    It has been colder than usual here this winter not snow like US or Canadaicon nor Europe but cold enough to warrant day time heating.
    Anyway I was going out and must find the moggy as if he gets locked in a bedroom he'll set the alarm off, we have an adjusted zone for his lordship.

    Anyway he is the artful dodger I mean when he wants to hide he is bl**dy hard to find believe it or not, he wont answer you nor move for you a typical Siamese.
    I was getting p*ssed off turning the air blue seeking the rotter until I wandered into our room and spied the creature from the black lagoon hiding nice and warm!
    You'd think with the fur on the outside he'd be quite warm apparently not seeking cover under the doona!
    Was not happy when he was removed and plonked in the living room with no heater!!!!!

    Cats have a mind of their own and display nonsensical behavior. This last week, we here in the Pacific Northwest hit temperatures in the triple digits (F). While we ran our air-conditioners 24hours a day for 4 days straight(very unusual) our cat refused to stay in the house (she is totally black). During that time we would occasionally see her under low bushes or under our stored canoe. One day she disappeared completely, which had me concerned because I have lost cats to coyotes and owls here in the woods, but the cat came back(the very next day).
    Now that temps have moderated, we cant get her out of the house. Go figure!

    We have traditionally kept a pretty cool home, though as I've lost weight that has changed. Oreo the studio cat (RIP) used to spend every single night, all night, wedged up between my legs to enjoy as much heat on two sides as possible. That's amazing, given that I hate ANY weight on my legs when I sleep. He lived a marvelous nineteen years and died like a gentleman, simply falling over dead in the bathroom one morning. I'd given him lots of attention that morning when we'd gotten up because he seemed to want it.

    LOL Jim anchored to the spot.

    They sorta know when its time Bob and 19 years out of a cat is extraordinary, that is 133 human years no way anyone is going to live that long though Methuselah did and then some!

    The way I see it our pets are a source of merriment and companionship, the old moggy is, well you never really own a cat and they see us as their subjects at their whim.
    I've had working dogs on a sheep station I worked on and our last deefer was a 40 kilo Doberman whom I feel sadly was not the roundest bowling ball in the pack whilst deefers are loyal they are pretty open with you but the cat is a sneaky conniving little critter.
    We are pretty lucky with this fellow he is very placid for a Siamese and sadly is a DADS cat (Dumb As Dog Sh*t) misses jumps and falls between our 2 single chairs sometimes when swapping human chairs.
    The thing I like about either of them is they ask for nothing but a bit of love & attention (With the basics of course) they give so much back freely.......Hmm may rephrase that thinking of the demands from his lordship when its time for everyone's bedtime or when he is running around growling at nothing in particular protecting us from some thing unseen!

    Happy 4th to all you over there.

    Don't get me wrong for being a bit soft either I have wasted dogs that were on a farmers property savaging sheep, was not the dogs fault but poor ownership or dumping them into the forest whence these 5 strays formed a pack and were running amok on this farm.
    1 x mongrel, 1 x staffy, 1 x Germanicon Sheppard, 1 x red cloud and another bitsa taken out over 1 night and 1/2 a day we shot 2 the first night then in daylight ambushed the other 3 as they swam the creek on the property smacking them as they came up over the bank with a 12Ga and my 22/250.

    The cost to this ladies flocks whilst on the property we shot 23 savaged maggot ridden sheep the most critical ones we saw then dragged 5 from the dams that were dead now this is a serious situation for the drinking water for the flocks as rotting bodies in a still water dam can & does lead to botulism.
    We informed the owner as we only had 2 days one night there due to other commitments so we could not inspect all the flocks there just take the dogs out, she went up the day after we left, rounded up the flocks and shot another 50 sheep so badly were they savaged & fly blown.
    We took the collar from the Sheppard to DEPAW so they could follow up on the info on it and hopefully have them charged
    I took not one ounce of thrill from doing what had to be done and blame the owners for either dumping the dogs or not having them enough under control that they would not run away in the forest, I've wasted plenty of feral cats as well same deal they get away and revert to their instincts to survive.

    Cinders,
    When you up date the alarm replace the current PIR's with PET IMMUNE PIR's, as long as the cats not the size of a medium sized dog you can set the alarm and leave him/her to roam where it wants!
