Oh Dagmar that is so kind of you, i think you two will be good friends, cats are so funny, mind you what a horrible man. In uk we have places where you can go to get rescue cats, but they also come to your house and vet the house and you to make sure you are fit to look after the cat. Anyway well done on looking after her, thats awful for her to lose her kittens like that.

Hi Dagmar

She looks lovely, that is such a lovely thing to do take in a cat that needs a home, instead of going out to buy kitten, as you will see if you read the thread Totally off Topic how we all feel about this, hopefully you and she will have a lovely life together giving each other lots of love and cuddles

No, I will not let her go outside, too much traffi8c! At the time she is - I do not know the english word _ looking for a handsom male cat. No Go. Yes, all that crying but my vet is on holydays and than - poor Mrs. Sophie but there will be no more babies. On the other hand she is so skinny but her stomache is getting bigger every day - but not from feeding. I have found out today that she has been strolling through the gardens after the birth of her babies.
Never know - maybe we will have kittens in the future!

No I have been to the vet she is very healthy - but I did not think about asking him to make a screen. I have to go back anyway in 14 days - I know by than (if she is pregnant or what ever you call it with cats) it is to late anyway. If she is pregnant, she will have her babies. No abortion. I have a huge family all crazy about cats. So no worry how to get them away from their mum. But like I am saying the vet is not here at the moment.
And by the way - cute liitle baby cats - I would love to experience this with Mrs. Sophie!

I have been told she is a year or older - they did not know!
I think (and I think I am able to tell since I have been growing up with cats) she is about 8 or 9 month old. And the worst thing is, that she has been famished - she ate everything she could see! Everything even trash: Now we have a rhythm - in the morning I get my coffee she gets her wet food. Additionally she gets dry food ( all she became with her prior people). She does not like it (I have tried several brands). Dont know what to do anymore!

Also how do I protect houses from becoming cat scratchers for my two cats?

Welcome to the Forum...are you able to put photos of your houses on then we will be able to have a look and advise you of the scale. If not...did they come with 'names'?...and as where to start.....well, I would 'dry-build' one to start (putting it together with masking tape and marking each piece, then I would STARE at it for a long time, and look in dolls house magazines and Dolls House Emporium catalogue, and you will soon get the hang of what you want to do with the houses!

Feel free to post on the Forum as we have loads of EXPERTS amongst the Dolls House Addicts (DHA's) to help you out

Hi,

Is the little kitty still not eating? If she isn't, I would not worry TOO much, as she has been through a lot of stress and turmoil recently, and cats often go off their food for a few weeks until they have settled down. Maybe try tempting her with some tuna fish, or some pilchards, something strong-smelling that would be hard to resist

Thank goodness you have given her a new home, it sounds like she will be very happy with you - did the man tell you how old her kittens were when she was taken from them? If they were younger than about 8 weeks old, then he should not have taken their mother away, but if they were 8 weeks or older then they should be fine, and mum cat will soon get over 'losing' them.

If she was allowed to roam free outside after the birth of her last litter, then there is a strong chance that she is pregnant again, in which case, no wonder this guy was so eager for you to have her for free I've been through something similar myself recently, it all turned out good in the end, and I'm sure it will for this cat too now that she is in your capable hands!

Well done, oh and by the way, just looked at her photo's and she is absolutely beautiful!
