A little about Oscar

Oscar, our second cat, was procured after Sheldon had disappeared for a few months, and we'd decided that we may not see him again. Oscar was a stand out from the other cats when we spotted him at the RSPCA,  and he quickly warmed to the idea of being a lovely ball of fluff.  However, only a month or two after we got Oscar, Sheldon was found and brought back to us (oh the wonders of … [Read more...]

Sheldon up to his old tricks (with a twist)

For the last week or so, Sheldon has been disappearing promptly after breakfast and re-appearing several hours later. I've seen him wander across the (busy) road, but he always reappears in plenty of time for dinner. For the last few nights he has also been disappearing after dinner... and one night Jamie found him wandering a few hundred meters up the road... We've been closing the front door … [Read more...]

Message 2 : (left earlier) from someone saying they had Googled the number on Sheldons tag, had found our (old) address … [Read more...]

A little about Sheldon

Sheldon is a wanderer. He is our 2 year old (??) tabby cat and makes up half of our pet menagerie (his "brother" Oscar will  no doubt get his own featured post at some stage). You may have already guessed, but he was named after the "Big Bang Theory's" Sheldon Cooper character... because he was long and thin... and VERY VERY smart, and although our Sheldon is much "friendlier" than … [Read more...]
