Animal encounters about town

First some artistic graffiti.

Yes I really was made to pose beneath a C-A-T....
The horror.

Much more to my liking was next day's encounter with these three handsome huskies.

For a moment I thought it was our blogging pals Lightning, Timber and Misty.

PS from Gail: I took Bertie to the vet for a blood test yesterday. No new symptoms, but he's now been taking the Previcox tablets for his bladder tumour for six months so the vet wanted to check there are no adverse effects on his kidney and liver function. Bertie seems to be doing so well on this medication, so all paws and fingers crossed that the test results, due later today, are OK. 


  1. I think we all wish Bertie the bestest result possible. Thinking of you from all the way from New Zealand.

  2. our paws and fingers are crossed for goooood news!!!!!

  3. Hope you get good news from the vet!

  4. My word Bertie, that's one enormous pussy cat, and it looks rather ferocious!
    We're so pleased to hear that you are doing well so far and hope that today's results are good news too.

  9. That is pretty cool artwork but it's not right that you had to pose with that cat! We have our paws crossed for good results from the blood test.

  10. Paws crossed and good wishes for the boy..... We think they could be a set back if he's forced to pose with a cat again....Just sayin'.

  11. Our hairy slobbery sister hates any cats that are not us! We LOVE that photo of you under the cat art! Lovely juxtaposition! And we are happy that you are doing well. We are Purraying you have great results!

  12. Bertie, you should have slid a little to your right and posed with that bird!!!

    We wish that had been us - it would be so wonderful to meet you in the furs:)

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

  14. Wow! That white husky sure looks like Lightning!

    We're glad you're doing well, Bertie!
