The weather has changed from spring being summer to nearly summer being winter. In short it's cold !

Arthur took a last sun bath in front of the kitchen door

Because the next day he tried to warm up against the radiator which was cold of course, but now I had to turn the heating on again !

Rosie thinks that in my bed it's the warmest place and waits until the rain and cold is gone and she can go out again to watch birdies and eventually catch a mousie or two.

Pookie has recovered from her ulcer, it is now a a dark little spot but not open anymore. Anyway it hadn't cut her appetite ! She bravely ate her antibiotic pill wrapped in minced meat, and as yesterday it was the last day for her medication she was very disappointed this morning that there was no minced meat ball anymore ! and I had forgotten to buy a little more.

This is not surprising because I am preparing my trip to Istambul where I will stay for 10 days together with my friend and neighbor Dominique and I have my head full of travel preparations ! We will leave tomorrow.

I had been there in June 2007, but only for a day and that was not enough !

The cats will be spoiled by Mr. G. they surely will terrorise him especially Arthur who wants his mortadella and other unhealthy treats, when I am away ! He is a clever cat and takes advantage of the situation !

But next week there will be a link here, and anyway I will continue to post on my blog Writer's Cramps if I don't have any troubles with Internet connections, just to write my holiday diary.

Have a great time, Gattina. Bet Arthur has a blast too with all that spoiling. Isn't it nice to have a trusty cat sitter?

Oh I loved Istanbul, and because I love pistachio nuts I was in heaven. They sold them very cheaply in bags. Fresh roasted pistachios! Yum!
The Mosques and the shopping areas are also fun to see.

So you are having weird weather too? Hope you have all lovely weather in Istanbul. I'm glad to hear Pookie is better and am very sure your gang will be quite spoiled by Mr. G while you are away. Have a wonderful time!

Weather certainly has been dramatic this year with hot and cold - for us, too. Though we can't complain compared to what so many others are going through weather-wise this year.

Have a great trip to Istanbul!

We are so glad Pookie is doing better. We can understand how she could be disappointed at not getting any more meatballs. MOL
