It’s just past 11 pm on Halloween night and fireworks are still going off.
This year I have my three wuffs, plus Duby the visiting ShitZu and the newly-arrived Mr Kit-Kat and Little Jet-Black  to comfort.
I’ve fed them all to the gills, dosed their water with Rescue Remedy and Calm-Eze for the past three days and still the poor canines have spent the evening huddled together under a blanket, afraid to move.  It’s difficult to spot where one dog starts and the other ends. They are doubly upset because the dog next door has not been brought in and he is howling miserably.  So I say it again, I HATE HALLOWEEN!
Thankfully the cats are more insouciant, they are still so curious about their new surroundings that the noises outside have not really caught their attention.

Not getting up today…

Duby–still in residence

2013-10-28 10.43.05

To complicate the arrival of Mr Kit-Kat and Little Jet Black, Duby is still at Baskerville Manor.  Duby’s mum and dad were involved in a traffic accident abroad and will not be fit to travel home until some time in November.

True to his feisty Shit-Zhu personality, the strange things going on in the attic have resulted in him beating a wastebasket to death and also taking a slipper hostage.
