She is sitting next to me as I write this. Her neck has almost completely healed and her snuffling is much better (I wish she knew how to blow her nose!!!) Her appetite is enormous and she and Percy are getting along absolutely fine - they just ignore each other. One thing I meant to say is did you ever notice that her right back paw is much larger than her left? Quite weird really... look forward to seeing you. I have an influx of young coming over starting on 4th August and lasting a few weeks so she will get even more attention from them! Look forward to seeing you soon xx

Just to let you all know that Luna (Poppy) is doing fine. Em and Warren (Kingtonks) came to lunch at the beginning of the week which was great. Poppy is growing, is very affectionate and her neck has nearly completely healed. She has had a very runny nose but Em suggested that it might be aggravated by the heat and so I have put a fan on in the drawing room (where Poppy sits in state on a silk cushion on the sofa!) and it really seems to have helped her. She remains a dear little cat and there is still no problem with her adopted, elderly brother Perseus who just completely ignores her. For the moment all is peace and harmony although she loves eating cicadas which I try to discourage as she usually presents me with one back leg!

I've just found this thread, and read with fascination the tale of Loonie and the many other cats and kittens on the island. My sister too has a cat 'situation'. When she first moved into her house, word went around the cat population that here was dear old lady, who will feed us regularly and care about us enough to make it worth while adopting her - my sister.
Over the years she has had many cats pause for a time with her, the females bring her their new kittens for inspection and the boys merely sit and ponder all the activity.
At present she has two adorable ginger twins, their mummy, and various other regulars. I give them all names when I visit. There is Boris the backwindow cat, Tipsy, whose head is one sided, Tabby Tornmouth, who had surgery to his mouth, that was ripped apart by a machine of some sort, and so the list goes on. Her Whiskas bill is enormous, but she wouldn't consider stopping. Such people are saints. Kate

Hello Ellenjay- just to let you know that Luna is sitting next to me as I type this - purring away! Her neck has healed completely and her breathing is almost clear. She eats immensely and follows my old neutered tom (Perseus) everywhere. He is very patient with her and even lets her eat his food. She is twice to three times the size she was when she arrived. Her name has been a saga. When she came home she was called Luna but I found myself calling her "Loonie" for short! So I decided to call her Poppy. But when (my half-Greek) daughter arrived home for her holidays she wanted her to have a really Greek heroic name (as she had been so brave when so tiny) so we decided to name her after Laskarina Bouboulina (a famous heroine of the Greek War of Independence) so she is now known as "Boubou". She is no trouble at all and is incredibly affectionate and we all love her to bits.

Dear Em - great to hear from you - yes we are all fine although poor old Perseus (now 16) found the heat in August rather unbearable. Boubou is very well but seems to think I am her baby and washes me all the time (is she trying to tell me something!?) Please get in touch next time you are in Corfu. The shortcut home from Benitses through Gastouri has been a "no-no" all summer due to coach congestion. I learnt my lesson with you guys in the car that day we had to reverse such a long way!!! Love from Corfu and Lias
