About Me

My photo
My name is Charlie (like you haven't worked that out!). I'm 12 years old and live in Sydney, Australia. I'm a Ragdoll puss cat and have a very laid back temperament when I'm with people I know. My favourite colour is green (grass is green and I like to eat it!), my favourite food is fish and I lurve cuddles of any description. I flop over when me Mudda says "flip flop" and I know what "breaky time" means! Breaky can be at any time of the day or night and can also occur multiple times a day! Yummo! My fur is soft as silk and I'm a bed hog! That's about it!

My Heroes......

Hiya Efurryone,
Firstly, thanks for the birthday wishes for yesterday.
I'm a big 12 year old, now!
Secondly, it's been a long time since I last posted, and here's some insight into why.
You may be aware that earlier in the year I was unwell wiv ear troubles.
Well..........that was just the beginning of my woes!
Since I last saw you, I have been spending up big on Mum's credit card!
I've been seeing some specialist V-E-T's at the
SASH (Small Animal Specialist Hospital) in Sydney.
Now, I know that mostly we don't like V-E-T's,
but the people at SASH are completely pawsome!
I was originally referred to see Dr Philippa for my ear troubles.
Dr Philippa really likes skin and ears!
Mum says she's a Dermatologist for cats and dogs.
(Harrumph!)  I don't think much of her taste for woofies!
Dr Philippa looked in my ears, ordered some tests,
(including an MRI [Major Rude Invasion]), thought a lot about it,
and decided my ears were not the problem.  She referred me to Dr Andrea.
Dr Andrea is a specialist in all things feline,
so I reckon that means she has real taste and pizazz!
I like her even if I do growl at her occasionally!  Sorry Dr Andrea!
This is my 'I'm really sorry face'!
Dr Andrea has been quite the super sleuth and says I'm having 'sea shores'.
When I told Mum, she said I've got it wrong and says I'm having seizures.
I'm a bit glad I'm not having 'sea shores' coz the seashore gives you sand
in places that sand is not supposed to be! Phew!
 So, now I'm resting up a bit while my medication takes effect
and Dr Andrea finds a good dose for me.
Thank you to Dr Andrea and Dr Philippa, and all the other wonderful people at SASH.
You're my super heroes!
