Helen, the lady who looked after Nancy when she was at Cliveden, rang. She was very concerned as she had learned that a couple were leaving shortly and had made no arrangements for the cat they had been keeping an eye on for the last 5 years or so.
What could we say ? Beverley went to collect her the day before the couple were due to move.
Chrissie (so called because of the Cliveden connection !) is a beautiful tabby tortie. We think she is about 7 years old.
We took her to Alma for a thorough MOT. Her general health is good. She had been chipped but the chip had never been registered so we can use it to register her as a C.L.A.W.S. cat.
Blood was taken so an analysis could be undertaken. Everything was fine apart from her glucose level which was above average :18 (normal is between 6 and 8) This might mean that she is diabetic but stress can cause glucose levels to rise. She is to go back to be re-tested in two weeks time.
In the meantime she is settling in and beginning to relax and make friends with her carers.
STOP PRESS !
Good news ! We took Chrissie to Alma for her 2 week check up and the test results were within the right parameters so she is not diabetic.
