    No, she's not his mom... she acts like it, but I had her fixed as soon as I got her, and a few months later got a kitten. She hated him at first (and he was only 6 weeks old!) but now she loves him.

    Oh great! Now I can stop spending money on the baskets and just do-it-myself!

    Thank you! It will be nice to make my own, the size I want, instead of being stuck with whatever's available at the store!

    That's very helpful information with great shots to clarify your instructions Zoe. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I would also suggest using a glue that is water proof. There are some water based glues that are waterproof when dry, but you have to be really careful or the basket will fall apart when the glue gets wet!

    Thankyou SO much for the instructions, that's ACE! My heart melted at the sight of the kitten! You must not do this to me! Our cat is 19 and I have decided not to have another, as I would be in my late 70's before a kitten died! I have however decided that if I can afford to retire with this bl*8dy government in charge, I shall offer to foster kittens for the RSPCA, Judi

    You know - here in the US there are hundreds of no kill shelters that have adult kitties that need a home, I would guess there are the same in the UK. My current cat was 3 when I got her, I will adopt another adult when the sad day comes that I lose her. What's life without that warm, purring ball of love in your lap??

    Just wanted to say - thanks so much Zoe for this pictorial - it was fab, and I am feeling inspired.

    Good to see someone else out there enjoys Jean M Auel, I just wish she would hurry up and finish the series.

    And I loved the kitty cats too!

    Last thing - how on earth do you get more than 4 photos in a post, I never have been able to figure this one out. If only I could, then I would knock you all for 6 with pages of boring Kerry photos. BD - does this demonstration of ignorance mean I have been fired from being Miss Recently Helpful?

    Ciao

    Nope. It just means you have something new to learn about the forum software. In the "REPLY TO A POST" window, both advanced and quick reply, you will see a square, yellow, icon with a mountain and a sunshine. The sunshine looks square unless you zoom in on the icon. LOL. Anyway, this icon when clicked will let you link to a photo on the internet. In a regular thread, you can use this many times, just be aware that the more photos added to one post, the longer that post takes to load. I recommend only four images per post, thus the limit imposed by the "Upload option" to help with loading time for members and visitors to the threads.

    In the article software, you can upload an unlimited amount of photos to your article. Just follow the instructions. I highly recommend uploading images in the article system since linked-to images could disappear if the site where they are hosted takes them down or becomes disabled. And really how helpful is an article with missing images??

    Cheers,
    BD
