Re: A nice poem

That is so right, Bobbys Girl! Glad you all like the poem, the card is up in my "keepies" drawer now (most cards are in the bin soon after events!). She got it in honour of my new cat, Denver who is joining me in a couple of weeks time after my holiday. I'm off out today to get some cat toys in for ...

A nice poem

This poem was on a greetings card my sister just sent me. I hope you all like it! God was in His workshop Creating perfection He wrapped it up in silken fur And filled it with affection He then gave it two angel eyes And finally, placed it on my lap! Thank you, Lord, for this wondrous gift I think I...

Re: Yes...it has been asked before, but...

My girl Kitten was on Metacam for a good year before she died for her arthritis. It didn't do her any harm, in fact, she was really active, jumped on the bed very well and literally bounced her way up and down the stairs! I was warned to keep an eye on her kidneys, but I didn't have any problems. Wh...

Denver

I am getting a new cat soon, he currently belongs to my neighbours who are moving and they can't take him with them. My main query is should I still keep him in for a few days after getting him (like if he came from another area) or can I let him out at once (as he lives next door, he knows the area...

Re: Should a one eyed cat be kept indoors?

I can only advise based on my experience. When Kitten went blind in 2011 she adapted quickly to an indoor life and she'd always been an indoor/outdoor cat - in fact, she coped better with her blindness than I did! I think it depends on your area a lot too - eg is your road quiet, can you secure your...

Hi Sacha
I don't think she is due, probably just checking out safe places to have her family! A neighbours cat made friends with us and decided to have her litter with us. Quite an experience! Perhaps your Vet could give an estimate of the due date?

Please let us know how you get on.

Shelly and Jill - its on YouTube if you want to watch it! Best to suspend disbelief when you do (and bear in mind it was made in the 70s, so the effects are not what you would call "modern") but for a half hour of old fashioned slapstick style comedy, plus cute animals, its hard to beat!
