We still have the 15 of them. For those of you who can't remember that is, in order of age,
Worrals & Rebel
Piper [aka Chuchundra; Kipling fans will get it]

Leo has kidney problems.  He is on medication; he kinda liked the food at first but was put off by the others trying to eat it [it's someone else's and its different so it must be better.]  Being blind he is antsy in a cage so feeding him in the crate is out of the question.  Hoping that with the pills, at least being grain free should help, and we have phased out kibble for all of them so they are on wet food entirely.

When I next download the camera there are some scampi shots.

Sorry it's been so long

Ill health including Australian flu and problems with medications have had me very dilatory; haven't even mentioned the two babies who came in November.  Pussy Willow, a grey tabby who had a broken pelvis and so will be expected to have mobility problems, and Hazel Catkin, who was going to another lady who bottled out at the last minute.
All cats are fit and health, but Cecil had to have a lion cut because we couldn't comb him daily during the flu, and he knitted too many bits of cardboard into his fur.  He has been wearing a sweater in the coldest weather.

they love to play!

Polly and Piper enjoy the sun

couldn't resist this silly one


It took Worrals a little while to get used to a sweater, but when she did, she loved it

Add captionTom, Leo is on the computer chair behind him, it's his, he assembled it when it came [and duly shredded bits of it]

the amazing three headed cat aka Kelly sits on Ace and Cecil and barely in shot, Worrals and Dora


Ler me see, it's Ace and Piper on cat storage, Rebel IN cat storage, Willow and Hazel on the cushion and Gypsy in pole position on the bed on the wood basket in front of the AGA

Kelly, Polly and Woralls.
Scampi wants you to know that he is hibernating.  He has come down a few times, but is mostly living on a hot waterbottle, re-heated for him twice a day, on my bed.  Pixy hasn't appeared in photos, she's always busy-busy-busy.  I have only a very blurred one of her killing the rotating butterfly.

Not as bad as feared!

Leo had his stitches out and has a clean bill of health so far as tumours are concerned! he has been enjoying the summer weather, though not in the hotter parts of the day.  And here are some gratuitous photos of cats [and one tortoise]

Never ending gloom - sick Leo

Leo's left eye socket broke  open spraying pus, so we took him to the vet and it turns out that there was an infection in his jaw which went up.  it may be a tumour.  Please would all of Leo's fans pray for him that it's just infection  and that he may have more years in which to be pampered, he has had so much shit in his little life, he deserves a good break.
