i started this thread five months ago (i was anxious!) ..... maybe we can merge this with the latest thread about the national vegan festival in london?

edited to add >> the newer thread is in the Activism and Action Alerts thread.

What a great idea!! I'll certainly do that providing I can go -- so far everything has gone wrong and I'm rearranging my transport!

Also, everything is now depending on the latest addition to my family - an orphan rat (yes, a regular "street" rat!) which I'm fostering. It's likely it'll die, but if it's lucky enough to survive until the 14th, I'll have to miss the festival to look after it. I don't mind though, it really is a cute rat

P.S. Thanks for the lovely e-card!!
oh no - i hope everything works out with your transport.

my thoughts are with your little rat friend. i do hope he will be okay....

i won't be online after friday. i am going to the netherlands for the international animal liberation gathering until sunday and then flying straight to england sunday morning.

i will *try* to check my email when i'm in england but the people we are staying with don't have internet accesss. if i see an internet cafe, i'll be sure to run in and check out VB and my emails


i hope to see you at the festival.

send me an email anytime you want to

'Ratty' is doing really really well -- tonight will be it's third night! I'm pleased it's survived so long. It's starting to take it's milk really well too


International animal liberation gathering?! Wow!! I didn't know about this! Sounds amazing.. I'm very jealous! Where about in the netherlands is it? (I have distant relatives in Maastricht)

What a busy time you have ahead! I hope you have a fantastic time at both festivals and a great journey. Hopefully I'll see you at the Vegan Fest.. when I know more about my situation, I'll e-mail you, just in case you find an internet cafe. If not, no worries


Take care,

Natasha

hi natasha (veggitash)!

you should call rattie he or she, not "it" .... hehehe

he or she just sounds nicer and more like a being and not an object....

i'm glad to hear that s/he is doing well. you must be a really good foster mum


thanks for the message. yeah, i'm pretty excited for the gathering.

it is somewhere north of amsterdam (a three hour drive for us)!

i shouldn't even be on here (VB) writing but i had to reply to you.

there is still so much to do !!!!

anyway, i hope to see (or hear from) you in england.

I'll definitely go.. The missus is looking for some vegan shoes and I think I saw something on the site about that. I spotted the word "beer" so I'm there.

Ooops! I keep doing that, because I'm not 100% sure on the gender (although I *think* it's a little girl). I'm trying my very best to be a good foster mum, I just want her to survive, or at least be comfortable.

Thanks for your reply, depite having loads to do!!
You probably won't get to read this message, but if you do, have a safe journey and hopefully I'll see ya soon!

I'm afraid after several problems, I have had to make the decision not to go


It's mainly money really -- I'm saving it to buy my birdie a huge cage and then adopting a friend for him. So I guess I can't really splash out on a loads of vegan goodies right now.

Also, this is REALLY unlikely, but there is actually a very large security alert in London from Friday to Sunday, and although it's so unlikely anything bad will happen, my Mum isn't too pleased, so I can't go....
