Mart,

I'm not sure that being in a cage with four queens is actually that much better  Grin

May have  cage photo and vids to follow, but for now, here's a ginger Siamese, never heard of that before. Don't know if it's a breed, or a 'mishap'. Lovely cat, came in yesterday, so I only saw it today, and all it wanted was fuss. Very noisy, and neighbour promises to forward a video.



and Buster's new best friend who we keep bumping into this week. He's 45kg of 'Bully' which is apparently a name for an American Bulldog / American Staffie cross, as oppossed to what I think of as a bullie, which is the gorgeous long nosed English Bull Terrier. This guy is an absolute sweetie, but one look sends some park visitors running for home. He came from America, so ears were already done, owner doesn't agree with it.

Anyways, here's the 'Devil Dog' Sunnie.

So you have the combination of the attitude of a Siamese cat coupled with the attitude of a ginger cat, wow I bet that makes for some fun Smiley

I can imagine a 45kg 'Bully' really does make some people leg it.....

Keep up the good work Mart.

Video of me fussing the ginger Siamese won't copy, but I'm sure my Alpha Geek (Wifey) will be able to fix it later.

I was down there this morning putting up shelves, and he never shut up. Fussing him only made it worse. he needs a home, ideally with someone with less than perfect hearing.

Silly pic of me playing with the five ferals yesterday. They are getting much better, mum is hiding by my shins, but the braver two snuggled up against me, or more likely, were getting as far away from my hands as possible.

Ricc,

Looks Abyssinian like to me, my favourite breed although I prefer the Blue........... but would have expected more tabby like markings to the body?

Regards

Ohhhhhh, yes, I can see that. I've Googled 'em' and whilst images vary, some do look like her.

Good news, she got adopted yesterday, and I was there, just a co-incidence as I was loading up my tools and ladders etc etc.. The lady taking her has others and thought she was great. She was surprised that we could just scoop her up and cuddle her ....... but that's how we greet all visitors ...... boom boom.

Cat vid still fighting back, and alpha geek now at A&E having sprained her elbow (yep, turns out that's a thing) having tripped over all the wood and tools I dumped in the garage when the weather said no no to any more porch roof building end of last week. She says it wasn't my fault, so we all know who's fault it really was ......... mine!  surrender

Good news, elbow isn't sprained. Bad news, the radial head is fractured ...... and we all know who's fault it is, don't we!

Great news with Casper, he lets his guard down about once a week, and last night not only did he come out of his hidey hole for food, with me in the room, but he butted my hand, and when I lent forward, he butted my head several times and stood in front of me whilst he ate.

This morning he doesn't want to come out, which seems to be his routine, he lets his guard down, then gets over protective for a few days, as it seems to scare him. Very, very slow progress, but strongly suspect he's a lap cat, he just doesn't know it yet.

Great news about the head butting Mart, Casper's definitely thinking about possibly considering perhaps allowing you to be part of his family  Smiley

Not so good news about the fracture but at least you know your place in life  hysteria

 facepalm Oh Mart sounds like a spell in the dog house! .
Good news with Casper, our Trexie has been stuck in tickle my head, where is my fish, you are now dismissed, stage for about 14 years. She will sit on the arm of my chair in case she needs something urgently but on the lap about twice a year. Walking my supine body in bed is considered acceptable. Good luck looking forward to the next chapter.

Surprise progress. He came out three times for us yesterday, so a massive improvement on his previous policy of shutting down for a few days after 'risking' contact.

Also he is meowing more, and when we go in, he meows at us before running into his nest, whereas before we'd just get a hiss.

There's an awful lot going on in that little brain of his, he's definitely torn between fuss and hiding. This morning when I went in, he was curled up outside the nest (he then ran in), but that's a positive feeling safe to sleep outside.

Anyways, quick breakfast, then off to muck out the cats, then back to help my mate Bob move the battening from garage floor to porch roof ..... a bit late for Wifey, but if she will play in areas where there's 'man-work' to be done! [God I hope she doesn't read this.  fight ]

Funny problem for Wifey, because she's hurt her left arm, she can't take Buster for a walk, as he's left side trained like all Guide dogs. And Buster being Buster, he just gets upset when we do odd things to him. Apparently that's a Retriever trait too, as they like routine. One of the trainers told us how if there is two routes say to the shops for a GDO (guide dog owner), a Lab will try to vary how they get there for a change, whilst a Retriever will prefer to stick to one route. Buster's 3/4 Ret + 1/4 Lab, so presumably he only takes a different route every 4th trip .......!
