Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Wow these postings make me realise how tame Arnie is by contrast really! So again he was kept in today as I was working at the office (working from home tomorrow that will surprise him!), he's had 3 hours out this evening from 6:30 to 9:30, he chooses to come back in at that time (I suspect his bell...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Oh and, the pigeons, yes there are lots of them here. Mostly because a large, run down old building (a former job centre) is currently being converted into flats and they've taken the roof off as the first stage of construction thus rendering the pigeons homeless. The pigeons are otherwise known by ...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

I have occasionally felt like those fairy tale characters, for the life of me can't remember who (Hansel and Gretel maybe??) who follow a trail of crumbs (somewhere?? - sorry, I'm such an old lady!!!) ...... except I follow a trail of poop with a wet cloth on a wooden floor. Or even worse, trying t...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Y'know I'm sure this cat is getting revenge on me for being neutered. He's done some new things this weekend (apart from spending most of the weekend preventing me from doing things at my desk that really need to do by wanting to go out.. then wanting to come in, then wanting to go out.. then wantin...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Well oddly he's not too bad at the vets. He objects to having needles stuck in him (who doesn't - he would only allow half a vial to be taken for his FIV test, I think he went all Tony Hancock on the vet: "A whole vial? that's very nearly a paw full!"), but otherwise has always been pretty laid back...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Thank you everyone for your kind words, Arnie has just come back in having had a his morning stroll around outside, he decided that 7:30am was the correct time for his slave to wake today! Though he's showing me he's learning new stuff, he's finally worked out how to climb up the rear balcony - he's...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Where is Jackson Galaxy when you need him!!?? You sound like a lovely chap and Arnie is very lucky to have found you. I'm wondering, with all the fighting going on, has Arnie been tested for FIV and any other nasties, and had vaccinations for everything he can be vaccinated for? I agree, Belka may ...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Crikey, you're a glutton for punishment! :lol: I don't know what else to say but 'Good Luck'!. Whether you move or not, I hope you will keep in touch with us and remember what the others have told you about withdrawing your attention when your cat/cats play rough. You will be torn to ribbons otherw...

Re: A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help

Thank you both, yes I know he's a typical cat. He was neutered 20th June and even that wasn't easy, apart from him managing to force open the bedroom window and jump out onto the floor below from a first floor window 2 days later, he had an infection meaning he was peeing every 2 to 3 hours for a we...

A quiet stray cat adopted me and became hard work - help!

Hi fellow feline friends! Around April this year, a tatty, flea infested old looking black cat with some apparent difficulty with walking in his hind legs started visiting my neighbour and I daily (my neighbour has her own black cat and has a cat flap so naturally went to her first). Over the coming...
