Inky in Isolation (with a few friends and enemies)

Inky Tells All

Greetings Humans! Inky here again. It has been far too long since the last letter to you, so I am taking over from Cait Sith. In case you were wondering, she is okay. Just busy with new kittens to train. Or, at least, that is her excuse. How hard can kittens be,...

Euthanizing and End of Life Care: Making the Hard Choices

Yesterday's (November 7, 2018) presentation at the NZCAR meeting provoked a lot of ideas for the cafe and memories of Madara and Mao who passed away in Shanghai. Madara, our tortie girl, was 15 when she got sick. We were trying to feed her and she choked, dying in our...
