I took on a cat from my daughters boyfriends ( now ex) mum. He was called Tiger, what a wrong name for him. He weighed 18 lbs and was renamed Fatty. I managed to get 4lbs off him but got a bit vicious ahen he was given diet cat food. We had to part with him 4 years ago he had a huge very fast growing tumour around his tongue and windpipe. Its strange as i didnt really want to take him on but was just as upset when he went as i was with the others that i had had from kittens.

A lot of them are things we have taped ourselves so goodness knows what is on them. They take up so much space. I also have all my daughters cuddle toys from when she was a baby, 4 dustbin bags full so whilst she is off will go throught them all and then down to charity shop with them. I still have my first teddy and im now 51 and a bit. Hes called Bo Bo and ahs 1 leg longer than the other from where he was left to dry on the washing line.

Goodness me what a busy day the forum was yesterday taken ages to read it all. Feeling lousey today so hoping a pub lunch will cheer me up. Have decided to clear out the attic. Does anyone know what to do with old video tapes? will probably have to take them to the tip. Made a bread and butter pudding last night not had one for ages and it was lovely so good there is none left. perhaps i will attempt a sponge this weekend. Trouble is they dont last very long.The daughter is off for half term so will be out and about with her next week.

What's the weather like in your area?

I ahev 3 cats a British Blue  who was given to me as he has a curly tail so couldnt have a pedigree. Hes called Grendle after the monster in Beowolf as he is a monster. What he lacks in brains he makes up in brawn. just a thu g really.

My other 2 cats are a brother and sister, Lennie and Elvera. She is a tortoiseshell named after the naughty ghost in Blithe Spirit because she can be naughty. Lennie is a ginger tom who is frightened of his own shadow, a real wimp.

I love them all but i dont like the remains of mice left for me.
