had a small celebration with chocolates, cookies and coffee. It all happened in a serene and depressed atmosphere.

A few days later some local officials, dressed in traditional folkloric costumes, payed tribute to my Dad because he’s one of the oldest inhabitants of the village. This is a regular annual tradition. Many happy returns!

Thank you so very much for your help, kindness, compassion and sympathy at one of the most difficult times of our lives.
