Well, it had to be done, didn't it? And since this is both the first and last post, I have won. Thank you all.
You have no niece. That was the neighbour's cat.
Oh eyerybody loves fairys. But thats the truth: Prize and me will visit my Mom for lunch now :)
Make him brush his teeth straight away. She feeds him too many sweets.
By the way - a belated Happy Birthday wish to you for Monday! I hope you had a lovely day. Many happy returns of the day.
Thank you very much, it was a nice day.
And the prize is still here on a visit. :D
I don't want you to get the idea that he is your birthday gift. No, no - I sent cake. I struggled to get it in the envelope, so it got a bit mushed up, but it should be delicious.
Postman was already here. The prize said it was banana cake but Ithought it was peach. But it was delicious we enjoyed it
That was my neighbour's cat you ate! The Prize is horrified - he's come straight back to me.
So where did my cake go? I paid lots of postage on that! I can't believe Gesine fed cat to my little prize. Surely not. Perhaps the prize is lying. Either way, he's mine. He's been microchipped. I hope he hasn't swallowed the cat's microchip. That will really confuse matters!
@4881:You send me your neighbour's cat for birthday. How nice! But I didn't get a package. Is it a male or a female cat? We have three male cats and they won't accept a wife. We tried it.
@4882: The prize is mircochipped - that explains why our computers here get crazy all time it visited me in office.
Okay prize, off to kitchen, we make hot chocolate.
You're going to ruin him and make him fat. A glass of cold water and a slice of bread is all he needs.
So what did you do with the rejected wife??
Fortunatly the owner had only short vacancies....
A few years ago we made 'catsitting' for people who were in holidays. But now we have three own cat it doesn't worked well since than cause ours can go out and do what they want. And if you have some couch potatoes it causes to much trouble.
Cats are very territorial. My sister looks after dogs and other animals (not cats, unless they're in their own home, and she doesn't like them much) as you did. There's a great call for pet sitters. I even have to get someone to check on my little birds when I'm away.
Yes but it's a lot of work. At the moment we would take only little cats to cocker them up from our vet. And one of our cats loves to play Daddy and look after the other (little) ones.
Oh, you have a cat with different coloured eyes? I had one once, too. And other white ones that had blue eyes and were deaf, but they managed very well. Some animals are just more nurturing, aren't they? My aunty had a female desexed dog that would still come into season, and when she did, the rush of hormones made her begin to mother their old tomcat, and she'd suckle him for months! LOL She'd make milk, too. It was really bizarre, and the cat was almost bigger than the dog. It was so cute.
She really made milk? That's a cute thing.
The one with different coloured eyes is called Dickie. The other white one is Spooky, he has yellow eyes. They are half brothers. In fact he is a normal male cat: Away for days, hunting, bothering neighbours (they all love him) but when he is at home, he wants to care for the other ones. And they don't like that all the times, cause he gets violent if the other don't want to be cleaned...
It sounds like he hasn't been desexed?
And your birds? Which kind of birds are they?
Prize didn't tell anything
Well, desexing would stop his aggression. My birds are cockatiels. Both were strays that escaped from homes. One flew into a homeless men's shelter, and the other landed on the shoulder of one of my welfare worker's son-in-law after being chased by crows. I love them, but i can't give them the life they deserve. This is Mousie:
and this is Little Chicken:
The prize doesn't like them because they bit him.
The Prize is terrified that you would even think of desexing him for his aggression! After all, it's not his fault if he can't sit down comfortably since you inserted that microchip in him. (Did you have to choose *there* - surely you could have found another place to insert it?) Poor thing. He's come back to me.
Look, it was convenient. I'm a pragmatist.
Well, that may be, but for him it was just a pain in the... no, I can't say it.
And what will you do next?
I have a secret plan...
