I dropped Leila off at the vet's this morning - apparently, it's not enough that the poor dear has to stick to a special diet from now on; according to the vet she also, badly, needs to have her teeth cleaned. And I feel bad about not being able to pick her up in 10 minutes, but having to leave her there for another couple of hours until I can get away from the office, if I can get away, an hour early.

She's such a sweet cat, even-tempered and affectionate, and just a little stupid (but endearingly so); big and black and cuddly. She never strays more than 3 paces away from me, and has this exasperating habit of licking my eyelids if she gets the chance. She means well, but it bloody hurts!

Come Good Friday, she'll have been with me three years, and in those three years, I'll have had to take her to the vet's on no less than 7 occasions. She's costing me a fortune, but I wouldn't want to be without her ever. She's my moggie.

Ah, G, don't worry - she'll be okay. That's cute about her licking your eyelids, although I agree that it must really hurt.

I feel the same way about my kitties. Be sure to bring pictures of Leila and Clio when you come in June, and I'll bring pictures of Bandit and Scout, my moggies. Well, and pictures on Ron and Eric too lol!

Re: eye-lid licking...

Last Christmas, DH had what looked like a long red rug burn on the bridge of his nose. It was from Buddy (our late kitty) licking DH's nose while he slept. That man can sleep through anything, even having the skin licked off the bridge of his nose! This is how he appeared in our family Christmas portrait, all red-nosed. ("DH, the red-nosed husband...")

What's moggie mean? (Such a cute word.) They're expensive little beggars, our little moggies, eh?

Moggie? It's just another word for 'cat', same as kitty or puss...and I'm not sure, but I think it may have originated in the North (I used to live in Leicester, which is where I learnt of its existence). It's quite universal now; people in the South use it and all.

Is it pronounced as though it rhymes with doggie? It's cute as heck.

Yes, yes it is.
