The rusty-spotted cat is the smallest wild cat in Asia and rivals the black-footed cat as the world's smallest wild cat. It is 35 to 48 cm (14 to 19 in) in length, with a 15 to 30 cm (5.9 to 11.8 in) tail, and weighs only 0.9 to 1.6 kg (2.0 to 3.5 lb). The short fur is grey over most of the body, with rusty spots over the back and flanks, while the underbelly is white with large dark spots. The darker colored tail is thick and about half the length of the body, and the spots are less distinct. There are six dark streaks on each side of the head, extending over the cheeks and forehead.

Did anyone see the gorgeous program about big (and tiny) cats? This was one of the tiniest, even fully grown they are only kittensize. I'd love some in our sanctuary, but are extremely rare so I doubt if we can. I also got a picture of Black Footed cat.

Afternoon to one and all. A day of secretarial duties for Dad, has taken most of the time.
B is taking him to the fish and chip shop in a mo.

Will have to write more later, but just wanted to pop in and sort out some cakes for T.

Hi to Joan, as you can see we have had a busy day, phoning and sorting things out with Dad, most things are up to speed now, so that's good. It is going colder, I hope the rads are all working well and you are both keeping nice and warm.

The puskins are lovely, I am sure we can have some in our sanctuary, they are very rare indeed, little rusty spotted ones and the black footed ones, bless. Thank you for the info and the pictures :)

No, we didn't see that programme on big and small cats, I am sure it will be on catch up, so we will look for it. Sounds very interesting.

I hope you are ok and not too ouchy, if needs be I wills end some jars of sparkles, Silver Moon makes sure there is plenty of wonderful magic in them.

Glad you managed to gather some hours, there will be plenty left, as some of our day has gone missing again :? :? Carol will be grateful though, as hers are always vanishing too.

Just a few cakes to choose from, well, Toni wanted some to take out, so ones wish is my command.

Dads wing mirror has been repaired and he has decided to hand the car back to motability. One of the things we have been chief secretary of today. We will go in tandem on Tuesday to take it back to the dealership. He is happy about it and we are relieved, we would rather take him out and about, as we have been doing for months anyway.

I am glad I am 40 years old again, even though I feel over 90 :shock: :lol:

Our window cleaner is not as regular, it can be weeks and weeks, then we just pop into the park office and ask the receptionist who happens to be his Wife, to remind him that we need to see out of our windows please :lol: :lol: Then he appears. We often see him around and about in the villages.

Some more good vibes will go down well with Toni's neighbour, the more the better. Poor love, she needs to be at home asap. There are so many bugs in the hospitals at the moment.

Hope the shopping trip was fruitful and you had a buggy. Not that I would mind sitting in the cafe, watching the world go by.

I hope everyone else is ok, taking care and keeping warm.

Let me go find something sweet.

Will catch you later, love to all XX Aidan

muffin tin key lime pies --- pinkies out :D

Good job I can type with my pinky out :wink:

Lovely cakes for afternoon teaAidan thank you :)

As for the take-away cakes please may I have one of each and a large tub of cornwall's finest clotted!

I am very relieved to hear Dad has made the sensible decision. I wonder whether he was only driving so he could take Mum about when she was so ill :?

Good news neighbour is no longer in isolation and no more pinnies and masks of shame :D You would love her she is a proper sweetie highly intelligent and kind and in no way any trouble at all :)

I hope things will continue to improve for her. Silver's (and your) sparkles have definitely worked at least partly :)

At least the window cleaner will come if you give him a shout :wink: Lovely to show off the ultra clean voiles :)

The cruise is to Jamaica then Belize then Guatemala, Honduras, Honduras again and back to Jamaica. Miss Sleek has been on pins today 'Yes to the Dress' is back on telly t4591 Not a word has been said to her regarding the above secret. Hermione of course transported her over to Pepe's she is soft about their young love :)

Barbara's singing was amazing last night she had indeed been at the cider :lol:

Thanks Barbara I think my neighbour is feeling better just to be out of isolation and able to chat to other people...even if they are a tad confused and she isn't!!!

What a voice last night at choir practise!! Well done you :) Maybe a tiny bit less cider though next week someone said they could smell 'booze' :shock:

For the cruise itinerary see above. I will be taking my new cases so feel free to jump in.

My neighbour is so lovely you would all love her. :)

Oh Kath!! I love them especially if they only grow to kitten size!! How wonderful :) Yes please I think we shall have to rescue some for our sanctuary or a couple can come and join cuddles in the café?

Hi Joan :) I hope all is well with you and Sue. Still overcast here today, but dry I suppose so could be worse!


