Many of us will have experienced that super friendly cat who seems to love being stroked one minute, only to bite or swipe at us the next. It might be easy at this point to blame it on the cat, but what’s likely happening here is that we’re just not stroking them right.
Many people think that keeping a cat contained (not letting it roam beyond their own property) will make the cat unhappy. But experts say that’s untrue.
It was an early start yesterday for the two-hour drive from Auckland through typical winter fog to Hamilton. All worthwhile though, to be part of another very well-organised and well-attended Hamilton Cat Club show.
What a nice show! The Oriental Shorthair Cat Association show yesterday in Kumeu was very well-run and had so many beautiful cats, I really struggled to vote for the Public Choice winner.
Thanks to NZCF and the Patches and Pointed Cat Club for today’s National Cat Show in Tauranga. We also enjoy seeing the beautiful cats, and we were pleased to talk with so many people interested in ways of keeping their cats safely at home. 15 June 2019
We’re delighted to hear that Wilbur the roaming cat was found – 25km from his home in Cambridge – after he showed up at Waikato Hospital in Hamilton. But it seems that Wilbur’s safe return to his owner, after 16 days away from home, owes an awful lot to good luck.
Thanks to all the organisers and exhibitors responsible for yesterday’s Nine Lives show at Hamilton Gardens. We enjoyed talking with cat owners about how to keep their pets safe and happy at home.
Jade and her family, including four Ragdoll cats, recently moved into a new home in beautiful Central Otago. Peter Ellis and his team from Entranceway Fencing installed the sleek coloursteel fences and a black Oscillot system. Jade posted a 5-star Google review which you can read.
Can the Oscillot system go around curves? You bet! This is a very special installation we’ve just completed in Auckland. The paddles were custom powdercoated to match the fence at this new development.
The final weekend of school holidays drew thousands of people to the Auckland Pet Expo, 13-14 October.
One of the biggest stands at the show was staffed by the Auckland Cat Club who had numerous cats on display – and most of the cats were available for patting, unlike at cat shows where you can look, but not touch!
