Day 60 marked a milestone for Puss Puss’s blog, so we decided to start a new one for him, this time with a small change…
Day 67, 68 & 69
Puss Puss had a very quiet Wednesday and Thursday due to the weather being really hot so he just slept most of the day, but of course it goes without saying that he was wide awake and ready to play when it was time to go to bed.
But today (Friday) he has been wide awake during the day and has been playing like a kitten as I bought him a new toy mouse that squeaks every time he touches it. He has been flicking it and chasing it all around the room, he thinks it is so much fun and has been having a great time playing with it. Every time we think he is tired and has finished playing he starts running around chasing it again. Puss Puss may be 13 years old but he still loves to play with his toys, which is good as he is getting plenty of exercise. He is really making us laugh watching him. Only thing is we have to listen to the mouse squeaking whilst we are trying to listen to the telly!!! Lol.
Days 70, 71, 72 & 73
The blog for Puss Puss is now getting shorter as he has settled in with us and seems to have his daily routine all sorted out, so nothing new happening with him at the moment.
He continues to enjoy playing with his new squeaky mouse, well actually 2 mice, as I have brought him another one. He was playing with the first one so much he would often knock it under the sideboard or a chair and then he couldn’t find it, so now when one goes missing he will play with the other one (and when that one goes missing, I’m on my hands and knees looking for both of them!!)
Puss Puss has an appointment at the vets on Thursday 22nd for his second vaccination and also a check up on his gums, so hopefully all will be well for him.
Day 74, 75 & 76
When I spoke to Claire back in April (2016) I asked if it would be possible to have a cat pen in my back garden so I could foster for MK Cat Rescue, so she arranged for Stewart to come around and measure up ad it was agreed that I could have a pen, but was the space I had in the garden was limited it would take some time to source one that would fit. I understood it would be a while before I would be able to start fostering and as MK Cat Rescue knew I was keen to get started they asked me if I would consider fostering a cat indoors until the pen was erected. I never had any intention of fostering indoors as our home is quite open plan and I was concerned that a cat might get out of the house, but as I was eager to get started on my fostering adventure I happily agreed. So the following week Puss Puss arrived with us and what a sorry state he was in. Now it is 76 days larer and he is fully vaccinated and his gums are healing nicely so he can go up for adoption.
BUT….now the time has come I can’t let him go, he has become part of the family and he belongs with us. He is 13 years old and has been with us for 76 days so it wouldn’t be fair on him to give him to someone else – would it!?
So we have adopted him and I really happy to say that he may have arrived as ‘The Cat With No Name’ but now he has an official name of ‘Puss Puss Jerrard’ and has his own permanent address at his furrever home with us.
Now, I know you will probably say that it is a Foster Fail but as I never had any intention of fostering indoors, I don’t feel like I have let MK Cat Rescue down as I will still have the space to foster other cats when I get my outside pen.
So this is now the end of the blog about ‘The Cat With No Name’.
Thank you all so much for reading the blog and sharing in our journey together, which thankfully has a very happy ending.