Carol I think I know the site you got your crutches on. They are a bargain and the same ones as you get from the hospital. That's you sorted for a good while now :)

I hope the Church meal was nice last night.

Everyone is quite right about 70 being the new 50 we are so much 'younger' these days in appearance and outlook.

Well I'd better get on I hope I didn't miss anyone.

Love to you all

Toni xxx

Evening to you all.

Hope you have all had a good day mine has not been bad I am pleased to report the metal object for heat and hot water is behaving very well, long may it continue. isn't it amazing how stress levels affect our pain I don't know if it dose you, but it certainly dose with me, since Wednesday my pain levels have certainly eased. After lunch with Mr T today, and because my friends husband only returned home from hospital yesterday we did not meet for our usual coffee. So I had quite a long meander around the shops (not that I have the money to do buy anything until Monday.) :lol: followed up by a nice coffee and a chill out by myself in Costa. Don't know whether you recall a while ago I said that Mr T had lost one of his hearing aids well he at last took himself up to audiology at the hospital to replace it ,now has a new one, and he is now waiting for them to send him a bill for £80.00. well that serves him right for not keeping them in all the time.

Toni do you think you could stow me away when you go on your cruise as I could do with a nice cruise holiday. the site I got the crutches from was Essentials Aids they were reduced anyway but yes a bargain as I got them for £3.50 less than the full price for one pair and that included post and packing, The only problem with them was that I forgot to order the open cuff crutches that I have I have always had before so I have got to get used to the closed cuff ones but that's no problem. Church meal was good and enjoyed and we are now out again at the same place tomorrow evening as we are taking youngest daughter out for a birthday meal instead of a present this year, her birthday was last Saturday but she could not make last week as she was busy. think your right about being 70 and being younger in outlook and in appearance.

Aidan Pusskins in the sanctuary yes please. I might be coming up 70 but sometimes it feels a lot more believe me. as I always say the brain says yes the body says you joking. :lol: :lol: ooh Key lime pies how scrummy must have one of those before I go. oh yes have sprinkled the sparkles on the jar and it is now full up again for when needed. and Promise i will throw only sparkles and not coffee :lol: :lol: metal heat and water thingy is doing very well at the moment long may it reign. and boy oh boy it feels great to say it. we are now down 13 days we go on the 26th the Friday and meal on the Saturday and home on the Sunday then actual birthday on the Tuesday when Mr T and myself will go out for a birthday meal on our own. I will try and get some nice photos and put them on FB. I was referred by GP to physio when this all flared up and all they did was give me six weeks and never a mention of them supplying crutches. but I do get indefinite DLA higher mobility rate so it isn't to bad. church meal was delicious at the same place tomorrow evening for youngest daughters birthday.


Joan all is going well with the metal thing long may it last.


Love and sparkles to you all t4591 t115006

Evening / early morning, to one and all.

Pinkie typing is quite difficult Toni, but essential, with such delicate little pies :lol: :lol:

I will ask that one of every cake is boxed and shipped. It will be quite a large box, a bit like one the removal men have :shock:

Since Mum passed, he has driven probably three times, just into town and back, less than 10 miles in total. Other than that, we have been with him and B has driven our car. He doesn't mind being taken too and from, we don't drive long distance anyway. Skipton is about the furthest we go.

I think he realises that the car has hardly been used and is serving no purpose now, we are 50 yards away and he also knows that he is no trouble to us, if he wants to go somewhere, or has appointments etc, plus we always take him shopping etc.

Hoorah, no more pinnies of shame, those sparkles are working their magic, so they will continue :)

I am sure I would love her to bits, I remember you saying she was a very clever Lady and kind too. I want to be her nurse and oversee all treatments. Do tell her Matron Bubbles has her in his thoughts and prayers.

I have sent you some teeny little Unicorn sparkles in mini jars, to take into the hospital and leave under the pillows :)

Image

Oh the cruise sounds wonderful and then some, I bet you cannot wait. You might have some stowaways in your luggage, which I sure you won't mind, we won't be an ounce of trouble. Hermione will have us there in no time, if we :lol: :lol: :shock: don't all fit in one case.

I heard the patter of tiny paws at 9 as our Sleek and Pepe went to watch say yes to the dress on tv, while reclining on fluffy bedding. Pepe made a magic tiara for her to try on, he is getting better with the new wand. She was over the moon. No word of cruises or holidays

That is good to hear, the lovely Barbara was in fine voice, but there was a whiff of cider...........ooops, some extra strong mints next time Barbara, Hic. :? :lol:

I see we are in for some snow at the end of the week and some very frosty nights, minus 7, in town, so colder out here in the woods. :shock:

Hi Carol Good to hear that the metal thing in a box, which gives off heat, is working well.

