Gorgeous kitties.

This is my contribution, we had a feral kitten turn up in our garden at the end of July, finally managed to trap her mid August and she has come to be the sweetest little toot and goes by the name Hooch. Though she is getting less kitten-y by the day, we think she must be ~13 weeks ish by now.

Any advice on how to get our 13 year old wheaten terrier to accept her would be welcome! She's bold as brass coming up to investigate him and not put off by his chasing (think she enjoys winding him up!) but he still thinks she's an intruder, worried that if they don't settle we may have to find her a new home, which would be such a shame as socialising her has been such a rewarding experience!

Yes!!!
He is Georgous.
Yesterday I went to a farm in the truck. When I got out a very friendly cat came over and I actually got to pick him up and have a cuddle. He made it known he was cuddled enough so I spoke to a young mum with her daughter who the allowed me to hug their pony. By this time Hamish the cat was in the market for more affection.
It was the most amazing feeling to be around animals again.
Thinking about it..your cat looks like a Hamish!

She looks about the size that Tabitha and her all-white sister were when the two of them started sitting on the wall watching us at suppertime. I saw the sister no more that two or three times in the following years, on one of those times Tabitha went to meet her in the middle of the street and they touched noses.

Little beauty. Is there a canine version of Feliway?

Here we have Ollie, who I've christened Stripey S**t!

He likes to try and climb the curtains when lit up which amuses me but not OH. Apparently he was scaling the coats in the hall the other day!

He's really naughty if trying to have a lie in and will not settle 😡 OH doesn't help this by getting up and feeding him, thus rewarding the behaviour 🙄

SS also seems to believe he can make new SS's, despite being "done" in August. This morning he was necking PD (who was not resisting at all the tart) while erm enjoying himself on the duvet 😨 I thought he was going to try OH leg but unfortunately didn't 😂

The breeder I got my ragdoll from has some GORGEOUS kittens soon to be available. OH is mean and has expressly Forbidden me 😭 they're from the same mating as PD and the dads last litter before he retired!

They are beautiful CCL and SS sounds a tiny terror. I lost Holly in my Avatar last year and my blue BSH girls are now 15 and 16 so when they go I will probably get a new kitten. I had threatened to replace them all with carpets but I know deep down I can’t be without a cat in the house so the carpets will have to wait.
