Odin, Hvide & Bølle


Odin

Odin is now on the right way to get healthy again. Today has been a very good day for him. Yesterday we needed that the vet visited us again, because Odin was bleeding for hours. As you can see, he is very tired and sleep mostly of the time. Now he just need to sleep to heal best possible

Odins blanket

Just before Odin got ill, I started to create some new blankets first for the cats and then a new bed for Odin. I ended this today and when I showed him my gift, he answered by walking directly and lay down at this

Hvide

As you know, I love to experiment and found this materials in the city, as I haven’t worked with for many years. Hvide (White) was the first to find this new basket and he have been using many hours there since. I made the cats baskets with a side around, because they love to use a pillow for their heads

Bølle

Bølle (Bully) became very happy, when he found the next basket, which is a little smaller than the other. I did expect them to exchange baskets, because the baskets are made to fit one big and one small cat 🙂 They did not agree…..

This is how the first basket looked before Hvide found it

I’m still much behind visiting your blogs and I thank you for your patience 🙂

Update at Odin


odin-2

A spring photo of Odin, where he is happy and feeling good. He is not looking so happy today

Odin started last week to bleed from one side of his nose. Then our vet took blood tests to find out the reason for this. He found out, that Odin had an infection and otherwise his blood test looked good. There were no indications for other illnesses. Odin got 2 kind of medication and we hoped the best. The vet told me, that Odin could continue the bleeding until Monday

In the weekend, Odin started to bleed from his nose many, many times. I did my best to stop it and to keep him calm. Didn’t leave him alone at all, because he was scared, when he started to bleed, which I found understandable

It became worse and worse and more often with the bleeding, so I contacted the vet again and Odin got more tests and X-ray and needed then to go to another Vet Hospital for Endoscopy and other kind of tests, which happened yesterday. Two times of sedation in one day can be a little tough, so our Vet decided to keep him in the clinic last night to secure, they could help him, if anything would happen

I’m happy to be able to say, that nothing bad happened. Now we know, that Odin has an infection in one side of his nose and they took more blood tests today to find out, why he got the infection from beginning, to avoid this to be repeated. We should get these answers Friday

Odin came home in the afternoon, happy to be home again and I was very happy to see him again. He is now very tired and I will need to keep him as calm as possible for the next 2 weeks. No long walks and nothing exciting, because this can start his bleeding again. I got new medication for him and need to give him an injection daily to avoid more bleeding the next days

Odin has been shaved many places in the last week, so I decided to share a more happy photo of him

Thank you very much for your kind support

NB: I don’t know, how much I will be online for the next days and thank you for your patience

Walk in Spain – 9 Photos


cactus-1

Odin & I were out at a walk in our area of Spain, just before all the rain began and the autumn showed up for serious. If you look close to this cactus, you can see, it is very dry after a long and dry summer here

nature-1

This area is one of the most natural places, where we use to walk several times a week

odin-2

Odin is very awake here. Often we meet rabbits, lizards or other interesting animals for Odin to follow. I try to stay awake to avoid Odin to get too close to any snake, because he use to be peaceful and I don’t think that he would be the first to attack

odin-3

Odin loves this area, where he is allowed to run around without his leash

odin-4

A very happy Odin

odin-5

Something did catch Odin’s attention, I think it was a lizard

odin

As you can see, much are rocks here and can be difficult to walk at, so good shoes are important

olives-1

The olives are looking good now, not ready for harvest yet

olives-2

This tree are wild now, has not been kept for many years

I hope, that you enjoyed to join our walk

My life in Spain – 6 Photos


beach-1

As you might know, I love to stay close to the beach no matter the weather and the autumn is also coming to Spain now. We have had rain, thunder and lightning for some days now with few moments of sunshine.

beach-2

The Mediterranean Sea show more big waves now, as you can see in these photos

beach-3

The sky use to be so wonderful blue, but not at the moment

bolle

Bølle in my garden, he is very difficult to photograph, why the photo is not perfect

hvide

Hvide is keeping an eye with the area from the tree, Bølle & Hvide are brothers and now more than 13 years old

odin

Odin would love to play with Hvide, but Hvide is the king here, which Odin knows and also respect. Hvide does never let Odin forget his status 🙂

I use a lot of time in the nature walking with Odin. We are walking all around our area and now, where the tourist season is ended, we have more space to visit the beach too, which both of us enjoy a lot

Bølle & Hvide are mostly staying either in the garden or in the house in daytime, as they wish to, when I’m at home. Otherwise they are indoor. They are also indoor in the night together with Odin and I.

Since Hvide’s last visit in a neighbor garden, where he came to fight with a younger and strong male cat, where he was damaged too, he had stayed in our own garden. I just hope, he will continue to do that. More safe for all of us.

Wish you a smiling day

Cat – This post is part of SoCS


SoCS badge 2015

I have been busy for a while and it absolutely not ended yet. As you may know, I would like to move closer to my daughter, as lives in Germany. It is never free to move and to move so far away, from Spain to Germany is expensive. I’m still saving for this movement, as I also have both of my old cats at now 12 years old and Odin at 2½ years old.

Just to find a new house here, where I am allowed to have both my cats and Odin is a challenge. In Germany it is even more difficult, because many don’t like to rent out to both foreigners and to people with pets.

My next challenge is, that I need to find a new house and that very soon. My contract here ends 31. of December this year and it is not possible to renew the contract, because the house is close to sold.

I do really wish to find a house in an area like this, close to both beach and nature areas, where I will be allowed to walk with Odin also. I love to end our walks by the beach. I need to find a house with garden, because my old cats are used to be able to get outdoor in daytime and they do really cry, when this is not possible. I will not let them down, they have been there for me in so many years and so many different life situations. They deserves to be able to get out in a garden. Most of all they enjoy just to watch the birds and the dragons in the garden. They don’t hunt so much any longer, mostly butterflies, but they love to stay outdoor and I wish to keep them safe in same time.

It would be different, if I had indoor cats, which I had as a kid living in a big city, where it was dangerous to live outdoor as a cat. Indoor cats are more easy to move with, they just demand a nice place with soft resting places and great view from the windows to follow life outdoor.

Many years ago I needed to move from a house to an apartment with my cat. She was used to live outdoor and this was not possible for a while. This went not good. I don’t wish to repeat this situation.

My cats deserves to live a good pensioner life in love and with access to a garden. Otherwise I will destroy their life quality and this I don’t wish to.

When we take cats and dogs into our household, we also need to think in their needs, which make the movings to a bigger challenge, but not impossible, it just takes more time to find the right place to live.

What do you do, when you need to move with your animals?

Sunrise & Odin at the Beach in Spain – 10 Photos


wpid-wp-1444397908402.jpeg

We had a beautiful morning today and I decided to let Odin swim in the Mediterranean Sea from our beach. It is long time ago, that Odin had a chance to swim here because of the many tourists, as have been here in the Summer.

As you might know, we need to use Spot-On at Odin every 3. week here to avoid him to be sick by insect bites etc.There are several kind of sickness, as dogs here easy get and some die for those, which is very sad, when it is possible to avoid. I can only let Odin swim, just before his new Spot-On and then again in 3 weeks.

As you can see at the photos, Odin enjoyed his swimming and playing with balls in the water. I didn’t zoom today, but you can enlarge the photos by clicking at them. Here you also better see the beach and the area in same time
