What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?
When I wrote my first post about Louis Catorze, his skin allergy was at a very bad point and the aim was to find a cure. Somehow I just imagined that I would end up chatting to the humans of other allergic cats, and that one of them would mention some obscure medication or ingredient which would magic-bullet Catorze to super health.
This never happened. Although we have discovered steroid shots, which stave off the problem to a certain degree, nothing has cured him. And I have learned that keeping the little sod comfortable is more important than putting him through endless tests in a quest to find a solution, especially as that solution may never come.
So, now, my blog is just a bit of fun, and I am very lucky that it has brought me friends from all over the world. I don’t do anything to promote it, I don’t sell anything or monetise it, nor do I monitor the stats (mainly because I don’t know how). Writing about Catorze relieves the huge amount of stress that comes with being his
second seventeenth favourite human* and having to provide him with a luxury lifestyle whilst being treated with contempt in return. And, if I can make one person smile, or have one person realise that they have it comparatively easy with their nice, normal cat, then I have succeeded in my mission.
If you are a regular follower, or if you have ever shared my blog, thank you. It really is such a treat for me to be able to write for you, and having your support certainly makes up for all the grief caused by this furry, toothy psychopath.
