Not Much Fun.

Still smarting from the 105 Euro Bill, I swore to have no truck with anymore stray cats. Only to arrive home to yet another strange stray sitting on my draining board and not looking very well.  So I opened a tin of Tuna, as you do when trying to discourage strays.  He ate a very small amount and then disappeared, still not looking very well.  So I worried about that.

Woke this morning to find the Siamese dead on the lawn.  I am gutted.  I nearly cried.  He was such a beautiful thing and was becoming just a teensy bit less afraid.  We might even have got there in the end.

It is looking as though someone has taken the cat problem around here seriously and put down poison.  No, I don’t blame them.  It was already out of hand.  But just not my lovely Siamese, Silly Billy, I was feeding him and he was beginning to look good.

Now I am freaking out about the neutered Tabby, and watching her like a hawk.  Fortunately she couldn’t get out of the garden for a couple of days because she couldn’t jump over the gate after the operation, so hopefully didn’t ingest any of whatever it was.  She will be at The Vet before she knows what hit her if she shows the slightest sign of being ill.  I don’t care how much it costs.

Thank You, God, in advance.

    Oh no. How distressing. Loved the humour about the Tuna. And I believe cats can live happily on a sunny windowsill without ever going outside. In the village where I last lived there were two such cats watching the traffic race by their front window that had never ever been allowed out because of it. You have the problem of a dog flap though. Keep us updated please.

    My neighbour who has had several stray cats seen to has a house cat that is Siamese. And he is out of that door like a streak of lightning at every opportunity. He brawls around for a couple of hours and then goes home.
    I honestly don’t know what is the right thing to do. But I don’t like the thought of locking up cats.
    As it is, Tabs rarely goes out. She is fast asleep on my bed at the moment.
    I would like to think that I saved just one.
