NEWS UPDATES WILL APPEAR HERE
After a quiet start to the year things have picked up dramatically in the last 2-3 months! We are running at 75% full every week and already have 2 weeks in July, 2 in August and 10 days in October where we are fully booked. So if you need to reserve a place for your purrbaby please do so sooner rather than later.
We've replaced one stray cat with two now. A pure white male with one green and one blue eye and a beautiful tortie/tabby who looks like she may have recently had kittens! Both are being fed regularly, have been de--parasited and wormed and are beginning to look a lot better than when they turned up. The white one is extremely friendly, has the odd spat with our wobblies but loves a cuddle and a wander through the house. We have put notices through local letter boxes, taken him to the vet to see if he is chipped or tattooed but he's got neither. I even put a collar on him with a note asking if he belonged to anyone but no-one has claimed him. Due to the fact he is an entire male he is booked into our vets for castration this week. Little girl cat comes every night and some mornings for food and no doubt when they are big enough, will bring kittens in tow one day! Watch this space.
If you are thinking of getting a kitten (or two or more!!!) Acorn Association based near Mussidan have plenty of abandoned kittens looking for their forever home. I go regularly to play with them and help socialise them so they are not nervous of strangers. It also helps if they are handled a lot as they come to trust us humans. They are all adorable and are offered for adoption having been vaccinated, microchipped, de-parasited and, if old enough, sterilised. There is an adoption fee payable for each cat. If you want any further information please contact me or look at their website www.associationacorn.com
Our cats continue to give us a lot of pleasure - and hard work. All the cats love being outside when the weather permits. Marmalade prefers being in the sunshine and will happily sleep on the decking all day. Toast can be a lazy beggar, might not get out of bed till just after lunch but then will be on the go all afternoon. And as he has a lot to say for himself, can be quite noisy!
Majik is spending more time outside too, so is losing her winter 'belly'. Now the hay has been cut she's having great fun hunting mice and other small creatures in the field behind the house.
Our great-grandson Freddie continues to thrive and is such a handsome lad (I am biased!). Our grand-daughter sends us photos and updates on a regular basis and its almost as good as being there - not quite, I do miss the cuddles. He's learning new things every day now and taking a great interest in life. They have all moved into their new home now so are a happy little family.
Thank you to all our customers, old and new, and their cats for helping with the continued success of Clos Fleuri. We really do appreciate you.
IN MEMORY OF SMUDGE, TIGER, MAYA AND MISTI, OUR LOVELY PURR BABIES.
RIP MY LOVELIES. XXX
