Hi Folks yes Lilith we’re in Qld but the cyclone up North. We have organised fireworks eg Sydney Harbour Bridge, we have barges on the Brisbane River. Some rebels manage to get their hands on a few loose ‘bangers’. Alas I couldn’t get into NY as upset about Freddie. Last night watched the “Military ...

Re: Is my cat beautiful?

Your Shini has similar coloured eyes to my Pebbles .. an oriental-x. Not blue or green, turquoise like. A Japanese vet told me that Asians with blood type B result in similar coloured eyes. Think she’s beautiful. Good luck. Vivian & the Famous Five from Oz.
