Sid says good morning from under a lampshade! I'm playing my Christmas at Downton Abbey CD and I swear he smiled at Joy to the World!!

Thanks Berghill. I'll make a note of that. Thinking of getting myself a diary to remind myself what to do each month. Your advice will be my first entry!

Lyn - brilliant! That made me gargle my coffee with laughing!! My old cat was the same, so much so that a delivery chap once asked me if 'he' was pregnant!

SwissSue - very well said. This nice thread is the antithesis of anything angry, cruel, negative, or plain silly. I hate all that and to be honest, feel more than a little intimidated by it, especially the feeling of aggression that comes across. Maybe I'm just a scaredy-cat! ????

Ruby looks adorable! What a lovely coat. She looks very comfy on that grass.

It's great that so many kind people take in rescue cats.
