I got very depressed over losing Mackie, and I'm afraid I didn't have the heart to blog. And we tried to rear 4 kittens abandoned at birth by their mother, and didn't succeed.... the biggest was 80g, normal birth weight is 85-100g. Mouse was barely 70g....
Then we were asked to take Leo, who has badly healed old fractures. Leo is from Spain, and I'm afraid the border control vets think it's ok to put dogs and cats together in a yard overnight without shelter in what was sub zero temperatures.
Leo started out with skeletal problems; now, because he had a scratched eye and caught flu, he has had to have both eyes removed and is blind as well. It's not fair. Fortunately Leo is laid back, and has almost as much of a sense of humour as Mackie. He gets around amazingly well and scrambles up onto the bed and sofa. He has been nervous of jumping onto the balustrade, although he had managed it when blind, before the second operation.
Leila and Scampi belonged to a friend who ran into some Landlord problems, so being the mug I am....

|Saffron, Linnie and Rosie|
|Rebel, whose bum does look big in that|
|Scampi, who has settled in very well.|
Leila, unfortunately, doesn't much like cats and is living in the bathroom. She swears like a trooper and beats seven bells out of Linnie when he tries to be friendly. However, she has ventured out from time to time, so here's hoping she will settle. If not, I may have to find her a no-cat slave.
