Glad to hear that Wendy and almost certainly. I don't think that animals can have self-pity. They simply lick their wounds and get on with it to the best of their ability. It will knock the poor little moggie for a while no doubt but I bet she soon bounces back. Survival, a very good incentive.

Thanks Ian, I am sure she will make a good recovery. I wonder if she will still be able to go for her walks around the fields with Col & the dog, tripping along the top of the wall beside them. Probably, but I hope she wont try her favourite leap from the upstairs bannister to the newel post half way down the stairs for a week or two!

Wendy, I commiserate with you and of course the cat! I don't think you need worry too much about mobility. Once it has built muscle in the remaining leg and its back to compensate it will cope well I think. There used to be a bloke on Taylor Street who had two three-legged dogs and they coped well and were happy. We have a three legged dog on Wellhouse Street. (Nice to see you use 'newel post'. Not a common word these days!)

 What struck me about the burned out furniture factory was the fact that it looked like a scene from the Blitz, which, of course, it had survived.

I'm nervous about bringing Tinky home, I suppose she will need to be kept confined for a few days at least.
Newel posts, stringers, risers....hubby built the stairs himself not long since, so all the names crept into my brain.

The vet who lives down the road from us has a three-legged retired sheep dog. It goes with them on walks and when the family are all away from home it's looked after by someone else and plays in the garden with their dogs.

House of Reeves, set up in 1867, survived two World Wars and the Depression, a well-know landmark in Croydon as well as furniture store, part of the lives of Croydon people for all that time. Old Mr Reeves, now 80, not surprisingly finds it difficult to understand what is going on.

Tinky is home and bright as a button, already hopping about  on three legs. Our problem is going to be keeping her confined and stopping her doing too much. We are going to try keeping her shut in a bedroom...she has already leapt up onto a quite high windowsill and from there to her favourite sleeping place on a chair.
I am hoping she won't have to have a collar on. She got too distressed by one they put on at the vets, so they had to take it off. Fingers crossed she doesn't worry at the stitches.
She has curled up and gone to sleep as I have been writing. Think I might do the same.....

Good news Wendy, it will probably take a little time for her to get the co-ordination off to perfection and then it probably won't be too long before the first "present" is brought, just to say, "look I can still do it". Does she have to go back for the stiches or are they the leave and disolve type? I would imagine she will be going back for a checkup at some point anyway. Anyway it's sounding good, and a bit of sleep won't do either of you any harm.

Check up in 5 days, stiches out in 11 days. She has eaten her tea laced with painkillers and antibiotics, and terrified my other cat (a large, lazy, fluffy lady who spends her days draped over the tropical fish tank), into leaving home despite the wind and rain. They usually tolerate each other and have the odd play fight, but Feebie decided she was a complete stranger tonight....a quick thump then run away!!

There could be a bit of "Vet sense" going on there Wendy or she could have just taken the hump for a while.

Our two cats are like chalk and cheese. Mille the oldest is mild mannered but a born hunter killer and very efficient at it she is too.

When we introduced the youngest Primrose (who is twice her size now), the runt of a barn cat litter. Millie tried to mother her and introduce her to the skills of hunting. She would bring home catches alive and offer them to the kitten. I am sad to say that Primrose for all her background is a bit of a let down to the feline species, she runs away from mice and hides, how bad is that! As the runt of the litter she has a voracious appetite and will always "clear up" when we feed the pair. Millie has given up on her as a bad job now and they live like yours tolerating each other with the odd half hour of madness with full-on grip and kick fights, growls and chases. Millie always wins despite her size disadvantage.

Feebie may just be taking time out to get her head round the new situation

Let Tiny have freedom. If she's jumping and not bursting stitches she is OK. They are brave and fearless animals, not humans, give her freedom to exercise and build muscle, she'll soon be 100%

Courier delivers El Cheapo Worcester Sauce today. Lulu deliver 5 copies of CHSC book. Daughter Susan visits at 10:30. The Shed demands attention! Busy day for the Old Fart!

Is this politics?

Dave Prentis, head of Unison, and much vaunted pursurer of those who use tax loop holes to avoid tax is reputedly engaged in Salary Sacrifice to his personal pension to ensure that he does not pay the top rate of tax on his salary. Perfectly legal, and one that was introduced by Mr Brown.

Anyone who has an ISA is a tax avoider.  That's why I don't have one.  I try and ensure I pay the maximum tax I should.  And I've got lots left.  More than enough, and even enough is as good as a feast is it not?  I was a huge beneficiary of people's taxes as a youngster and up to 21.  I hope to be a beneficiary in my dotage.  It's only fair I am a net contributor at the maximum level due in the intervening years.
 
I recognise however, that I'm incredibly unusual and hopelessly naive.  But hey, ho!

Richard, I too have never tried to avoid tax. In addition, whan I bought my mother a house my accountant pointed out that if I charged her rent, public assistance (or whatever it was then) would pay it for her and I would gain. I refused on the grounds that it was a gift from me to my mother and in my mind it would have been sullied if I had gained any advantage from it. I told her and she understood. So I may qualify for the same club as you!
