    You have been at the cats protection since February 2011, you were so nervous no one saw you properly for 6 months, except me of course. I couldnt resist looking in your little box bed and i loved you as soon as i saw you. I didnt bring you home straight away as i just didnt know if i could cope with another, or if you would be able to settle here. But yesterday i bit the bullet and bought you home and i am pretty glad i did. You may have had a wee under the bed but that is fine, i know you have not been with a dog before and coming face to face with frey on the stairs last night was abit unexpected as i thought you were shut in your safe room. You hid for a while but i had to get you out, you were very worried about the wee you did but its easy to clean. I popped you on the bed whilst cleaning up and thought you would run off somewhere, how wrong was i?? That was at 1 o'clock this morning and you have only moved off the bed to have some biccie licks. I know you are an older lady and will always be on you kidney medication but i have never met a cat like you, i put your tablet on the floor next to you and you picked it up and ate it :eek: You already have a special place in my heart along with my other babies, so you are very very welcome to stay with us for as long as you want and i will be you happy doting slave until the day you leave us

    Oh flippin' heck tasha, you made me smudge my mascara!
    She is lovely and 11 is not old at all. Is she on Fortekor for her kidneys? Hopefully you will be able to get a prescription and buy it cheaply online. Please tell us more about her!

    Ohhh no she has some life in her, not old at all :D she was on fortekor but has been put on something new called benefortin.

    Well she was in the centre a few years ago and was adopted out to an older lady, unfortuantly this ladys grandchildren (for want of a better word) terrorized her and she ended up getting a little claw happy (as you would :mad: ) and she was bought back. She is really really nervous and does have a habit of weeing if she is startled but that doesnt bother me in the slightest :)

    I am sure you are familiar with Tanya's wonderful CRF site, simply the best resource to help learn all about kidney issues.
    Aww she does sound like a nervous nellie the poor little thing.

    Apparently she has been like that since she was with the 'grandkids' She is also very prone to urinary tract infections, they trigger when she is stressed :(
