Poor lad... we had a heart failure case. Treated at Royal Veterinary College. They gave him 6m to live. He managed 12 with careful management and occasionally winging it with doses of furosemide. I've have loved 6 years but its a lottery. Hopefully he's over the rough patch for now

Yeah they think he's basically had it since birth and just been missed because he hates the vets so much his heart rate goes bonkers whenever he goes. Just now he's come looking for food at lunch time which is the first time he's actively sought food out since probably Tuesday of last week. He's eaten it all as well and has now come in and curled up behind me on the office sofa (one of his many spots)

Wow ! Never seen a cone of shame stay on a cat more than a couple of minutes once they're awake ....

he takes it off often or if he cons his mum into believing he won't lick the spot again but he needs it left on for a few days min....

He's pathetically miaowing at window to be let out (not happening). Poor sod!

Looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, but tbh she's an absolute assh*le.
But that's what I get for walking into Blue Cross and asking for the cat that no one else wanted.
She will randomly attack me for no reason, mainly when I'm asleep, which is nice.
That said, I do love the thing, even though she does her best to make my life an utter misery at all times.
Her name...

Kitler

Hmm has she been seen by a specialist? Watching "My Cat from Hell" (awful name, good programme) one inexplicable case was randomly psycho for no obvious reason turned out he had a medical condition that affected his mental state he got a regular drug treatment and was fine after that poor sod

Welcome Andromeda! Some poor fool returned her after a couple of days as they didn't appreciate having a kitten :eek:, so we offered to take her in if the back up people didn't pick her up and thankfully (for us) she's our other brilliant kitten.

Here's her matching bowl (Napoleon has his own)

Napoleon has gotten pretty big in 6 weeks

And proof that after 3 weeks they've decided they like each other

Nymph is a Singapura, and Kraken is a Maine ****.
£4k for the lot! :eek:

LOL... thats a lot for pussy ;) You have a proper registered pedigree.. My Burmese and Bengal are both unregistered and were half price or less. I want them for pets not for showing or breeding so didnt need registration. Kraken good name :)

The main problem was that Singapuras are very rare in the UK (she was £2.5k) and we wanted to get kittens within a week of age so that they grow up as siblings (which they totally are now).

Our other 3 cats aren't fans, haha.

My wife would leave me if we had 5 cats.. She loves her Bengal but she isnt really a cat person. Singapura is very pretty!

Well as per my previous posts, I'm sad to say we had to have Meg put to sleep on Monday afternoon. Last Friday evening she began struggling to eat, her appetite was good, she came up to us at her usual meal times as normal, but the tumour in her mouth/jaw was preventing her from eating properly, so we called the vet and they arranged to come out on the Monday. In the mean time we added water to her food (a soft pate anyway) so she could eat easier, but you could tell it was frustrating her and she'd paw at her mouth after eating :( She got through the weekend and I rushed home from work on Monday to get 10 minutes with her before the vet arrived. Safe to say I was a mess! Thankfully she passed very quickly and is now at peace, although probably now teasing her brother up there somewhere! (We lost Ozzie her brother just over 12 months ago)

Now it feels so strange without her in the house. It'll be the first time in 34 years without a cats in the house.

So rest in peace my beautiful 2;
