Neo looks like he was a very happy cat

You made the last few years of his life extra special, and then were brave enough to do the best thing for him

Cheers guys, MrsHogg is in bits, she can't believe how much she loved him, she was never a cat person, but the la'al bugger burrowed his way into everyone's affections. He'd just started climbing on my lap and going to sleep the week before I took him to the vet! We keep hearing his bell jingling round the house! yikes

R.I.P. Neo.

Thank you for making his last few years, warm, comfortable, and happy.

My poor old Neo has had to be put to sleep, he didn't have a good life before coming to us 2 years ago. He was run over by a car when he was 2 ripping one of his front legs off! he managed to drag himself to his previous owners house before collapsing on the step. He lost a lot of blood and almost died. The vet said he would be very lucky to last another 2 years. fast forward 12 years and we found him out in sub zero temperatures stuck frozen to a board, he had fell off the fence and knocked himself out. MrsHogg got him and brought him in to warm up. Turns out his owner had several younger cats who were all bullying him because he was disabled and eating all the food. He had withdrew into himself and was very subdued. We thought he was grey and black. After a warm bath, we discovered he was infact white and black! He was very malnourished, MrsHogg went about feeding him to warm him up. Subsequently, he loved our house so much, he never went home and spent his last 2 years with us. He was attacked by 2 cats in July, they made a right mess of him, a trip to the vets meant he was shaved, his bites cleaned, abscesses drained, anti inflammatory medicine, anti-biotics and pain killers. Despite keeping his wounds scrupulously clean, his infection flared up a further 4 times. On Wednesday night, I got home from work and he was in a really bad way, not eating, listless, sensitive to light, he'd been drinking a lot and his wounds never stopped oozing pus. The vet agreed that due to his age and the fact he looked like he was in the process of kidney failure with the poison in his system, the kindest thing to do was to let him go. So our poor la'al mog is reunited with his 4th leg chasing mice over the bridge. Reunited with his best friend Betty bun. Good night smelly mog, we're going to miss you! frown Here he is, indulged in favourite past time in happier times.

I am sorry to hear this, I know how it feels, we lost Bobby when she was 14 and Ginge when he was 18.

I was told that at least they had a great life being looked after properly where they could have been homed with someone else not so caring. That is the only comfort such a sad time can bring.

[quote=Ekona]Some more pics of Lexi, now 9mths. She's discovered the Xmas tree!

Lexi bears an uncanny resemblance to our fella : Mr Jasper. He is approx. 7 or 8 years old now, but we are not sure as he was a rescue cat. The markings are very similar.

Sorry to hear that Boss. As others have said though, you made his last few years comfortable.

As our two have spent their whole lives at a rescue centre they've never seen a christmas tree before.

This is Lacey looking guilty at being seen.

Thanks for all your kind comments guys, we're in two minds whether to become moggy staff straight away, or allow things to settle down for a couple of months.

Assuming you have time off for Christmas, now might be a good time to let a rescue cat (or 2) get used to you

Our pair of cretins had the Christmas tree over on Monday night.

Bob (aka The Popham Idiot) was chasing Piglet, who doesn't like to be chased. She backed him into a corner under the tree and he bumped it with his bottom, whereupon it gracefully slid down the wall and came to a gentle stop, all my precious decorations swinging gently upon impact.

Turns out my husband hadn't locked the tree stand properly, so I can't entirely blame The Idiot.

First time in 25+ years that cats have had the tree down.

Our Sasha, taken yesterday, just wandered into the kitchen and started gobbing off at me about something smile

Is she an NFC? She's a very similar shape to our Magnus, especially the ruff and the tail.

Our two Bengals having fun exploring the study (and playing with the Newton's Cradle). Growing like weeds at the moment - only 16 weeks old in this picture.
