That's so lovely to see  :) Such a beautiful pair and lovely to see them up to no good  :naughty: I know you shouldn't have favourites but Fontaine & Dainty are my favourite Paws Inn cats, I wish that there was a Knight or Knight-ess in shining armour who was waiting to whisk them into a home of their very own one day :crossed:


Edit: Just read the latest CatChat newsletter and who should be in there but our very own Dainty & Fontaine, think they must have taken the details from the Top Cat section where the girls have been featured in the past.

Fabulous pics Carol  :wow: :wow: :wow: 

Dainty looks so like our Millie and just as playful it seems.  Isn't it brilliant when they finally start to come out of their shell  :) :) :)

Spring fever returned to the Inn at the weekend, and it started with scaredy cat Dainty of all the unlikely suspects.  ;D  As a rule she either hides herself away in the corner on the bottom shelf of the big scratch post or sits in the top bed eyeing me warily for at least 10 minutes before deciding whether its safe to come out, but I’d hardly got through the door and dropped my bag on the floor when this happened…



Dainty is the headless one in case you’re wondering.  :evillaugh:  She rummaged around for a while and came up with this ….



Its one of Tan’s special herbal cat sweets  :evillaugh: that I’d forgotten was in there.  Fontaine tried to take it from her but Dainty stood her ground, flinging it around and playing with it. 



Not to be outdone, normally aloof and diverish Fontaine went back to the bag, had another rummage, and came up something else I hadn’t realised was in there.



We then had the best part of an hour of interactive play.  ;D  Dainty is a naturally inquisitive and playful cat but she usually prefers that her toys come without a human attached to the other end.  :evillaugh:  At one point she almost sat on my knee but backed off after getting her front paws and half her body on when she suddenly realised what she was doing.



It was clearly thirsty work for her....



… and for Fontaine



It made my day, even if I did miss out on my cup of tea.  :)

.....have you heard how Sonny & Jimbo are getting on in their new home?

Yes, Debbie gets regular updates and they have settled in well.  :Luv2:  Not content with their own beds they now regularly keep their slaves company in theirs.  :evillaugh:  Something we didn’t know is that Sonny is a kleptomaniac.  :shocked:  A watch went missing and was found squirreled away in his bed – along with sundry other less valuable items.  :evillaugh:


We’re doing very well for feedback at the moment which is very rewarding.  :)  The Puddings babies Ginger and Treacle (or G&T as their new slaves refer to them  :evillaugh: ) are taking longer to settle, as we suspected they might, but are clearly growing in confidence as shown by the diary (with photos) that we have received.  They've certainly gone to the right home.  ;D

We get frequent bulletins on Olivia (with photos) who looks very happy, and we’ve had a lovely video of Athena and Peaseblossom playing in the snow.  Piri and Tease have made themselves at home too.

 :wooooo: fab news about Ben  :wow:  Fingers crossed that none of the new girls are pregnant  :scared:

Lovely to see the residents snuggly up in their beds, and I thought my two had a lot to choose from!

Now I'm going to shock you here Carol but.... Tiggy :blow kiss: Now don't get me wrong Molly is beautiful too but I just can't shake off my ginger obession! Speaking of which have you heard how Sonny & Jimbo are getting on in their new home?

A quick update from the Inn.  Cadet (1st class) Cledford has been declared fit by the vet so is now available for rehoming.  :)  Sparkle is still showing no signs of being pregnant and we’re hoping that when she goes for her second vaccs next week the vet will confirm that.  I despair of ever getting a decent picture of either of them; they’re both so friendly and inquisitive that all I get is noses.  :Luv2:

 
We took in two new additions on Sunday, sisters Molly and Tiggy.  They’re about 10 months old, definitely haven’t been spayed and have been outdoors, so fingers crossed neither is pregnant.  We had a bit of a shock when we saw them because we had assumed (as we always do) that they would be Paws-Inn-coloured.  They’re not.  :evillaugh:

 
They don’t seem very happy with each other’s company and if they don’t settle down soon we may have to split them, so it’s just as well that Ben has found himself a lovely new home.  ;D  His mum Millie is still taking swipes at us but there are no claws involved now which is a good.  :shify:  It’s quite funny really; she’ll be purring and enjoying a fuss when without warning she’ll hit out, walk away and then fix you with a glare, before getting back in her heated bed.  :rofl:


Elsewhere all is sweetness and light.  Annie and Tula are enjoying cuddling up together indoors and Millie-feral and Wilma are cuddling up together in the greenhouse.  Some of you may recognise their choice of bed.  ;)


I know you want pics of Molly and Tiggy so here are a couple taken when they first arrived.  As both had been sick on the journey and then been treated to a Stronghold I think its safe to say you are not seeing them at their best.

