D + 365: What a difference a year makes!

It's a year since the gastric surgery. It's been a bumpy road, but in hindsight totally worth it!

The look of guilt, caught with perfect timing:

Of course I was not going to attack aunty Pino, what on earth makes you think that?

I'm fuzzy

I'm fussy about a lot of things. I admit. But today, I'm also distinctly fuzzy. Over the past year, my body has had a lot to cope with. One of those things was adjusting to the new levels of (mal)nutrition. For months on end I've suffered from terrific hairloss. Luckily, I had quite a bit to start with, but I'll happily confess I'm glad to see it's starting to grow back in its full glory. Apparently there was a lot of electricity in the air today, as all the shorter bits stood on end as I got home. I look like a blue-eyed porcupine!

Odd log

Spring is definitely in the air, so time for another long walk with Ziva.

We found this tree trunk at the edge of the forest: 

There is only one possible explanation: the OCD beavers are invading!!

Let's GO!

I confess: I still play Pokemon Go. I'm a hoarder, I like farming and walking is good for me. That's 3 major criteria met. So today is a happy day, because we can finally catch owls. Yay!

"Mommy, you still like me best, right?"

Old & cold

Pippin is 15 years old. That's a pretty respectable age. Lately, he's not been doing too great. He's lost his appetite, lost a lot of weight (and he was a skinny bugger to start with!) and he's rather cranky. After increasing the number of feedings per day, his health and mood improved drastically, but he was so matted from neglecting himself, that I had to clip a lot of his coat to get rid of it. Never a problem in summer, but it's mid-winter! Poor puddytat!

The solution came in the form of a tiny dog coat. Not only is he nice and comfy now, he also blends in with the rest of the cats perfectly. Camouflage kitten!

Close, but no...

The city council probably meant well when they decided to create a parking space especially for the disabled. But I think the person tasked with the execution of said plan, was probably suffering from some disability themselves?

What suprises me even more, is that I'm apparently the only one that's noticed. The sign is so dirty and dilapitated, it must have been around for ages!
