    I don't have any cats, but i keep finding them in the house... :o

    Smudge and Megan often make a surprise appearance at the top of the stairs, having stole in when one of the doors were open. Sacres the bejeezus out of me, and them!

    I was sitting on the floor with Gingerbits on my lap, and it was a hot evening so the front doors were open. All of a sudden, a black cat peeped round the corner of the door, and Bits took off at 100mph, despite being old and arthritic...

    Speaking of holes in legs, I wish the Scottish midgie was vegetarian!

    We were camping in East Lothian this weekend and I've been bitten all over... It's weird 'cos I've never been bothered by them before but something has eaten buggery out of my legs, arms, scalp and body!

    It's all Scarlet's fault for making us go for a late-night walk on the beach without full haz-mat protective clothing!

    Yes she my expen$ive cat.

    When she was a wee little thing, she had swallowed a bit of stuffing from some pillow or something and she got rather lethargic and stopped eating. I went to one of the vet places and eventually spent $1200 (600 pounds). They wanted me to admit her to the animal hospital (more $). I decided to get a second opinion at a well thought of cat hospital and the doctor there said she had something blocking her intestine. He suggested that I hand-feed her until it passed - which it did after about 5 days of feeding her soupy cat food through a syringe (no needle of course!) and several transdermal re-hydrations. Now she's a chubby little thing. But I guess after all that (she nearly died) shes allowed. :)

    Water through the skin? That's what it sounds like. If you lived here, Jonny, at the moment you could just've put her out in the garden...! I love the rain...but even I think it's a bit much! :)

    Hmm..maybe transdermal was the wrong word..sounded cool though!. They inject saline into the haunches above her shoulder just below the skin and it slowly absorbs into her system. It looks like a wobbly bubble untilk it absorbs (1 or 2 hours)

    CC: Yah I noticed it was raining a lot (at least at Hencam HQ).

    That's a bit like my fat-cat (Emmett). She had 4 kittens when she was about a year and a half, got a womb infection so wasn't feeding them (which we didn't realise - they were suckling but not enough to stimulate milk). 2 died, we hand fed the others but they didn't survive either. Vet decided to neuter her in case it was a genetic problem and not down to the lack of food. Total cost of about £250 and all we had to show was 4 dead kittens and a poorly cat. She over-ate after that, gained loads of weight and just refuses to diet!!

    My kitty Winnie had to be hydrated that way. It was amazing to watch my sick kitty revive with an injection of water. I can't remember the term either... Interdermal. No. Hmmmm. Ollie do you know it now?

    ooohhhh. Erm jonny , yknow because youre a boffin and stuff , can you find out the answer to this random maths question :::

    Flush — The flush contains any five of the thirteen ranks, all of which belong to one of the four suits, minus the 40 straight flushes. Thus, the total number of flushes is: 24

    On the formula I need to replace the variables 13 with 15, the number 4 with 3, & the 40 with 36 ....and get the new answer.

    Hi All-I haven't been on in quite a while - summer, life, chickens and my daughter's upcoming wedding have kept me away...Our chicks are doing great! We had to get rid of 3 roosters so we now have 1 roo and 12 chickens! We had a few mean roo's that picked on the younger chicks. We have been getting 4-5 eggs a day - all colors...green, beige and dark brown. They are yummy! Chicks are still young and some haven't started laying yet. Should start within the next 2 weeks. We love our chickens. We sit in the barnyard every night and just hang with them. For the newbies - we live outside of Rochester, NY on an old apple farm with a little land. We have 4 pygmy goats, 1 mini horse and 2 dogs...plus our chickens! We are city folk enjoying the country life...Farm living is the life for me!

    Hi there, Wendy from Wellington, :chicken:New Zealand here - love the hencam, my husband thinks I am crazy, but it is so cute to see them (not) sleeping in the night while it is daytime here! We have four bantams, 8 months old and get 4 gorgeous eggs a day, one of which is blue and one green. About to put some Araucana eggs under our broody bantam - she is determined to sit. Hmm. See you!

    Welcome people, howdy neighbor Wendy.... could you keep the music down, haha. I have a couple of friends visiting NZ at the moment, I hope you are personally looking after them...
    Oh, and you are definitely not crazy. One of my friends who thought I was crazy, has just build a coop and ordered some brand new chickens for it. I would like to think I had some influence in that. Have fun.

    CC, i *think* Araucana is a pretty rare breed of chicken. If i'm thinking of the right breed you can get some that are pretty crazy-looking! They have feathers that stick out from the side of their heads just behind their ear lobes, almost look like antlers! :D

    Don't know if all Araucanas are like that or if that's a particular type though...

    Hi Mary :D No one else on the forum represents Indiana - so (no pressure) its up to you! I have a friend who yearns for a French Bulldog. Tell us more. What are your dog's names? Are you able to post their pictures? (Red set up a thread awhile ago called *Post Your Pics* - I THINK that's what its called.)

    A girl I used to work with (one of the nicest people in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD by the way - hi Veronica, not that you'll read this!) wants a French Bulldog too.

    And I see a lady who is disabled and has one of those motorised scooters who has what I assume is a mini poodle. I've seen her around for years but her dog is still tiny (handbag dog!) and just so sweet! YES, post pictures!!!!!!

    Hi Wendy! Post pictures of your hens too. My hubby and sons can't understand the attraction of hencam either - I don't even have chickens! - but I've made friends with folk on here and they're all as mad as a box of frogs (hmmm, perhaps that confirms the 'crazy' tag!)

    :sheep:Kateb: Since I've only been there 3 days, it's probably too soon to start that! Maybe later though . . .
    French Bulldogs are nice but they are notorious for health problems. We adore ours but would not get another. She nearly died two different times, and we've spent a fortune keeping her with us. You can see her picture on Dogster.com - her name is Cookie. You will find our poodle on Dogoftheday.com under the date Nov. 8, 2002. His name is Percy and he's a pistol :slingshot:

    Aw that's sad about your French Bulldog. Is she okay now, health-wise? Percy is a cute little thing, that's a great photo of him! I couldn't work out how to find a photo of Cookie on dogster.com, probably just me being stupid, any tips? :-\

    I found Percy but not Cookie too. Wish I'd read your post Red before I spent 15 mins thinking I was thick and wasn't looking in the right place! I bet you'd spend another fortune on her if you had to wouldn't you!
