Snake eats pussy for breakfast.

Talk about making a meal of it.

“When I came out of the house the cat’s legs were hanging out of its mouth”

That’s what January Clay, a resident of Australians northern state of Queensland said she saw after she let her pet cat explore outside her home for half an hour.

The mouth she was talking about belonged to a 3 meter long python that was clearly in a mood for food around the 5am hour, when Ms Clay let her cat roam outside.

And despite the loss of her beloved pet cat, talking from her Cairns home, February was philosophical about her loss. I mean January.

The Cains Post:

it’s just nature, he was just doing what he normally does. My cat was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The python eventually left of its own accord.

Ms Clay’s attitude is in stark contrast with some other Cairns residents, who have recently played a role in bludgeoning several native species including pythons and a crocodile to death.

Tropical Wildlife Protection president Anthea McAllan applauded Ms Clay’s actions.

I definitely do commend her for not doing anything to the snake,” Ms McAllan said. “They’ve got their place in the ecosystem and it’s important that we respect that.”

She said the best thing to do was to keep cats indoors or build a snake proof enclosure to avoid such a tragic event.

Fat Cat! Pets start developing same diseases as their owners in record numbers.

In 2007, animals, Cats, europe, health, pets, UK on August 7, 2007 at 7:32 pm

Where’s my lasagna biatch!

In the true spirit of Garfield, pet cats in the UK are starting to get the same diseases as their owners, relishing on the lazy 21st century western lifestyle.

“The lifestyle of cats, just like their owners, is changing. They are tending to eat too much, gain weight and take less exercise. Unfortunately, just like people, cats will overeat if they are offered too much tasty food, particularly if they are bored and have little else to do.

“While cats would naturally exercise outside, many cats are now house-bound — perhaps because they live in a flat or because their owners feel that it is too dangerous to let them out — so they have little to do all day but eat, sleep, and gain weight,” said Professor Danielle Gunn-Moore from the University of Edinburgh.

The fattening of the UK population of cats parralels that of the human population and has led to a sharp rise in the cases of diabetes in felines.

Among the breeds, Burmese cats are three times more likely to develop the disease.

Tips for all you cat keepers in having a healthy pet cat include:

Choose a healthy, natural cat food

Lots of foods are full of artificial additives, sugars and cereals and not enough meat. Look for natural dry foods with at least 26 per cent meat and wet foods that have more than 80 per cent meat

Feed the correct amount

Follow the guidelines on the packaging rather than just feeding to your cat’s appetite

Small regular meals

Don’t leave food down all day. Instead, give your cat small regular meals when it is hungry

Avoid titbits and treats

Leftovers tend to be very fatty and treats are usually rich in sugars, so avoid letting your cat snack between meals

Make your cat work for its food

Rather than serve the food openly in a dish, hide it. You can buy specially designed toys in which to hide dry or wet foods, or you can improvise Exercise

Introduce exercise gradually

If you have a fat cat it will need to be eased into it. Cats are not like dogs. There are no set targets and you cannot force them to exercise

Playtime

Rubber balls, a ball of wool or any toy with catnip in it should really get them going. Activity centres with scratching posts and hanging toys are a good way of interesting them in exercise

Walkies

You can buy harnesses to take your cat out for a walk. It is not for every cat, but some will benefit

 Hey, after all that, maybe even you can get in shape just like your pet cat.

Whos top of the food chain? Lion joins in with Tiger in deadly attack on man.

A 56 year old man in Mexico City has lost his life after a lion and tiger kept as exotic pets on the roof of a Mexican meat processing plant attacked while being fed.

Caretaker Angel Aguilar was feeding chicken to the cats when the lion swiped through the bars of a steel cage used to keep the animals, pulling him inside. The tiger then joined in the attack.

The man was still alive when paramedics arrived on scene in the neighborhood of Iztapalapa, but they could not get past the animals to treat him.

The two big cats, which had separate living quarters but came together to eat, were  kept by the plant’s owner as pets and were in good health.

After the attack, which left scraps of bloodstained clothing on the floor of the cage, the animals were sedated and the tiger’s jaws tied around a chunk of wood.

The tiger later died, apparently of suffocation, after being transported by animal protection authorities to a nearby zoo in a small container. The lion survived the journey.
