Can anyone advise me about what to do... I have rescued four very pretty, healthy kittens from a feral cat living in the area. The kittens were abandoned and in danger of drowning when they fell in my neighbours half empty pool. I've been hand rearing them for 2 weeks and they are nearly weaned and starting to use the litter tray but I can't keep them as I already am feeding 4 cats including my two house cats. I can't advertise them without microchips and numbers but am reluctant to spend more money on them unless there are homes out there for them. They are getting very lively and starting to explore their surroundings so it is getting harder to keep them safe in the barn. I will try and cope for one more week but then, unless I've found homes I will have to have them put down - which will be very hard. All my friends already have cats (mostly rescued) so I need to search further afield. Any suggestions? Don't advise local rescue centres - they are inundated with kittens and the maire cannot help. The mother cat is now at the vet's to be sterilised.
Meredith!!! Please come back!!! Eight years ago you wrote a plea to vote for Obama with Bridges to nowhere (or something like that). Eight years on and the world has gone to the dogs, including AngloInfo. I blame this on Barack Obama. He is responsible for the disaster that is Angloinfo. Him and Hillary Clinton. They spent all the money on the Clinton Foundation, and so had to employ an 18 year old computer hacker to revamp the site, cost 10 euros per day/month. Mr President-Elect, please intervene. We need you.

HI All this is just a little question has anyone in the Puntous area (65) lost a male Golden Retriever in the past few weeks or so? This morning this dog was in our garden and has now been attempting to access the property all morning.He is a good looking male approximately 3 or 4 years old no collar and is relatively nervous of strangers, he appears very friendly but when you approach him he walks off, he also has what looks like several raised dark coloured sores on his fur which looks like he may well have been on the loose for some considerable time, no one in our village has lost their dog and he has been seen wandering for some time now, unfortunately we are not able to take him in neither will he stand still long enough to photograph him.
Vanille came into the care of Les Amis des Animaux from the refuge where she was dumped as a puppy presumably because she had a severe case of entropion in both eyes. This meant her eyelids were turned inwards so the lashes constantly irritated her eyes, making them full of gunge so she could barely see. Now they are perfect.Her description comes from her current fosterer in a series of Facebook messages:“I've been fostering Vanille (often called Milli Vanilli) for Les Amis des Amimaux for ten days now and it feels like she's been here forever ! She's really found her feet now, her personality has emerged and she is playing with all her toys, eating her meals and just generally being a lovely girlie ! . . .“We celebrated her first birthday on Saturday and she had a few presents but of course the perfect present would be a forever home.We think she's Labrador/Shar Pei/Setter but of course this is all guessing .. She's only 14kg so she's not a big dog but she sure has a big personality. . .“She will fetch a ball, enjoys a game of football and likes to chew a stick, adores her monkey and she especially loves having a mad half hour doing laps of the garden and leaping in the air like she's crossing a finishing line at the end. She is young so she'll then collapse on her bed and snooze quite regularly .. Which gives me time to collect up her numerous toys from the garden !“She's a very gentle girl, takes treats delicately from your hand and absolutely adores kisses and cuddles. As I said, Milli Vanilli is just a year old so she's young enough to learn and does still pull a bit on the lead for example, but she is very obedient, responds well and keen to please. And she's beautiful !!”All Milli Vanilli needs now is her own forever home where she can fill a gap in your life. Please come and meet her. If you are interested, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 06 40 59 40 01, or express your interest on her album on Facebook. ID NO 250269802602510
We understand there is bird flu at present but we would like to take our duck back to the UK. The ban is going to be lifted in August to enable the movement of ducks in France. I have tried DEFRA and they can only advise me on the movement of a lorry full - not one duck. Can anyone help please. Thanks
Hello to all. Can anybody recommend a wholesale supplier of tinned dog food in France or even a supplier of dog meet? Or do you have experience shipping the tinned dog food from UK or elsewhere? We have two dogs that will become big and are looking to buy the food for them in bulk. They don't seem to be thriving on dry dog food... Thank you and a very happy spring to all.
Bobby has already made his debut on the pages of Les Amis des animaux and is now about 10 months old, ready for adoption and awaiting his very own family.He is a border collie X, larger than average for the breed, making him a truly handsome and eye-catching specimen. He recently attended the Les AmisFete, where he was comfortable in the presence of lots of other dogs.As a young puppy he was acquired by a family completely inexperienced indog ownership. The mistakes which followed with his upbringing resulted inthe family becoming frightened of him - a classic example of a confused puppy having not been shown any boundaries or training.He was taken under Les Amis’ wing when he was only about 4 months oldand went directly to a highly experienced foster family. Under their guidance it was not very long before he began to make huge progress resulting in the Bobby of today who is a pleasure to own and has a good level of training with his foster Dad. He knows the basic commands, including a good recall, both on and off the lead, is at ease in crowded areas and happy in the car. He does still have the residue of an early-developed food aggression which is a work in progress but is still many times better than when he was taken on at such a young age. He is good with other dogs both male and female and excellent with children of all ages. He has not been tested with cats or poultry. As with any dog of his age and breed he needs to be active both in mind and body and would benefit from a family who participate in dog-related activities such as agility, fly-ball, cani-cross - or simply just enjoy good long walks. He is chipped and has a passport, vaccinated and has been treated for worms, fleas and ticks and is sterilised.
