Lazy Monday

The weather is grey and rainy. What a perfect day to stay at home from work.
Nah...I haven't taken a sicky, just a couple of days off work to stay home with our dear four legged bundle of fur. She is fine though but a week ago life was tough with a collar and body band and a very unhappy cat that had to be hand fed the first night.
The next few days she went back at the vet's day care and they took care of her while the stitches were healing and we were at work.

She is now a lot happier. The body band is off and she can walk again herself, but a lot of time is used for rest and she is spending hours in the beanbag by the heat pump. I can't blame her. Who wouldn't after such an operation (spayed)?

A couple of weeks ago we started on project "heighten the flower boxes". Extra planks were added, and later more dirt and new plants / vegetables will be added to the boxes. We are not there yet though.
Work is keeping my hubby away from the garden project and the weather is not always on our side either.
But one day I will have more pictures for you all.

Project "heighten the flower boxes"
Temperature has been down to +5C here and it is cold in kiwi land.
Have a nice day and stay warm. Another day by the heat pump for me.Bliss.

At the vet

A week ago, little Bella had to visit the vet to be spayed (it is part of the contract and this way she would be free to roam around outside during daytime). At the office, the vet asked if they could do a few tests and later had to take even more tests as they were abnormal. Serious illnesses could be the result (liver and bone diseases) and we were all a bit worried what would come next.

A whole week went by with worry and a few tears.
However, on Friday we got the good news. Bella's tests were fine but she has to do some new ones in a months time. Just to be sure everything is fine.
On Monday she will be back at the vet to be spayed. Hopefully it will be fine and she will be a happy cat who can run around outside, spy on the birds and catch flies and other insects.

..and we are happy again...
