Tinned cat food.

She could get in to the larder and knock the cat foood tins on to the floor, only the catfood she didn't touch the others.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
This was the first cat I owned, I got her with the first week pay from a job as a Bedmaker at a Cambridge Collage. She came from a local rescue place but as that was about 20years ago I can only remember that I thought she was beautiful (still do). She settled in very easily.

When Tabitha came to live with us (about 1987) the vet thought she was about 3 years but I think she was older. I found her lying listlesly on the kitchen floor one morning which turned out to be an infection from a cut on a paw, sucessfully treated with antibiotic. She stayed with us through the birth of 2 kids and a major house move. For the move Tabitha had to stay with some friends as we rented for a few months, these friends already had a cat Tom, Tabitha and Tom would share the airing cupboard, he was on top untill they had a fight then she would sit on the top shelf. Tabitha was now an older cat but a couple of years later she deteriorated rapidly, this was diagnosed as liver failure due to cancer so we had to, very sadly and suddenly, say goodbye. Dispite what it says under her picture Tabitha lived in Cambridge and Manchester.

Forums Motto:

It's near Charly's birthday

Mum just noticed that the 19th was Charly's birthday, she doesn't remember it very well as he left our home before the 2nd one. He was a pale ginger cat (I think the US kitties call them orange cats) and mum thought he was the colour of barly so he was Charly Barley. He came from a farm in Glostershire. It was after I left that mum was visiting a friend who was also without a cat. They both went to the farm to see the kittens and each chose one. Mum hadn't been planing to get a cat and had to drive back to Manchester with out a proper carrier, Charly was in a big box with holes and was poking his paw out all the time. He was taken to the vet to get the operation and be checked out (mostly OK but did have lots of ear mites). Even though he had been operated he still thought he was a tom cat and stayed out all night. He missed comming to breakfast a couple of times then around Valentine's day he just did not come back at all. Mum and her kids looked all round the streets and in the empty house next door but he was not found. A few years later mum saw a pale ginger cat a few streets away and hopes it was Charly and that he found a good furever home (this was before microchips like Shaylee has were common)

Mum got Catser puls for Shaylee and it turns out I get it too, so there may be some changes but there won't lots of picture as I am an angel allready. I do hope mum will find a few more as it is anoying to look at a photo book and find nothing new.
For now I got some floating angel kittys, cute aren't they

Furrfriend Tom

When my pawrents moved from Cambridge to Manchester Dad had to go becuse he started his new job and Mum didn't want to be on her own without him as I had a baby sister and was soon to have a baby brother too. They decided to rent a place in Manchester untill they bought a new house for us. Unfortunatly they were not allowed to have any pets, not even a beautiful queen like me. I went to stay with Tom and his family.
Tom is a saved kitty as he was found on the road and had been injured by a car, he was only a kitten. His Mum and Dad took him to the vet and he recovered from his broken bones but allways had a crooked leg. Where he came from was never found so he got a furrever home. He was still a young cat when I visted, I was probably well grown up and getting mature, but we got on fine, sharing the house and garden (climbing trees) and also the airing cupboard. He would sit on the top shelf above the hot water tank, I thought he should have a bit of respect for a well grown mature kitty like me and one day I really had to tell him. We shouted and cuffed (sorry we worried his mum and dad) but he got the message and then I sat in the warmest place. I lived there for a few months in 1989/90 and then I went back to my Mum and Dad to help in the new house and with the new baby. Tom also got to help two boys grow up and lived untill about 2006
His family have two other kittys now but that is another story
