Carry on...

As the Queen said, keep calm and carry on. Turns out that the lumps in Jack's belly are an important part of Jack - which does make me wonder a bit about feline anatomy. Seems that because he's lost weight his insides are now closer to his outsides. Hurrah! Hurrah! NOT CANCER!! All he needs is fattening up so he's now on a special protein diet - just like a weight lifter! The vet took a look at his bald bits and suggested he'd been in a fight (unlikely) and said we should wait to see if the fur grows back. Jack came to visit the library after the vet and seemed very sprightly on his pins. He said hello to the folks, drank the library cat's milk and went for a stroll over the boss's desk. Then straight back to bed where he still is several hours later. So all is well in catland. Thank you for kind thoughts. And we got ourselves a ps3 to replace the xbox so peace once again reigns at the House de la Chairman.

so glad to hear about jack... and he may have been the victim of a young 'tom' - they're reknowned for beating up old boys - it's all part of claiming their territory and they won't hesitate to 'take on' and old and infirm boy - quite often they will claw their backs along and at base of spine where they can't reach - sounds horrid but it's all part of 'survival of the fittest' - and of course night time is the worst time for cat fights...
