Arrival Story:
I was a fosterer for Keighley Cats Protection (no longer in existence) when I had a phone call to say a mother cat and her two kittens were living wild in some allotments. A friend and I went along armed with a trap and some sardines and after about 2 hours the mother cat went into the trap. The kittens went to investigate and we managed to catch then one at a time by throwing a blanket over them. The family then came into my cat pen. They were all suffering from cat 'flu and Alfie was very poorly and not expected to survive. They all responded well to treatment (Alfie needing a further course of antibiotics) but it took six months before they stopped hissing and spitting! Their mum (now called Freya) went to a very loving home and I decided to keep Alfie and his tabby brother Albie. When Alfie was a kitten he never washed himself but was constantly washed by Albie. They still sleep together and are devoted to each other. Alfie is very affectionate and loves to be picked up and cuddled and will give kisses when asked! Albie is more reserved and loves to be petted but only when he requests it. They are much loved members of my family.

Sadly, Albie went to the Bridge on 03 November 2008 and Alfie was devastated. He misses him so much still (April 2009) and seems to have lost some of his spark since his much-loved sibling died. He now sleeps with me and will not sleep in the lounge any more where he always slept with his brother.

The World According To Alfie

Thankyou for all the Love

It's 2 weeks and one day since my little soulmate Alfie went to the Bridge. I still can't believe it and just ache to hold him again. He was so precious to me and always will be. When I was recovering from breast cancer 7 years ago Alfie never left my side and was such a comfort to me. In fact all my kitties were so good and seemed to know but Alfie was the closest and we've always had a strong connection. I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to thank all our dear friends, feline, canine and human for the outpouring of love in beautiful messages through pawmails, groups and FB, cards, rosettes, stars etc., but I've found it very difficult to put down in writing.

I even received a phone call from Australia from dear Spotnic's mum. I could hardly talk to her for crying but can't wait until she visits England in October and we'll meet at last!

Thankyou so much for the Get Well wishes and gifts before Alfie passed away. I had so much support and my dear friends were willing Alfie to get better. They all meant so much!

Today is Armistice Day

Today is Armistice Day (also known as Remembrance Day) which commerates the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.

On Sunday we have Remembrance Day in England when we remember all the brave Servicemen and women who served in World Wars I & II, the Falklands War and those who served and are still serving in Afghanistan. There will be services and the laying of poppy wreaths and poppies at all the centotaphs across the country.

I'd like to also remember the Service Animals in all wars, the sniffer dogs especially who save countless lives when they sniff out unexploded bombs and their handlers too.

My mum's wearing her poppy with pride.

Today mum's friend visited and they were in the lounge drinking coffee when mum's friend said "one of your kitties has just been in the litter box in the other room". Mum said "Oh, it's Snowy".
Did you know that our mum knows who has done a poop in a litter box (there are 13 of us) just by the smell.

I wonder if Newman knows why all our poops smell different when we eat the same food. I'm sure he will because he's the top expert on the subject of poop!!
