|We relocated interstate this week to teach and study, and found ourselves staying with this charming gent.|
This week involved a bit of travel, and an unexpected opportunity to stay with a friend. One of the highlights of hanging out with other vet friends is meeting their companions, one of whom is pictured here. D is a sphynx and a very friendly one at that. Within 30 seconds of meeting he had politely directed me to the cat food then proceeded to go through my bags. I drew the line when he tried to jump in the shower (he has a weekly bath so doesn't mind getting wet).
SAT reader Nell shared a very useful post which I am going to reshare here: Companion Animal Psychology have put together a great resource on fear free handling at the vet. View it here and follow the links.
|He followed me everywhere!!!|
In other news, Gosling Creek Aged Care facility in Orange has announced it will build a small farm and garden for its residents. The farm will be home to pet therapy animals including a miniature horse, chickens, goats and insect hotels. It would be nice to see more facilities using this model.
