An update on the two cats I seem to have come by.

The top one is little Cuss Cuss and she is a quiet sweet little cat, and nary a hunting bone in her body. Both cats were dumped by their people. Cuss was dumped six years ago, into he bush with a full litter of kittens to feed. I hope her people rot in hell for that. luckily she and the kittens were rescued and all found homes. Cuss spent five years living in a unit with an elderly lady who had to give her up after she developed dementia and had to go into a nursing home. hence Cuss is quite comfortable sitting in the sun watching birds and thats all... not so Tiger below

Tiger by name and nature. Tiger was also dumped and Melissa rescued her. I took her to the vet and she had to be fully vaccinated, de sexed etc etc $$$$. But before de sexing they found out she had lung worms...so there was two weeks of medication which she HATED because the vet said it tasted like cattle drench...in that two weeks of course she came on heat inside the house. The stench in the back verandah room was unbelievable even tho I mopped daily
and sprayed with cat odour stuff...now she is lung worm free and de sexed she spends her active hours hunting poor little Cuss about the place and trying to dominate...so I have bought myself a super shooter water pistol and every time I see her beginning to stalk Cuss who is exhausted from all the chasing...Tiger gets a water shot. She is young enough to change. I have had to put 3 bells around her neck to give the wildlife a chance as she is a predator big time, and when not killing things she kills curtains, rugs etc...but then in the evening she gets into her little basket and is so lovable...

So now its cats...and one day I would love to find a Kelpie similar to Thorn, but not yet...these two keep me too poor to even consider it. But it is nice to have life in the house Don would be horrified to see two cats here...one was bad enough. Not everyone loves cats...and he was one of those.

Its bloody freezing here. my nose is so cold today but there is nothing nicer in these cold months than sleeping in till all of 7.15am. I am usually up by 5.30 so this is a sleep in for me. Winter is definitely my season...as cold as it is, I always feel sharper mentally and more creative.

Clearly a quiet day here and nothing much to post...

I used to hate cats. Then one day I stopped being so allergic to them and now I tolerate and even sometimes like the things. Weird how that happens.

Creative? What are you going to make? Perhaps paint?

It's a rare man who loved kitties. Mine professes not to, but who brings Kicker in when I've kicked him out for scavenging (after a huge meal...er the cat that is, not Phill), and who does the cat go to for, and get, cuddles?

Your cats are gorgeous, I can see Tiger's spirit in her eyes. And water pistols are the best cat trainers aren't they?

Lucky cats to land in a house of love.

oh poops on the solicitor news---yes, they get their knickers in a wad easy these days--hang in there....NOw, What news? I am waiting ever so patiently...so do tell!

Kitties are precious--we had kitties for years--now we keep the neighborhood stalkers form the bird feeders. I get so irked about the people who dump off their animals---can only imagine how they treat their kids!

Yours found a truly wonderful home!
