According to this learned study of Felix Catus, cat owners - and I rather doubt that any cats are 'owned' - I think I may be categorized as option 3, 'Tolerant Guardian'.

Meanwhile, whatever Pumpkin has been up to outside has led to limping with front left paw held up, and a lot of paw licking. I don't see any claw damage, one pad looks a bit sore. If there is no improvement by Monday a vet visit will be impending.

Me too. Ginger George. He jumped off the neighbors garage roof and dislocated his hip. My daughter was only little and she would push him around in her little dolls pram. He was a big guy but very sweet natured.

I have new babies and a mumma. I'll get photos sorted and the tale that goes with them. My other kids have either been rehomed or are in the rehoming centres.

Two weeks ago I was delivered three females and seven kittens. All allegedly from the same household. Two females were the mums, one had two and one had five. I was shown the two but only one mum was showing any interest in the kids. The other mum ignored them or walked away as soon as any of the bubs got close. I got them home and settled in but...... the mum who was ignoring the kids decided she wasn't happy and tried to attack one of the mums from the previous litter who were in the room next door.

Whilst I had my back to the cat (I called her Alaska) she was getting angry, my daughter was trying to coax her away from the door. Suddenly she freaked (Alaska not daughter), spun round and attacked the back of my head. I screamed, daughter managed to get her off me but I had about eight puncture wounds on my head and neck. One bad enough to have to be glued shut. I had someone come round and collect the previous litters mums, put the third female in their room and left everyone to settle in.

Went back later to feed only to find a floor full of fur and blood smears. Alaska had attacked the other mum. Whilst I was cleaning up, daughter was nursing kittens and Alaska tried again to get Lotus (the other mum). More fur! Managed to get Alaska into a carrier and she spent the night in daughter's shower. Got her moved on the next day along with the single female, leaving me with this lot. Lotus has decided all seven kids are hers, she's very affectionate and has the sweetest nature.
My photo editing app isn't working so lots of big photos but they're kittens so who cares.... Apologies for the blur. Getting kittens to sit still and pose with eyes open is very entertaining but difficult.

Ok so the photo of Raisin is stunning!

Ouch! Too bad about the psycho cat attack and I hope you heal up quickly. They're all cute, and making them pose is, well, like herding cats.
