Hi. It's Helene, the lady who adopted Teddy and minky.
I know it's been a long time, but wanted to keep you up to date. As you will be aware Minky died a couple of years ago. However, Teddy is still going strong.
She is becoming soppier as she gets older, wanting more attention.
Lee has now trained her to get up onto the window sill if she wants Dreamies!
We moved house & had a bit of trouble with her weeing on the living room carpet, but we seem to have got over that now. Just wanted to let you know how she is doing & I will try and put some pictures on.

Hi all,
I hope some of you remember these two darlings.
However, i have some sad news. Minxy was put to sleep last week. She had slowed down & was becoming very frail. Although right up until the end, she purred non-stop.
We were glad that in the last few months of her life, she had a big garden to roam in.
She is now buried with the roses & will always remain in our heart.
Teddy continues to do well, although i'm sure she misses her sister. She still wakes us up at 5am & is currently demanding cuddles! She too enjoy's the large new garden & now likes to do a bit of birdwatching!!! She send's purrs xxxx
Well. I thought you may like an update, even though it is sad new's. I was reading back on the posts when you were all trying to get them help. Thank god for people like you all. Bless you & thank you for giving me my babies
Helene xxx

It's lovely to hear of this update Helene because I remember at the time so wanting to help these oldies but have 2 of my own.  I am so pleased these 2  have got the happiness they deserve.

Aww Helene what fantastic news, they were so lucky to find you & Lee  :wow:
You're right they have always been indoor cats & i'm so happy they're venturing out to experience the great outdoors. Your descriptions of them makes me smile & i can't wait to tell my brother, we can never thank you & Lee enough for giving them their wonderful forever home  :)

Hi all,

It's Helene, Teddy and Minkys adopted mum  :Luv:

Sorry I have'nt been in touch sooner to let you know how they both are.
They have both settled in really well and it feels like they have been with us all their lives.

Minky contuinues to do the paw thing and is really affectionate, she has also taken to being carried around with her head resting on my shoulder, a bit like a baby!!! She adores Lee and if she feel she is being ignored will walk all over the computer keyboard when trying to work.

Teddy has found her place in the attic where she can sunbathe to her hearts delight!! She is a bit like an alarm clock and at 5pm will sit by the back door waiting for Lee to get home from work, then at 10pm prompt she will start bleating to let me know that it is time for her cuddles!!!

As far as we are aware, they have always been indoor/ house cats, but now they have begun to venture intpo the back garden (under supervision!). Teddy is a bit wary, don't think she likes the cold floor!!! Minky, however loves it, she even sits by the back door and Miaows to go out for a while!!!

I am so glad we got them, love really can happen at first sight!!

Will try and post some pictures

Hi all,

Teddy is now in the habit of coming in last thing at night when I am reading, to sit on my chest & takes the opportunity to headbutt the book!! (He also has the unfortunate habit of coming in at 5am for a cuddle. Any suggestions gratefully received!!!)

Helene


Hi Helene,

I spoke to my brother about Teddys early morning capers, he said that's the time their owner used to get up, unfortunately he didn't offer any advice on how to stop her :)

I was also particulary touched by their plight . (I lost my cat Teddy two years ago on my birthday. )
I did what I could to arrange a rehoming. So glad to see they have a really loving home now just in time for christmas.The money I offered to assist with the travel costs and food
I pledged the £50.00 to Wizz as She offered to take them if things didn't work out.

oh Helene I'm so pleased I've really followed these 2 and if it hadn't been for the fact I'm only allowed 2 cats (hubby's rule - well joint really!) I'd have adopted them myself (recently adopted 1 oldie have 1 already).  I'm sure they'll be really happy with you and you with them.  Best wishes and thanks from me (made my day) ;D ;D ;D

Aww Helene, I'm so very pleased they're both doing well :)

Isn't Minky funny when she does that with her paw, no one has any idea why she does it  ;D

Did you decide to keep Teddy as Teddy or did you change it to Tiggy, i think that suits her better than Teddy!

Can't wait to see pics

Hi all,

Just wanted to give you all an up-date on how Teddy & Minky are doing.

They both seem to have settled in really well & took no time in making themselves known, although Minky took slightly longer than Teddy!!

Minky is really chatty & loves curling up on our knees for a cuddle, she is also still raising her paw & kneading the air which is soooo cute!!

Teddy is now in the habit of coming in last thing at night when I am reading, to sit on my chest & takes the opportunity to headbutt the book!! (He also has the unfortunate habit of coming in at 5am for a cuddle. Any suggestions gratefully received!!!)

Joking aside, they are both really well and so adorable. Can't beleive they werent snapped up sooner, but on the other hand I am glad they were'nt!!
I will post some pictures as soon as I can find the attatchments for my camera!!!

Some replies have been lost on here when the second forum update took place...

Niki posted saying that the cats had been collected by their new parents and then they posted themselves saying how well they were settling in. in their new home ;D

Thanks for that Helen, i thought i was going mad!!

Helene (Ted & Minky's new mum) rang me last night, Teddy (who's now known as Tiggy - i think that suits her :) )was wrapped in a duvet with her partner lol  & Minky had just come into the room to investigate.  Both had spent the night on a double bed that Helene had specially made up for them - bless!
They sound like they've definitely settled in & i'm so happy  ;D

Helene's user name is purrrfect & she's going to keep coming on here to up-date  ;D

That is such wonderful news Niki.? I knew Anne wouldn't let you down if there was anything she could do to help.? Bless her...she's such a star.

Fingers crossed it all works out wonderfully...it's good to know that they'll enjoy a happy Christmas and well done to you for working so tirelessly on their behalf.? ?

(If I could I would post five stars after my text....we have everything else ha ha)

Tan, we need some star emoticons for these heroes!

Lots of love
