I dropped out of sight a while back, when my life took quite a downturn but, thanks to the birthday greeting which dropped into my inbox on Wednesday, I've found my way back. I couldn't find an introduction thread, so here it is, nearly eight years late!
I had to give up all my cats,but thanks to the kindness of Gina at the cat rescue, I got two of them back, Bramble and Clio. Sadly, Clio made a dash out of the front door (they only had access to the back, and got lost at the front) and hasn't been seen for over a month.
The main reason I came back was the wonderfully helpful people here. I may need some advice soon.
A couple of weeks ago, a small cat, probably about 9 months old, wandered in and refused to leave!
I've done all the stuff you're supposed to do, like checking for a chip, asking neighbours, and contacting vets and rescues, all to no avail. One thing that might have hindered finding where she came from is that I started keeping her in quite early. She hasn't been spayed for one thing, and it's firework season round here, so a lot could go wrong if I leave her to roam.
She's a bit of a handful, so I'm starting to wonder if she's been abandoned. That could be wishful thinking though!
