Pepa had not been seen since Friday morning. Saturday night was one of some concern.

Sunday morning, we awoke to the sound of meowing outside the Window. There appears to have been a disagreement on the quality of the dry food, and water in the fountain, thus the OH was required to supply better wet food. Once fed and fussed, she then decided to steal the OHs place in bed (which she never usually go's on), before falling soundly asleep next to me (which she's not done in the 2 years I've known her).



Hopefully she's now terrified of whatever shed/garage she got herself locked in...that's my working assumption.

It's a door.
They're cats.
Whichever side they're on will always be the wrong one smile
(Ours are just the same - I sometimes wonder if I could modify our sliding patio door with a motor!)

Sadly, Thursday evening, my Milly got hit by a car outside our house and passed away. The driver put her in the boot & the neighbour said where she lived so the driver knocked on the door to say what happened. She didn't suffer as she had already gone.

RIP Milly. You helped me through some bad times and were what I looked forward to the most during the working day, going home to have a cuddle.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Milly looks like my Spider who went to sleep Thursday afternoon frown Hopefully they’re happily chasing mice somewhere together.
The void is horrible. I can’t begin to imagine how you feel even though I’m feeling it too.

Poor Milly.

She looked an absolute sweetie, even though the mice may not have thought that.

Fellow cat owners - what hoover have you got and how well does it work - our Vax is absolutely pants at getting hair out of carpets, doesn't even budge - since the prolonged dry weather, the cats have come in really dusty too and the house is getting 'urrgghh', so need something decent now.

Tried hosing the cats down as they get close to the cat flap, don't like it... (didn't realy).

I’ve got a Dyson Anima but it needs replacing really. Looking at a Shark. Mainly because it has DRLs. But also friend has one and says it’s fab...

Hoovers?

I have 2 Dysons... upright and cordless. Both work OK, but my cats are short haired and don't shed a lot... probably not that helpful getmecoat

We have a Dyson DC40 which is pretty good. I try to brush Bear each day, he really likes it and it hopefully will reduce any hairballs.

RIP Milly frown

Vacuums - thanks all.

So far the shortlist is the GTech Air Ram K9 bundle, the Dyson V8 Animal and the Shark DuoClean truePet - all are about the same money and they all have reviews that love them, or reviews where the other model is preferred, so I suppose it's down to which one I like the look of and if a deal comes up.

Try hoovering the cat! Some cats love being hoovered.

As does my Labrador. It’s weird.

As for the cats. On your life be it.

Back in the '70s, our Siamese would shed quite a lot of her hair onto the carpets, which was a bugger to shift.

So my brother hit on the idea of using the Hoover Dustette stair carpet cleaner - directly on the cat...

As he switched it on, her ears went back and the claws came out briefly, but then she realised that the noise was nothing to worry about. Then he applied the brush to her back and a look of pure ecstasy came to her face - she loved it.

But when he tried the same thing on her fluffy tummy, the results were not quite as successful - the well-known 'four paws and mouth' reaction kicked in.
