That's the advantage of having a cat. It doesn't really matter what you call them they usually ignore you anyway.

Our cat is 'officially' called Dusty for the purpose of his microchip and the vets' records, and you have to have something sensible to call when you want him to come in, but most of the time he's called 'Little Poo' a name that came about when we first got him from the RSPCA and he use to make some evil smells from his rear end, and you wouldn't really want to stand on the doorstep calling that! He's also called Cat, PussPuss, Kitty, Move, Shift, Get out of the Way, and many other things all of which he totally ignores. The only words he really responds to are 'dinner' and 'WAAWA' a sound he makes himself and means food.

Whatever my dogs have been called, more often than not it's stay dog, go right dog, to me dog, move dog.

Our most recent dog who was rescued via the RSPCA about 4 years ago, came with the name of Stryder, but being a cross with a Rhodesian Ridgeback, Staffordshire Bull Terrier a possibly Lurcher, we decided to find an Africaan name for him, but somehow this didn't materialise and he became Tyler for the vet's records. It seems to settle for 'Dog' very well?.

Nothing to do with dogs, but did anyone see that Horizon program on cats last week. That was certainly an eye opener.

Chronos, was going to see the program but missed it. Going on the cat population around my neck of the woods, then watching them is an experience in itself, especially when they leave their trademarks around :O)

The two dog's we have tend to live in harmony with the cats, but we did have an incident many years ago, when A cat got fed-up with a German Shepherd we had. A large and apparently protective dog with a badly scared nose doesn't look to impressive.

Apparently when we take out horses out for a stroll we look a right sight; old dog in front then a couple of horses then young dog and finally the cat. The cat will only go round the block and often takes a short cut home through the woods. The dogs have been trained to walk with the horses and automatically stop at road junctions and 'over' starts them crossing over the junction, 'cross' makes them cross to the other side of the road and 'path' makes them get on the pavement. It makes them a pleasure to go out with and causes amusement to passers-by but with us riding the horses we cant have them on leads.

Well a companion for life and will soon settle in to be one of the family.

If you do not have it insured yet I would say do it as quickly as possible you never know the minute that you will need to see the vet and it can be very costly.

Training is probably a good idea as my daughter bought a Labrador 2 years ago and it is still as mad as when she got it because it has never been trained.

She can't let it off the leash as if it sees another dog it is off to play.Same with people all it wants to do is play but some folk do not appreciate that and I can understand why.
