Arrival Story:
I got a call at work from someone who had heard I love cats. Her son had found Josie in a supermarket car park but they couldn't keep her and she was looking for a home for her. Even as I was explaining that I couldn't I knew that I would. I used Henry's Catster Diary by way of reference - she wanted to be sure that Josie would be loved in her new home. How Josie came to be abandoned I will never know. She is so sweet natured and soft (and perfectly house trained). I am so glad I took her on and cannot quite believe she hasn't always been around.

The latest on Mollie

The news on Mollie is good. She didn't move to her home when we thought as Wylma had some concerns. It is much better to make sure you have thought of everything and are certain this will be a cat's furever home than take one on and then find out you can't and you have to take it back.

Everything got sorted and Mollie now lives happily with Wylma and is very much loved and glad to be away from the RSPCA. Wylma cares a lot about her and is still learning about life with a cat and my mum has been answering her questions.

At first Mollie wouldn't eat and my mum suggested that Mollie might be like Toby and prefer fish flavoured food so she tried that and Mollie did. Toby will eat other but he likes fish best of all.

Other good news is that Wylma has a new job. She was only temping at my mum's office and needed a furever job and she has one starting in two weeks which is great news.

My good news is that I've found a new hiding place in mum's bedroom and Toby the Terror hasn't spotted it yet. I saw him run to my bed and I laughed because I wasn't there. Mum and Toby then went to look for me and mum even went outside because she didn't know where I was and I felt all safe and pleased with myself.

Then mum came in and she peeked in the cupboard and saw me and she shook her head and said to Toby that she had no idea where I could be and suggested they play chase toy mouse instead of looking for me to play with and he agreed (slightly too readily) and my secret is safe for now.


Molly will be home today

Molly has been at the RSPCA a lot longer than anyone ever thought she would as she had a whole string of health problems but last week they announced that she is all better and can go to her Furever home with Wylma. Wylma has visited Molly often and the shelter say they don't often see people quite so determined to give a home to one special cat.

Wylma is a bit nervous as she hasn't had a cat before but we are sure Molly has chosen wisely and they will be very happy together.

I wonder if she would like a very annoying small black kitten as well! He was licking my head this morning, the cheek of the boy!


My birthday

My mum forgot my birthday - so engrossed in the Toby! Shame on her and thank you to all my Catster Friends for remembering. I have treats and special foods now.

He is still here. Sometimes he is Ok but I wish he wouldn't bounce about like that. I touched him and he does feel like cat which is odd - I thought I would be able to feel the springs.

When he gets shut in at night I get to cuddle with my mum and I like that. He grumbles but he gets her most of the rest of the time. Mum says he can come out when we are Ok together so I am in no hurry.

We have news of Molly. She is still at the RSPCA as she has a very bad eye. It had looked better but is getting bad again. They are afraid she might lose it. Wylma sees her regularly and remains determined to bring her home as soon as she can; with one or two eyes as long as she is OK.
