“I found this cat yesterday. the lower body fur was cut off and right ear seems swollen. the cat was also very skinny. we lured her home and gave her food and water. rather tame and sweet natured. … Could metta help to broadcast and see if anybody lost the cat? I dont think I could keep the cat, abbie was all hissy and angry yesterday. Plus we are having some renovation works at the side garden/ yard. It’s quite a mess. The cat is outside the front of my house now, there’s shelter. Appreciate your help.

Update on Barnie: Yesterday, Barnie was discharged to SY’s care. Barnie is very very skinny (literally skin and bones underneath the hair). One of his ears is badly shrunk. His appetite is also not good. However he is ok with other cats.

I think he’s settling in. He’s sleeping lying down now so that’s good. We’ve trimmed his fur further so that it’s more even when it grows back out. He seems to prefer wet food to dry foo…d, and we noticed that his teeth are in bad shape (his mouth smells bad!). But otherwise, he’s a handsome fellow and is settling nicely.

My 4-month local stray is probably the most stressed by Barnie; the existing Persians are nonchalant. So typical…..

Here are some photos of Barnie lounging and sleeping in his favourite chairs.
He’s much stronger now, and can jump up to the chairs and beds. And also more relaxed – his sleeping position from when he first came home and now are such telling differences. And the other cats have accepted him, or rather they don’t bother each other.
