We've built up such a history here now that a few years on sabbatical
hardly seems noticible nowadays. If you hadn't said anything, I would
have just thought, "Oh, it's Dewi."

I'm sorry to hear about Monty and Tink and Mango. I did like your
kitty stories. You might remember that I put Tink down as a "kind
cat" in a cat superlatives list I posted a few years ago.

Hi all,

It's been a long time since I read this ng. I've notice many new people
and many people who are still around from when I was a regular
contributor to RPCA.

For those who don't remember me and/or don't know me, I am the proud
human of 9 cats. Which I now realise is an insane number. However they
are here to stay and I love them to bits. I'm from Australia and use to
be a RPCA addict.

So things have changed a bit for me. I moved to Brisbane (from
Armidale) in January with my hubby (Neil) and my crazy cats (and rats).

Since I last posted, two of my original cats have died; Monty from
feline AIDS and Tink died recently and very suddenly at the vets when
she was under anesthetic (she went in for an x-ray!). Mango went
missing in 2003 (I may have posted about this). This was a stressful
and sad time (as you can imagine) and still makes me feel teary and
guilty.

Since Mango, the cats have been confined to large enclosures, and have
access to part of the house. The cat enclosure is a work in progress,
with extensions, walkways and furniture planned for when my DH gets
leave and when the budget allows. We've worked out how to make
relatively cost effective cat enclosures using orchard netting.

Anyway I look forward to reading more posts.

Cheers,
Dewi.

Welcome back, Dewi!

Ha ha, Tink, kind! She was the cheekiest rat bag who caused me no
amount of stress. She had the personality of a rebellious teenager.
Holidays cut short because of her dissapearing; late nights stressing
and teary as she refused to come back for dinner (knowing full well
that she would be showered with hugs and kisses when she sauntered in
at 3am). Having said that, when she died there was a bigger sense of
loss as she was such a character. Actually, to be honest, she had
finally mellowed in her middle age.

However I must have missed that post of cat superlatives as I don't
actually remember it!

Dewi.

because she's so curious, and that's because she's smart! Too smart for

Hi all,

It's been a long time since I read this ng. I've notice many new
people and many people who are still around from when I was a
regular contributor to RPCA.

For those who don't remember me and/or don't know me, I am the proud
human of 9 cats. Which I now realise is an insane number. However
they are here to stay and I love them to bits. I'm from Australia
and use to be a RPCA addict.


I don't know if you were still posting when I started reading RPCA.
Right now I'm not keeping on top of all the posts here, but I do try
to read at least the first post in a thread, even if I don't respond
to everything.

I have a female cat named Oscar who drove me crazy recently when her
paw was injured and I had to medicate her and keep her confined to the
bedroom. She seems very well now, though, and isn't overgrooming her
paw anymore (which is what caused all the damage, licking because her
paw was irritated).

Hope to see further posts from you.

Good additions! In my head, this list is pretty different now.

Genius cats:


Smudge, if I may say so myself. (OK, you all might think she's a bit

because she's so curious, and that's because she's smart! Too smart for

She definitely doesn't sound dumb. She's one of those that have
enough smarts to be dangerous.

Bonded cats:
J. Wermont's Roxy and Smudge


Sadly, not any more. Roxy has decided that she wants to imitate Licky
and be mean and annoying to Smudge. So they're not really pals anymore.


That's too bad. Is that why Roxy likes going out these days?

Visitor loving cats:

Both Roxy and Smudge


I wish I could have seen for myself.

Obligatory trip report: I was in San Francisco on business last week,
and Joyce and I had some nice conversations over the phone, but I had
a flight back, and we weren't able to coordinate. We'll try again
some other day!

Fearless cats:
J. Wermont's Roxy


Hmm... I don't know about fearless. She will stare down a vacuum cleaner,
which is pretty brave. But she's definitely not in a class with Ollie!


You know why she's in this category? It's because she likes to be
centrifuged.

Yeah. She's smart, combined with extremely willful. When she wants
something, she will not stop until she's either manipulated the handy
nearby human to do it for her, or figured it out for herself!

Smudge is the indoor/outdoor cat, and I'm sure it doesn't hurt. But she's
always had a longing for the outdoors, even before I adopted Roxy (back in
1998). She used to escape out the front door every chance she got. One
reason I adopted Roxy was in the hope that if she wasn't so lonely inside,
she might not care about going out. And she did get less lonely, which was
nice, but still wanted to go out. It's just in her genes, apparently. Roxy
and Licky don't seem to care about the Out at all.

LOL!!! Does that make her fearless, or just weird?

Thanks Tak, that made me smile and tear up. There are so many lost
friends in there and so many memories as well. Please keep this one,
but maybe make an updated one as well. Please?
