April Showers... Not a very nice weekend it has to be said, but at least it was warm if a little too wet for my liking! 

Sensibly a lot of customers off on their hols over the easter break - meaning busy times for my staff and me. We welcome Karen back from her annual winter break in the USA, tanned and smiling as ever! Kirsty had a few well deserved days off last week and Lucy is away on a placement this week so Little Ellie who is off school for the holidays is stepping into the breach.


I have been hearing very good reports of this new product. If your cat is already on the C/D diet this new formula may well prove to be more effective. Ask your vet for details.

Newbies - Pepe the Exotic Shorthair cutie only took 24 hours to come out of his shell and let us all know he loves cuddles and attention and oh yes - food...
Millie & Ricky, the 13 year old siblings adjusted to our routine like a walk in the park - taking their medication without stress - and generally being perfect guests.
Ringo & Robbie the Black and White brothers took 24 hours to work out they were not at the vets and are using their interior shelf as a look out post - just in case!
Toby has talked me into having four feeds a day now to make sure he keeps his condition. At eighteen years of age he deserves a little extra - although I have no idea where he's putting it all!
Merlin has really come out of his shell and is now running the family block - and he's another one who has succoured me into an extra meal time...
Longer stays - the Birmans are fine as are Tabitha, Mori, Honey & Shadow. Little Roly has caused us a little worry on and off but following vets advice and a change of feeding regime is now perfectly healthy and although occasionally a little off colour has been in good spirits throughout his stay.
Regulars - Happy to report all are fit and healthy. I have two Alfies and two Millies staying presently, along side a Bella and a Belle, a Baboushka and a Boots. Then there is Dillon, Envelope and George, Leo, Mable and Merlin, Tazzle, OJ and Tippy, Poppy, Gerry and Purrsephone, Spice, Teasle, Tiggy and Timmy, Toby and Lucy & Zoe the Ragdolls. If I have missed any one off my list it is unintentional and only due to my ageing memory...
Just off to do the evening rounds - enjoy your breaks. Aly
