    What time? :lol: :lol:

    Just kidding, there is usually someone around, if I wake I sometimes come on and have a snoop.

    Do you have telephone numbers of people you can call for advice ? Or a website (other than this one) where you could get quick advice if needed, not that you will need it!?!

    You can call me if you want, my husband is nocturnal and can be forewarned to wake me for any worried new breeders. PM for phone number if you want it.

    Sorry - I was in the bath (totally unreliable)!!

    Yes, phone Liz she has been doing this for years, I would have been on an unnecessary trip to Vet had Liz not said "this is not an emergency". Some times you just need people to confirm what you are already thinking etc.

    I will try to wake up a few times also but may sleep through (that happens sometimes) and will keep laptop open and ready to use.

    Rule Number 1: A Watched Cat Never Boils! (well, pops.... you know what I mean!

    That's great of you Liz... it's difficult when you don't have a mentor to call as I did - although my first girl always had hers during the day when everyone was at work!

    Well, I'm in a better position to do so than most - first I don't have to get up to go to work in the morning, second I have a husband who is almost totally nocturnal. It doubles as a business number but there are only two of us here.
