Arrival Story:
I vowed never to get another cat after tragically losing my beautiful ALFIE, but sometimes things just happen and before you know it I'm so involved with this little cat. I was helping out big time with my local branch of Cats Protection as I had so much love and affection to give to cats I needed to give something back for all the love I had got from ALFIE. Late Friday evening 20th August, Cats Protection got a call from a lady who had seen a tiny kitten wandering about by itself by the side of the road on Kensworth Common. Although CP had no pens available the kitten was brought in and stayed the night in a large cage in the head fosterers lounge. I called round the following morning to help out as planned. As soon as I saw her I loved her, she was so small and helpless and totally covered from head-to-tail in fleas which she had been treated for on arrival at CP, but there were still hundreds on her, she was so flea bitten and covered in bites and scabs, she was half starved and de-hydrated, but despite all this she was so friendly and had the loudest purr in the world to me. I cuddled her (fleas and all) and started to cry. I reluctantly put her back into her cage and did my voluntary work as planned. All the way home I was thinking about her and all weekend I kept crying about losing ALFIE, vowing to never go through it all again and facing my husband and son with the fact that I really needed to give this poor little mite a loving home. She reminded me of Chloe too. CP rules stipulate that all reasonable steps must be taken to find the orginal owners but if after two weeks a cat remains unclaimed then it becomes available for re-homing. I had to wait two long weeks and everyday I was emailing and phoning to see if anyone had come forward, but they didn't so on Thursday 2nd September Lily came to live with me. She wasn't very well at all the first few days and needed a lot of TLC and veterinary care, we don't know how long she had been fending for herself, but the vets reckon she was about 6 weeks old, he could tell this from her teeth and he also said she was a bengal mix because of her distinct tabby markings of stripes and spots. She is a little fighter and is as "bold as brass" nothing frightens Lily. She is lovely and has helped me so much to cope with the shock of losing ALFIE.

Lily has no fear of anything and is so friendly its unbelievable which is a well known trait in Bengal cats. She races around the house like she owns the place and can be a little Madam when she wants to be. Most of the time she is so sweet and is always purring. I love her. I often wonder if she was "dumped" or wether she had a home but saw a chance to get out and go for a walk by herself then promply forgot how to get back and found herself lost. If the latter applies then surely her original owners would have been frantically searching for her, calling around all rescue centres and vets and displaying posters and flyers, so I have to assume that she was heartlessly dumped to fend for herself. She has had a very hard time in her little life so far and I feel so sorry for her, but from now onwards she will only know love, companionship and devotion.

Vet visit

I thought its about time I started a diary.

I had my annual jabs at the vets yesterday, needless to say I hissed at the vet when she stuck the needle in me.

I weigh 3.57 kgs (thats 7.8lbs) the vet said I have bad teeth and will need a dental next year. My mum was very upset as I am only just 1 year old. The vet said I would probably have no teeth by the time I am 7!!!! but cats can still eat OK without any teeth. She said she had never seen such a young cat with such bad teeth, this upset mum even more. The vet said some cats just have bad teeth like some humans do. She gave mum some cat toothpaste but there's no way I'm letting anyone brush my teeth so I might just eat the toothpaste - but only if it tastes nice.

Anyway, I have "Boy" to contend with at the moment. He seems to think he lives here in my garden, he is there all the time. I am only allowed outside with mums supervision and I have made this perfectly clear to her that I don't like him despite her efforts for us to become "freinds" There is no chance of that I can tell you!!!

Do any of you Catsters in Catsterland have bad teeth? My mum is worried about me
