Hi there, Keith, and the rest of your lovely team.
I'm the lady who met you all (frequently!)recently when I was over in England staying at my mother's in Drighlington. I was trying to sort out her two old cats, Rosie and Tiddles.
I'd like to thank you for your service, particularly Keith for all you've done and for going out to see my mum and explaining things so well. It's such a difficult situation. The cats have been mum's world, particularly since my dad died in June last year.
Mum's quite stubborn, and thinks she knows best (maybe all mums are like that!). She didn't want either of the cats to be 'upset' by having to go to the vet's; however, I think she realised that professional intervention was necessary in this case. I had to be 'the bad guy' who took them off in the cat basket for a car ride......!!
Tiddles is doing amazingly well, against all the odds, bless him. Rosie is giving cause for concern as I write this (Sunday afternoon in Oz; early morning Sunday in England. I speak to my mother every day, and she's reported that Rosie is being sick a lot and has diarrhoea.
I can tell from my mother's voice that she's really struggling to keep on top of the situation. Having to give the cats special diets has been a headache for her, and all the inevitable cleaning up after Rosie is taking its toll. She sounded very despondent this morning, and I know she's exhausted with the situation.
I'm very concerned, naturally. If only I was still there at least I could help. I believe mum's going to phone Keith on Monday. I know that whatever happens you'lll have done your very best.
I think you're all wonderful!
Janice...and my two Pommie cats in Oz with me!!
