Tribbles has been a much adored cat since he came into Vera’s life 8 years ago as a young kitten. Sadly Vera’s health has not been good of late and she is longer able to care for Tribbles herself. Tribbles means everything to Vera. A large framed photo of Tribbles decorates her nursing home dressing table, not pictures of her children or any other humans.
The first time Tribbles holidayed at Cuddles his owner gave us a bit of extra information on her booking form, saying “Tribbles is a real outdoor cat, he comes home at mealtimes and sleeps on my bed. He is never out at night.” She went on to say: “He enjoys ham, a slice with every meal”! His favourite foods are Gourmet and other luxury brands.” Her daughter has added more information about Tribbles. Vera’s daughter says: “Vera fell instantly in love with Tribbles when he arrived as a kitten. She went out and furnished him with all the fine things in life, fancy baskets and toys. Tribbles would always lie near to Vera and for a long period slept at the bottom of her bed. If Vera was sick Tribbles would lie on her lap as if he knew she was sick. Tribbles would ask to go out usually at 10am to do his toilet. He is completely house trained. Tribbles would ask for food and then go walkabout, usually returning in the afternoon for more food and a drink. Tribbles would stay near the house and when Vera returned in the car he would immediately appear saying hello to her until he got her attention and a big rub. Tribbles did not like it when I (Vera’s daughter) showed up and he would sit in my chair waiting for me to go again.”
If you have a place in your home/garden and heart, please think about giving Tribbles a home. He is an entertaining cat, loves catnip, playing with balls and milk bottle rounds. Tribbles is residing at Cuddles Cattery at present and if you would like to come and meet him please contact Muriel to arrange a time.
