    As Saje said I went to the vets today to ask him what was going on!! And he was just about to go out on his large animal rounds so not the most receptive time to catch him! :rolleyes: (There's no small aninmal sugery on saturday morning) He said that in his opinion and without seeing her that she was going through a Phantom preganacy! She is still bleeding a little bit so I asked him about this and he said it was very rare for Cats to bleed when in season but not totally unheard of! I asked him what I should do then, and he did his arrogant French Man shrug which means, ok my interest in this subject is waning!! So i asked him again what I should do!! And he said just to keep an eye on her and if she's still bleeding Monday to take her in!

    She is perfectly happy and has eaten well today! She's spent most of the day lounging in the Garden sunning herself. And she got stung by a bee!! :( But the swelling is going down now!! *Phew*

    So it's just the waiting game for me this weekend!! :(

    I'm quite dissapointed actually, I was getting used to the idea of having little ones around!!! *sigh* As long as Katelina is ok though is the main thing!! :D

    Sorry to hear the sound of little itty bitty kitty feet won't be coming. I hope Katelina made it through that nasty bee sting ok. Give Katelina kitty meows and kisses from Tiny and Bear. CJ loves cats so I know she will definitely send doggie hugs & kisses. Keep us updated on how Katelina is doing. (Forgot to say that vet sounds like some doctors I've been to.)

    tho it is sad you were looking forward to your babes, it is probably best for her that she isn't. Having kittens is hard on cats..physically. Are you going to have her fixed? maybe you can adopt her a baby so her phantom preg would be a success..(and a happy one for the kitten too) :)

    I'm gonig to make an appointment on Monday to have her fixed Smkie!!! I don't know how Gus would cope with another cat!! She torments him constantly as it is!! Lol! :D I'll have a serious think about getting another cat!

    And not really Gapeach! This is a rural farming community, cattle and sheep and of course they aren't pets! Cat's are everywhere here, people encourage them to breed on the farms because the catch Rats etc. So if one gets killed they are very nonchalant(sp?) about it as there will be another litter next year so the cat numbers will always be about the same!!
    Dogs however are a totally different thing!!! There are two catagories here 1) are the Working collies, Hunting dogs, Guard dogs (it is legal here for a dog to bite a trespasser here!), and search and Rescue hounds. These are prized above anything else and are treated like royalty!! 2) And then you have your pet dogs which are always groomed to within one inch of their lives, never get dirty and hardly ever venture outside without being tucked under an arm or put in a bag!! :rolleyes: lol.

    True!! They aren't cruel to the kitties, they just don't care about them that much!

    And Darkchild that's why I was laughing! Gus is over 66 Lbs! Couldn't carry him for long if I tried!! Lol! :D

    I sometimes wonder what I would do (Lord forbid) something should happen to Carey, b/c I can't pick her up. I guess I would have to have one of those adrenaline rushes! Or slide a blanket under and drag her.

    Everyone always asks me where I bathe her and then they don't believe me. Yeah I have to clean bathroom after (it's Maggie's tub) but I just spray it down with cleaner while it's still wet and then spray with the shower head

    He shake all over, jump out of tub? :D We taught Carey to shake with shower curtain pulled in front of her (but she'll only do it once. Then she stays in tub until I dry her some. She adores getting blowdried but mine is broken.
