A thread for dog and cat lovers

Post by boatlady on Sat Mar 15, 2014 1:56 pm

First topic message reminder :

I'm noticing several of us seem to enjoy trading stories about our four-legged companions, and wondered if people would enjoy having a dedicated thread for this - possibly to include photos of them if people want to show off the beauty of their particular animal friend.
 
Having been for many years owned by a series of cats, I one day took charge of a couple of Yorkshire terriers whose owner had just died - I'm now a complete dog convert - but still love cats. The Yorkies are long gone, but have been replaced because I found I just couldn't do without dogs.
 
Currently, my four-legged family consists of Jennie, a Jack Russell bitch who is more intelligent and more lovable than most of the people I meet, and a terrier cross named Jimbob who embodies enthusiasm and never fails to bring a smile.

I love the way cats can continue to hold a grudge - for years and years and years ----

It's not worth us having at times because those two take up most of it! Laughing

Urbun foxes are a bit of a worry though. They are becoming a lot more brazen, that's fine but they must NOT stalk my cats, else there will be hell to play.

Bit like my neighbour who is a cat hating/racist/daily mail reading crappy Tory/UKIP person!

Our housing association warned us about him prior to us taking on this tenancy, as he'd cornered the housing officer and said no blacks or asians!

.....We had to bid for the property, but he didn't say anything about two gays moving in!

The further adventures of Jennie and Jimbob

Jennie and Jimbob have had an  exciting Bank Holiday weekend and are very tired.
On Sunday, they had a day out on the boat and a visit to Grandma, who gave them a very little bit of chocolate and a handful of carob drops after their dinner. They had a lovely prance on the river bank and helped us to finish the picnic lunch.
This afternoon, they had an unexpected visit from Jimbob's very best friend, a little girl who was only 5 when he was born and who he loved playing with until she moved away with her parents 2 years ago. She visited with her parents and played with him again and fed the fishes (Jimbob really loves fish food so he helped her)
Now they are curled up on the sofa with their daddy and dreaming sweet dreams.

Jennie and Jimbob thought, as everyone is so upset and depressed about the politics, that people might like to hear about their weekend activities - which they enjoyed very much.

They went on the boat for a very short voyage on Friday afternoon and then had a weekend-long picnic on the riverbank near Oulton Broad, with a lovely soft blanket to sleep on in the sun and lots of nice things to eat. They had several lovely walks and explored some lovely smelly ditches, then they went back to the boat where they had lovely things to eat (turkey, chicken, cheese, biscuits, jerky and some naughty ginger snaps, washed down with several cups of tea)

On Sunday morning they got up and had some bacon and egg, then were taken on a visit to Grandma who gave them a lovely tea.

They've come home now and said hello to the fishes and all the neighbours and now they're having a lovely snooze in their armchair waiting for bed time.

Jennie and Jimbob really hope hearing about their weekend helps to cheer everyone up

Earlier this year we had to replace a wooden board which had rotted, on the end gable of our house. Within a short time of the job being completed I became aware of a tremendous cafuffle from a bluetit repeatedly flying at and pecking the new wood just under the eaves. Clearly we had blocked the entrance to a nest.

Peace was restored when we drilled a 50 mm hole, and I was subsequently pleased to learn that the Law actually obliges us to do precisely that in all such circumstances. Three cheeky young birds now treat my garden as their own, but have so far not offered to pay any rent.

Bird life in the garden is worth a bit of inconvenience, isn't it?

Cats, dogs and birdlife are no better at living together in peace than are components of the British political system.

We enjoy seeing the birds foraging and frolicking as the seasons pass, they include pigeons, blackbirds, bluetits, sparrows, robins, wrens, crows, and other common sights, with the occasional pheasant and grouse straying from a nearby hunting chase. Highpoint this year was a solitary heron that rested here for a few minutes.

Unfortunately we also see domestic cats moving around the locality, associated with the odd bird corpse found on our lawn in the morning. Not inconvenient, but definitely distressing when it occurs.

Years ago, when I was a mad cat lady with four cats, there was a blackbird nesting nearby - every single year, my cats made it a project to slaughter each and every one of her chicks - she never seemed to learn, but she expressed herself on the topic with great force and passion year on year.

Now, in a very small walled town garden, I mostly get gulls, who have an eye to the fishpond - so far, we're OK but I confidently expect they will eat one or more of the fish any time soon.

We have a pair of cats, via a rescue service, who are sisters though not particularly "close" emotionally.  The Gordon Setter treats them equally with disdain, but cannot stop himself from the occasional points-scoring.  If I have a cat on my lap, Iain will dislodge it with a casual but effective side-swipe of his muzzle. The dog and cats have to be fed at different times and locations, so needless to say there are no photos available to complement the previous posting.

My two have a very traditional attitude to cats - when Katie, the cat, got too old to jump up to the top of the fish tank, she had to go into a retirement home at my mum's, where she enjoyed several more years before fading away genteely
