Hi, new thread x

Lessismore Wed 11-Sep-19 12:33:40

It is possible to reach out to people. You may have to take a few knock backs but it's worth it.

You can always ask people round to your home.

Anniebach Wed 11-Sep-19 12:39:43

Who ?

Lessismore Wed 11-Sep-19 13:11:37

Anybody? Just reflecting on my own self imposed isolation which thankfully I am leaving behind.
We need actual human contact.

nanny2507 Wed 11-Sep-19 20:56:37

salsa any news on the cat. I do hope she comes home. I certainly feel your pain on this one. I am feeling better today thank you

How is everyone today

annie how are you getting on with the splints...any show re gardener

Nonnie Thu 12-Sep-19 10:27:03

In tears. Sold something on Gumtree, nice guy came to collect and we had a chat. He asked me if I was related to DS and went on to say what a lovely guy he was and where he met him. We he had finished I told him that DS was dead, he was shaken. Sort of mixed feelings, brought it home to me just how many people liked DS.

Nanny Not a word on the cat. We spent 3 hours yesterday, driving a bit further away (a mile or so away from son's house, all directions) putting up more posters. I'm offering a reward, so we expected perhaps a call, but nothing. We traipsed around in a nearby cemetery, as my son seems to be convinced the cat is alive but lost somewhere. I don't believe we'll ever find her. The not knowing is awful, isn't it. How's your new cat?

oh nonnie xxx

nanny2507 Thu 12-Sep-19 14:15:32

salsa little marshall is doing really well he had a little visit to the back garden today.literally 2 mins lol

humptydumpty Thu 12-Sep-19 14:18:07

salsa did you contact petsreunited? I think it's worth a try as emails will go out to people all over your local area, and to vet surgeries, rescue centres etc. I know of several owners who have been re-united with their pets that way. They also have pictures of cats that have been found, so might be worth looking through those?

SalsaQueen Thu 12-Sep-19 15:31:43

Nanny I'm glad Marshall is enjoying himself. Bless him x

humptydumpty Yes, I'm registered on that (and others) website. I was quite excited an hour ago, when I had an email saying they had a match that might be Millie. It turned out to be a cat with different markings, 255 miles away, not identichipped. Nothing like Millie then!

I don’t think any one should just be inviting just anyone into there home, there is some not nice people out the please be careful..

Hi all hope every one is having a nice day..

Joce345 Thu 12-Sep-19 15:43:08
This is my home made rag doll reall pleased with her

Dawn22 Thu 12-Sep-19 17:44:44

Very sound advice about inviting people in Joce. Only people you know well and trust.

Love the doll. Very creative.

All the best to everyone. Dawn xx

Lessismore Thu 12-Sep-19 17:48:30

I guess you have to apply some basic common sense in regards to inviting people into your territory.

The alternative of being holed up inside, tapping a keyboard is equally frightening.

Dawn22 Thu 12-Sep-19 18:55:40

Your last paragraph above is unnecessary.
I can assure that the people who post on here have extremely rich inner lives; myself included, poets, philosopher's and prophets etc. You name it. We have talent here.

Anniebach Thu 12-Sep-19 21:31:14

Anniebach Thu 12-Sep-19 22:05:54
