17/12/10 I love duvet

Dad's still ill and it's so ace because I haven't had to go out for days, except for the toilet but that's only because someone's shut the bathroom door so I can't use the shower tray as normal. Ain't no way never you'll catch me using one of those litter trays, what an odd concept!

Chris and Becca took over from Emma's morning shift in the charity shop at lunchtime today because Vivienne is away. It's their first time having a go on the till so I hope they survived ok. Meanwhile the family of four kittens left this afternoon, wow that'll be a fun household, here's one of the babies asking for lunch about half an hour after breakfast this morning:

16/12/10 Scully's pleased

Yesterday Gareth came to visit from Pets Corner in Wymondham with loads of gifts for us. One of the boxes of goodies was unpacked this morning and Scully's claimed it as her own, she's well happy as she thinks it's the perfect height for springing out of when other cats walk past. I bet she'll give Howard a few surprises...

15/12/10 Perry's trying to get back in!

But where is Mable this morning? No one's seen her. Last night at bedtime she was in 1A in a bed on the shelf but this morning she's nowhere to be seen. Because it's so cold and everymoggy needs to keep their weight up there's food everywhere at the moment so I'm sure Mable will still find her way to a dinner. I hope it doesn't take ages for her to show face to the humans again, they get so ridiculously worried.

Perry is coping with it ok though, he's exploring everywhere and into everything – perhaps in a bid to get back into his old bedroom! I hope being free helps him find his own home, he just needs to learn to pester visitors the second they arrive and I'm sure someone will fall for him, he's very handsome.

Mum went off to the vets today with millions of cats and kits for vaccinations, normally dad goes too but he's not well. It was hard work but I've stayed in bed all day to look after him and so's Bethany, if he's ill tomorrow still then sadly I might have to spend another whole day in bed. Tough but someone has to.

14/12/10 Perry and Mable go free

It's a scary thing to let cats out free on site here, as you never know how they're going to take it. Some cats love it straight away and soon work out their new routines and hang-outs, others go walkabout only to return after a few weeks and some just scuttle around terrified, who knows what Perry and Mable are going to get up to.

I've never met them but I hear Perry's a very confident boy so I'm sure he'll be fine, I'll be keeping my paws crossed for scaredy Mable myself. Either way I know she'll love the freedom eventually.

Benji's still confused by his new cage...

Millie's had a huge treat this morning, heaven only knows why she deserves it. She's like queen of the manor sitting in her cardboard box over the boiler so why she's needy I'm not sure. Anyway, Beryl and her daughter came over from City Boats in Norwich with loads of cool pressies for Mills. They unwrapped her new bed for her and she has gladly swapped it for her old cardboard box and cushion. She's also gloating about her new collar as she had been getting teased a bit for her old tatty one. She still has a present to open on Christmas Day too!

We've been giving gifts too apparently, lots of extra food has gone out to feral colonies we support especially because of the cold weather. Plus we're giving out a food parcel to a lady who is struggling to cope and has ten cats, poor lady. Someone is coming to collect it for her in the morning and I hope it helps see her through and keep her with her feline family. Christmas seems to be a very sad and lonely time for lots of humans and cats alike and we must all do what we can.

13/12/10 Baby Benji's moved out

For weeks mum's been promising that, as soon as there's room in the centre, Benji will move out of our living room. Only whenever room's come up there's been another cat or kitten more needy and he gets left waiting, poor boy. He was the surviving kitten of the litter who were orphaned then poisoned with cow's milk.

Well today he's finally moved, into a cage, which is a shock to his little system but puts him on the road to a new home forever. We've got a huge chunk of space back at home too which is the best bit!

The last four of the Stanton ferals have been taken home today. It's been the first break in weather for ages to coincide with enough time to get them caught up and home. Apparently they scuttled out of their carrier while office staff watched. The group are now looking really good but it sounds like they were hit hard by the badly timed snow. One of the group is missing and he was last seen with a snotty nose so they are not sure if he's survived sadly.

Goods news from the ferals in ICU: the boy who Vicky found, named Victor, is now letting people pick him up and his purring and full speed! What a turn around!
