Yep. Twice a day, 7am and 7pm, since January. After his surgery they thought he might improve enough that we might be able to stop the injections, but alas that was not the case.

I was the same, she just eats felix pouches now and she's not too bad, although she does tend to be hungry most of the time, and always thirsty and peeing.

Kitten-cat (my first cat, completely black, (former?) Diabetic) I've just noticed is looking better than ever, a bit chunky, and fur is looking more midnight black (and less smog cloud grey).

Cat physiology is weird.

Humphrey (the one who looks like a cow) had alopecia around his eye and after a £40 conversation with the vet who was good enough to say it was worth changing their diet before doing anything with steroid creams that we can't afford, is now looking normal again. We don;t know if it was stress-related or if he prefers the felix rabbit pouches to the felix fish pouches, but there it is. Maybe this is the same thing that's made Kitten look better.

Did I mention cat physiology is weird?

Scarby is healthy and Millie will probably need to get spayed in a month or so, but in the mean time she is like an insane Velociraptor.

This has been Cat Report.

Couldn't think of a name for him so I asked my six-year-old niece and nephew. They came up with Fuzzyhead. Fuzzy for short.

THE FACE OF EVIL

Presumably to express her joy at a second child joining our family, our Maisie here has started killing birds and bringing them into the house.

Do any of you Anorakers have any ideas on how to deal with this?

A collar with a bell, or a willingness to accept the circle of life.

We are excited to see what kind of psychopath Millie will be when she has free reign in the Scottish Borders...

We tried a collar and a bell with ours. It seemed to slow her down a bit, but not completely and there was always the risk of her hanging herself from a tree with it, it got removed various times and was often found out on the street in states of disrepair, so we stopped. She seems to have stopped now, maybe it's just a phase they go through. A bit like in 'The Wasp Factory'.

Another theory is that she's simply become too fat to catch anything. A morality tale if I ever heard one.

Yeah, a couple of loud jingly bells (you can get really cute little cowbells) and A MASSIVE BOLLOCKING when they bring them in the house - the shame gets to them eventually (the rspb stats on how many birds get taken by cats is incredibly sobering so I'll go to great lengths to stop it happening...)

Depends if your cat responds to a massive bollocking. Ours just looks at you with withering contempt, a kind of visual "who the fuck are you". In fact, I wasn't really aware that cats had any shame until this moment.

If I may post a picture of someone else's cat, this ridiculous animal now lives with my friend Sam. I believe his name is Reuben.

Yes, I was hoping people might think that instead of thinking he looks like Hitler, but unfortunately it seems people can do both. So I've resigned myself to it.

Millie is now officially Milton. Although we still call him Millie and Billy occasionally. I'm not sure what this has informed me in gender stereotyping of cats but it's been interesting. More interesting than 'I Am Cait' even. Milton is much more a cat of the people than Caitlyn Jenner will ever be.

I'm moving into my own flat soon and can finally get a cat so have spent the morning reading this thread and melting. Also laughing at the posts about Phil.

Almost a year after our last cat sadly died at 17 we finally got some awesome new ones. We had to wait a while because we knew we were going to be moving house so we're pretty excited now.
Amy is in the 1st picture and her brother George is in the other two.

They seem to photograph a lot grumpier than they actually are!
Amy spent most of yesterday hiding on the corner so we thought it might take a long time for her to get used to us but after leaving them alone for an hour we went back in the room and found we suddenly had an attention-seeking lap cat!
