These date back to 2008.  Macey has long since left us but looking at these brings back happy memories.

Nice dog. Great picture. Sorry he's gone.

Our Clint is a character. Last evening, he was sitting by the stove looking behind it. I figured there must be something of interest back there so I obligingly pulled it out for him. Quick as a flash he found his prize: a small mouse hiding away. I let him do what cats do (outside of course). After that, I was his best mate for the night.

And here is the "stick" she pulled out.

I didn't really want her to pull the stick out however as more and more of it came into view, I became curious as to just how big it was.

Which one of these animals are most likely to sue the owner for posting about their lives?

 

If any of these animals are interested in joining a class action lawsuit let me know ...

So does she fetch it and bring it back to you?

That one might have been just a wee bit too much to have her play fetch with. 

 

I don't actually use sticks as I don't want her to bring sticks back as well as the fact that sticks can be dangerous for dogs to retrieve. That is why I initially tried to get her to leave the stick but she really wanted to bring that to me.

 

She will happily bring back tennis balls and anything else we throw for her though and give them to us.

I tried to play fetch with my dog when he was young. I'd throw a ball, he'd go get it and bring it back. I'd throw it a second time and he would just stare at me, with this look of bewilderment. I'd end up having to go get it myself.

There is a lady who often walks her beautiful Burmese cat on a leash around Civic Square in Wellington. I assume she probably lives in one of the nearby apartments.


It's unfortunate that New Zealanders think leash walking of cats is silly, because it is becoming very common overseas and it makes a lot of sense for the safety and wellbeing of the cat.



It is not a great idea to do this with cats - I would think. Unfortunately, cats dont like open spaces and being on unknown ground. They are also naturally a prey species to other preditors and so tend to like to keep close to known places of safety. I would think that If the cat panics, it runs the risk of being injured trying to escape the harness, or potentially becoming lost.

I would also suggest that cats navigate by scent marking territory - taking them out of this area can be quite stressful and may cause anxiety.

Also one has to consider the effect of other cats boundries. Dragging little herbet the moggy across a fully grown entire tomcats territory isnt probably a good idea. Cat territorial boundaries are partly there to indicate who is around, but also partly signal no-tresspassing.

Jesus frigging CHRIST! We've just lost our last cat Clint (only a year old). I went outside and found him dead on our driveway. Looks like someone placed him on our drive. We heard him meowing outside maybe two hours ago.

 

Our hearts are totally broken now.

Thanks for the support guys.

 

We buried Clint in the garden yesterday evening next to Blackie, Shadow, Arlo and Noelle. RIP sweet babies.

 

On 30 November 2000, I got Blackie from the SPCA (aged ten months). Extra thoughts and love to you today my best mate Blackie.
