Re: Cheyenne lost 9th October

Hi nannymcfee. That is very good advice. Unfortunately living as I do on a large housing estate she could have gone in many directions. All of the houses have enclosed back gardens thus making it impossible to know which ones may have cat flaps. Even the empty ones. I've done the flyer/Facebook bit....

Crewella I am so sorry to read of the passing of Little Minnie. Even more so that you had taken the time to respond to my post, knowing that you yourself were approaching this sad time. Blessings to you all. RIP Minnie.

My very nervous 4 year old feline Cheyenne has gone missing. She was last seen on Thursday evening 9th October. She is missing from the Shakespear area of Bicester Oxfordshire. Any assistance will be very much appreciated.

Hi Jo. I lost my 16 year old (Rudi) a female a year ago this month. The heartbreak in the weeks after her passing was almost unbearable.

Animal Communicator

First apologies to Julie and Barney as this is a spin off from their post. Sarah T1 mentioned animal communicators. Is there such a person in the UK?. Although Cheyenne has come a long way in her first year with me. We are still quite far apart in the bonding process. However, that said, I am sure m...

Hi Julie and Barney. Well if it was the ice bucket challenge just hope he doesn't nominate you and hubby for it. I'm sure Barney will be fine. How nice to see how much you care for him. What a lucky boy he is to have been adopted by you and hubby.

Hi Julie & Barney it sounds like he has got a slight touch of what Cheyenne has lots of. I am sure you are aware that bonding with Cheyenne has as yet, to get off the ground. Once she found the great outdoors that is where she wanted to spend most all of her time. At least Barney comes in at Cur...

During this hot spell she has abandoned her shed and cupboard and now lives in some bushes beyond my garden perimeter. ...

Hi Julie. It was good to hear Barney returned. Cheyenne, my most of the time wanderer always returns. It knows where it's best off. Unlike Barney affection is not on her priority list. When not wandering I can normally find her in an upstairs cupboard or in the garden shed. I think Barney will be o ...

Re: Cheyenne going AWOL

Thanks for the collar advice Meriad. Unfortunately she won't let me get within 10 foot of her let alone put a collar on her. But it is good to know that there are other wandering cats out there.
