What would they do without you Janice 😺xx

If I had a parrot I would teach him to say ”Who’s a naughty boy ? ”
It would apply mainly to Bini and Dillon/ Pesky.
This morning I really didn’t want Bini to go out so closed him in the second bedroom.
Completely forgetting that I had left a bag of cat shopping in the en suite bathroom for safety (! )
Bini has to go to Vet later . He has had a couple of nose bleeds lately. The fear is that he has cancer of the nose and we watch it constantly.
It didn’t stop him from opening the shopping and breakfasting like a king.
2 and a half sachets eaten and half a packet of Dreamies.
Bini no para nunca.
Esta mañana le he encerrado en una habitación porque más tarde tendré que llevarle al veterinario.
Olvidando que había dejado una bolsa con comida de gatos en el baño.
Ha desayunado como un rey.
Dos sobres y medio y medio paquete de chuches. ... See MoreSee Less
He looks about to enter a food coma 😂
You bad lad! That was for others as well, not just for you, you piggy porker!
What a terror! Hope he was ok at the vet's.
Well you can’t say life with the cats is ever boring!
Oh dear naughty Bini xx
Ra, ra, comes the morning wake up call.
Timmy is awake , so everyone must wake.
I can never decide if he’s The Lion King, because he sounds like a lion in a cartoon or he’s going to sing Ra Ra Rasputin.
However he is here to see out his days with me, Tottering by Gently.
For Timmy has reached the great age of 19 years and 7 months.
Originally as a kitten he lived with me but then he went to a wonderful home, but sadly his human Mum died last week and so he came to me.
He is stone deaf
He has a cataract on one eye
His liver could be better
He has a heart murmur
He only has 2 teeth left , incisors , and a root which does not seem to cause him pain or discomfort so we have decided not to do anything about it.
His kidneys are not perfect but not that bad.
His liver is “ tocado “ not quite right.
He does quite possibly have dementia.
He weighs 2.6 kilos , when he should be at the very least 4.
Amazingly he does not have anaemia.
I suspected that like many elderly cats his nails would be very long and causing him distress but two were completely embedded in his pads
He is not fazed by other cats. He did after all live with 5 more for a long time but had been an only child for the last 3 years.
So he is living in my bathroom for now at least and comes to sit with me in the bedroom and gaze out through the French windows.
I blocked off the way into the vanity unit as cats can get into the drawers through the back but he has plenty of cages to hide in. And a big one to eat in.
At first he wasn’t eating much at all and the vet said to me that cats with dementia, like people, can often forget to eat.
So I put him in a cage for his meals and he eats the lot. His favourite apparently , since I asked, is Goumet rabbit , which he snaffles quite quickly. I’m hoping to get him eating a healthier diet to feed him up. He’s looking a little better. The first couple of days he dropped 50 grams which was alarming, and that’s when I decided to pop him in a cage to eat but this morning he ate a whole tin without any prompting.
Many of the cats in our care are now 17 or more years old. Usually from our colonies on the streets of Menorca and they come to live out their days in peace, comfort and above all with good food and safety. And love.
Timmy loves being picked up and cuddled.
Can you help to continue our work?

Good morning from Timmy
Thank you for taking care of him x
He's a gorgeous old boy, i loved meeting him and pleased he' s got you to spend his later years with x🐾🐾💙
What a dear old chap. How lucky to have had you at both ends of his life and a lovely long term owner in between ❤️
Oh he's lovely Janice 😍 so sad when they lose their owner. I had one that was 23 and ginger
He’s a sweetheart. My daughter had a cat called Mungo. She had a breakin and the burglar had hit poor Mungo over the head! He had brain damage and behaved strangely after that. Cats, as with humans need extra attention with dementia or brain injuries.
Good morning Timmy you’re so handsome xx
Dear old chap, glad he's surrounded by love and care (and Gourmet Rabbit).
Lovely boy. I'm so pleased he's snuggling with you 😊
Amazing! You and Timmy xx
Isn't he lovely Jan xxx
I made a box with goodies for him, will bring it as soon as I can
Dear Timmy 🥰
Isn’t there a song that goes something like “ Why don’t I ever learn? “
Why don’t I indeed. You’d think that living with Pesky and the Forty Furry Thieves that I would be more careful.
Opened a tin of very expensive AD food for some of the many old or frail and poorly cats.
Put the tin in a kitchen drawer to save it for later.
I was in a rush.
2nd emergency dash to vet just after closing in the same day.
But no excuse. It really helps to close the drawer. ... See MoreSee Less
Poor you Janice always an uphill battle xxx
I had a present on Saturday and morning of a real snake by my garden gate.
Boy did I jumpwhen I saw it whilst hanging out the washing.
Dead. Dare I say fortunately. Had one brought in alive one day. Upstairs in my office.
I have a total phobia about snakes , can’t even look at them on TV.
The obvious culprits , Dillon and Bini , were inside all night.
Vaya sorpresa desagradable el sábado por la mañana.

I thought cats were scared of snakes! Did no one tell your tribe?
Poor you. I don’t mind snakes but have a phobia of spiders and cockroaches. I’ve learned to deal with spiders - you have to with children around for fear of transferring your phobia to them. Since having a home in Menorca I have had to deal with cockroaches when I have been here alone. Normally I scream for David to deal with them!
Me too ! At least not venomous on Menorca ?
I think the cats needs questioning one by one to get to the truth 😄
I arrived home to a lot of feathers and a very dead bird - or at least discarded parts that of it!
I don’t mind snakes but hate spiders. Geoff was the other way round!
They are totally harmless in Menorca.

Cat killing competition for children cancelled in New Zealand after backlashFeral cats are regarded as pests in New Zealand - but critics of the contest fear children wouldn't be able to distinguish them from household pets.
Shocking isn’t it. You would expect it was in some Third World country not a so called civilised country like New Zealand.
Sadly the part of the competition where kids kill deer and wild pigs still going ahead 😞
I can't bear to read the article. The headline is sick-making.
I've been there but NO WAY I'd go back.
That is a disgusting practice! Barbaric.
What do these morons think their children are going to think? It’s ok to murder innocent animals? Next it’ll be ok to kill a person you don’t like!
What !! 🤬🤬
The Look Out. More than half a kilometre away yet. Waiting for her supper.