Stress has a great deal to do with pain levels, I am certain of it. Our muscles tense and then in turn affects our joints, a bit of a vicious circle. My cardio always used to say, don't get stressed..........errrr, right, that will be the day. He doesn't say it now, I just take extra calming tablets. :roll: :roll:
I am glad to hear that your pain levels have eased, less stress and some magic sparkles, some positive vibes, from all assembled, do help as well.

A meander round the shops is nice, better if we all had a pot of gold. Coffee too and then Mr T has been to audiology, do they not supply them on the NHS, my Mum always had hers free of charge, through her GP referral

12 days to go now, till your mini Birthday break. Wonderful, then you are going to come along with us in Toni's suitcase :)

That's not on, the physio should supply walking aids etc............grrr. I remember seeing them for quite some time, until they said there was nothing more they could do. I even saw a specialist physio, who showed me some different movements to try - I tried it, nearly fell over and crunched my back into spasm, so he gave up very quickly.

Good food on the Church meal out, very nice. Back to the same place with your Daughter for her Birthday tonight, Happy Birthday :D :D

Right, I had better move myself, a little potter before a cup of T.

Off to the GC for brunch today, Dad is looking forward to it and I am always up for going there, any day, any time :lol: :lol:

Then some groceries are needed. Think that is about all, home things of course, washing, washing and more washing.

Love to everyone, here and about. Take lots of care XXXX Aidan

A breakfast selection today

Well that is great news Carol! Image Looks like the 'metal thing that shall not be named but is very complicated' is fixed!!

That's £80.00 lost Mr T :roll: Still at least he'll be able to hear soon!

Of course your friend must stay in with her husband until she's happy he's ok. Essential aids was the same company as I thought you'd used. Closed cuff is neither here or there really is it? I expect your youngest daughter will enjoy a belated meal out for her birthday :)

I am right about people looking and acting younger when I look at photos of my own Mum and 35 she looked nearer to 50! I think it was the fashion and hair-dos along with their expectations of life.

Morning Aidan

Face is pressed against the window waiting for my large parcel of cakes t4591 thank you!!

I suspect Dad is also relieved to know the pressure is off him and he can relax now and be chauffeured by you two bless him. Those two tiny prangs will have scared him too I bet. A good decision all round :)

I will tell her you are thinking of my neighbour Matron and will take the unicorn sparkles to sprinkle under her pillow. She really is a lovely lady who everyone loves. I have to say most of the nurses and HCAs adore her too and so they should.

Shall we get Hermione to bring you aboard the cruise any day you like then? m0150 There will be sun, but sea air is cooling so I hope about perfect.

Of course the cats would never miss 'Say Yes'! reclined in fur and enjoying their telly. Miss Sleek hasn't taken her tiara off yet!! Pepe is doing well with his Christmas wand!!

Snow? Ice? Right I will get Paul to fill my coal scuttles ready :shock: tcold

Enjoy the GC always a treat (unless you go too often of course!) with Dad. I hope he is doing ok without Mum :?

Lovely breakfast spread there! Scrambled egg? Perfect and a cold buffet too yum! Thanks :)

I'm not sure what we have planned for today although I have a feeling Paul is off to a car show :roll: Bless him!

A quick Woo-oooo! To Joan Image

Love to everyone!

Toni xxx

My right hip is giving me gyp! :cry:

We are watching Richard Widmark in Panic in the streets on Talking Pictures channel, and I'm typing in semi darkness as it's so gloomy outside. So I'll brighten the place a bit. m0150 m0150 m0150

Afternoon to all, a rather grey and dull ish day here.

Has the parcel not arrived yet Toni? Image

It should be there soon..........................

Dad is quite happy to be chauferred by B and yours truly. We said we will take him out to different places, he won't be stranded by any means, all of the neighbours would take him into town etc. as well.

Thank you for passing on my well wishes to your neighbour and for sneaking those Unicorn sparkles under the pillows. I am sure she will have made some new friends out in the bay / general ward.

Good to hear that the nurses love her to bits too. That is how it should be, every time.

Yes, that is a perfect idea, for Hermione to transport me to the cruise ship, as and when, ie when the buffet is open, mind you, they never stop do they.....cakes, 24 hours :lol: :lol: If it is too hot out, Barbara and I will stay inside and check out the refreshments.

