Toilet obsession

As may have been alluded to in previous posts, Maggie has developed somewhat of a toilet obsession. She follows or barges her way in whenever we go, and she goes in there to howl at night to wake us all up.

She came in with me tonight and purred her heart out. I picked her up so she could watch the toilet flush, which she really enjoyed. I brought her in to my room to cuddle on my bed. She stayed there for a while, then hopped off and went out the door. I thought she might have gone down to see Mum and Dad in the lounge, but Mum Facebook messaged me asking if Maggie was up with me. I said no, that she might have been in the dining room window. I went down to have a look around and she was nowhere to be found. I could hear a faint snuffling, so I knew she was somewhere.

I opened the toilet door, and what do you know…

In her favourite place.

She came out for a bit to give Dad (who was lying on the floor trying to coax her out) some loves. I put a blankie in there so she wouldn’t be cold on the floor in there.

She is now singing in the shower (her other favourite spot).

Young Maggie

I found an old photo of Maggie and me. I think she’d be around 2 or 3 there; she’s 14 now.

Our hot water cylinder has been leaking for the last few weeks. Last night, the new one was delivered (it’s an old-school type of model so we had to find one and have it shipped from Christchurch). Anyway… the plumbers have been here installing it today. It took around 4 hours. They left a whole heap of stuff on the back deck while they were working and they had to clear out the linen cupboard because the cylinder is in the roof cavity and the entry to the roof is through the ceiling of the linen cupboard. Maggie has been absolutely fascinated with all of the goings on. She actually went outside for the first time in around a month. The plumbers had made a nice tent that she assumed was hers. When she came back inside, she had a look around in the now-empty linen cupboard. It seems today is another moderately good day. She’s also had a few bites to eat of Rosie, D’arcy and her own food (on her own), and took her anti-inflammatories this morning without issue. We also had plenty of cuddles under the covers since I was home from work.

Small weight gain

Off to the vet again. She was a bit difficult to get into the cage this morning…


Maggie had a small weight increase of 10g. She’s now 3.61kg.


It was a bit of a mission to get her medication into her this morning. Luckily, one of the nurses was there to help.


Afterwards, she was a bit put out with me, so I gave her a brush and played dress ups 😛

Look at that suave little lady!

Adventures outside!

Maggie decided today that she wanted to take a trip outside, so naturally it was babysitting time.

Jesus Christ, Maggie was affectionate and meowy today She kept trying to pull me as close to her as possible so I could cuddle her… which naturally involved tugging at my arm with her claws BOY, is she strong! At several points she was trying to push herself THROUGH me, at which point I had to notify her that, unfortunately, physics would not allow it She even gave me love bites on my forehead
