Re: Guess the breed(s)?

Did you see how helpful the RSPCA are being????? Their response to the Mayor's comment appears to be "The birds are all healthy but will help if they fall ill".
No suggestion that they might take some responsibility and help round them up!

Re: Rain !!!

It's rained, it's rained! Ten minutes after my post it started to drizzle then became a bit heavier. Two hours of fairly gentle rain but now the sun's shining. At least my cat now has some rainwater to drink!

Re: Rain !!!

It just seems to miss you Marigold! Friends in Suffolk said it was pouring yesterday, another friend near Pulborough, W.Sussex, had two hours of steady rain on Tuesday. We've had the odd ten minute spot of drizzle - not even enough to make me put the car hood up :(

Re: The heat is on

It's cooled down a lot in Shropshire Lady A, I had to shut the windows about 9pm last night. Think it went down to about 10 overnight and it's 15.5 outside on the north facing side of the house. No sun yet, overcast high cloud. Friend in Bristol said it's been raining since 8.30 - spoiling the Ballo...

Re: prepare to start scratching!!

That would explain it then Lady A. Just to keep the record straight I'm only talking about two or three bites at most because by that time I've taken action to deal with the problem. I've never had a flea jump off a cat onto me - it's always been well away from the cats, which is why they bite. If t...

Re: prepare to start scratching!!

I don't like using organphosphate treatments either Marigold but needs must ... One of the semi-feral cats where I used to live got a tick on/in his head. I'd read somewhere that if you gripped them with tweezers and twisted them round and round in one direction they came out without breaking. To my...

Re: prepare to start scratching!!

I had a similar problem when I collected my three kittens Lady A; they obviously came with just a few fleas which multiplied rapidly and the only thing that worked was Stronghold which is only available from the vet. I had to spray all the carpets ... Now I only have one cat who lets me comb him reg...

Re: Fire

One heck of a job then getting them all out safely. Good job there was another hydrant nearby ... I really struggle to get my head round people's thinking!! It's on a par with people abusing ambulance staff because the road is blocked. What do they expect will happen - that emergency vehicles will p...
