Good News for Rio

Rio went back to the hospital today and has continued to make good progress. He can now have his splint off during the day, we need to replace it at night for a few days, but he can now start to use his jaw.

The vet was pleased with his progress and determined that there was a good degree of callus forming, so the jaw is fairly stable. Obviously he will continue to need a high degree of supervision for a while, but at least he can start to live a normal life.

We visited our friends last night who own the Norsvana Norwegian Forest Cats and they gave me the 2007 Norsk Skogkatt Society Calendar. The image for January is the painting I did of John and Caroline Tipper's Ch Tiganlea Prince Dante.

If you like Norwegian Forest Cats then a visit to either website is worthwhile.

That is certainly good news.
I am glad to read that.

And thank you for the link to the Norwegian Forest Cats.
I will pay them a visite.

I think you must be very proud that your painting is on the calendar.
