Hi Bronte

To upload pictures from pc you need to click onto the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  Not sure about tablets etc.  Some people put the pics onto a hosting site and post the link.

Wonky - I've bumped up Steve the Vet's Sunflower thread for you 'cos he's kindly given advice re treating wounded pusscats.

Lyn, how lovely that you had a visit with Hostafan - very envious that you've seen his garden at first hand

Why is it that, by the time I've showered, breakfasted, given the house a quick wipe over and fed the birds, the grey rainclouds roll in?

ideas needed

Why not try some of the prettier 'lettuces'? e.g. Lollo Rosso and Red Oak leaf - alternated with Little Gems they'd look really pretty

To be on the safe side Denise, why not post a pic on here and we'll do our best to advise

Thanks Steve - that's kind of you   From the photo the cut looks clean (so far).  I think stray cat (aka Flatface) probably had/has 'owners' locally but he chooses to spend his time in Wonky's garden (watching the birds that she feeds) and playing with her cat when Wonky takes her out into the garden.  She's already wormed and de-flead him so that he can associate with Harrie(t)   I'll make sure she's aware of your info re Cats Protection/RSPCA - again, many thanks
