A Revisit of a Guest blog by Billy the Cat….

Billy wrote this a couple of years ago, when Covid wasn’t a word that existed….strange how it’s hard to remember a life before Covid now…🙄…so I thought Billy was just the cat to make us me smile…..😊

 

Hello, Billy here 😺

I’m watching helping Wendy in the garden and she’s gone off and left her iPad for me to sneak a cheeky blog………..

It’s been a while since Wendy’s had the time to potter in the garden with me due to the success of my her book. Obviously it was my part in it that sold the book, but I’ll allow her to take some of the credit.

I hope you’ve all had the wonderful wild life catching sunshine of late. I’ve been in and out all night trying to tell Stuart and Gemma how wonderful it’s been in the middle of the night, but for some reason they weren’t impressed with me……can’t imagine why as it’s the best time of the day. They then complain when I sleep all day, when they want their cuddles, but they can’t have it all ways…..

Anyway here I am today, surveying Wendy at work……I can see the bird feeders have just been filled too, so there maybe a little treat in store for me us as the bird life joins us.
Oooooo yes I see one now up in the tree – excuse me a mo……

Missed it!

What better way to spend a day than lazing in a patch of shade while Wendy does all the work……..oooooo, I can see her coming back…..maybe it’s time for my sorrowful look by my bowl, after all it’s at least half an hour since she last gave me a few biscuits……😹

After all I do believe it’s a well know saying:

Dogs need care, Cats need servants……….

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
