    Can she come up here, bring medieval dress and pipes and pretend we are in Hamelin?

    He's gorgeous john...a pretty big fellow...I couldn't do fostering I'd have to keep them all...I'm not sure if people are aware how loyal friendly & sweet they are...Harry is just a big softie

    he's actually quite small compared to my Sidney, I offered to foster him but was told I couldn't so I collected him from his original home and then he stayed at mine to settle a bit then I ferried him to his foster. he was a big softy but a little unsure of what was going on bless him. They are a breed apart though.

    Thanks for the good wishes for eye injection tomo. @DJC3 I wasnt aware of being tense about tomo but maybe that combined with son going away may have a bearing. As always with Diabetes who knows!

    He's not yet 3yrs old, he was a lovely fella, our Sid and Trixie would have helped sort him out, and unfortunately there will always be a bulldog in need that we can help in one way or another (I will get off my soap box before I start ranting;)) but Bullies are the single most affectionate breed I've ever had, including the Staffordshire who are affectionate, just the best breed going really.

    Do you remember the story of Christian the lion who was ordered through Harrod's? True story.

    Do sweetgums grow in Britain? I once brought a sackful of their seedpods to my boss who wanted to keep a neighbor's cats out of her front garden. You mentioned pine cones -- could you get a sackful of something like these? --

    There are sound devices that reportedly emit a sound humans can't hear but will repel animals. I imagine Amazon or similar might carry them.

    I don't know about cats being wary of rubber gloves, but they frighten me. Just thinking about it makes me squeeze my cheeks together.

    The worst thing of all is tomorrow I will be in hospital for serious liver checks seeing the top man from my transplant hospital.

    6.3 for me this morning after sleeping in 'til 9:00 (other than getting up early to feed the KittenCat and take a pill while I was up).

    I wonder, if I started going over to her where she is sleeping and calling her out loud and waking her up, would she get the message that that is not a nice thing to do and stop doing it to me? ^. .^

    Of course I wouldn't do it to her ...

    That's your requirements taken care of but, to get back on topic, how do you propose to keep cats out of your garden?

    I suppose to get back to the topic - my blood sugars at present are 5.2
    As for the cats, I may have to call on the A Team.
    What would really be handy is for a small group of very noisy and persistent people, say 3% of the population, to shout and scream about the rights of the gardener.. blah, blah, waffle, waffle in order to make current legislation more symmetrical. Oh, and about those flying pigs.....
