This blog is about my individual experiences while rescuing and re-homing cats for the Sunderland animal rescue charity Animal Krackers. The blog itself, however, does not represent Animal Krackers; it's just me, my sense of humour, and my personal take on things and in that sense, it's about me as much as cats. It it was a film, I'd give it a 12 rating for the occasional mild swear word and strong story.

CATS IN A BASKET
This is a bit of a miscellaneous collection of photographs with some brief explanatory details for those which need them. First off- cats in a basket!
A feral cat in a crusher cage at the vets where he'll be neutered and later released back where he came from.
Kittens! You've seen them before but now they're a week or so older than the last time and just as cute.
Last night Carole was asked by the police to take in a cat which had been found with her owner who had been dead for a week. According to his landlord he'd been suffering from Hepatitis B and Carole had wanted her checked out by the vet. No idea how old she is -my guess was 8 but she could easily be older. Despite being trapped for a week she doesn't seem to have lost any weight -she's quite heavy- and seems in good condition, though her teeth and gums need work. Curiously in both appearance and manner, she's quite similar to Lotus, the gentle old girl Susan and I have taken in recently; her fur is much softer though.
And lastly a photo of our van with donations I'd just picked up.
