What do you give for Christmas to the cat person who has everything ?
Apart from another cat, obviously.
A little ginger kitten to climb into their plant pots.
12 euros. I bought all the stock.
Only 4 left.
Hopefully they will get some more.
I’m hoping that there might be other colours , usually this company does black and white, tabby and white and the ginger and white.

A log fire?
Well I never.
I’m not going to complain says Ángela but I do want to know when Mum is going to get the warm beds out to put next to it.
Estufa de leña?
No me lo puedo creer.
Pero quiero saber donde están los cojines? ... See MoreSee Less
I said the log fire needs lighting last night. Very strange for October! Nice to see cats snuggling up in the warmth! Xx
Going to be putting out the winter cat beds on the terrace next weekend 🐾🐾
Muchas gracias... Por traducir....
They love it. Took this photo just now.
Finally I’ve found a food that Paddy really seems to enjoy. He’s just eaten most of a tin.
Royal Canin Intestinal for kittens.
He really needs to put some weight on
Por fin he encontrado comida que le gusta a Paddy. Acaba de comer casi una lata entera.

Intestinal??? I thought that's for cats with diarreahoe....
After a tummy upset a few months ago my vet recommended gastrointestinal canned for my dog. I mix it with his grain free dry food, and he is since doing great. I buy it bulk (12 x 450gr tins) on line, and it is works out cheaper. Arrived within 3 days.
He has such sad eyes. Hope he improves now you have found a food he will eat x
Bon Appetit Paddy. 💖
He's beautiful x

Breakfast for Paddy.
You’ve not met Paddy yet.
He is totally adorable, grateful and my new sofa chum.
As you might remember Dougal , my much loved elderly street cat from Calan Porter died just two weeks ago from kidney failure.
We didn’t know how old Dougal was but we do know much more about Paddy.
He was a kitten at a house in Binibeca 15 years ago when I went there to catch and neuter.
For although it doesn’t seem to me to be so long it is indeed 21 years this month since I founded Cats in Need Menorca. If you had told me then that I would still be donning the shoes at 9.30 at night and setting off to feed colonies of street cats around Mahon, Es Castell and San Luis , well I don’t know how I would have reacted.
Don’t know. But anyway along the way I have met many memorable cats , many heartbreakers, and Paddy is another of those.
He, like so many other cats, has anaemia and kidney failure and when he came to live with me last month wasn’t eating.
He ate well for a time, and started to gain weight. He took over the guardianship of my sofa, cuddled up to me every time I sit.
Then on Wednesday he stopped eating and became thinner at an alarming rate.
On Thursday a visit to our vet, a new prescription for a kidney medicine to help reduce the rate at which he loses protein and muscles. Fortunately or not, we already had a bottle in the house for it costs nearly 30 euros per bottle.
He had a long term antibiotic to cover possible complications for we feared he was starting a chest infection.
He had indeed lost 10 percent of his weight.
He just lay in a corner of the sofa.
You can imagine my thoughts.
But now he has rallied, is eating, purring and cuddling.
I have 3 very old frail cats living with me, they require constant attention and care and preferably if they will eat it special convalescence food.
Yes sorry but once again I am asking for donations to help us with our expenses.
We have just paid the vet for last month. Every single day we feed a minimum of 200 street cats.
I am not alone in taking the poorly cats home, all of our volunteers do it.
Sally has six cats living with her, all but one rescued from a life or death on the streets.
Recently she took in Romney who lost his sight.
We never put a cat to sleep if it can have a good quality of life and they are so grateful, rarely cause problems with the other cats.
So please if you could make a donation, or Perhaps support our work on a regular basis we would be so grateful.
All of us are aware that so many Charities are suffering and that our donors re kind people who support not just Cats in Need Menorca but many other charities as well so we don’t like asking but it is a truth that without your support our work would have to stop
Thank you so much to the kind people who donated last week. We have had almost no visitors this year so are going into winter with very much depleted finances.
Please could you share to your animal loving friends. Facebook has not allowed me to boost posts, paying to do so, for several years. But you could share and maybe help us find new followers and likes.

Paddy un gato de Binibeca que yo conocí por primera vez cuando era un peque de escasa semanas hace 15 años.
Este mes de octubre cumplo 21 años cuidando de los gatunos callejeros de la Isla.
De momento tengo a 21 gatos viejos y débiles en casa. Pero disfrutan mucho de la vida todavía. Y merecen estar a sano y salvo en sus últimos meses. ... See MoreSee Less
I have a monthly standing order. So many worthwhile charity’s, but you can just pick the ones closest to your heart. I can’t bear to think of cats anywhere suffering.
Breakfast for teenies.
They went to vet for second vaccination yesterday and a very necessary pedicure.
Think the play was a bit rough the day before.
One poorly eye but recovering with cream and no damage done.
Good news there is less difference in the weights.
1.6 and 1.4 k.
After the smaller one was so poorly she was literally half the weight of her sister.
