and to finish off I've badgered poor Sheila for a pic of the main darling momma Kipper.  Such a stunner  :blow kiss: :blow kiss: :blow kiss:

Sadly she's not well atm but she's at least attempted her dinner this evening.  Her daughter Penny from previous litter is the image of her.  Kipper will be reunited with Penny very soon and rehomed together by Linda in Wales





and yes I do see the colour resemblance with our darling angel Boris  :Luv: :Luv:

and a couple more of Snowy and her babies.  Thankfully the fifth little black fella is doing OK following a very worrying start.  Sally gave it a nudge and seems that's all it needed  :Luv2: :Luv2:

There is another little ginger somewhere  :shify:

With usual apologies for anything I've misunderstood and mixed up as so difficult to keep up with who is bunking with who  :Crazy:

Am stunned and delighted to report that Hench has had his leg amputated and regained bowel and bladder function so is off to stay in Pam's facility to enjoy cage rest along with another amputee on the way to her from elsewhere.  Really didn't look good for Hench but  :cuddle:

Mark's finger became infected from the bite that Trixie gave him but despite having to go to hospital he has just carried on ....... nothing slows that man down  :-:  Hope it heals quickly Mark  :hug:

And so to Kipper which brings some sad news but very positive overall. Her first born Beyonce with the poorly back feet who was abandoned by mom is still alive.  Kipper pushed another two out the same evening.  One white (Blanco also with bruised hind feet) and one large ginger (Nino).  Both also abandoned by mom.  Kipper was brought to vet for a Caesarian section the following day and seems still had 3 more kittens inside.  One sadly died in utero and one little white boy did not survive the night.  The last little white boy is now with Ruth.

Whilst at the vet Kipper coughed up a lump of infection from her lung so intended TNR will not be appropriate.

As Mark put it, what on earth would have happened if Kipper had been left outside.  Very likely would have died as well as all 6 kittens instead of her surviving with four of them  :hug: :hug:

Anyone wants any pics?

A sad time of things for Sheila right now.  Am rooting for Brian, hoping that Milo's trots can be brought under control, and that Hench is fighting his corner, bless their paws.

Hoping Fudge and Milo can be re-homed together once everything has ben sorted.

And a big welcome to Rosie.   :welcome:  Very exciting development that.

Also hoping that Kipper's kittens are doing well.  Big hugs to all at WFCP, hooman and furries.  :hug: :hug: :hug:

I think we all know that cat rescue has it's ups and downs and am afraid WFC hit a bad patch recently  :( :( :(

Jasper deteriorated further and has been through enough.  RIP sweetheart  :'( :'(

Hench was involved in an RTA and Sheila brought him in last Thursday.  Very sadly things are not looking good atm  :( :( No bladder or renal function since he was brought in and x ray shows further fractures to his pelvis indicating possible nerve damage (altho thankfully negative for FIV and FeLV)  Despite his injuries, Sheila has given the go ahead to remove his leg and everyone now hoping for miracles.  Extra special Purrs vibes please for this poor lad.  Hench is definitely owned as wearing nasty plastic flea collar but owners not yet found.

Milo & Fudge were brought back from adopters due to allergy and Milo's diarrhoea  :(

Trixie was living with another cat in a shelter in a garden.  A kitten was very sadly found dead in the shelter  :'( :'( so Trixie and her remaining two kittens were brought in (well done Mark and hope the finger is recovering OK -  :owwww:).  Second kitten was later found outside the nest and also died  :'( :'(   Trixie then abandoned the remaining kitten (now named Brian) so it was left to Sheila to get him through Sunday night.  Cue the numerous messages from the team offering heat pads, specialist nursing bottles etc.  Thankfully Sheila found a vet nurse yesterday to hand rear this little man so everything crossed for him.  Trixie was spayed yesterday and, apart from swollen uterus, nothing to indicate why she behaved as she did.  Just too young  :( :(  She will be released back to life with her pal in her garden with no worries of future pregnancies.

Onwards and upwards though .......

Sunday was fundraiser day with both Pets at Home and the St Barnabas concert in late afternoon (concert brought is a very  handy £363)  Well done all who took part  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Amongst all the mayhem Rosie (Sheila's adopted 6 month old beautiful dawgie  :blow kiss: :blow kiss:) arrived safely from Greece.  Quiet, placid temperament but she found her bark finally last night due to the excitement of the arrival of the first of Kipper's kittens.   Worryingly the first one out of the nest already (little dark tortie with white patches on her tummy). Hopefully just a matter of birthing starting out of the banana box.  Baby has very good lungs though  :) :)  Expecting another 4 kittens to emerge yet ........
 
