Some of you may remember Cookie. She was one of six kittens which we helped rescue after being they had been left in a box in a field. Cookie was then homed to Sue who is one of our volunteers. Looking at this picture which Sue has sent to me she has grown into a beautiful cat and really knows how to pose for the camera 😻

Some of you may remember Franky who had been at SFHFC for a few years before he was fostered just before Christmas. I’m pleased to say he really has settled in brilliantly and is well and truly spoilt. He has recently had a secondary infection in his mouth which, following a visit to see our resident vet he has had a course of antibiotics for, so paws crossed this will now improve.

Here it looks like he had been getting up to mischief with the bed sheets lol 😻.

This is the photo of Zoe that I was trying to capture before Joy had decided to photobomb as can be seen in earlier posts from today. 

Goodnight everybody πŸ±πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

One of our volunteers Anne-Marie has just sent this picture to me of Solomon. He is one of our heaviest residents weighing over 6kg and here he has chosen the smallest cat perch at the hospice 😻.

I think this is one of my favourite #photobomb ‘s that I’ve taken. I was simply trying to capture a lovely shot of Zoe who was comfy in one of the luxury furry cat beds which have been bought for us off our Amazon wish list…..when all of a sudden Joy popped up right in font of the camera and stuck her tongue out lol πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

Yesterday it was lovely to meet Kaz at the hospice. Some of you may recognise Kaz as the lovely lady who fostered Rocky last year. Earlier this year Kaz suffered the sadness of losing Rocky after He had become ill and we had to make the heartbreaking decision to let him go.

It was nice to catch up with her and so lovely to see Kaz enjoying some feline fuss again. As soon as Kaz sat down Zak made himself comfortable on her knee, Joy sat down beside her waiting for her moment to move in, while Ace chilled on the new cat-steps (which we have recently kindly had donated) and enjoyed some nice head-rubs.

Zak may be getting on in years (we think about 16), but he is still the ‘Top Cat’ at SFHFC 😻.

Tonight I took Pendle and Bobby to the vets for a check up. 

Pendle has been having rather a snotty nose recently. Since our last home vet visit this has got worst so we thought it best to get him checked over. Thankfully it doesn’t appear that there is any underlying problem but it was decided to put him on a course of antibiotics as the likelihood is it’s an infection. Some of you may know that Pendle is our longest standing resident after he came here back in 1996.

Bobby has recently been having some sneezing bouts and as he has some ongoing issues with his breathing we thought it best to get him checked over. Again hopefully this is nothing more than an infection. In Bobby’s case he has had an antibiotic injection as he is not the easiest of our residents to medicate and can quickly become very suspicious and a bit scared of us humans if he thinks that we are up to something, so for him this is the best way to medicate when possible. 

As always paws crossed that they will both now improve πŸ±πŸ™πŸ±
