Re: Mia - Chapter 3

Hi Dave no need to tell you but as those little uns are young & you’ve netted your garden they’re safe aren’t they? Pebbles has Oriental in her & she’s very talkative with a demanding meow & very much the observer. Another reason why I had my pergola enclosed with cat netting was if I had trades in ...

She was only a kitten & I used to put plastic garbage bags down & when I heard her n the bags in the early hrs...

Hi are you able to organise a payment plan with your vet. We have an organisation here Vetcare I think it’s like a credit plan but interest rates less than credit cards. Good news about Tiger & yes vets do cost but we do it for our fur babes. Vivian

Hi Mollycat no personality change. Mayday was a Tortie but not naughty unlike the Tuxedo terror, Harper, who I’m sure thinks her name is “Naughty Girl” :lol: And Mayday had the softest fur. Miss her to this very day. She definitely left paw prints on my heart. How’s Molly going?
