Do you have any of these enchanting animals.   If so please tell us all about them.   Mrs Bouquet

Can't believe no-one has replied to this...   :D

I (ahem) will admit to being the mad cat lady - everyone knows one  :D    I have 6 and a half that I am slave to.  I say half because back in October last year my Abbie decided she preferred the neighbours across the road to me; but then she's quite happy as an only cat.  I know where she is and I know she's safe so that's what matters.

The 6 at home are
Jamie - 12 a shorthair brindle tortie with the attitude that proves the tortitude - but she's gorgeous
Monty - 10 a semi long tuxedo boy who is such a love bug when it suits him
Harry - 8 year old black Norwegian Forest boy; lovable but definitely missing a few brain cells; he's so daft at times
Ava - 6 year old grey & white Norwegian Forsest Cat - a right royal madam and diva if ever there was one
Henry - 5 year old black and white Persian / Mog x  - adorable with the most girly squeak you've heard
and then my latest additon
Eli - 10 month old silver tabby Siberian who is still gaining confidence and getting braver every day

Next plan is to adopt some rescue battery hens

Life is good   :tongue2:

Ive still got my late Mums 2 moggies, 3 years on! I only brought them here to rehome them as she requested they went to a good home & a friend of a friend said she was interested, well actually she said shed have them but was in the process of moving & wanted to wait til shed moved. Then she got 2 kittens! I couldnt send them off to a rescue place so here they are.
Ollie whos about 12/13 ginger & Lily, 10/11, tortoiseshell & the noisiest cat alive. Theres not many days I dont threaten her with removing her voice box, I also think shes autistic.
They were both rescue cats when mum took them on , Lily is damaged, frightens herself half to death most days & Ollie is timid but not as bad.
 Theyve done well going from an old ladys house where it was always quiet & they slept all night & most of the day sleeping on the bed to not being allowed in the bedrooms or the lounges, Lily scratches everything, in the early days she scratched the seat pads on most of my dining chairs(leather) material boxes in my sewing room, the back of my leather sofa. She does now go outside more than shes ever done, neither of them have a litter tray & no one has left me a parcel in the house for ages.
So theyve settled at last & we manage but they could go tomorrow, hubby doesnt like them but wouldnt do them any harm but just tolerates them. I like animals but have got used to my house without them & dont like the hairs & the mess.
Were just about to take on our daughters 4 chickens at the plot
A woman's place is in her garden.

We have Cookie, who is a cross between a bearded collie and a standard poodle. She has had her outer coat cut off as she gets too hot (poodle side) also partly raw fed as trying to get weight on her (diet issues).
Also 5 hens, Sooty, Darwin, Sprout and 2 others.
Catfish and danios though I just feed them
Daughter has 2 roborovski  hamsters.

Weve got a bit of a gang here.

5 cats (used to be 6 but George moved out and ineith our neighbour, the butcher. Disloyal but not stupid!). Range from 2 to 13 years old and all just mogs but love them all the same.

Latest addition is our rescue Great Dane who is the most wonderful thing ever.

Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
