18 is an astounding age for a laptop!I would have thought given your location that Internet access comes under essential services.
I'm looking for a new laptop. My old Sonny is, well old, 18 years old I think. A couple of the keys don't work and it's painfully slow. While I'm not too bad at fixing the large desktop computer, laptops are a bit too fiddly for me these days. I've seen a couple that would do around the £200 mark.
That's exactly what happened after I lost my first little flock to Mr and Mrs Fox. I took several months to get over the shock and disappointment in myself, months that the old cat Yasmine used to set herself up with a delightful cubby in the little coop. She loved it in there! Whenever she went missing, I'd look in there and her little face would be looking out the window. Very cute!A nesting box would be a fabulous space for a cat to rest. Much like a cardboard box but outside with nice warm straw and friends that stop by for a chat now and again.
