Re: Bonded pair adopted by my niece

These two look gorgeous, together and individually. How nice that your niece gets a sleek elegant shorthair tort and a cute fluffy blue kitten in one package. My two favourite colours I think. I sometimes wish Abby had a cat friend, but judging by her total disdain for every other cat in the shelter...

Re: Hot water bottle?

"molly in the bog" - love it :D I think my grandparents had one of those stone HWBs. Were they known as 'pigs'? Alice is a gorgeous colour. Reminds me of Pushine, a cat my mum had when I was little, and also a tortoiseshell but shorthaired. Update from the basket: Abby wasn't noticeably impressed wi...

Re: Hot water bottle?

You're all so helpful, thank you! I have a hot water bottle of my own. (My feet are icy as well.) So I'll let her 'borrow' that for a day or so and see how it goes. Mine stays warm-ish til morning too. The stone ones sound intriguing. I'll check those out and the heat pads too. Alice, that's a reall...

Hot water bottle?

Hi everyone, I'm thinking about ways to heat up my cat's sleeping place. It's a wicker basket next to the radiator, lined with 2 wool jumpers and a t-shirt plus some foam stuff. During the day when I'm in the radiator does the job, but at night and on days when I work at the office, I think she gets...

Sheffield: Lost grey and orange cat, S2 (Found)

Sad to say that my cat Abby has gone missing. She left the house on the evening of 2 November and didn't come home. She is one year old and quite a long, slim shape (not cobby). She was a stray before coming to live with me, so she is streetwise and stealthy. She's intelligent and very curious, inve...

Re: Affection and batting/clawing

Thanks both, that's a great idea about the quiet hissing. I'll give it a go next time and the pencil too. She's definitely well-meaning (if cats can be described that way), we're just negotiating our boundaries and getting to know each other. I want to make sure we don't miscommunicate, cause she's ...

Affection and batting/clawing

Hi everyone, New here, first post, please be gentle :) I have a recently-adopted 1 year old female. She was a stray who was found with her kittens outdoors, and was at a shelter weaning them for a few months before coming to live with me. When I met her at the shelter she was aloof and wary, but now...
