Arrival Story:
Minky came to me at 12 weeks old from a friend who had trapped a litter of kittens living wild (at 6 weeks old). The other 4 kittens soon became tame but Minky continued to hiss, growl and bite when handled. With a lot of time and patience Minky came round a little. She still won't be handled but will come and shout at me when she think's it's supper time and will catch toys I throw and bring them back to me (at least 3 feet away). She adores Albie and is often asleep curled up with him. She is a little cutie and has never grown very big.

I'm Celebrating My 10th Birthday Today!!

I'm 10 Years old today, along with 400 other Catster kitties, including Prince who is Hooch's brofur and my brofur Alfie's Mancat friend. Prince is 8 years old today!!
Happy Birthday Prince!!

We'll be having tuna-in-springwater for our supper in my honour, so I'm looking forward to that and mum has given me a new toy mouse!!

I had my anti-inflammatory injection last week for my ongoing arthritis so I'm full of beans and can jump for joy! Mum thinks the glucosamine supplement I have on my food is helping too!

Thankyou Humphrey and Roger for the lovely red heart and for my beautiful black kittie birthday cake.

Thankyou Alexander, Ra, Utu and The Down Under Gang for my delish pink cupcake.

Wishing all my friends who celebrate Mother's Day today a wonderful day and make sure you give your mums lots of cuddles.

We had our Mother's Day here in England on 14 March, when we all put our pennies together and bough our mum a bunch of flowers!

Love & purrs

It's now 9 days since Minky went to the vets when she was unable to walk. Terry, our vet, said she should be walking fine and putting her weight on her back legs within 24 hours - but that was not the case!

She still could not walk the day after and was confined to the back bedroom with an open litter tray, food and water. On the third day she could put weight on her right back leg but not her left and the poor litle mite still seemed in pain. It took until the 7th day (last Thursday) before she could walk properly, although very carefully.
Terry said it was unusual for the anti-inflammatory injection to take so long to work and thinks she'll need to come in regularly now for more injections.

Minky still hasn't been in the garden to play out, which she always loved to do before and has preferred to stay inside where she feels safer. She's eating well now and seems happier in herself. I could tell she was depressed before and just wanted to hide away. Snowy has been a little star and instead of sleeping during the day in the lounge has been up in the back bedroom keeping her little friend company!

With my concern for Minky, I forgot it was her 9th birthday today until I received the e-mail from Catster with her cake, treats and 5 paws for her page. Thankyou so much Catster HQ lady - it's really sweet of you!

As is the tradition in our family, we'll have a special birthday tea in Minky's honour - the usual tuna in spring water or a choice of chicken breast.

All I want is for Minky to get better - she's too young at 9 to have such bad arthritis and be in so much pain with it.

Thankyou to all her friends who sent pawmails with lovely Get Well messages and gifts for her page. They meant a lot to us and we hope we haven't forgotten to thank anyfur - if so it was really appreciated and not intended.
