We think we have troubles with all that is going on around our cottage at the moment, but just a short drive away there is a house, it really is right on the beach. At least half of it is !
This little bay is a place to find sea horses believe it or not. If it had been a few years ago, I would have had my snorkel and flippers on and been swimming away in an under sea world.
This is the bay at low tide.
We often go there on Summer evenings, not to admire the beach but to look at the beautiful stretch of scenery.
Okay, I'll admit it, we eat our fish and chips there too.
Freya, like Amie Soto Blossom only has fish. You might notice the brown paper under her bespoke place in the car. We still put brown paper under her blanket because it works. No more motion sickness. Have to admit it's not very photogenic, but it works.......
The woman who brought this house a while ago when it was auctioned had never seen this house or where it was. I'm sure she thought at the time she had brought a bargain..
The last time we were here the cliff had started to collapse.
We were a bit shocked to see exactly how much more it has come down taking the house with it. Two other houses are too close for comfort. The result of our wet weather last year.
Makes me wonder if the two houses that are now on cliffs edge have a cat.
Years go by, we often lose count of how old our pets are.
Frankie de tabby is 16 and a half. I am so thankful I was into cross stitch all those years ago.
Take one Frankie de tabby, one vet visit, one very hot day and one cat box. One ever so nice Mr Vet and a couple of jabs and cleaning a cat bite abscess.
The vet was stressed.
We could tell.
Frankie de tabby was so stressed that he panted and lay on his back with his legs in the air and his eye's started to roll. As I said, one very stressed vet.
One of us got Frank back into his carrying box, and out to the car with all the windows down.
The vet and I had a discussion about Metacam. If given over a long period of time it won't be helpful to Frankie de tabby. We have such a good vet that he left that choice to us. We have an open prescription for Metacam if Frank needs it. A good guy our vet.
Frank at the moment is okay, he is taking his pills in cheese. When the vet asked me if there would be a problem with taking pills. Nope, no problem... two words came to mind. Greedy guts.
Frank also has a slight eye problem well that was to be expected after defending his territory for so many years. We won't move the furniture.
Home along the back road, we got home quicker. Frank was out of his carry case and straight into eating.. Frank was stressed.. yeah right.
The vet told us not to bring him back for a check up unless we thought he needed it. ah, Frankie de tabby you kidder.
Frank did lie outside in the shade for a while after all the excitement and calmed down, he lay on the other side of the LOCKED cat flap where he could hear the birds cheeping and feeding. IT BROUGHT HIM ROUND TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY..
Mr Fox is around and Mr Fox has never got the better of Frankie de tabby yet !
Our beautiful Frankie de tabby.
