Adapting

Last night I snuck off to play some Lord of the Rings Online and went to an ‘instance’ with my friends. During a brief drink break I popped in to see Diesel and noticed a certain lack of collar around his neck. Oh yes, our boy had learned how to wriggle out of it. No small feat with only one front paw and the floor for leverage. Scar looked quite sore and angry, so administered some anti-inflammatories (he’s strictly off meds now, but vet said we could give him some if he needed it). Collar has been tightened a little – we were a bit wimpy about it at first.

But despite the little scare, I feel an enormous sense of pride that he worked it out. If he can manage that, he can adjust to anything!

And now,  here’s a picture of Malarkey who I know I only ever refer to as Larky, with her ‘baby’ –  the company she’s keeping while Diesel is separated (for the record, I keep the door open for him unless he needs to eat, cos otherwise a helper comes to assist with the food!).

They're not related, they just look it!
