    Thanks all for a fun night. Sorry to hear about Dr and Mr Cake's punctures. :(
    Lovely to see you all. Hope everyone who didn't show is well again this morning xxx

    Will aim to come down for a brief while on 2 wheels.

    Puss is still not well. When I came home he was decidedly poorly but has perked up a little now. Going back to the vets tomorrow and will probably get the results of blood tests. Worried that this won't have a positive outcome. :(

    I'll tell you in a few weeks if it works in practice.

    I feel your pain.
    I've rejoined Slimming World mainly for healthy versions of winter comfort food - burgers and chips, chilli, cooked breakfasts. So in theory you can eat all the food all the time and still lose weight.

    Am feeling really guilty.
    Puss is not well with his eyes again, so I took him back to the vet yesterday morning. He usually has a lovely temperament, even at the Vet, but he was in a mood like I have never seen him in - growling, scratchy and very unco-opeative. Usually the vet can do what she needs to without him being anything else but docile. Then she brought the assistant in and started to clip his claws. I have never, EVER seen him so angry, yowling, growling, scratchy and I had to laugh. In fact I couldn't stop laughing at him.

    He has actually been really unsettled yesterday and today, and keeps hiding under the table and sleeping in unusual places. I now feel SO guilty for letting him have such a horrid time yesterday and laughing. Maybe if I post this here he might forgive me for being so rotten to him?

    Anyone going for drinks tonight? I promised myself I'd get out on my bike today and it 'could' be feasible for me to cycle to the Captain Kidd.

    This looks fun. Haven't been on my bike for a few weeks though. Will aim to go out this week and clock up some miles before making a decision.

    It is tough but you have to persevere. I suggest that you
    (A) ensure that you put way too much food down before you go to bed, so you know the cries are for attention and not because of an empty bowl
    (B) get a water spray bottle so every time the cat sits there meewing at an ungodly hour, he gets sprayed with water. He will soon learn what is acceptable behaviour.

    When I had Sammy v7, he owned me, and the vet told me I had to treat a cat like a recalcitrant child, and not let them get away with unacceptable behaviour. It might take a week or so, but the cat will quickly learn. These days with Sam v8 I just have to pick up the water spray bottle and the cat runs out of the room.
