Hello, long time gone and I see much has changed.

Sadly Stig passed away on the 21st of July. We had almost 15 years together and words can't describe the loss.

Hug your furry family members tightly tonight.

Take care

Rob.

He really is scrumptious!   He looks right fierce, but so - vulnerable!  :rofl:  The boys will come round - they just need time.  He sounds adorable and he looks even better.  Love the fact he's an "escaper" - a super-hero with "powa"

Much better today he lets me hold him no trouble and purrs and kneads :) He will also eat from my hand. The boys are still having a hiss though :( and are not keen that I smell of him

He is escaping the cage with increasing ease (not sure how :) he may be able to walk through the bars, heroes fashion lol) so have left the cage open and put his food outside of it, also there was an old bed (mouse like igloo) of Marco's and Polo's and he is sleeping in there, have put my t-shirt in there with him for  him to get used to my scent and it seems to be working :)

He is also using the litter tray like a good trooper :)

Ahhhh - hmmmm - if I was Stig, I'd be eyeing up Marco and Polo and thinking "snuggles - I'll have a bit of that!"

He's gorgeous bless him.  And his two new bruvvas   ;)

Yes I think he was rescued from a dump :) about a week ago. he is 7 weeks old

held him now and made the cage escape proof (for now :) ) wore gloves at first and while he hissed and spat at me he never scratched or bit me :)

Plans were pushed up as circumstances had changed at him rescue home

Have a pic which will upload soon but its taken of him under the chair lol

I thought you were getting him Tuesday, Horza? Either way, good luck helping Stig realise people aren't all bad. ( I guess the rescue workers already started that. :) )

Stig has arrived he is tiny and very timid, Polo had a hiss when he was in the carrier and have set him up in the spare room. He came with a cage so set that up with litter food a box for him to hide in which he promply did :) left the room to let him settle a bit after his car journey. Went to check on him after 20 mins and he had managed to escape from the cage, don't know how but the corner squares are biggest and think he managed to squeeze through and he is now hiding under the spare computer table :) but the room is closed off just going to make it harder to introduce him to the boys if he can walk through cages :)

Pics later (he's crambed himself in the corner)
