We have some going begging, if you want it.

Our older cat, Minardi, has been missing for over a month now. He'd never been away for more than a day or two before, so I've just about adjusted to the idea that he probably isn't coming back; he had a congenital heart defect, and the vet had warned us that he might die suddenly at any time, or else might live to a grand old age without any symptoms at all. Most likely he just died suddenly, and hopefully relatively painlessly, on one of his patrols around the neighbourhood. So it goes.

So, thanks to special offers and my chronic tendency to over-order when I do the online shopping in a hurry, we still have four-and-a-half boxes of his preferred food, Whiskas chunks with gravy for senior cats, which our younger cat won't touch - unless possibly to bury it in the garden - because gravy is icky, apparently. I'm inclined to keep the half-empty box just on the off-chance that Minardi does randomly turn up one day looking for breakfast and acting like nothing happened, but keeping four full boxes seems excessive, and they're slightly in the way. One of them has its lid torn, but all the sachets are intact; the other boxes are unopened. If you have a cat that will eat them, and you live sufficiently local to us that we can get them to you without involving Royal Mail at vast expense, they're yours for the asking.

Liz, I'm so sorry to hear about him going missing. :(
I would take it off your hands but miss Tally has just ben put on prescription food by the vet. Otherwise, that's one of her preferred foods....
I hope he does return, but my condolences if not. X

Oh no! I remember Minardi with affection for his quirky, proud personality.

Sorry to hear that, especially the not knowing what has happened to him bits.

I know cats can be very fussy - Vasco wouldn't touch gravy unless it was on a human's plate and we ended up donating his supply of 'old cat' food to the local Cat Protection League.
