Hobbes: The walking pharmacy

Due to an ever increasing list of illnesses, Hobbes now has to take more medicine than any cat should have to deal with.


  • 5mg Prednisolone
  • 5mg Felimazole
  • 1ml Zantac
  • 1ml Antepsin


  • 2.5mg Felimazole
  • 1ml Zantac
  • 1ml Antepsin


  • 1ml Antepsin

Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t like me very much at the moment as everytime he comes near me, I thrown another handful of pills or squirt a foul tasting liquid into the back of his throat.

Also none of this comes cheap. Today’s trip to the vet cost me about the same as the Kenko Pro 300 DG 1.4X Teleconverter I had planned to order at the end of the month. That’ll have to wait a bit longer I think.

Update: Just to spite me, Hobbes did the worlds smelliest poo just inside the front door as I was about to leave for skittles. I was actually sick whilst trying to clean it up.

    Poor Hobbes.

    So you have decided to get the 1.4x then?
    can you tell me where you are looking as I might be intrested in one

    The 2.0x came from Kea Photo on ebay. UR Galaxy are about the same price as well.

    Foul cat poo. Great.

    As for the 1.4x, no need. spent too much recently anyway.

    Really need to get out and use stuff.

    Unless you’ve got an f4 or faster lens, you’ll lose autofocus with a 1.4x TC.

    You need a f2.8 or faster if you’re using a 2.0x.

    Or you could go out and buy a 1D or 1Ds body :)
