Re: Judged for being fertile? Would love to rescue...

What an amazingly silly reason! We have been very lucky our cats found us. But many years ago my husband was turned down by the local dogs home because he was on a main road. Not that he would ever dream of letting the dog anywhere near it. It turned out for the best, by word of mouth he ended up wi...

Re: One of THOSE days!

Ohhh what have I started? You all made me laugh out loud. On the hormone front, a few weeks back I found a very good site full of ladies sharing such tales AND some ideas how to help. I know this is not kitty related but it really tickled me. One lady said she was SO desperate that she would 'drink ...

One of THOSE days!

This morning I was woken up by the sound of retching coming from under the bed. That was Bobby's 'good morning' to me. It's bad at the best of times, but when you are half-asleep and menopausal (hot flushes, not sleeping etc) it was a GREAT start to the day! :roll: Feathers are SO indigestible. I cl...

Re: advice on food please.

Oh that's lovely. Sounds like you are making a real friend there. Bobby came in soaking wet this morning and stood very patiently while I toweled him dry, lifting his feet one at a time - which must be hard for a 3 legged cat. He loves having his tummy tickled. If I tried that with the others I'd be...

Re: Thinking of re-homing - I can't do this anymore.

Yep Jacks is right. You can't go on like this. It is not fair on anyone. Many years back a friend of mine had a large, laid-back Tom cat, Keegan. She took in a small, very nervous girl called Mavis. She got her because other friends had a baby and Mavis had reacted in the same way as your cats. Both...

'Mr Frisky' is right. We have raised two cats from tiny kittens. The first one, Willow, was my first ever cat and it was all new to me. We managed to get hold of some kitten formula and a dolly's feeding bottle. That was 11 years ago - now most pet stores have feeding bottles. Willow and Bobby would...

Welcome to CC. Sorry to hear about Jester. Just a thought, if he is hanging around his old home but won't go in, would he come to strangers (the new folks) if they had food for him? He must be very hungry by now. If he is too timid to come to strangers perhaps the vet that your sister used could loa...