Bless, Sleek is very happy with her Tiara, looking good girl.

she looks adorable

Image

Pepe is looking at the new trends in clothing, for the spring season. I think we have two fashionista's :roll: :roll:

The snow has gone from Friday, to Tuesday :roll: , it would, seeing as we are going to Skipton then :roll:

The GC was as good as ever, a nice relaxed brunch, bacon and egg muffin for me and sausage and egg for B and Dad. Shared a portion of chunky chips and left room for my scone :) It was super busy by the time we left.

Hope Paul enjoyed the car show and what did the Ladies get up to?

What a shock, to see someone in their bra and skirt, doing the shopping Joan ! some folks have no shame. People go in their PJ's
and nighties - oh my Mother would have fainted. :shock: :shock:

So they fixed the rad in Sue's room and now it is cold again, just what are they playing at. I would be asking them just how much all this has cost them, probably enough to pay for umpteen new boilers. So annoying that you cannot even be warm in your own rooms.

Hi Barbara, you are right, the apples are of a particularly fine variety, enabling ones voice to traverse many octaves. Just the one mind, it is potent stuff.
Dad still thinks he is about 30 :lol: :lol: we have to remind him sometimes, just to make things a bit more real. He said today, oh, that lad is in the paper shop (another man on the park). LAD - he is nearly 70 Dad.

He is coming round to being without the car now, we will be happy when Tuesday comes and it is signed back to the dealership. Then we will enjoy our Nero's visit.

Definitely time for those warm joggers, I have some new ones, but they are more PJ type and rather thin, so it gets a bit chilly. :lol: :shock:

Hope your middle GD is enjoying her stay.

Oh dear, your hip is giving you the ouches Kath, that will never do. I will send some t4591 t115006 and sparkles over, to help as much as possible.

It is very dark, has been all day really. I am all for having every lights on in creation :roll: Good job they are all low energy.

Oh the little puppies are lovely, we need some of those, we can carry them round in our bags and shopping trolleys.

I would be frightened to death of treading on them, bad enough with three puskins, but they know to avoid my potterings.

Well, I had best be sorting out some cake, for T time.

I hope you all have a lovely meal out Carol.

Hi to Christine, Elizabeth, Mig, DD, Toady, Charrisse, Kerrin and all.

Will catch up again later. Take care all XXX Aidan cakes to follow..............

Afternoon all

Early today as I am out at daughters birthday meal tonight. the last of three meals out this week well I'm not expecting any weight loss this week that's for sure, although I have tried to choose wisely so we shall see. because I have decided that I must weigh on Tuesday whether I am out of target or not so that I know what I have to do to get back in control.

Kath the puppies are so cute. really missing our dog I can't believe it is coming up for 11 months since we had to have him put to sleep.

Barbara I love meandering around the shops but what with the viral cold thing I had before Christmas up until recently I have just not felt like it, so yesterday made a change. Mr T only has his self to blame with the hearing aid he wont wear it all the time in fact they spend more time in their boxes than on him. his excuse is they are too loud when he is anywhere noisy but cannot be bothered to adjust them, so I don't suppose having the new one will make any difference he has tv or music turned up loud indoors because he is to lazy to wear them. music blaring loud and then he has the nerve to tell me I need my ears tested when I don't hear him and he has to repeat what he said but I have to do it all the time :lol: men arrrrgh. Metal thingy is still ok beginning to trust its ok now.

Joan hope Sue's radiator is working soon.

Toni Loving the dancing emoji I would be doing this if only I could. I think people these days do have and expectations on life now days. only problem with closed cuff crutches is that I keep forgetting I cannot just put them down without taking them off my arms tricky when going to the little room at night when you are desperate :lol: :lol: but I will get used to them only had them since Thursday so got to give time to get used to them. yes friend will hopefully be able to meet me next Friday. sure daughter will enjoy tonight. Mr T will hear if he wears the things.

Aidan love the mini jars of sparkles very convenient to take out and about. Metal thingy is behaving beginning to slowly trust it will come on when it is required. Stress well its all around us so please how can you avoid it I ask. I wish I did have a pot of gold mmm that will be the day. I think the Physios. DRs and the like where we are don't like giving these things out its bad really but there we go what can we do about it nothing. yes out tonight making three meals out this week but she couldn't make last week when it was her birthday on the Saturday.

Ok its time to leave you all now hope you all have a good evening

Hi to one and all, chilly and clear out tonight.............

I hope you have had a lovely meal out with your Daughter, Carol. I was looking at the restaurant and the food / venue, looks really nice. Those chips look very tempting.

I read Mr T's review and he is very pleased with the food, staff and service. Did he wear his hearing aid? Or is that a sore point. Maybe some magic sparkles on the new one, will encourage him to wear it.

