This week..

Just a quick recap of anything significant that happened this week and things I'm looking forward to next week.

Sunday 3/10 – Called late in the afternoon to a found cat. When I got there it turned out to be a cat that escaped from the Cats Protection – Oh well – proves the system works.

Monday 4/10 – My normal monday pulling off the CP calls from their helpline. Mainly to do with help for neutering, a couple of people wanting to adopt and some 6 or so wanting to rehome their cats – emigrating seems to be a popular reason at the moment.

Wednesday 6/10 – Got a call just as I got home from work. A woman had found 3 abandoned kittens in a box. Phoned up a couple of people to see if anyone could take them in then went to collect them. Lovely things, about 4 weeks old , just on the point of eating solids though did guzzle at the bottle of kitten milk they were given. Not sure of the story of their appearance , but they're in good hands now!

Thursday 7/10 – Pilchard Run. Nothing athletic I hasten to reveal. I have made an acquaintance who works for Glenrycks and she is a good supplier of dented 'pilchards in tomato sauce' which we pick up for free. Borrowed the CP van and drove down to Henley-on-Thames – an old haunt of mine – and filled the van up. Good journey and managed to find a copy of Ben Eltons Dead Famous in a charity shop – so RESULT!
Got back to find a message from the CP who are trapping Ferals in a scrap yard near the new football ground, seems they trapped 2 too many so wanted to know whether I knew of any owners missing their cats in that area!

Friday 8/10 – Sent off fax for found cats to the Coventry evening telegraph.

So a fairly normal week, though not as many phonecalls as normal. Things (hopefully) are getting quieter now that the cold weather is hear.

A big highlight for next week is the Telegraph are coming round to take some photos for an article to appear in the Saturday Pet SOS column. Still hate have photos taken. Never mind – all good publicity!
A couple of CP home visits to fit in – must get details.

  1. Ben Elton's Dead Famous book – is that the one with a goldfish on the cover?

  2. Looking it up on Amazon I see that it is the one with goldfish on the cover (I'm not always good at remembering the titles). I'd be interested to know what you thought of it after you read it. I already have, but I won't say anything about it to spoil it for you. :-)
