    On Friday night I finally managed to trap a stray cat after feeding it for a few nights. It had been hanging around our garden and house for about 3 weeks. About 7 days ago it started to try and get through our cat flap but couldn't due to one of my 3 cats guarding from the other side. As a cat lover, I felt really sorry for it so started to feed it. I managed to actually stroke the cat when it was eating and I noticed it's eyes were very swollen and weepy and I felt it was a bit bony after petting it. This was when I decided to trap it so I could get help. The cat does not belong to anyone in our village and I don't think it has strayed from a nearby village as there aren't really any - we are kind of in the middle of nowhere. I think somebody has dumped the cat (I have had this before when I lived in another place).

  • Advice about spaniel dog.?

    Hi everyone I am looking for advice from experienced spaniel/dog owners. I have a 5 year old cocker x springer and I am really struggling with him at the moment.

    Hi everyone I am looking for advice from experienced spaniel/dog owners. I have a 5 year old cocker x springer and I am really struggling with him at the moment. When we first got him my husband was at home all the time and our life was so different to what it is now. In 2012 my husband was made redundant and as he has quite a specialised job the only post he could get is in Africa where he now works 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off ongoing. When I am by myself for these 4 weeks I really struggle. The other major factor is that I suffer from scoliosis which is also getting worse. I find it very hard to walk the dog as I can only walk on flat level ground and I cannot give him the walks he needs. He seems sad and is always looking for attention. I also have a 13 year old son and when my husband is away I have to do everything and be everything. No-one in my family really wants to look after or help that much with the dog because he is such hard work, plus they all have busy lives. I have been told by my GP that I need to start strengthening my back with special exercise classes etc otherwise I will end up in real trouble, plus I have a part time job. I just can't do it all and I just end up feeling resentful towards the dog, especially when I am in pain and he is looking for constant walks and attention. I feel very stressed with it all and don't know what do do. My husband thinks we should get the dog rehomed to family that can give him what he wants.

    Hi everyone. My 5 month old female kitten was spayed on 5 November. She was spayed in the middle of her tummy (instead of the side) because she also needed a hernia repair She came home with an Elizabethan collar on but when we let her out of her box she went ballistic and in fear of her injuring herself we tool it off. We kept a close eye on her to stop her licking and most of her wound had healed apart from a small half a cm bit at the end. At her post op check the vet said to put her collar back on for 3 days to let it heal. I told her she would not tolerate the collar, so the vet gave me a t-shirt which fastens at the back with poppers. She has had this on for 3 days now and I have checked the wound this morning. It has now scabbed over and healed. She is not too impressed with the t-shirt and she seems sad with it on as it is quite restrictive. Do you think I can remove it now as the three days are up?

I do not like tinted moisturizer or face powder as it is too greasy and has the same effect as foundation. Can you get some kind of cream that is translucent but makes my skin matte which will hold me makeup. Thanks

    Hi everyone I started trading as a self employed trader on 1st March 2014. Therefore I have to do a tax return from that small time to 5th April 2014 (which I am doing online). On the Tax Return form there is a question that says "date your books or accounts are made up to". As i have not actually had any work since the time the business was registered on 1 March 2014 to 5th April 2014, I do not have any accounts for that time. (I do have accounts etc now because I have had work after the 5th April 2014). What would I actually put in there? I have tried calling the Tax Office and they tried to put me through to a "technician" (whatever that means) but there are not any available today and they will call me back within 72 hours. The thing is I cannot get any further on my form until I answer this question and I would really like to get on with it and get it done! I would ask my accountant but he is on holiday right now. Many thanks!!!

    Hi everyone My husband works in Africa on a month on and a month off rotation and is paid in US dollars every month into an offshore account. We live in England and have to transfer the money from this account to our account in the UK. Because of the exchange rates (which are always higher than "tourist" exchange rates) we seem to be losing money every month. The rate from US dollars to UK Sterling seems to rise all the time and since last year we have gone down over £400 a month because of this. I am worried it will go up and up until we earn next to nothing! Is there any way we can get around this rate (I don't want to break the law though!!). But if anyone has any ideas please let me know! Best wishes

Without going into personal details of the trial, it was either held at Winchester or Swindon Crown Court. She did visit the Citizens Advice Beaureau who gave the website address for www.justice.go.uk, but she found this quite confusing, as I also did on looking at it! Does anyone know what we do next or at what we should be looking at on the website. Obviously we have more details of the trial, but for personal reasons I cannot list them here. Many thanks
