I went to the British Museum yesterday. In the Great Court, the very first monumental sculpture you encounter is the magnificent Lion of Knidos.
Durr. As if I ever could.Read More
A video of Rani, my Bengal cat, playing with a hairband in her box. Hairbands are her favourite toy by far. You may notice that the box has been systematically chewed at the edges. One day, soon, it will be no more.
Also, I have a very noisy dishwasher.
A peacock has a standoff with a young kitty. The cat is just fascinated by the peacock's feathers but the bird isn't having any of it. The rustling you hear is the sound of it's feathers - part of it's display, or a warning to the cat maybe. The cat is distracted by a human and the peacock makes it's move. It's all over very quickly.
It's Caturday again. Rani is under here and probably will be until her dinner time. Sleep is healing for her and blissful for me as she's not yowling the house down and sitting on my keyboard.Read More
After a two week sojourn for R&R at my mum's while I went on a trip, Rani came home today. She is much recovered, though not quite back to 100 per cent. Very roughly, off the top of my head, I'd say about 89.62.Read More
Rani's home! So great to have her back. I'm such a big softie I've melted with joy. She's much improved on the state she was in yesterday...Read More
Poor Rani. I've just left her at the vet with a very high temperature (103º F) and breathing difficulties. It's more than a cold or flu though. They're doing X-rays and blood tests and stuff.
Apart from arthritis, she was given a clean bill of health last Saturday. But in the last two days, she wasn't right and was very ill this morning, hence the emergency run to the vet.
So, just having to wait and see, for now. Today is not a good day.
Poor old Rani went to the vet today, who determined that she's suffering from arthritis which is giving her a lot of pain in her lower spine and back legs...Read More
Yes it's that day again.Read More

Rani's amazing glitter-fur is something cameras really struggle to pick up. If you look closely, you'll notice that the blanket weave around her neck is considerably more resolved than her fur. (Click the image to see all of it).Read More
