Apologies James I thought I had put it in shore leave, must have been still suffering the shock of the crash ten minutes earlier.

 

Great shot Paul. I did not get that opportunity, Charlie had scattered because he knew he had misbehaved.

The problem seems to arise with language Charlie doesn't seem too interested in learning English, so communication is a bit challenging. Charlie is likely wondering why I don't speak his tongue as well.  So we are at an impasse.

Therein lies the difficulty.

So what’s the matter Michael; cat got your tongue? 😉😄

 

Of course, you do realise that while dogs have masters, cats have staff!

Despite my joking to the contrary, I actually like cats a lot, but I can never have one of my own due to allergies (even tried the supposedly hypoallergenic kind -- no joy). When we lived in the California mountains. my wife once brought home a stray, who had to be an outdoor cat of course. Naturally, I ended up forming the strongest attachment to him (all petting sessions followed by sniffles and thorough hand washing). After coyotes got him, I told the family there was to be no more cats. And there hasn't been any since then. 😔

Chris - I'm sorry to hear of your loss.  We have taken in many strays over the years.  The ones that adapt to indoor life stay inside with us or we find them homes.  The rest we care for outside, making sure they have food and water and an insulated box to stay in when the weather gets bad.  We have a bunch of apartments near us and unfortunately when a lot of people move out, they just leave their pet behind.  We've spent a lot of time doing TNR (trap, neuter, release) so there aren't any litters around here, so the cat population has dropped.  Unfortunately we also have coyotes and foxes as well as hawks, so if there were any kittens that we didn't know about, they might have been a meal for a predator.

My son’s two daughters ages 9 and 5 talked their parents into getting them a hamster.  It has been happily living with them over the past year.

 

What appears to be a stray cat recently showed up at their back door.  They plan to take her to the vet to see if she has been micro chipped. If not and if no one otherwise claims her i’m sure they will adopt her.  

 

I’m not sure hamsters and cats are compatible!

We used to have pet mice and rats and even dwarf hamsters at one point.  One of our cats used to sleep on top of the mouse cage and the mice didn't seem to mind.  One rat used to groom one of our cats.  If the cat sat near the cage, the rat would reach our and stroke the cat's fur.  It was beneficial to both of them.  The rat just wanted the cat's hair to line her nest box, but the cat didn't know that.  Unfortunately the dwarf hamsters managed to get out of their cage one night.  All we found in the morning were stomachs, livers and intestines.  I would suggest putting your granddaughters'  hamster up somewhere that the cat can't get to or in a securely locked cage.  The girls can get one of those clear plastic hamster balls to let it run in, but those have been known to come apart, so supervision is highly recommended!
