  1. Two of my old men and I…..🤗 Tabitha wanted her photo as well ..😁 twas 24 in this shot…
  2. Loved this, driving along tapping the steering wheel with……sunglasses on baby.
  3. From what I can tell by reading posts on social media and what is on the RVC website and pet food outlets recalling the food, it is a small percentage of cats - at the moment - that are affected by this disease. I read on the RCV website that around 130 cats to their knowledge have been reported but as this problem has only just being realised vets are being asked to report to the RVC so I suspect over the next week or so cases may go up. It is a very rare disease so there must be a direct cause for this spike, and the food link appears a common feature in all cases. Some people are reporti
  4. Have put this in the lounge to alert cat owners like me.

    Just a heads up for any cat owners out there.  It has come to light that there has been an alarming spike in cases of pancytopaenia within the cat world across the UK.  This is currently under investigation by the Royal Veterinary College who are apparently full with poorly cats with this condition.  At the moment toxins within certain dry foods are being investigated as a POSSIBLE  link.  I emphasise this link has not proven as a positive cause yet but owners feeding their cats these foods are being advised to consider avoiding any dry food with a certain code on until more is known.   Currently under investigation is AVA and Applaws dry food with the establishment code GB218E5009 but it is worth checking any dry food you may have for that code.  The same manufacturer manufactures both foods.  I also believe some Sainsbury’s food is affected.  My cats do have Applaws dry and that code appears on the bag so I am withdrawing the food until more is known.  They seem none the worse but I am not risking it as some families have lost 2 beloved cats within the same household.    As a cat lover I thought I would just raise awareness for other cat lovers.  Both are well respected brands and my Rupert will not be happy his chicken with extra duck has been taken off the menu! 

     

    Update:

    The manufacturers have put out a product recall

     FOLD HILL FOODS LTD IS RECALLING A NUMBER OFPRODUCTS IT MANUFACTURES ON BEHALF OF PARTNER BRANDS - Fold Hill : Fold Hill

      They seem ok but have withdrawn the Applaws and will watch them carefully.  Can’t imagine all 5 of my cats being ill with pancytopaenia - horrific thought.  Roops is almost 16 now and I think his kidneys are fading a little😔😔   AVA had an issue with food some years ago I recall but I don’t think Applaws has never been recalled before - both made in the same place.  Will take it back to Pets at Home tomorrow for a refund and get them something else.  I mix up a combination of dry food with Royal Canin Gastro stuff, Orijen and the Applaws - they have had it for years.  Hope they get it sorted.   They have wet food at meal times but the dry is left down for them to graze on.

  6. 🤣🤣🤣 don’t usually like stand up comedians but he is really so funny. My favourite was always....a year has passed since I broke my nose.....can you work that one out? I have a friend who deliberately changed lyrics like..... there are some things you can’t cover up with trousers and Y fronts 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
  7. Haven't heard either of these a while until this morning when they were played on GOLD.
  8. Memorable song from a fabulous film ...
  9. Yes, very sad. I think she was only mid 60’s as well. Do you and @Ed Stoneremember this?
  10. 😱😱 hope not. I had it in my old SKY box to automatically record any new series that came along but my SKY box was updated January so I’m having to keep remembering to search for such things. Had a quick look on the SKY contents and can only find series 2 and I haven’t seen any new Vikings series advertised via trailers yet. I think it has been brilliant. Not sure how far into the series you are but Ivar the Boneless is absolutely terrifying as he gets older - real evil he must have been.
  11. Just caught up with the thread. Busy with foster cats going out (will so miss Harry and Bonnie) and settling new boy Scottie in. Yes, actually my car radio is always tuned to Classic FM, house and cat pen radios tuned to GOLD. His themes always seem to somehow evoke the atmosphere that must have prevailed in the wild west - eerie spaces and expanses of nothing and then towns full of violence. These are great themes and the shows that went with them were special too. Westworld plot takes some working out but a great opening theme. Hell on Wheels was fabulous as I have
