We took our resident stray cat to the vet yesterday, got him all cleaned up and sorted some drops for his skin condition.  

Turns out he’s an old man, just really small, and a quick test confirmed he has leukaemia.  

They don’t put animals down in Thailand (even old, sick ones) so it will be a case of feeding him when he visits and letting him shelter in our garden when he wants to. 

Taking him back for the chop today which should stop him getting in fights with other cats.  He’s quite happy right now but let’s see how he is later!

Our little friend is still here!  He know he’s not allowed in the house so he naps on the front doorstep - as close as he can get!  Don’t know who he is?  Catch up on the blog here: http://bit.ly/1hFBtW2 #thailand #street #cat

OK, before we get started let me state that I do not go out looking for animals to take in!  They just seem to choose to adopt us…

And so, it isn’t that surprising that after a month in our new home, this little guy has turned up on our doorstep.  Literally, he’s scaling the ‘cat-proofed’ fence and has taken up residency on our front door step.

He’s missing a few teeth, has fleas, is missing…

Life of Phu: an update

Life of Phu: an update

Sometimes I post opinionated pieces on the political/educational/moral state of Thailand, other times I post pretty pictures I’ve taken.  Sometimes, I just post a little update of all the nothings I’ve been doing; what should probably be put on a postcard and sent home to grandparents but never is.  This is one of those latter posts.

I could have gone metaphorical with this week’s challenge from the Daily Post, but as it would happen I have recently been on a little walk with my camera around Phuket Old Town which is filled with stunning, colourful…