As always, Mark seems to be everywhere at once.  I really think we should all club together and get him a superman outfit  :innocent:

Looks like Emma will not have Queenie and her incredibly beautiful 6 kittens for much longer altho WF4C could really do with volunteers to help with home checking.  One of Emma's pals also interested in adopting momma Queenie herself  :wow:

Little cross eyed, Noddy, Lola, Rizla and Tigger are off to the adoption centre today  :wow: :wow:

Thank heavens that a new fosterer with shed loads of experience is joining from NLAC and another two fosterers recently passed checks which will be  a great help leaving Sheila time to get on with other things, even to have a break ..... who knows  :-:

Finally Barney has been reserved by the fabulous woman who does long distance rescue runs across the UK and will move to his fabulous new home in the country after he has been "reconditioned" by the fabulous Linda in Wales.

Hi all.  I've got a bit of time for a short update on some of recent WFC activities. 

They never seem to stop to draw breath and I have to admit I often don't follow exactly which cat is being cared for by who, for how long etc as the turnaround is miraculously frequent.  Heaven only knows what happened to the poor cats in the area before WFC started up  :(

Last Wednesday started well with Smudge being trapped and brought in to care but sadly later that morning it became necessary to say farewell to Valentino  :'( :'( :'(  His poor heart wouldn't stand the anaesthesia; he was too sick and in too much pain; simply unfair ro put him through any more hurt.  Very upsetting for all involved in the struggle to save him  :hug: :hug:

The day continued with better news for Sally's former charge Holly who was given the opportunity to join Liam the laundry cat at stables and to live under the watchful eye of the vet receptionist  ;D  Meanwhile she was safely bedded down in her heated cabin.
 
The day ended with the new fosterer officially taking in her first foster Jasper who she rescued herself  :)

Things continued apace on Thursday.  Preggie mum Kipper, who was trapped by Mark, found herself all snug and cosy at Sally's with her 5 passengers all ready to pop in the next week or two (yes all counted on the ultrasound).

Smudge proved to be in meltdown in care so, to preserve his mental health and the fosterers wellbeing, he was returned to Cazs garden and his furry family.

Eddie went to the vet and then back to foster care with strong antibiotics for his suspected flu.
 
Scruffy Badger finally left hospital after a week on a drip, just strong enough to wolf a sachet of finest fish dinner in two seconds flat  :drool; , happy in his heated bed in foster care.

The stray cross eyed kitten "Noddy" has yet to be claimed but he soon found his appetite. 

Elsa Ragamuffin and "Our Alfie" went to the adoption centre where they will be given the best chance of finding their forever homes.

Abraham spent the evening on Sheila's knee having his ears pulled  :shify:

Friday started well with Mark trapping two of Kipper's three older kittens Barney and Penny.  It's only a matter of time before their ginger brother Bertie is brought into the fold.  Come on Bertie.  Play the game kid  :hug: :hug:

Meanwhile fundraising activities continue so if anyone nearby is free late afternoon on 25th March, you are very welcome.

Jules and Mike sound the purrfect couple and wish them well for their new life in the country.  So pleased for Angel.  Things couldn't have worked out better for her  :Luv2:

Stories like hers truly inspire amongst the sadder tales of human lack of concern about their pets. 

Sending Abraham more quick recovery vibes esp for that rear end of his  :hug: :hug: and throwing in a  :cuddle: for our lovely Sheila.  A virtual one only of course due the the rib mrs  :)

Morning all.

Quick update and a wish to all you cat Mummies (and Daddies) out there that your furkids would send you a card today with feelings of ambivalence if they could write.  ;D

Angel is off to her new home with Jules and Mike who kindly fostered her, and now can't let her go (they also adopted Neichi, Bonnie, Clyde, Blakey and Bramble from us  ;D ) and their new life in the Country tomorrow. WFC are helping with the transfer as this wonderful couple have been fabulously supportive and just jolly good folks who restore my faith in human kind. 16 cats will be living alongside their planned goats, chickens, etc. Living the Dream.  :Luv: Angel will be in her element, she's already bonded with one of their resident cats Horlicks during her period of cage rest so is amongst friends in her new adventure.  ;D

