Lets Call Him Sirius !!!

Now that our new kitten has had time to settle in, and we have all  had time to get to know each other better - and  after much careful consideration, and debate we have decided to call him Sirius (of Sirius Black - Harry Potter fame) - primarily because of his colour, but also because he is a bit of a scallyway. Sirius and Oscar have become buddies - and whilst they are still a little cautious … [Read more...]

Introducing Nicholas von Whiskas

Well at least that is his RSPCA name.... It is highly unlikely that it will stick though, we will give him a week or two to settle in and see what names id most appropriate. Since Sheldon's latest "escape" (over two weeks ago) we have not seen or heard of him at all... So.... because Oscar is now a little lonely  (OK so maybe Jamie and I have some ulterior motives too), we decided to get a new … [Read more...]

The last of Sheldon ??

Well, I think that we have finally seen they last of Sheldon. This morning we were passing Sheldon's drain so thought we would check it out... no sign, but we went around the corner to the house he has been "visiting", rattled his tin... and sure enough, after a few minutes, plodding on up the driveway came Sheldon...  He  was none the worse for wear (after over two weeks away) and in fact … [Read more...]

Sheldon Update

Well... as suspected Sheldon's nomadic behaviour is escalating... he has wandered of twice this week already. He disappeared straight after dinner on Wednesday night, and Thursday morning - on the off chance - we checked out Meadowlands Rd... I rattled his tin, and if he was there at all,  expected to hear him before we saw him so was a bit surprised to see a head pop up out of a drain just … [Read more...]

Sheldon Returns

So... after another 6 days Sheldon has been found again.  We got a call this evening that he had wandered into the back yard of a family just off Meadowlands Rd... a mere 100 meters from where he was found last time. It appears that he has found a new "favourite spot", so with a bit of luck the next time he wanders off we will know where to look. In anticipation of of ongoing wanderings, I … [Read more...]

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...]

Things that go Bump in the night…

Well it's more of a scratch/scrape really than a bump... and it doesn't just happen in the night.... but we seem to have some uninvited "guests" scurrying around in the walls. We've not seen any other evidence, just a variety of scratching and scraping sounds emanating from the walls - at various times and locations. We suspect Rats because the noise is too much for mice... and probably not … [Read more...]

The Sheldon Saga continues….

Well... He is back.... (after 6 days).. and looking as healthy and happy as ever.... We went out for just an hour... to discover 3 voice messages on the answer machine when we got back....  Message 1 : from mum, saying that she had found Sheldon at her place... what the !!! 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...]
