Re: and today i have mostly been...

That's weird. Maybe duffed up, a leap too far or lightly run over. Glad he's ok anyway. Did he actually have a temperature or anything to warrant the antibiotic, or was the vet just finding ways to bump the bill up? I'm not happy at all about not being able to take kittens in, I really want to be ab...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Thanks guys. It'll certainly be the end if we don't get any more kittens, just keep up to date with the vaccinations and this lot should be fine (Mirela says she "believes" the vaccinations will protect them :? ) so it's just the usual stuff to worry about - cars, idiots with air rifles, dogs, other...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I'm sorry to say we had William PTS this morning, Thursday evening he stopped eating and started vomiting, we stuck him in the spare bedroom with a plan to take him to the vet's yesterday morning (Friday) but in the morning he seemed to improve and even ate a little, we had hopes but by the evening ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Charlie seems to be ok, thanks guys. I suspect the hunger strike was him protesting being imprisoned, he was his normal friendly self otherwise so, in the end, I relented and he seems normal now. One thing that did show up during his panicked visit to the vet's was he has bad gum disease, I've no id...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Thorough? I feel like I need to burn everything. There are domestic cats all over the place, I doubt if any of them are vaccinated. Wild animals too, related species like martens that can also contract and spread the disease. Charlie still isn't eating as much as I'd have hoped. He's been to the vet...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Thanks, Charlie's actually eaten something this evening - I defrosted some of my precious real bacon supply so I could take some up to him. He didn't eat it all and I had to poke it in his gob but it went down, followed by a little chicken and chicken gravy. It's not as much as I'd hope but it's bet...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

He was just too young, I'm afraid he died about 11. Mirela gave him more fluids and a painkiller, I said I couldn't see any point in letting him suffer so she said to leave him with her as she could keep a close eye on him and give him a painkiller OD if it became necessary. In the end he just stopp...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Stronghold for all yesterday, rather pricey (60 quid odd) but Mirela gave us a syringe with needles (which I have to return so they go in the right bin) with the instruction to buy 2 ampoules for big dogs and use the syringe to take 0.5ml from them for each cat (x8). Plus 2 big and 1 medium for the ...

Re: 12 Volt domestic lighting transformer - excess heat

Wiring not up to the job, poor connections, psu dying. Mind you, if the lights are getting dimmer the further away that says the wiring has too much resistance, maybe the connections if they're done one to the other. But that wuldn't explain the PSU getting hot. Nah, it's cattled.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I have the same problem with tools, especially if I'm busy, so I have to keep telling myelf the job's not properly done if the tools don't go back where they came from. Not that it happens all the time but I try. At them moment the Matchless is surrounded by spanners (Whitowrth, imperial and metric ...

Re: Clunk clunk clunk when turning... New drive shaft time?

It's an epidemic, most modern's have a problem with broken springs, if you look on most car forums you'll find them. They always used to last forever (just gradually self-lowering) but I think it's the use of different materials and maybe they're smaller to be lighter. However, PSA don't do themselv...

Why thankyou sir! :mrgreen: The carpet could have done with a clean, once it dried out it is a tad smelly, and, drunks being drunks, it's got a fair few fag burns and even some chewing gum but... I'm sure I can improve on that once I do some welding over it :supafrisk: It's still a bit cluttered in ...