We've been so busy, not helped by the fact I slipped and fell in the snow last week and cracked a rib so it's all been a bit more of an effort than usual. I'm just off to get washed having steam cleaned 6 pens this morning, then will be cooking lunch for OH who has gone back to bed (cos he's an honorary cat mummy too, apparently).  :evillaugh:

Take care all, hope you all have lovely days with your furless and furry families alike.  :hug: :hug: :hug:

Been having trubble with getting on to Purrs in last few days ........... connection seems to come and go  :-:

Been keen to share a few pics of one of Sheila's very special charges who needs and so very much deserves the very strongest possible Purrs vibes to help get him well pleez  :( :(

Like "rugrat", people have been feeding Abraham in this condition for 3 years.  He was just curled up on the pavement waiting for death. Poor little mite was brought to safety and comfort in Sheila's  emergency pen a few days ago and then off to the vets to go on an emergency drip. He is a neutered male 10+ years, no chip.

Sheila collected him from the vet yesterday.  Among other problems he has very bad diarrhoea but eating for England.  Abe survived the night although his diarrhoea is still going and he'd been sick, so not much of his meds would've gone into his system. He's asleep on Sheila's knee as I type and now wearing his new makeshift sweater (Sheila's old cardigan sleeve).

Just so heartwarming to hear from you Sheila, and catch up on the goings on.  Poor little Clive - mahoosive healing and loving vibes to him from all at Padtowers, with Super-Snoozles thrown in for good measure.  They can be very powerful, yer knaa.   ;) :) :hug: :hug:

So pleased your spider senses were indeed at work.

Delighted Paulie found her Forever Home (who could resist?) and hope that Jimmy (and Clive) too can find theirs before very much longer.   :Luv2: :Luv2:  Oh if only people realised the Power of The Parlour Panthers.

Great news that Angel is coming along nicely, and hoping that Mafalda, Ford, Timmy and Phoebe love their new home and have amazing adventures in Wales.   :) :)

I have no doubt whatsoever that Tad will be at your side throughout all of your endeavours, Sheila.   :hug: :hug:

How lovely to hear from you and about the sterling work you and the others are doing.

Clive :care: :care: :care: :blow kiss:

I'll post some pics for you of 'The Lump' aka Merlin and the kittens, who will still be the kittens when they are old and grey. Well Pippa is already grey, but you know what I mean. ;)

My vet had a copy of the magazine with the tribute to Tad in it. They gave it to me. ;D I only met her the once, but she was lovely. :Luv: I am sure that her spirit is with you. :hug: :hug: :hug:

Off to Wales on Thursday we're bringing 9 cats in as part of my FRET programme, and 4 little ferals going out to new lives in the country. Like little furry evacuees there's Mafalda and her kitten Ford, Timmy and Phoebe all of whom have proved unresponsive even to chikkun, so off to the Valleys it is.
Dawn, my condolences to your friend. I'm sure we can help with the 9 due in this week as none will be reserved until our vet has signed them off.  :cat rub:

Today I got a gold star.  :gold stars: Poorly kitten came in over Christmas, little Clive is a snuggle bum but had really bad diarrhoea we simply couldn't shift. Well today I demanded full bloods despite my vet telling me it was some kind of food intolerance (having ruled out parasites and bacterial infection) but I knew there was more to it. Well damned good job I did as poor little snuggly Clive has Pancreatitis. He's in hospital on a drip. Lets just hope my spider senses picked this up quickly enough.
I personally think Tad is on my shoulder these days acting as guardian angel for these little mites.  :cheer:
His pal Jimmy, therefore, is going up for adoption. He's a super little mini parlour panther but needs to come to you rather than the other way around. Once he's with you he flips on his back for tummy rubs and purrs up a storm but I know he's missing his little cell mate Clive.   :where:

Vibes for little Clive please?  :hug:

Update on Angel or broken leg girl, she's doing really well and the external frame is off. Her pin due to be reduced/removed w/c 24th Feb all being well it's looking good, due to some excellent veterinary care and the doting attention of her WFCP fosterer Jules.  :crossed:

Paulie the Tip kitten found her forever home and we're monitoring the allotment cats we spied down there during our visit, all of which look well but sadly entire.

Paula, I'm delighted the Goring arm of WFCP are all doing so well under your care - thank you for the update and the smiles. xx

Rosella, I know you're otherwise occupied right now but I'd like to thank you for keeping things fresh here for our supporters and cheerleaders.
It's vital our team know what their work means to the outside world, as sometimes we get so bogged down in what we're doing we fail to catch the bouquets when they're thrown.

 :Applause:
