You were commenting on empty shops in the town centre, Tiger will be filling one of those empty shops. Conversations are allowed to stray from their starting point, that's the nature of a conversation.

Potential feral cat

Does this cat belong to anybody? If so, feel free to feed and call him/her in at night please. I can feel its ribcage and spine without pressing. Thank you. Chantry Area.

Agree with Philly57, best to take it to the rspca, they will then check for microchip. Better to be in someone's hands than neglected and skinny poor thing.
Angela W
Personally  I would contact the cats protection league as the rspca have a high euthanasia rate, even for healthy animals

I'm not sure that its the law that is the concern here. If you are supposedly in control of a car but have a child on your lap, you can't be in FULL control because there is a body in the way. I'm sure that those of us with, or who have had, children ... [ more ]
