Hi all

My little girl was lost for a whole week, I really thought she was gone, we did posters leaflets etc etc.

Then on Friday night at 01.30...a tiny meow at the end of the bed and she was home!

A few battle scars on her nose, and a she was a bit spooked but now she's back to her minxy best.

Posting pics to celebrate her being home.

Congrats. The missing pet posters always bum me out, especially when they've been up for a couple weeks.

Nice pics too.

That last shot is stunning.. ... Is it a manx?

Sadly, I went through the same thing almost 1 year ago .. I didn't have the happy ending.

So I'll celebrate yours! Give that beautiful cat a hug from me! :D

You were lucky to get her back, if only she could tell you what she's been up to. Has she been speyed, otherwise you might be soon hearing the pitter patter of more little paws. She is very beautiful, I love the B&W pic.
Can you stop her from wandering, I have been told they're notorious hunters. I'd be frightend she'd get skittled on the road or something.

I want to get a male, in tact, and let him roam the neighborhood knocking up all of the strays, completely change the local stray bloodline. I live in a rural area so not too much danger from traffic around here. Both of my females wander at will, sometimes for months.


Feel free to use any photo's that I post for any purpose that I don't find offensive. I'd be honored to find my pics used on that world wide web thingy....

Hiya

She's speyed, and microchipped too! Not sure if she's flirtatious!

She does hunt frogs and mice, I see a lot of those! She also likes to stalk the Seagulls in the garden, but they end up ganging up and dive bombing her...

I'm pleased you like the B&W pic, I like that one too!

Take care

D

Just gorgeous photos. Beautiful eyes.

I thought it was a Bengal just from the first shot. It's the eyes and the coat colour that are the giveaway even before you see the spots on the coat.

My friend up the road had a Bengal, absolutely stunning cat and had no fear of dogs as we would walk by with our dog who was anti-cat (but adores her own). I did get to pick up the cat for a cuddle but it would do his strange meow and struggle to get free. He used to go in the vacant lot where a snake had been spotted and unfortunately oneday a snake bit him and that was the end .. I was quite sad when I was told by the owner. My kids adored Sabre, aswell as myself.

You sure are very lucky to get her back.. a beauty of a cat like that.. I had often thought Sabre would be stolen but he just wasn't people friendly lol so it went in his favour.

With the seagulls divebombing her, could they have a nest nearby because that's what happened to my son when he went near a seagulls nest. Never had it happen again even around 30 seagulls wanting fish n chips.
