Chuffed to bits again!

Somecats and humans have read my blogs! This blogging is cool, I’m amazed at the welcome I’ve received and all the help and encouragement you cats have given me. My previous blog was meant to be funny, but I think some whingeiness may have appeared to be underlying it. Well, while it’s obviously frustrating to be unable to do all you want to do, I did find the various anomalies very funny. And I’m very happy to have the astrological sign Zwilling now that the gorgeous Dragonheart has explained to me that it means “twins” in German so it isn’t, after all, a constellation in a far, far away galaxy! In fact at the time of writing that blog I was feeling anxious because my Best Beloved was in hospital, having had an easth aes esth, erm, some sort of heart attack, but yay, he’s okay and back home now!

In other news, I’ve been experiencing a lot of little coincidences lately. Like the other night I was chatting to WindDance in her camstream room and the subject of horses being sent to abattoirs came up, which is something we both hate the thought of. Anyway, earlier today I was listening to the radio and there was a discussion about how racehorse owners often send their horses to be slaughtered once they are too old to race and people send their children’s ponies to be slaughtered when the children grow too big for them if they can’t sell the pony on. This is right here in the UK. I had no idea this was going on. How could anyone send a perfectly healthy horse or pony, who has given them service and trust, to be murdered? My cousin’s daughter’s husband used to be a show-jumper and did he send his horses to be slaughtered? No way, he still has them, they are known as “the pensioners” and they are loved and cared for. They get up to mischief too, but that’s another story… Anyway, while listening to this discussion I was doing a puzzle and the “get you started” word was “abattoir”. That’s just one example of the little coincidences I’ve been experiencing lately!

I am sorry to hear that your BB was sick, but I am happy that he is back home and doing OK now.

That is a sad thing about the horsies.
