As the proud owner of three rescue kittens, one of my great cat dilemmas was solved on this week’s Your Pets page. Peanut, Rocky and Charlie, a female and two males, were feral when we adopted them from their temporary home at Celia Hammond Animal Trust in East London. Rocky had been found inside a car engine! And as former ferals, they were very territorial around food and I wanted to know if there was an effective way of feeding them all at the same time without them ‘guarding’ their food. Now I have found my answer to their feeding issues on page 47 – as well as learning onions are toxic for dogs! Life in colour I adore the shades of the rainbow showcased in our homes feature on page 38…

come on inside!

The ideal present Thank you, Woman’s Weekly, for solving my problem of a golden wedding gift. I was reading my 2 July issue and there it was. A gold cake server! I went straight online and purchased one immediately. Problem solved and all down to you. Thank you for a great magazine. Margaret Wood, Derbyshire A tear to the eye I am 72 years old and have read your magazine for as long as I can remember. My mother bought it and, when I left home, so did I! This morning, over my toast and Vegemite, I read Arthur Smith’s story about his mother-in-law [14 May issue] and cried. It was such a beautiful expression of his love for her. Lynette Dunn, Australia Paws for thought This is a very friendly and affectionate stray cat we feed in…

gardeners’ questions

Q My hardy geraniums are looking very tatty now. Is it OK to trim them? A This time of year you can cut the old foliage right down to ground level. Doing this stimulates the plant to produce fresh new leaves and, if you’re lucky, more flowers. Remember to water well after cutting and feed with a high-potash fertiliser, such as tomato or rose food. Q I love my lilies in pots on the patio. But they have unsightly holes and brown patches on the leaves. What’s causing this? A It sounds like an infestation of lily beetle to me. Check your plants daily for scarlet beetles, pick them off and squash them. You may also see orange eggs on the underside of leaves, or sticky black clumps, which is beetle larvae disguised…

you wore it well

My mum and dad married during the Second World War. My mum’s outfit was pale blue and her accessories were navy.

what you’re wearing

Jackie Hammond, 60 Tell us about your look… I had jeans on but my daughter decided we were going out to lunch, so I borrowed one of her dresses. This maxi is from New Look and it’s something I might not have chosen for myself but I like it! My sandals are from Primark. Whatever I’m wearing, I always wear gold jewellery. And the best bit of your body? My legs – although they’re hidden today. Laura Shearer, 49 Tell us about your look… I love a maxi when it’s warm and sunny! This green polka-dot dress is by Just. I always think a wrap style is very flattering and I love the sleeve length. I bought my sparkly espadrilles from a boutique in Suffolk called Fleur Aldeburgh. As well as having a good selection of brands,…
