Caturday Saturday

and this is Kiki, all grown up...
Kiki, as she is fondly called, has a showcat name of Furrydance Gweek. Gweek is a town in Cornwall. I have a theme of naming my cats after places in Cornwall.

Some, I was lucky enough to visit with Mike. Gweek was a town we passed by, and as the country roads were winding and narrow, led to me making little squeaks of fear when Mike got to close to the gorse covered stone walls along the roads.

He came up with the little ditty of "You've never squeaked til you've Squeaked in Gweek" and that is how the name of Gweek came to be on one of my cats.

  3. How awesome that you got to visit some of those places. My ancestors came from Devonshire. But I have never been there.

  7. Thank you so much for your kind comments on my post about Arthur the cat. Despite the prednisone and fluids he has declined a bit since I wrote that post, although at the moment he is resting comfortably (I think) in his favorite chair. I am hoping that he will be comfortable enough tonight and tomorrow so that I can take him to my usual vet on Monday a.m. -- she and her tech have been taking care of him since he was a kitten, and I'd like them to be there with him at the end -- but I suspect that I might need to act before then. It is so hard, trying to choose just the right moment.
