I am sorry that things are so hard for you at the moment and am glad if I am able to do a little to help. I'm only able to drive very short distances due to my back problem (about 20 mins tops). Mr S is a cabbie but that is very unpredictable and he can never guarantee where he will be - so maybe asking in the transport section would be a good idea.

Does Treacle need to be caged? I can borrow one if needed. He will have to live in our spare bedroom as I don't want to go through the introductions as he will not be staying. Please feel free to pm me if there is anything else you want to know or tell me.

Well someone of another cat forum is taking him, but can't give a date just yet as she has some mother and kittens she rescued that have been ill.
Soon as they are better she will take him ,could only be a few weeks though .
Maybe a transport run could be arranged as I am miles away .
I could drive so far , but not a long way as can't leave Winston in case he has another funny turn.
In fact I hardly leave the house now except to,see my brother and he is deteriating !
I even have been getting my shopping delivered .
Anyone help with transport or shall I ask in the transport section?

It would be really helpful and thank you so much .

We can take him on a temporary basis - as long as he really does have somewhere else to go. The problem is that we are down in Bournemouth...

Is there anyone yet that could possibly help, or foster Treacle for a short time?
There is a possible home in Oxford for him ,but not  for a few weeks .
Anything would be appreciated .
Thanks

Mainly local ones and he is on another pet forum .
Winston and Ginny still aren't very well, Cody seems a bit better. None of them have eaten much at all today . It worries me so much , especially as Winston is so frail ( but not thin) although I think he has lost some weight lately. :scared:

He's a lovely lad and really deserves a good home, after all he has been though. Fingers crossed for him (and you)!

Gill, pop a photo on here, I'll check my contacts and see if anyone has an opening for a farm cat hereabouts, sounds like he would do well as a working cat?

Treacle is still looking, he isn't too bad with the other cats , it's mainly Winston he hates , think its because he stares as he is blind  :'(.

Also it's the free roaming I can't cope,with as not used to my cats roaming anywhere only the back garden .unless he was kept as an indoor cat which obviously isn't an option here .
He is off and gone every chance he gets and just comes back for food.
He is staying in the potting shed at the moment , but won't be any good when winter comes.
Anyone help,please ?
Thanks

Gill, I'm so sorry that you are having to contend with this, on top of everything else  :( I do hope that you can find somewhere for Treacle soon so that you can concentrate on the other issues you have to deal with. He looks like a real darling but it does seem that he might be better as an onlycat.

I really wish I could find him a home.
He has been put the garden all over today and scratched a neighbour that tried to catch him, Been in at least 4 people's house for food and been through cat flaps .
Can't cope with all this .
Tonight Cody isn't well for some unknown reason .
Feel like I am getting t the end of my tether with all the stress .
Can't understand why the cats keep falling ill either .if it's not one its another !? :tired:

Gill, am so sorry to hear this isn't working out, and know this will be pulling your emotions all over the place.

I sincerely hope that a good and loving home where Treacle/Garfield can be an only cat, and the apple of his owner's eye will be found and quickly, because the stress of this on top of Winston's illness is doing you no good at all.    :hug: :hug:

Oh Gill, it's completely understandable, and my heart is breaking knowing how hard this decision has been, but I also can see it's the right one for all of you, especially Winston.

I wish I could help, we're full up  otherwise I'd take Garf in a second as he sounds very much Tuftyclub material  :Luv:

Unfortunately things aren't working out with him .
He seems to have taken a dislike badly to Winston, think its possibly because Winston can't see and will just wander in his own sweet way and sometimes that's into the other cats who are used to him.

So plus him being an escape artist as well , I really don't need the other two young ones following his lead and spending my days looking round the fields for three or 4 cats every day .
Plus with Winstons illness now ,he just needs peace and quiet and not a 3 year old spitting and hissing at him.

Garfield/ Treacle is 3 years old, ginger and absolutely no health issues, blood tested , vaccinated and neutered .
Spotlessly clean , always uses his litter tray and overly affectionate .
With hindsight I should have realized it was going to be too much ,but as I didn't want any more harm to come to him, I let my heart rule my head.
I just have too much stress going on and need to put Winston first.
Please can anyone offer him a loving home ?
Thank you .
