We seem to like cats on this forum

So here is the "We like Cats Thread"

I will start

I thought it better to move Hawker1's subsequent "doggy" post to this thread. After all we don't want a breakout of fighting like in Tom and Jerry - when the dog turns up of course!

Our boys, Byron (on the left) and Milton. They came from Thames Valley Animal Welfare, having been rescued from a farm where they were running wild. Sadly, we lost Milton a couple of years ago when he was hit by a car.

And Cleo, who was the runt of her litter and was about to be 'disposed of' by her owner (think sacks and rivers) before we took her. She was in the house on her own for about four days before the boys arrived, and has never forgiven us for bringing them home.

I can't put photos on the forum but we have 5 cats, they are lovely creatures.
One is black, her mother was a "wild"cat, and she still is a bit shy sometimes. But she loves to sleep on the bed with us.
Then there is a black and white male who is really, really cool, he likes to sleep on wet grass in the rain, and plays with the taps.
Next are a white partly persian, and a tabby fluffy, who both came from Liège in Belgium, the white one is a little princess (is what she thinks, anyhow) and the fluffy is very cuddly with us, and only friendly with the shy black. Finally there is a grey tabby that we inherited from my sister, and she's brutal like anything, goes to sleep with the dog (Oh my, did I mention the D-word? Have to change thread), and steals his food.
-To be continued on the "we like dogs"thread-
Greetings, Eduard.

Ah! At least a photo of one of our cats! Sooty looks exactly like our black Pieke, including the white under her chin, and the dirty look!
This obviously is a generic cat!
Greetings,
Eduard.

She's a beauty. How does she cope being blind and deaf - our two are much younger and have full sight and hearing, yet they still run into things all the time!

Hi Ratch.
Pieke is an old name in the Netherlands. I know one person here in Maastricht with that name, he is 80+ by now.
It probably is an abbreviation, perhaps from Pierre or some similar name.
In Maastricht dialect there are many french-related words, so Pieke short for Pierre might be possible.
I used to have a cat called Poeke, and that's from Poes, meaning Cat. So the ending in -ke is quite common in dutch.
Greetings,
Eduard

Ayup All...

Just to say that poor old Jasper (of the ex-broken but mended leg) has had to go to the vets today for an overnight stop or for a coupla days. His waterworks have blocked up and he is in pain.
We've taken him in and hopefully all will be well soon. :cry:

I'm just sharing this with you 'cos i'm a bit sad...

Image

I hate to say it, but this is the 'best' pic i have of him...
and he looks uncharacteristically thin and pinched.. he's saying, 'go away' I think...

Years ago, I had a British Blue, but he sadly got Cancer and had to be put to sleep. When I find a photo of him again, I will add it on here.

Some find it hard to believe animals can also get Cancer, but I found it hard to believe at first.

Ayup Bramleyman...

Terrible isn't it?

Sorry to hear, BTW... :cry:

I'm pleased for Jasper, as he's ''brightened up' but he still can't wee without a little help. He's in the vets overnight still, but the vet feels he may just be a litle sore after yesterday. Apparently he was rather full! poor little soul. :shock:

Cancer is a terrible shock, our works secretarys dog died on thursday after a protracted fight against LUNG Cancer, of all things. such a shame... :cry:

There is a Spiritual Forum on http://mikkel2.proboards52.com where they have Absent Healing sent out to animals, as well as humans. I have just added Jaspers name and condition on there for you.

Ayup All... Bramleyman...

Just a heads up to report that the little boy, Jasper is now back at home as right as ninepence... I fetched him from the vets at dinnertime and he and i had a great time in the office.. but he doesn't really like lorries! they can be a bit loud!

I got him a munch as he doesn't like the biscuits the vet gave him... for urinary tract health, and i don't blame him, they stink! he's got some meds for this and next week, and we'll have fun getting THEM down him. :wink:

Thanks for your thoughts Bramleyman especially, i think he really benifited from them, (and me a little too. THANKS...) :D

He MUST be O.K. btw, because when he got home, he spent the first hour spraying everything in the garden he could! just like a little pressure washer! Phew! :twisted:
