7. Rescue animals doing well
Max and Bertie have got so big! when they saw us on one recent visit they pounded over like 2 horses, one trying to beat the other and just landed on us with force! unfortunately they have become a little competitive and jelous of one another. Bertie who was the quieter of the 2 has become the more dominant of the 2. He did turn on max several times. It was no good, they were going to have to go in and be neutered, something the vets in alghero do NOT WANT to do can you beleive. They argued and tried to change our minds about it as they said it takes away their spirit...but the fact they may kill one another was a normal thing in their minds! we won the battle and off they went, struggled to get them in the car as they never travel, but made it.
i have left Bertie at the kennels for a little while and maybe re-introduce hoim to the garden in a while.
our aim is to get them both back for re-homing as nobody there wants any dogs.
During one trip to alghero I worked on a colony near a 5 star hotel. I had not been able to catch 5 female cats who were already pregnant. We went to see the colony and there were only 5 poorly kittens, meaning that the rest must have died awful deaths. 3 miraculously were adopted by an Austrian couple who were taking them back home with them along with 3 disabled dogs (wonderful people). 2 are being watched over by some local people.
A friendly young female, who had been dumped at the site, came over and almost begged for us to take her. straight into the carrier she went and off for neutering. she was only 6 months and tiny. She was in season. She was starving and thin but after only 4 days look at the difference! she owns the setee and bops any other cat that wants to share
A new place to live
