I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Thanks hun. Can I cuddle your lovely benny too?

Of course - he's even freshly bathed and brushed for you

Ooooo he smells lovely frodo

And so he was, By Eck - however, we've just returned from our run, where he decided to roll in something unspeakable and very smelly. So bath number two has just been doled out *sigh*

For Sale: One smelly Bear, any takers?

Is he good with children?

He couldn't eat a whole one...

 This is him

He is completely gorgeous. I have rescued cats. One is just as damaged as benny.

He's less broken than he was  
It is a year ago today that we were first introduced, and he came to live with us two weeks later (though we didn't formally adopt him until the end of October).
What a year it has been!

A YEAR?? Where has that gone?

Well, our most seriously damaged cat has been with us over 5 years. We've discovered his back and tail were broken and not treated. He has arthritis and gets very distressed at times (and urinates or destroys). He attacks dustbins and climbs through windows and cat flaps if he thinks there is food. It's a reminder of the time he lived on the streets and had to fend for himself. Yet this apparently broken, and difficult to rehome cat is a lovely animal. He snuggles up to us, is so gentle with the children and will follow me if I visit neighbours. He waits by the door for me, calling until i reappear. Oh, and if anyone is poorly he has to stay with them.

Tell me about it, Mr P! 
It's already been three months since Big Dog died. Still miss her

I am actually very surprised that Bear isn't more food obsessed (unless he happens on the odd abandoned pork pie, he'll leave food until he's given permission to eat it), bearing in mind he was starved to the point of death. 
He is, however, tennis ball obessed, instead. And it has to be an out-sized, squeaky one too = expensive habit

Morning all. How is everyone? Can I some updates please? I dislike the recent quietness of our forum.

Peace and love,

I don't like our forum being quiet either, I'm missing you guys
I'm not very well and its making me a bit withdrawn. I have an emergency meeting with the psychiatrist this week ... the CPN wants us to change the anti psychotics cos they don't seem to be controlling the hallucinations very well at the moment. I am hoping I have just pushed too hard lately and we don't have to mess with meds.
I'm not getting here every day with things being so crazy (things or me depending on your view point) I like it when you've all been chatting still, tis really nice to catch up in the lucid bits ... and Frodo's bear is as beautiful as ever ( to the odd pie comment)
A belated hello to our newcomer, keep posting

This bear can tend to snaffle bits of pork pie left around too

It's not usually this quiet, Rich

Hi guys hope you are doing well.

Am feeling good in myself. Think I have finally managed to leave some things behind me.
