Re: A Street cat named Bob

Yes I've read the book. Fantastic. I think I actually posted on here a while back about it. I also always give to the Big issue sellers. They sell that magazine to try to help themselves out of awful situations. They are mostly lovely people, one from around here was a university student from a love...

grunting

I'm sure I might have asked this before but I can't remember the answers. Why does Theo grunt??.. its not loud, just a quiet grunting noise. Sometimes he just sits in front of me looking at me grunting continuously. Or when he's looking out of the window he does it. I'm just curious :D

Re: Putting my cat to sleep TOMORROW - worried it's not right

Its perfectly normal to feel like you do. We put our cat Theo in a recommended cattery when we went on a weeks holiday and I,ll never do it again. He's a complicated boy anyway but he was so unhappy. Didn't hardly eat and hid at the back of his pen the whole time the lady said. When we picked him up...

Hi Gary. This sounds so like my cat Theo. Ive written all about him on here. We had him for a full year before he even made a sound. The vet said he had probably been "traumatised" as a kitten and wouldn't meow until he felt safe. Then after a year be finally meowd. A weak little warble but so nice ...

Re: My cat is rejecting me.... any help?

Cats are independent. Mayby your overpowering her. It all sounds a bit intense to me. To the point of being obsessive. Just leave her be and let her come to you when she wants.

Re: Anyone know of an animal communicator for deceased pets???

Awww its sad when pets pass over but I also think we should let them be at rainbow bridge in peace and happy. I wouldn't feel right trying to "call them back". But I feel the same about humans too. Once theyv gone their at peace and your memories keep them with you.