Don't worry too much about the meals out, I am sure you will be on track, you have been very good again at home, nothing wrong with a little treat when you go out. I would try and find an ear trumpet and when Mr T says you need your ears testing, just bring out the ear trumpet and say "pardon" :lol: :lol:

I cannot believe it is nearly a year since your lovely doggy was put to rest. ((()))

I have open cuff crutches, admittedly they are easier for moving arms in and out. I also have the fisher handles, that are shaped to your hands. Cannot cope with the straight handle ones at all.

Good to hear that the metal heat machine is working well. Those sparkles will always come in handy for all manner of things. The little bottles are perfect for popping in a pocket or bag.

All surgeries are cutting back, certainly on drugs etc, they are often changing them to other suppliers, dependent on cost. As for most services we don't do to badly at all, but the population density is that much lower, which makes a difference I guess. Wrong, but, as you say, what can you do about it?

Pepe was nattering to Miss Sleek, Mrs Darcey, Cuddles, Tomicat and Jericat, on a group skype call on his new phone. There was a whole load of chattering and chirruping going on, not sure if they are hatching a plan, Sleek was talking of her stash of Pendle mist :? :? Her Tiara was admired by all.

Hope you are all ok, has it been shed night? Any sign of Barbara :shock:

It is high time I went into the forest, not been in for ages.

I had an inkling that Silver Moon would be there, looking magnificent of course.

He has been to the Sanctuary and checked on all his fellow lovelies, they are all fine, suitably sprinkled with magic sparkles, even the warthogs are quite amiable and the emu's didn't chase me round the field.

We have had a quiet evening, siesta time was a waste of time, but never mind, it rested the bones a little.

B is busy with his minute bead work and I just keep pottering and doing little bits and bats.

I had best move. Hi to everyone, around and about. Take lots of care and keep warm and safe.

Love to all XXX Aidan

Fruity pancakes for breakfast

Joan you are quite right we must stop meeting like this!!! I am not impressed Sue's radiator is still not working?!! :x

That woman half undressed in a supermarket :shock: Honestly I thought onesies were bad enough too :roll:

Barbara your singing was lovely I'm sure it's the cider, but maybe you have had a few of Silver's sparkles on you?

I wonder whether our Gkids will think we looked old in current photos....hmmmmmm :? I can't imagine my Paul not driving :shock: Let's hope your husband continues to drive well and safely for years and years to come.

I had a set of cases for Christmas so you can all fit in one or maybe Hermione will bring you over and pop you on board the cruise?

Fingers crossed my neighbour continues to improve now. She deserves to be as well as possible she has enough to deal with :(

Kath I hope the hip isn't too bad :( Have you got some bush-babies with you?

Are the little doggies for Joan? That is very thoughtful of you as it is to brighten the pace up with some sunshine rainbows and love :)

Us ladies had a lazy day Aidan (I cleaned out the fish tank did a couple of loads of washing and some hovering) Charley came over with her GF so lots of ladies :D

Paul's mum was just like your Dad!! she was still a home-help until she was 70 helping 'old-dears' one or two younger than herself!!

Sleek loves her Tiara! How sweet she looks asleep with it on (Lucy is following the story too!) we had a look in the back of her lickle house yesterday where she had stowed it safely :D

All the cats are envious of it aren't they? When they are on a group chat she positively screeches with laughter!! A good cat-ch up does them all good.

My neighbour will make friends for certain and of course everyone loves her. The nurses have a soft spot too for her husband and keep sneaking him food when no-one is looking. He is there for 11-7 unless someone (like me) sends him off for a break/food/to do his jobs. He helps out too helping her get ready for nightime etc. unlike some visitors who think the nurses should do everything :roll:

Hermione will bring you over for sure and you and Barbara can nip down for a spa treatment if it's too hot. Kath can go for a walk (short I hope) on deck. Joan can zap past o her scooter followed by Carol on her rollator. mig will be on the trips with me no doubt Kerrin will be halfway up the climbing wall before we know it!!

Thanks for the cream for my tarts Aidan lovely :) Mmmmmm...... sigh :)

Pancakes too!! Lucky me! Yum :)

What a good idea Silver sprinkling magic dust in the sanctuary. that will help everyone. Wonder whether they can make our 8 legged 'friends' (yes there are several now al endangered) look sweet and furry when we go past???? :?



Carol you are very wise to weigh-in on Tuesday. It will force you on track although I know you do make sensible decisions when you are out. 3 Meals is an awful lot for one small person!!

At least you treated you daughter :)

That smiling dancing emoji was definitely you I had to search him out specially :)

You and your friend will be talking for England next Friday - what are you knitting ATM is it something for the new arrival to be?

Right I must get on I hope all our other café friends are ok

Love

Toni xxx
