Dave has been able to return to his “Gaff” and as a reward for giving up his pen to the 8 emergency’s he has a new scratch post and loves it, I think he’s quite happy to be back in his new home and wont be long until he is back into his regular walks around the garden 

Update on Dave 21/2/14

Dave has yet again had to give up his pen to an emergency intake of 9 cats from Telford, the council told the owner she must re-home 9 of her 12 cats, we took in 8 as she managed to re-home one but one was heavily pregnant and gave birth on 5th Feb, Dave moved out of his pen on 25th Jan 2014 and as no interest in the 5 we have left in there he is still in a normal rescue pen, he was a bit disgruntled to begin with but has settled well and think he likes the company of the other cats either side of him, hopefully it won’t be long before he can go back into his pen, as a treat for him giving up his pen to help his fellow felines we have a nice new lrg scratch post for him when he goes back, he is such a good lad and we all love him 🙂  

Update on Dave 12/11/13

Dave bless him has had his booster and blood test and passed with flying colours, his blood test showed he is on the right dosage of medication and also had a thorough health check while having his booster jabs, his breathing is fine still so we will just wait for next summer to see what happens, during the winter months Dave does not go out for walks around the garden as too cold and wet, I bet he can’t wait for spring/summer but then thinking about it niether can I haha

Latest update on Dave

Dave’s breathing has been very noisy of late, this happened about a year ago but x rays showed nothing abnormal.  I took him back to the vets as he sounded like he was struggling to breath, poor lad, they now think he is suffering with Asthma and allergy related (like hayfever to us) he had a steriod jab that should of lasted 24hrs but unfortunately it didn’t and during the night the stress of him not being able to breath made him have a fit, I took him back to the vets the next day and they gave him a longer lasting steriod jab which seems to have done the trick, looks like in the summer months Dave will need steriod injections to keep his hayfever at bay.  He is due his yearly booster vaccination very soon and we will also have a blood test done to make sure he is still on the right dosage for his epilepsy medication. He is such a lovely boy, watch this space!!

Myself and one of our volunteers Barbara and Dave went to St Peters Infant School Wem on Monday to give a talk on rescue, Dave enjoyed it very much and loved the fuss and attention, the children were lovely and Dave was on his best behavior……bless him

He stayed on his harness and lead

There were 60 children and Dave was not fazed at all, he loved walking over there tables

Dave’s Garden walks

Dave is really into his walks around the garden and now cry’s to go out when I give him his medicine in the morning but he has to wait until I come home from work as I just don’t have time first thing in the morning, he has not been able to go out today due to the bad weather but hopefully it will pick up soon and he can go back to enjoying the garden and trying to climb trees!!!!  more pics to follow asap 

6/5/13 Update on “Dave”

6/5/13 Dave’s first walk around the garden this year and what a gorgeous day, he really enjoyed it and when I put him back in his pen he cried so I had to take him out for more walkies, he met my Rosie which she was not impressed and ran away, Billy hissed at him but Murphey and Dave sniffed nose to nose and Murphy came on the walk too, he is now curled up on his mat quite content and snoozing. He is keeping very well at the moment so long may that continue 🙂

Dave moves back to his “Gaff”

alt

Dave has moved back into his “Gaff” and is very pleased about it, there are only 3 left of the 8 emergency’s we had in so they have been moved into the outside pen that Dave was in.

alt

Dave has a new toy a Christmas crinkle tunnel, he seems to like it

alt

Bless him he seems to like his new toy and back to much more room

Dave loves you to play with him and since his dental seems very relaxed and pain free, as you can see Dave has never managed to use the cat flap so we wedge it open with a hook and elastic bands, this is so he keeps nice and toasty in his sleeping area, he is such a spoilt boy but rightly so!!!
