Vets have started giving out my work no now (must have words!!), so got a phone call just before lunch about a stray a few mins drive from my work. As I am supposedly full (and no carrier in the car - mental note to now take address book, carrier, camera and food to work every day!!), I said I would pop round and get some photos, to notify lost and founds, and either when Bella went, or after my night away in London, I would take him in. However, he is very thin, and I felt awful leaving him there, he is very affectionate - she said he hadn't been eating much, so I gave her the HiLife Tuna and Salmon pouch from the car (found very few cats to turn that down), and said I would nip him to the vets on Thurs to check for a microchip. Spoke to my neighbour about him, as he appears to be a Manx, and she asked when I was getting him!! Said I hadn't planned to, as I am away the weekend after next, and didn't want to ask her to feed too many, she told me not to be daft and get him, so when I get him to the vets, he can come back here in the cage - rang the lady, she was really pleased, and told me that he loved the food I left, so she is going to go and get some more for him. He is an unusual colour, like a really dark brown and white, and I would guess at a true Manx, as there is very little of a stump - will put the pics on my photobucket acc tomorrow and post them. So 6 cats, despite me saying on Sat that 5 was my limit.
