Big bag of cayenne pepper off Hyson Green sprinkled around the peripheral should deter the cuddly purring meowing evil ninja little bastards from pissing all over your rattan furniture.

Lizzie Sometimes I forget to take cushions in and in the mornings they are always covered in cat hairs. The other night i left my towels on the sun loungers so of course the cats find the best beds.We've also had a lot of swallows resting on the telephone wires and electric cables right at the top of the house and the droppings we see in the mornings is... well you can imagine. One morning there was more than usual and I was annoyed because I have been cleaning it every morning.  As it turned out it had been a pigeon but it stayed only one night thank goodness.

Our cat Pix has got two cyst's: one on his back & t'other on his head, vet doesn't want to do an operation to remove them because of his age, so she's showed us how to drain them. My wife Sue holds him steady, I then sterilize a needle in the gas flame, wait for it to cool, then prick the cyst while holding tissue's to catch the gunge, sometimes the gunge will spurt out & you have to be quick to catch it, we then wipe him down with baby wipes.  Doesn't seem to hurt him as he's sat there calm & purring, we always give him a treat afterwards....

 

He woke us up last night as he was having a fall out with Tabby Cat from across the footpath, the flipping pest, still love him though...

Our cat, Humphrey, had a recurring cyst. They have roots, apparently, and will continue to refill unless the roots are removed. That involves a general anaesthetic. Humphrey often punctured the sac himself and the only clue would be a wet patch on his fur where he licked it clean.

Your vet seems really good Colly, and so are you for draining the cysts so efficiently!  How often do you have to do it?

MargieH.. About once a week, we can tell when they need doing as they feel a bit hard to the touch. He sometimes bursts the one on his back when he goes in the field out the back & he catches it on a bramble or something. We buy those cheapo baby wipes from Aldi to wipe the gunge off his fur...

That's very frequently, Colly. Humphrey tended to take a few months before his refilled. It's a good thing you're geared up to do the job and he must be very trusting of you, bless him.
