Read my considered thoughts and opinions.
I am continuing the blog of Diamond, cat sage and haiku poet.

Lynettea posted off my letter and I am waiting to get my Bequest Pet details. She thought that other cats might like to look at the program and I should put a link, so here it is. RSPCA South Australia Pet Bequest Program
They don't have all the details about it on the web site, as Lynettea received a special letter from the lady in charge.

We had a quiet Christmas as Lynettea got quite ill with gastroenteritis for days and couldn't do anything. I had to sit in front of her on a small table and keep staring at her to make sure she didn't pass away. I thought she was going to go a few times, but my efforts helped her pull through. When she was a bit better I sat on her most of the time to make sure she kept breathing. It was exhausting work and consequently I am having to rest a lot now.
Fortunately she was able to get to the chicken shop just before it closed for Christmas. She looked terrible and there was also a heatwave, so I was impressed that she managed to walk down the street. Worried too. It was a relief when she reappeared and I smelt the hot savoury smell of the sage stuffed chicken wafting down the hallway.
Otherwise it would have been a lean Christmas for me.

oh, dear! We are sorry to hear your Lynettea wasn't feeling well, Diamond. It's a good thing you were there to take care of her. We're glad that she is feeling better and most importantly, was able to shop for your Christmas dinner :) Purrs,

Dear Diamond,
You are the best nurse. My Mommy has been ill, but me has been giving her the back of disrespect as she has been quite delayed in opening the tuna cans! Perhaps I should be more like yous, do you think they gets better faster?

I'm so glad your human is getting better, Diamond! That would have been awful if she had expired before finishing the Bequest Pet paperwork!

(Seriously, I really am glad she is better! And that you are finally getting some rest from your nursing duties.)

Diamond, I'm sorry to hear you had to work so hard over Christmas, but glad to hear that your pet is doing better. It's hard to keep our pets healthy and happy, isn't it.

Sorry to hear that Lynettea got ill before Christmas, dear Diamond! She is quite fortunate that you are so attentive, and take such good care of her.

We are going to go check out your link to the RSPCA South Australia Pet Bequest Program. And see if there is anything like that here, too.
