Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
I agree with you Keberoxu, it's a mystery why people 'obtain' animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs etc) and do not care for them properly, either through ignorance, lack of empathy or just laziness.
The owner of McGinty (the late Sam the Skull's owner) has also obtained a big dog. Her new boyfriend drags the poor beast around on a lead and treats it very harshly. I don't know a lot about dogs, but this doesn't seem right to me.
My lovely lovely neighbour, the veterinary nurse, is the most compassionate animal-lover I've ever met (and absolutely obsessed with cats!) She can't see either why people 'get' a cat and then toss a few dry biscuits down for it, while not seeing to worming, de-fleaing or necessary injections. I'm so glad she lives next door to me, and her gay partner (another vet nurse, and co-owner of their Sheep/Chicken Sanctuary) is also a joy. (I might buy a posh hat, as I hope they might get married any time soon!)
Just before writing this, I put down some treats for Pippin and McGinty. Chopped tuna, a Purina sachet, (which contains essential taurine, that all cats need) a bit of butter and a little knob of Philadelphia cream cheese! They're both out there now, licking and munching together like old pals.
