Dear Anneke, so pleased to hear that your health has been improving and that you are at last able to go further than your bedroom. No, I don't think it is weird to experience missing your pet so long after it has died. It is those little habits that hit us most I believe. If your health continues to be positive, perhaps you may consider giving a home to another pal? There are plenty out there who would love to be adopted and loved once again. That's interesting about the our images being portrayed to our pets, would explain a lot. Best wishes to you and everyone, love Susan

Hi all. I have heard it said that cats and dogs think in images and receive ours, Susan. I can quite believe it, they certainly have a radar system that we seem to lack. I am really starting to miss the cats now. My health is improving bit by bit, so I am spending more time downstairs. Last week I opened a tin of tuna, and realised there was nobody to offer the brine to. Then I go to take something out of the freezer, under the fridge, and find there's no animal to stroke. It seems odd such a long time after Spike died to start experiencing this, but up here in my bed, where I spent most of the last few years, I didn't have much to do with them. I do hope Deric and Aileen are holding their heads above water, and the same for all of you, really. Love from Belgium.

I certainly haven't heard anything, Jenny. Hopefully, his family will post if there are any significant updates. I think of Deric and his family often and, of course, all who post and read here. God bless, all.

Hello Don, thank you for the interest. Afraid that since we decided to help Ginger, he hardly comes to us now. We have seen him a couple of times swiping what's left of Maddie's food but he doesn't seem too bothered about getting any food from us. He looks well fed and his eye appears to have gotten better, but I think he is still uncastrated. We think that someone else is feeding him but we cannot find out who. We still keep an eye out for him, in the hope of capturing him, but it is so uncanny, it is as if he knows what is on my mind. Maybe we will have luck eventually, we hope so. Regards Susan

Does anyone have any news on Deric; how he is doing. Think of him and his family daily.

I,too, have a polydactyl kitty. Shes a little sweet tortie. She has 7 on each front foot and extra on her back feet too. Our vet laughs at what he calls her big clod-hopping feet, he says she looks like a bride in wellies! Rotten thing! I love her big feet.

I often wonder whether polydactyl cats are trying to grow opposable thumbs. Just imagine if they could - then they would rule the world (instead of simply ruling all of us cat-lovers.)
Much love to Deric and Aileen, and all who post here. I do hope that Susan's Ginger is safe and well, now.

Hi all. Jan ,I too have a polydactyl cat. His name is Esso and he's a large ginger tiger. He not only has the extra toes on the front paws but has an extra one on one of his back paws and two on the other! I'd never heard of Hemingway cats before I had Esso but there seems to be a lot of them about nowadays. I bet Deric would have loved a Hemingway cat, just think of the tales he could tell! Lots of hugs and love to Deric and Aileen, as always, and to everyone else on here. Kay

I thought I'd better post sth. As it has been so long I may not get counted into the good luck Jan's spreading around. I got a bit huffy with big brother not finding my last attempt at writing sth. Here interesting enough. I hope he will this time, as I am making the effort of trying to type on this little tablet we got. My, does it make me realise my age! Very very slowly I am learning how to work it... How's ginger doing, Sugeebas? Did you manage to trap him and get him seen? I adopted a cat who had adopted us once. He came with his own rule book, and would also disappear from time to time. He obviously had several homes. When I moved, I had no qualms leaving him behind. He was much more attached to the area than to me or my other cats. I had someone keeping an eye out, and the reports were consistently about how well he kept looking. Despite all his charm, he did attack me once when I tried to flea him. Guess he liked his vagabond status. I called him Pablo after I found a Picasso quote saying: I do not search, I find. Suited him to a T. Hope everyone is as well and happy as can be. Greetings from Belgium (for now, off to Luxemburg for e few days soon.) Anneke
