Re: 1year old Kitten wants to move in with the neighbours HE

He sounds adorable and if he popped into our garden I would make a fuss of him too! It is understandable that you feel the way you do. But are you being too hard on the neighbours? I have mentioned this before on CC, but some years ago I lived at the end of a cul de sac. Our next-door-but-one neighb...

Re: Still a tubby kitten.

Cats, like us humans, are all different. Are you watching what she is eating? Is she finishing off another cat's tea? She sounds like our Gracie, a lazy bones who likes her food! She too has a thick, healthy coat. Another one of ours, Purdy, is very slim and active and a menace to the local wildlife...

Re: I thought it was a grub on my cat's neck - now I'm perpl

Booktigger is right. Our Gracie got a whack on the bum that turned into an abscess. She is such a fatty we didn't see it until it was quite big. She too was very poorly. We had it lanced and she was given abs. She is fine now. But I think we only just caught it in time. I would say get it sorted ASAP.

Re: Warning about Morrisons own brand Cat Tunnel with dangle

Makes you go cold just thinking about it! I know some toys say not to let your cat play with them unsupervised, but you would not imagine they could be so dangerous. It is a lesson to us all.
Hugs to you and fusses to kitties.

An update on the update...
Bob continues to improve. He had several stitches out yesterday. But the area over his shoulder blade has not yet closed properly. Probably something to do with him bouncing around like a mad thing! Still wearing his bandage -blue this time.

To all the kind folks asking after Bob - he had a dressing change this morning and the wound was dry and a lot cleaner. The vet was pleased with him and I was cock-a-hoop! He has also put on a little weight. His new dressing is yellow, he looks like he is in the Tour de France! He is fast asleep on ...

Re: Should I report my neighbours to the RSPCA?

Mmm, that's quite a problem! I've never had much luck with the RSPCA. Can your local Cats Protection help?
It sounds like something needs to be done for the poor little fella. I wish I could be of more help. Let us know how you go on.
We could always hope they move house and leave him behind.

Re: Denver

I think Kay is right. The cat is probably used to your garden anyway. So if he is use to doing so and your new neighbours don't mind him popping back there should not be a problem. Feeding him in your house asap is a good idea. Some years back we lived at the end of a cul-de-sac. Our next door but o...

You are right, she went quickly, doing what she loved. That's small comfort at the moment, but hopefully it is some comfort.

Go easy on yourself Joe. You are going through a very stressful time at the moment. At times like this we all do daft/weird things. It is normal in times of stress and grief to do and think strange things. You are not unusual in this.
