I just got back from the cruise and read about Wilbur. So, how did you
end up with him? What's his story - was a housecat who lost his home?
That's always so sad.

Unfortunately his mum decided she wanted to keep him after all and took
him back after I'd had him for a month. so I just got to do respite for a
dificult cat, paid for his food, litter, bought him toys etc and got him
taken away.
Angry? Yes.

His mum took him back :-( However I now have two new girlies. litter
sisters aged just 6. Same as wilbur, exotic persians. I've only had them a
week, they are just settling in. A young child developed an allergy to
them. Can't take them back, I've bought them.

Personally, I don't think she had any right to take him back. Once she
gave him to you and turned his care over to you, I would consider Wilbur
to be yours and not hers. What a rotten thing for her to do!

I just wrote a message about Wilbur, but I'm very glad to hear that now
you have two girls (and they belong to you permanently).
