Got Gold!

I had the best news recently. This photograph of jellyfish was awarded 'gold' in a recent competition held by the photographic society I am a member of. This means I will be published in their magazine and entered into the annual competition with other images that were awarded gold. I'm chuffed to bits!

Of course this is a wonderful antidote to my everyday bill paying job where I continue to (barely) tolerate things. Sammy is wearing his cone again. After his leg nearly healed he chewed the scab off and so it started bleeding again. Back to square one. He's allowed to have the cone off when he is sat on the sofa with me where I can keep a close eye on him. He loves to have his ears and neck scratched when the cone comes off and closes he eyes with pleasure and purrs like a nutter. Bless.

That is a beautiful & unique photo. Congrats! Hope it turns out to be something special for you (i mean a good stepping stone, or something).

Hopefully your boy heals quickly. I don't really know what to suggest. I know tea tree (good for humans in healing skin issues) is poisonous for both dogs & cats. But i would think Manuka honey might be safe? Anything else i use to heal my skin i'd be afraid to use on my cats. Hope he is better soon.

Poor dear....The Cone thing sounds so awful. I'm glad he gets to have it off with you showering "lovies" on him....He sounds like one Happy Cat!
