    Default A Happy Ending

    Hello To All

    I have posted previously about our little community of eight cats which we have at work ,they are all spayed/neutered and well fed and some even come and sit in the office to keep us company during our days labors at work .But occasionally we have little intruders which try and join us ,so about four weeks ago there appeared a little timid tortoiseshell female which we accepted and fed extra for , but she always ate after our regulars had and was very timid ,then over the last two weeks it was obvious she was getting a bigger tummy and as we didn't really want our community to increase our concerns of course centered around a baby boom and then an uncontrollable population .So on Sat afternoon I called at The RSPCA center in Cross Lane Wallsey and persuaded them to loan me a cat trap ,and on Mon morning I set it out at 10.00 am after our regulars had been and gone and then at 11.00 am she appeared and crept around the trap went in a couple of times but then backed out and disappeared .So I thought that was it not our day ,but try again we did with some fresh out of the oven turkey and BINGO we got her ,so in the back of my car she popped and off back to Cross Lane went i .The lady in charge named Kay upon viewing the frightened little girl assured me she wasn't a feral cat (we both through the cage rubbed her nose ) and she would be allowed to have her kittens which would be adopted then she would be spayed and as shes a young and nice looking little girl she said they would have no problem re homing her, HOORAY .But I informed her that if they did we at work would welcome her back as a permanent member of our little group ,so yesterday I was more than pleased and it put a smile on my face at the happy result for this lost little girl ,and I am going to keep in touch with them and when shes had her babies go and pay her visit and say hello ,and of course keep an eye that the happy ending planned for her and her babies really does happen.

    Nice work Brian.
    She can have her kittens safely now instead of having a litter hidden away somewhere in this cold weather.It's like an icebox at night.

    Hello

    Just had a phone call from The RSPCA but not really sure what to think, so thoughts pls .The lady started off by saying you can come and collect your cat shes been spayed so of course I responded has she had her kittens (thinking if she has then of course she will have to stay and feed them ) .The nurse then continued that upon examination there was only one in its very early stages and the mums tummy was just very bloated so the kitten was aborted and the mum then spayed but no stitches she was glued and shes healing very well and as it was only a small wound ,so I can collect her . Poor little cat ,shes more than wellcome to come back here ,but my happy outcome for the little girl did not happen ,how very disappointing ,so I shall call there later and possibly see if she at least can be put up for adoption as she would make a lovely house cat for a caring person which I think would be better bet than coming back to our work yard even though we do our best to take care of them all .Will post later when I find out more .

    But she's not your cat,she's a stray....
    I would have assumed that they knew this.If she's very tame and used to being handled then she'd make a very nice pet. If not she'd be better off back at the yard.
    Do you know of anyone nearby who might be prepared to offer her a home?

    Brian, if there really is re-incarnation, I would hope to come back as one of your critters. No offense to anyone else here at CT, as any one of you will also be on my wish list, but Brian would just be my first choice,,,, mostly because he also takes such fine photos and I know I would finally look nice in one.

    Hi
    I called to see my little cat today she is named Trio but is considered too feral to be put up for adoption unfortunately so I will collect her on Monday lunch and she can join our little gang at work ,I have a photo of her and will post that tomorrow.

    So sorry Brian that this has not worked out as you would have liked, you are very kind to take on another member to your furry family back at the yard.
