When is a stray cat not a stray cat?

Cats are naturally wanderers as far as 10 miles, especially if unneutered.  Cats, when they visit other houses, are always ‘starving’ and are never fussy eaters (I once knew a cat that would only eat turkey at home but went and raided the neighbours cat food bowl every day). So what can you do if…

The wonder of mother nature

Yesterday we took in three kittens about 3 or 4 weeks old that were found by the road side.  Apparently healthy, and certainly with healthy appetites. Lucille had just finished feeding her 5 so we though we’d see if she would help us out.  She wasn’t a natural mother when her kittens were born, she…
