Hello Jan,

New slippers eh? I find it really hard to walk in slippers as they often fall off. On the other hand I need them for the two blocks of ice people usually refer to as feet. You can’t win.

We lost 2 of our cats this last year. They were over 18 and they’d had a good life though. Now we’ve just got Seymour hobbling about in his 3 legs. He is a very loving little chap of 7 years. I’m not sure if we’ll get any new ones soon, we might leave it until our daughter Rose gets a bit older.

I actually went out this morning on the scooter-it’s really a bit of a battle to get out but I’m always glad afterwards.

Best wishes, Steve x.


Hi Jan, I find the only slippers I can walk in are mocasins. I buy Dunlop ones on Amazon. Wear them all the time and out on scooter in warmer weather.

I’ve got my name down on a couple of Sheltered schemes in west London (I live in a sheltered scheme in north London at the mo) as I want to be nearer my mum and sister… and the two I’m down for allow cats!!! So as soon as I move I’ll be contacting a local cat rescue centre. Can’t wait!

I think Sheltered schemes that don’t allow cats (and that’s most of them) are cruel. When you live alone and are not well the company of a cat can be of real benefit.

Damp miserable weather in London.

Have a good weekend Jan and Steve and everyone,

Pat xx


Hi Jan,

i have just discovered totes slipper socks and they are brilliant. They are so comfy and warm.

I spent the whole of the summer indoors in bare feet but that is no use now and these are the next best thing.

I have now a variety of colours and must look a bit of a sight but who cares?

Really missing our old cat who is being looked after by my daughter until our flat is ready. Our granddaughter says she thinks Leo ( our cat) wants their house to be his forever home. I dont think so. I might have to buy her a kitten. We will see.

Hi Jan

i’m sitting here with Smokey, one of our two cats, fast asleep on my lap. He’s making my legs hurt but I don’t want to chuck him off, he’s sixteen now and has really slowed down since the summer. He’s diabetic, and has insulin twice a day, but he’s absolutely brilliant about it, no fuss at all, in fact he enjoys the attention and the praise he gets after each jab. It’s a part of his daily time table, and he even comes in from the garden for it when Ruth whistles and shows him the syringe.

Anyway, he and his sister Rumbelow were born in the house. We took on their mother from the Cat’s Protection League, she was pregnant and unwanted because the child where she had been living was allergic.

The CPL. is a good place to start if you do decide to get another cat (or two). In fact we ended up with two adults and eight kittens, but it’s a long story… Just the two now.

Happy Christmas!
