Re: Sad News

So sorry to hear the news Andy. As the others have said, please don't blame yourself. I know it is easier said than done and we all go through the 'what if's' - they don't help. Please don't close the door to adopting another kitty. I am sure, when the time is right, a new friend will come along. Th...

Re: Pebbles Furever home

I don't think Vivian will mind me saying, but I heard from her today and things are not going so well for Pebbles. She has come to blows with the resident cat and the new owner thinks she may have made a mistake taking her. I think it's early days yet and she should give it more time. Let's send pos...

Re: Pallina has been hospitalized: pancreatitis

I am so sorry to hear the news Antonio. I have been a bit preoccupied with Freddie and now Purdy, but I have been following Pallina's fight.

Although you were not by her side, it was nice that she passed at home in familiar surroundings. RIP little one.

Re: Vibes for little Fred

Fred seems to be doing well, though he was very fretful when we got back from our weekly shop this afternoon. I got him out of the cage and asked OH to keep an eye on him while I made our tea.

Looks like they both had a tiring day!

Re: Any ideas?

That's what we thought. But I thought it was only with vaccinations as there are some nasty adjuvants in vaccines (aluminium, mercury, formaldehyde). That I can understand, but I am not sure of the contents of AB's and pain killers?

I feel bad about this. With all the fuss about Freddie over the last week we hadn't noticed how bad this had got. A few weeks ago Purdy was having some health issues and seemed to be having trouble chewing. When she was still very young she got into a fight with something (?) and ended up with a bro...

Hopefully they have saved his leg. They will keep him in and change the bandage on Saturday. If everything looks OK...

The latest news - the leg was still too swollen today, But the vet, Luis, hopes to operate tomorrow morning. Everything crossed for then.

I don't know why, but I feel worn out. God knows how Freddie is feeling. I keep sending him loving vibes and talking to him - long distance.

There was still a lot of swelling and he wouldn't operate until it has gone down. He is hoping to put two pins in the leg, but it all depends on ...

Young Freddie was very quiet this morning and although he does like to 'sleep in', he was in Gracie's basket, not like him. I noticed a little scratch on his face and when I lifted him up to check closer he meowed in pain. He cannot put his right, back foot down and the leg is swollen. He is at the ...