Cadet (1st Class) Cledford - you are a little heartbreaker, aren't you?  :Luv2:

And how lovely to see the gingers at play with the wonderful prezzies they were sent - a big Thank You to their benefactress from me too  :wow: 

Hoping Debbie isn't feeling too miffed - more about her reflexes I suspect than from Dainty's strike.  ;) :hug: :hug:

Hope Debbie's bite isn't too sore, I can't believe 'churchmouse' Dainty would do such a thing!  :hug:


 :Nooooo: :Nooooo: :Nooooo:  Dainty would never do a thing like that.  :Luv2:  She just scratched Debbie and then legged it when Debbie tried to put her in the carrier.

:doh: In my excitement to see the next batch of pics I read too fast and read  'got a bit scratched' as got bit - sorry Dainty :shy:

Too many lovely pics  :wow: Firstly, a big thanks to the mystery parcel sender from me too for the catnip induced Ginger Ninja and Noodles pics  :naughty:  :thanks:

Hope Debbie's bite isn't too sore, I can't believe 'churchmouse' Dainty would do such a thing!  :hug:

Millie looks to be enjoying the catnip too, as for poor Ben's bewildered little face with his naked scratchpost  :rofl:

The newbies are adorable, not sure what is cuter - Sparkle's stripy nose or Cledford's spotty tail :blow kiss:

so I think I’ll call him Cled …or Cleddie …..or Cledders ….. or maybe Cadet (1st class) Cledford because he’s a brave little soldier.  :Luv2:

Now that is a name Teresa would be proud of  :)  :hug:

Oops, I nearly forgot, you want to know about the newbies don’t you.  :evillaugh:


Both are so friendly and so desperate for affection that they’re all over you with head-butts and purrs the minute they get chance, which makes taking pics a bit difficult.


The one who was abandoned by her owners came to us as Sparky but she’s actually a Sparkle.  ;D  The lady who first alerted us to her has done a good job of feeding her up, so rather than being skin and bone as she was when first reported, she’s quite chubby.  :shify:  She’s about 2 years old and vet says definitely not pregnant :phew: so we think she must be spayed, but to be on the safe side she won’t go up for adoption until after she’s had her second vaccinations in 3 weeks time.  She dribbles when she’s pleased or excited. :Luv2:


Poorly puss is 10 months old according to the vets who treated him (not our vets) although how anybody can be so accurate I don’t know.  :innocent:  He is getting better by the day, but his eyes are still a bit gungey which makes him look older and grumpier in the pics.  His name is Cledford but if you’re anything like me you won’t be able to remember that - I had to look it up before posting to make sure I’d got it right.  :rofl:  I think that’s the name of the area where he was found, but not being local to Paws Inn it doesn’t mean anything to me so I think I’ll call him Cled …or Cleddie …..or Cledders ….. or maybe Cadet (1st class) Cledford because he’s a brave little soldier.  :Luv2:  He has a lovely white tip on the end of his tail and I've included the pic with used his litter tray in it because he had a very runny tummy when he arrived and we're proud of the improvement.  ;)

Auntie Tan kindly put a few extras in the package so we gave one to Millie (she of the hooky claw) whereupon she became the most animated I have ever seen her.  Generally she stays glued to her heated bed, except when she’s eating or using her tray.  :evillaugh:


Ben, who is now an absolute sweetie,  :Luv2: also got a catnip toy and a new scratch post with dangly bits after he complained about his old one.  I can’t think why.  :rofl:

We had much excitement at the Inn on Wednesday, unwrapping parcels that had arrived the day before.  ;D

 
First off it was the big new scratch posts – at last.  Since the Purrs auction funded them I have posted pics on a new thread in General Cat Chat because it has a wider readership. http://www.purrsinourhearts.co.uk/index.php/topic,42894.new.html#new  Poor Dainty got a bit stressed when she had to go in a carrier and poor Debbie got a bit scratched trying to get her in there   :evillaugh: but harmony was soon restored.


