First and foremost, I hope everyone is getting on ok during these crazy times. For us it feels like lockdown has been more eventful for our cats than us. It’s hardly surprising seeing as they have been the only ones allowed out for a while! Over the Easter holiday we visited the vets on a … Continue reading Cat attack! When my cat was ambushed in the garden by a neighbour cat
When Charlie was diagnosed with Stomatitis he had to have surgery to remove all his back teeth. Following the surgery, he went through a recovery period of about 3 weeks. He got through it all fine but unfortunately, it was quite a difficult time for us and I am not going to hold back on … Continue reading How Long Does It Take For A Cat To Recover From Stomatitis?
Poor Charlie… he’s had a hard time recently, having to have an operation at the vet during the UK lockdown. We now know how veterinary practices are operating during the coronavirus pandemic and we also learned how to give an angry cat his medication.

The best thing we could do was to keep … Continue reading This is why we considered returning our cat to the rescue centre
Warning: Graphic image of wound below. It took us a few weeks to realise that Charlie has two personas. Inside the house, he is the most placid, affectionate and playful cat you could imagine.
