NEWS UPDATES WILL APPEAR HERE
As many of you are aware, we will be placing our house and cattery on the market this year. The time has come to hang up our cat caring kit and retire. We came here in 2010 with a 10 year plan, are now into year 9 and thought that we would test the market by putting ourselves on the market this year. Please rest assured that until such time as a buyer is found, everything will remain the same. Cats in our care will continue to receive the same love and attention they do now - they will remain our number one priority. We do hope that we can sell to someone who is more than happy to continue with the cattery and also has a love of cats.
As yet we have no formal details in place but they are in the pipeline. If anyone wants further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
Bookings are coming in now for Easter and early summer, so if you are planning a trip away please contact us as soon as possible to reserve a place - don't leave it till the last minute.
Our stray cat continues to visit daily - sometimes two or three times - for food. She is so very timid we cannot get near her, but she's always ready to eat. I have managed to deflea and worm her which is a good thing. We thought she may live in one of the new bungalows near us but we don't think so, she definitely has a 'stray' look about her. Although since being fed regularly and being defleaed and wormed she looks a lot healthier than she did. We will continue to try and approach her, it would be nice to gain her trust so we can get her to the vet for a check over and possible vaccinations.
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'. She still likes to curl up on my lap in the evenings though which is lovely.
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. It was lovely spending a few days with him last month and seeing how much he's grown. Such a contended baby too.
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
