Do you all remember Tara's big adventure a while ago when she was CATNAPPED and sent to the R.S.P.C.A. by some new people who moved into our road just because she went to check them out a couple of times. Well it took her absolutely ages to recover from it as she was totally traumatised by the whole experience, and her mind has never really been the same since. We can't remember exactly how old she is but she must be somewhere between 16 and 18 and if the truth is told she has totally lost her marbles! If anyone feeds her, (and you'd be amazed how many people want to feed other peoples cats, I don't know why they can't get their own) she forgets to come home. In the last year I've had to bring her home from round the corner several times and stop several neighbours feeding her. She is confined to barracks now after somebody at the top end of the road fed her, put a collar on her and tried to completely take her over! She said she thought she belonged to one of the neighbours who has been taken into a home, but this is total rubbish as the children (hers included) all knew she belonged to me. As far as I can tell she carried on feeding her after I asked her not to so now poor Tara has to stay home. I don't think she minds too much as all she seems to do now is eat and sleep and make messes next to the litter tray- yes that's right, next to it.
When she first came home she decided to live on the printer,
She always was a strange cat!
Then because she didn't always bother to go to her litter tray I had to get rid of the carpet and decorate the room the printer is in. so she decided to live in the bottom half of the bookcase I had emptied to move.
Now she is only allowed in the computer room while I am in here. Finn is on guard at the door!
She seems perfectly content with life but it seems such a shame that she can't enjoy sitting outside and talking to the children anymore because of one persons selfishness.
