We lost our cat with throat cancer a couple of years ago. He was quite a character in the shop. He would sleep in the dog beds and wait for an unsuspecting dog and owner to walk past and jump on them. He did have the odd customer over the years when he was laid across the counter and they tried to stroke him. He would allow it for so long then sink his teeth in lol. Most of our customers loved him though and he was much missed by all.

Roxanna would love another one, but not while we have the Jack Russells. They got on ok with Charlie but he was here first and when we got them as puppies they could walk underneath him. He soon showed them who was boss Grin Grin

Dev loves cats, how is yours doing mate LoL LoL LoL

One of ours has stomach cancer at present the vets gave him 2 weeks to 2 months back in May, still with us thankfully we did think would have to phone vet this morning as he really unwell now the boss up most the night with him, he has good and bad days as expected but over the last week or so more and more bad ones

That’s such a shame Buster, it is horrible to lose any pet.
Thankfully our cat didn’t seem to suffer to bad. He was still playing the day before he died. He had gone off his food for a couple of days and seemed to be having trouble breathing when lying down. We thought he had a chest infection. I took him to the vet in the morning and they checked him over and said that from the neck down he was fine so they decided to sedate him to see if he had either tonsillitis, which apparently cats can get, or something stuck in his throat. I left him with them. I hadn’t been home more than half an hour when they phoned to say that they had lost him on the operating table. They found that he had cancer from his throat right down his windpipe. I think that while unsedated he was managing to breath but once sedated the windpipe had just closed up. They had tried without success to revive him. I’m glad they couldn’t really as it wouldn’t have been fair on him.

Got a better picture of the missey

She was eating corn with fish oil on it, out of a spoon. I quietly picked up the camera, but she was awake to it! LoL LoL

Looking very nice mate 👍

I had one of the boys helping me.

Flynn likes being near his parents now.

He was pretty feral when we bought him home from the rescue place. He still sinks his teeth in if he feels cornered, but when his daddy arrives home he is upside down with happiness.

He is a lovely boy!

He certainly looks nice and chilled out Murray 👍😀
I have had several cats over the years most of them have been very good with the pigeons, sadly all of the ones I have had met an untimely end under the wheels of cars 😥😥😥
Still have 2 at the moment one of which lives Mum and the other with us, I wouldn't trust either of them with my pigeons 🤔

Sorry to hear that mate, very sad. It is very hard saying goodbye to our old friends but we will keep having them.

Grin Grin

Anyway, as agreed, I sent the bloke who owned the beautiful stray a message letting him know if it was still here, or if it had cleared out.

He told me a bit more about the pigeon. She was clocked, on night fall, from 500 miles two weeks before she was sent to the race I got her from.

I think he was getting cold feet about giving it away. I left the door open, if he wants to come and get her.

Regards

Murray.

Good that you have found out a bit more about her Murray, I reckon the owner was expecting her to make the trip back to him 👍😟 I have to say she does sound like she is a useful little bird to have, I think I would have wanted her back 😀👍
You best hope she lays soon mate just in case he turns up on your doorstep 🤣😂

I put the nest boxes in the little stock shed today, and moved some pairs in there. 

Put the babies back in the loft. They all had a look outside and found their way in when I called. All ok! Happy  

Immediately my lovely little blue chequer stray pigeon and her handsome yearling mate claimed an empty box. 

She is absolutely gorgeous, and is a proven 600 miler. 

He is a quality pigeon, Van loon x Jansen X Jansen x Van Loon x Van de Rhree. It's one of my own breed. Laugh   Only been trained, but always does it right.

That was 10 minutes after I took the old pair out and put them in the stock shed. 

Boom! Laughing Out Loud  

Yes they make a nice pair. He is only medium sized, and quite inbred. She is just a nice medium size too. Hopefully the outcross will produce something worthwhile.
