I think she's trying to find the 'From the Cat's Mouth' section  ;)

Hope you've got somet really nice to give her when she comes back from the vet on Thursday :hug:

I'm thinking more and more that she's been abandoned. She gets into a lot of mischief, more than any kitten I've had, and took a while to get used to using a litter tray, but she's also more affectionate than any cat I've had, so she's not been treated cruelly before she was kicked out (if she was).
Or maybe I'm just trying to convince myself that nobody will come for her so I won't have to imagine giving her up.   :sneaky:
Anyway, here she is trying to take over my computer:

Finally got a half decent shot with my camera instead of my phone. Lily spends a lot of time sleeping on me, so I can't reach my camera, or running around like a maniac, so I miss her in the photo!

She's booked in for next Thursday for spaying and micro chipping. She's not allwed food after 8pm, so it looks like she'll be spending the night in my room with just a bowl of water and a litter tray. Oh joy!  :Crazy:

Just got a reply from CP about a voucher, so I'll be taking her in for spaying sometime next week. Fortunately she is really easy to handle, so I won't have any trouble getting her into the carrier.
Not for the first visit, anyway!

Alfie would sooo love to play with Cleo, sometimes he just can't help himself and reaches out a paw towards her - or bops her fluffy tail as she goes past  :evillaugh:

Sasa meeps at Lupin if he gets too close and becomes a proper shout and hiss if he doesnt listen, Lupin will try bopping Misa and rumbling, Misa lies there and then bops back harder and harder, then when Lupin just walking past will stick out a paw lol

Unless mine are trying to murder each other I leave them to it.  After a few minutes of hissing they are back to ignoring each other again. :)

The funny thing is, Bramble used to be the instigator when she was a kitten. Now the tables are turned, she gets grumpy!  :Crazy:

Oh wow she is stunning :D Dave
hmm settled in with her Slave ok then just need to make friends with her boss
It is worrying when they don't really get on yet Ya doing the right thing letting them sort it out and in the side line to step in if needed and try to be calm lol

Similar situation here with my two lads garf and marl with Mr blue newbie~ish stray
They don't get on with him don't really want him in third home but thankfully no bad fighting.  Mr blue knows he's number 3 and is always defensive if they go near him
Garf is nawty and will sneak up and bop him one when he's fast asleep! He literally sneaks up , looks , sneaks a bit closer then bop and runs off. Cheeky git!
I don't help as I always intervene and I shouldn't but I get all worried they will fight so it's my fault they prob don't get on very well!

It's brill you wi get her spayed , prev owners can't have cared much as she wasn't done already :(

Xx

Bramble and Lily have entered that worrying stage, just after them not really liking each other. Now they alternate between hissing at each other, and playing chasing games. It's terrifying to watch, because Bramble is more than twice as big as Lily, but Lily is usually the one starting things, often by going up to an unaware Bramble and slapping her!
I'll just have to keep out of it, but be ready to intervene if things get nasty.

Lily's favourite is, of all things, lemon flavour, but I'm keeping it away from her until her stomach settles.
After that, she can have a little. It's got much less lactose than milk, but more than cheese.

She's also hilarious at times, though I often feel guilty for laughing, like when she took a yoghurt pot out of the sink so she could lick the remains of the yoghurt. Of course, she got her head stuck, and I had to chase a cat running backwaeds to free her. (I now wash out the pots immediately.)

By the way, the details I've put in there are in case I've done something wrong, or could do better. Any ideas, please don't hold back. I know everyone here has the best interest of cats at heart!

As some of you know, this little bundle of mischief wandered into my house 2 weeks ago, and seemed determined to stay. Having had a cat go missing a few weeks before, I tried to spare someone else the torment, and had her checked for a chip (there isn't one), posted on local Facebook pages, contacted local cat rescues and RSPCA, and asked around the neighbourhood, all to know avail. I wondered if she may have escaped from a visit to the vet, as I'd heard several stories of that happening, so took her to the nearest one to me, even though I'm not at all keen on that particular practice, but they didn't recognise her.

When I posted about her on another thread, the comments convinced me that I should take the next step and adopt her, so I've given her a name (suggested by a friend, don't blame me!) and will arrange to have her spayed and chipped over the next few days. She still could be claimed so it's provisional, but it occurred to me it always is, especially in the first few months. She could get fed up with me and move on to pastures new!
She seems settled though. If I go to sit down, she's on my lap before I've made contact with the chair. I'm not exaggerating for effect, it's literally true! She's a devil for pinching things to play with, like magazines. I've dug out some cat toys that the others got bored with, including a "fishing rod" type one. I keep that one hidden away in a footstool/box, because the elastic might hurt her if she plays with it unattended, but when I opened the box to get something, she was in like a shot for her toy!
Most of the time though,she sits on my lap, or tucks herself into my arm:

I've had to change Bramble's food over to kitten food, as I think normal food is giving Lily the runs. It doesn't help that I have no idea what she was eating before. It's intermittent, and she doesn't show any signs of discomfort, like dragging her bum on carpets, and she has constant access to water, so I'm not too concerned yet. If it doesn't clear up in a week, then I'll worry. At least I've persuaded her to use a litter tray!
