High on my to do list. 
2 very elderly cats in Binibeca to be caught. 
I’ve been once but the moment they saw me they scarpered. 
We’ll have to close the feeder for a couple of days. 
Trouble is , cats remember me , for years and years. 
I have Trixie at home , from the same place. 
She’s about 17 now. 

En mi lista de trabajo para pronto. 
Dos gatos geriátricos en Binibeca. 
El problema es que se acuerdan de mi. Nada más verme se van corriendo

Meet Max. 
It would seem that his life was turned upside down during the winter. 
From being a big cat he became a shadow of his former self and his constant companion disappeared. 

Did his carer die ? 
Michael and Sheila Callaghan discovered him and were shocked to see the difference a few months had made. 

He’s staying with me. He’s gained weight but has had a few problems along the way , some dental work required , but his blood tests were not bad at all . 
However he has since had cistitis and he was back at our Vet yesterday for a further long term antibiotic and another bot of dietary aids. 
For now he’s on Metacam as well. 

He’s a lovely cat. Keeps himself a bit to himself but is friendly with cats and people 
Tonight he has ventured into the house for the first time. It’s pouring and there are cats everywhere. 

Max. No sabemos su historia sólo que el año pasado fue gato grande y después del invierno solo y delgado. 
Tiene cistitis y ahora está con el segundo tratamiento. 
Está lloviendo fuerte con relámpagos y por primera vez ha decidido entra del todo en la casa.

He looks so much better now Janice. Thank you for letting him stay and for looking after him so well 😍 xx

Oh dear Max, I hope he soon recovers. I have a soft spot for black and white cats and he reminds me of my dear Henry who I recently lost 🥺

Well it really has been a very busy few days. . So little time to write up everything that we do. 

For some days I had been thinking that the lovely , much loved , Smokey , he of 3 legs, had been losing weight but then A lot of cats have lost weight in the extreme heat that we have had. 

But looking at him , and picking him up , I realised that it might be very serious. He also had terrible breath. 
Heart in mouth I rushed him to Vet before he closed , my worst fear was that he had sudden onset kidney failure. 

Thankfully his kidneys seem to be fine, without doing tests. Our vet is very experienced at feeling kidneys , and telling if there is a change in them. 
But poor Smokey´s mouth was suddenly in need of care and treatment. I left him there . He was sedated rather than anaesthetised, and had many many teeth extracted. 
I picked him up on Friday night and kept him locked away for the night, 

Some oral painkillers the next day and now treats and that wonderful AD food to feed him up. 

He’ll be weighed in a week or so to see if he has gained some weight. If not we’ll do some tests. 

Meanwhile he’s back to giving me his lopsided smile, with one eye slightly squinted, all the results of the attack that left him with just 3 legs. 

A very special cat who never falls out with anyone and who leans, literally, on Bini and Dillon. They frequently walk with him propping him up. 

Go Smokey. 

Han sido unos días de muchísimo trabajo, sin tiempo para contar los sucesos. 

Desde hace un par  de semanas me había dado cuenta de que Smokey , el muy querido Smokey , de tan solo tres patas , había perdido peso. 
Pero muchos gatos han perdido peso. Supongo que viene de las temperaturas tan altas. 

Pero el viernes por la mañana me di cuenta de que estaba realmente delgado y a más y más tenía un olor desagradable en la boca. Síntomas muchas veces de fallo renal. 

Con el corazón en la boca le lleve al vet. 

Palpó los riñones y los pronunciaba en buenas condiciones. 
Pero la boca no 

Tenía unos cuantos dientes podridos. 

El mismo día se los han quitado y ya vino a casa la misma noche. El siguiente un poco de analgésico y comida AD. 
Le vamos a revisar dentro de unos días y si no ha ganado peso le haremos unas pruebas. 

Mientras tanto esta con sus más íntimos amigos , Bini y Dillon , que literalmente le apoyan ! 
Caminan juntos. 
Y el me mira con su sonrisa un poco torcida y un ojo también como tirado todo gracias al ataque que le hicieron de peque y fue cuando tuvimos que amputarle la pata.

What a terrible sad morning. 
Alicia, a lady who looks out for cats in San Clemente, came across a terrible sight late on Saturday night when out walking her dog. 
A cat she had never seen before , with an eye and ear missing. In a terrible state. 
She asked for a cage and I went with her to look for the cat on Sunday night but we couldn’t find her. 
So many places to hide, maybe she had died. 
Alicia had looked several times over the day. 
Nothing 
I asked Paul and Sharon Cant if they had seen , knowing that if they had they would have tried to catch it. 
They willingly went off to search. And found her on a wall. 
Just looking at her was very upsetting 
 I went to join them and between the 3 of us we caught her. 
Not easy. Very frightened. Finally she hid behind an open cage against the stone wall and we very quickly used the door and some blankets to stop her getting away , whilst we got a spare cage and passed her into that. 
Not as easy as it sounds. 
So off to our Vet. 
We were dreading the worst and so it was. 
He sedated her to have a good look to see if we could save her but the wound, from cancer , was too far gone and deep, also full of tiny maggots , but we could have sorted that. 

Just a baby really. A Siamese cross. 

It really does make you cry when you can’t save them but grateful thanks to Alicia and Sharon and Paul who always go the extra mile. 
I always get the thanks for a rescue like this but it really is so often a joint effort. 

Rest  in Peace little one. 

I have put the photo just off her “good” side. 

Día muy triste. Intentamos y logramos coger a una gata joven con cáncer de ojo y oreja. 
Por lástima no pudimos salvarla. 
He puesto la foto del lado “bueno” de su cara.

Poor little soul. May she rest in peace now. Run free little girl on Rainbow Bridge. No more pain. Thank you for caring for her. ❤️ xx

Thank goodness she was found and now out of pain and suffering. You do an amazing thing Janice and the brilliant people who support you.

Just a tiny bit cooler and The Furry Ones seem to think it’s winter. 

Without moving tonight I could see 19 cats in the sitting room including Lizzie sitting on the arm of the sofa behind me and Heidi on another chair. They don’t normally come in there. 

Parece que los gatos piensan que ya es invierno. Solo con bajar un pelin la temperatura están eligiendo ya sus puestos de invierno incluyendo 2 que nunca entran en la sala de estar porque son muy nerviosas. Heidi , la Rubicam, y al Abuela de Addaya , Lizzie. 
Ya he contado 19!Image attachment

Ours did the same! 🐾🐱

Bini, one of the stars of our open days at The Cat Cafe. 
As you can see he has been in the wars. 

It’s what we do , it what we have been doing for 23 years. 
Caring for the street and feral cats of Menorca.  Neutering them , caring for sick and elderly cats , feeding over 250 cats every day. 

On Fridays and Sundays you can meet some of them. They love visitors. 
Extra cuddles. 
Everyone welcome. The cats love children. 
We have a little shop where you can stock up on mugs, kitchen textiles , cards, calendars etc 
it’s  certainly beginning to look a lot like Christmas with many many cards , many at very reduced prices. 

Noria Riera 16. es Castell. 

Fridays 11 to 13.00 and Sundays 11 to  13.30
