Stray Cat Harmony

There is a kind of stray cat harmony amongst my three stray cats now. For example, Binnie has frightened off my little Pippa. I miss Pippa but Binnie had to exert her authority over someone and that has to be Pippa as the lowest in pecking order. Pippa will be back, I am sure, as the food is just too damn good.

As for himself, Timmy, the boss man with the wounds he now joins me on my bed all night. He has finally figured it out that life is better on my bed than in a shed. This works well for him as Binnie gets off when I go to bed because I move my legs around too much for her. So the night shift handover is smooth.

The trouble with Timmy is that I am allergic to him and he makes me sniffle all night. This blocks my nose in the morning. Hellfire and damnation, it's a heavy burden. My girlfriend says that she would like it if he went on her bed! I said fine.


  1. Benadryl--

    Probably called something else in the UK, and remembering the restrictions on "over the counter medicine" in the UK, you might not be able to get it.

    Effective anti- histamine, which also happens to help one konk out.

    I discovered the wonders of Benadryl during the "clam pizza fiasco"- it didn't help stave off the clam effect because my reaction is not an allergy (as it turns out), but it sure helped me sleep!

  2. Thanks VG. Now, I'm over 60, I'll be able to get a free prescription is one is needed!
