My Wild Ones – Days out with SPD take a bit of managing.

Teaching a cat to use a cat flap… 

So last week, we had a cat flap installed, because certain cats (I’m looking sternly at Jasper, as I type this!) like to wake us up at horrible hours of the night to be let out of the house. I don’t want to have them outside at night, especially Layla, in the winter, when it’s […]

Cats with collars?

So recently we found out that our younger, slightly naughtier cat has been up to no good. Our next door neighbor has turtle doves. He bought them as a gift for a loved one and they are very pretty. They apparently cost a lot of money. They are pretty, and do make a lovely cooing […]