Next we tackled an intriguing parcel from the Purrs shop that was addressed to Ginga Ninja, Noodles and Grasshopper.  :shify:  We had a bit of a clue what might be in there when we found that in our absence Olly and Tula had got their paws (and teeth) into it and were under the kitchen table fighting each other for possession.  :rofl:  Fortunately we rescued it before any real damage was done to either the contents or the cats.  :evillaugh:


Grasshopper said it was too cold to come out to play so we’ve saved his toy for another day but Ginja Ninja and Noodles were very pleased and say thank you very much to their benefactor.  You know who you are.  :thanks:

Sounds like it was fate for Sonny & Jimbo to go to these people, like you said only the best for those special boys   :hug:

I'm guessing the newbies who are 'Paws Inn colours' are monochrome as Sheila so delightfuly phrases it!  :naughty: They both sound like they've had a hard time of it lately so must be very relieved to find themselves warm and safe at Paws Inn. I know there are no pics but how about names, sexes, ages please?!

Yesterday’s home delivery of the Gingers went according to plan and all is well with them.  ;D  I’m not so sure about Debbie though; she was heartbroken and even Rob had a tear in his eye when they left.  :shocked:  I must say my day at the Inn was unnervingly quiet without either them or the Puddings.  :shify:


Their new home really couldn’t be better.  Their experienced slaves are known to Debbie so although they’re outside the usual Paws Inn rehoming area we won’t lose touch with them completely.  :)

 
It really was rather wonderful how it all happened.  ;D  They’d reserved them ages ago but then due to circumstances weren’t able to go ahead, and the phone call to say that all was now well came just 15 minutes before the people who subsequently took the Puddings were due to arrive.  Given that the Puddings new slaves had a ‘thing’ for ginger cats, it was a nick of time phonecall and we ended up homing 4 instead of just 2.  :phew:


On to the newbies.  ;D  They are both lovely, friendly souls and both are Paws Inn coloured.  :shify:  Sorry but no photos at the moment.  :-[   I will post more details later but basically the first was left behind when the owners moved  >:( and has been on our waiting list for some time.  The second was taken to the vets by the people who look after a feral colony after they found him in a very bad state.  Presumably somebody had dumped him there because he was poorly.  >:(  The diagnosis was cat flu and although he is much better now we have him isolated in a collapsible pen indoors, in a room that is normally a cat-free area.  :scared:

Tsk tsk ladies, patience is a virtue.   ;)

I've only just found out myself because I haven't been at the Inn today, and as usual Debbie has been doing all the work. So, despite not wanting to go in the carrier, Ginger and Treacle Pudding are now ensconced in their new home.  ;D  They will be living with a doggie - a border collie who has lived all her life with cats and his been fretting since the last one went to the bridge.  :Luv:  Whilst at the Inn the Puddings have heard next door's dog but have never seen it,  so have never learned to fear the species.  That's the theory anyway. :crossed:  There are of course some lovely humans in the house as well.  :evillaugh:


Debbie will be taking Sonny and Jimbo to their new home tomorrow.  We don't normally do home deliveries  :evillaugh: but this is a special case. Well they are the last cats that T ever rescued and we have to be doubley, tripley, absolutely sure that they approve of their forever home.  They will - oh yes they will.  ;)

At last we have freed up some pens.  :)  Ermmm not for long.  :shify:  I'll be at the Inn tomorrow so I'll tell you about the newbies after I've met them.

 After a good start to the year re-homing has stalled.....



Who would have thought that the Gods read Purrs.  ;D  I'm not going to tempt fate by naming names but if all goes according to plan   we'll be waving bye-bye to some inmates on Saturday.  :crossed:

I can't be the only one itching to know if everything went to plan today  :shify: :crossed:

I jumped to the Dainty/Fontaine conclusion too  :(

I'll tell you one thing though. The remaining bottlefeds that Debbie was fostering have got a lovely forever home and have settled in really well.   :shify:   ;)

I'm having difficulty believing this, I wonder if the 'new' owner could provide photographic evidence  :naughty:

Oh dear.  :-[  I should have realised that you lovely people would have your fingers crossed for Dainty and Fontaine but sadly they remain.


There's no reason to suppose things won't go according to plan, its just that it happened so fast we couldn't really believe it after the bleak period we've been going through and I don't want to break the spell.  :doh:
