Hi everybody.

Great to be here! I really love animals and have two cats of my own Jet and Gizmo, both from Cat Protection, they do brilliant work.

What animals do you have?

Hi SM
It's great to see you on the forum. Cats protection do a brilliant job, we have a cat called Poppy, and a Welsh Border Collie called Misty she was from an animal rescue center she was about 11Months old when we got her, and already had three owners, and been sent back each time. She is now 11Yrs old

Morning LW, sounds like quite a tribe you've got there. It's cloudy here in North Wales, and yesterday it rained most of the day, but we cant complain it's the first time we have had rain apart from one shower at night, for weeks, and the gardens, and fields could really do with the water

I'm hoping to go and see my new little Kitten Splodge today, I have a few more weeks before he arrives but would love to go and have a cuddle with him this morning, so maybe I will invite myself for coffee at my sisters and go have a cuddle, and take some more pictures. if I get to see him I will post some pictures on site today, i bet he has grown.
Hope everyones having a good weekend and you have more sunshine than we have in West sussex.

Well hello and i apologise for my absence but i have been a bit busy with my cop thing, WS messaged me about this forum and it is brilliant - well done. i love the range of animals on here.

I've still got 6 cats, a rabbit and a pond fish - not that i get to enjoy them so much these days.

The weather is very different over here at the moment, Autumn has struck and it is cold and wet, which is fine by me.

lovely to see you all on here

Minty, TTM, tictac thingy

Hi TTM aka Minty

Glad you are here, shame that you aren't getting to see all your cats, rabbits and fish as much as you'd like, but hope the cop thing is going well.

i've not done this bit so - we have 2 dogs, one Rhodesian Ridgeback called Penny, one retired rescue Greyhound called Penny. They are of course totally perfect! We have tropical fish (well Pete has) about 40 and some goldfish outside and 9 black welsh mountain sheep. I think that's it!

We dont have sunshine today - in fact it's positively cold

Mmmm was having problems posting at first but just did a 'testing testing' and that's gone through ok - so I'll just edit this message and post again. I've typed the same message about 3 times and each time I tried to post I got an error, hopefully all is in order now Very Happy

Hello, good to find you all - I was wondering where everyone had gone but now I've found you Very Happy

Just to add my bit as everyone else has, I'm daft about animals. Four legged and furry, two legged and feathered, I love them all Cool Got one dog, a Boxer called Ali who is 12 this year, quite old for a Boxer. She is half mine and half my mum & dads, we bought her when I was still at home. As hubbie (Ian) and I work all day she stays with my parents as mum is retired.

Good morning everyone

I hope you are all having a good weekend, we ended up with rain overnight but it's looking better now which is good as we thought we'd have a b-b-q tonight.

The bluebells are now finally out properly (only 3 weeks late) and they look beautiful. I need to take some photos today. We had a couple of ducks with their 9 chicks (sadly i think no longer 9) a few days ago. I hope they are now safe on the river, they aren't always the best with where they nest and where they decide to take their chicks!

Whatever you are all up to today i hope you have a fun time.

Hi Everyone,

It is cloudy here in part with intervals of sunshine, but neighbours have already lit bbqs as I can smell yummy food that is making me hungry.

Minty- Hope things are going well with your cop thing. You will be happy to see your animals. I have never had a rabbit and Im sure takes some looking after. Any pictures?

Doogs - Boxers are lovely dogs and I hope she is doing ok.

Lai - Isnt having 2 dogs called Penny a bit confusing? My neighbours have beaten you to the bbqs today I think. I love walking through the woods and seeing loads of bluebells open, it sounds beautiful were you are. Aaaah and the Ducks and little ones, I hope the chicks did make it, but unfortunately thats life Sad

I hope whatever everyone is doing today it is peaceful!

Afternoon everyone Very Happy

Glad you managed to get posting Doogs, hopefully you have no more problems and you can chat away to us all.

Minty, would love to hear how the new job is going, are you still at the Acadamy? I should imagine Autumn is a relief from the hot Summer you had and much better for your fish and the pond.

I hope the chicks are all ok Lai, lets hope they stay safe on the river out of harms way

Everyone talking about BBQ's......Oooo makes me hungry Very Happy we've got a pretty dull day here, so went out spending instead, just brought a new computer table.....trouble is it needs building What a Face lets hope the instructions are simple Very Happy

I hope your weekend has been a good one, mines about to explode into a bout of housework....how exciting.

Hi Everyone!!!

I've got a gorgeous little dog called Millie, she's 3 and a half and a staffy cross yorkie!! And what makes it more shocking is the mum is the yorkie!! She gets to see her Mummy and Daddy lots as they are my brother's dogs and live just round the corner.

I need a bit of advice though, it appears I have a rat in the garden ... well not appears ... i do! I've seen it with my own eyes. Its living in the area of the garden we haven't got round to weeding yet. My boss says poison it, but i can't do that. One i would get to upset, two I have a dog, 3 i get lots of cats in the garden and 4 I get lots of birds in the garden. Should I just set up humane traps? I have no idea why Roland chose my garden with a terrier dog in it and cats galore passing though.

That's not an easy one Anne-Marie. Poison isn't really an option with pets around. I'm not sure about humane traps, we once tried them with mice in the house - the mice were too smart!

Perhaps Roland could become part of your 'extended family' unless he is causing a problem. What a Face

OH heck Lai, now you've given him a name its almost like Roland has to stay, trouble is usually where there is one rat there is usually more....tough one Anne-Marie, if it was just Roland and he didnt have a lady friend or kids I would let him stay but with the prospect of an extended family I would try humane traps and relocate them to a big field somewhere that had lots of bushes and places they could make a new home. I certainly wouldn't poison him, thats too awful and then there is Millie and her mum and dad and the neighbourhood cats and the birds to consider.....tough call, let us know what you decide to do.

I thought putting my computer table together tonight was a tough call but I think yours is tougher .

I would have thought AM, that Ratty would be very wary of coming into your garden if there's your Dog, and quite a few Cats around,be'cause Cats, and Dogs will go after Rats. If he's only appeared recently, I would wait a while, because he might just go on his own

I've not seen roland since yesterday lunch time. He has only recently appeared so I think I'm going to do as WS and see if he goes by himself. I've taken down the bird seed and swept up what was on teh floor. Poor birdies Sad





The weather is gorgeous here too! Took Millie out this morning for a run in the field. Just as we were leaving she got attacked by another dog Sad it was horrible as she was screaming and yelping. She's got a tiny puncture wound in her ear. I thought it was a thousand times worse as there was so much blood! Ewwww! She was very shaky afterwards and very clingy. Luckily I only work a few minutes from where I live so I've been able to go and check on her.

Off to the Lake again tonight with my camera! Saw so much yesterday and was so cross I didn't have it! I bet I don't see anything today!! So many baby geese Very Happy SM if you are up there, the lake to the left of the visitors centre had two sets of baby geese, one family of about 12 babies and another one of about 8.

WS, I will certainly be enjoying the sunshine for everyone this weekend!

Great shots of Roland Anne-Marie - i think WS is right, see if he leaves of his own accord. I am not sure about these humane traps.

Enjoy the lake later and look forward to some photos flower
