When a German fox wondered into a meadow looking for a nice meal, he got a hell of a lot more than he bargained for…

With a juicy young lamb in his sights, Mr. Fox thought he was home sailing, but one of the rams in the field that day had other ideas.

The aggressive sheep, not interested in having one of the flock’s younger members doing a disappearing act, unexpectedly charged at the stunned fox, and hunter became hunted.

The fox took flight, literally, scuttling up a nearby tree where it remained for quite some time, before making a quick dash back to the den.

They don’t make them as tough as they used to be.

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.

It’s a fake!: ‘Van Gogh’ Painting connected to Rupert Murdoch proven near worthless.

In 19th century, 2007, Amsterdam, Art, australia, Business, Culture, europe, Head of a man, Life, london, News, Odd News, Painting, paris, Rupert Murdoch, Society, UK, Uncategorized, Van Gogh, World News on August 3, 2007 at 6:59 pm

Ouch!

gogh_wideweb__470x2912.jpg  How embarrasing!

Like something out of a classic Hollywood thriller…

A self portait painting supposedly created in 1886 by legendary artist Vincent van Gogh, purported to be worth Australian $25 million (US $21.5 million), has been proven to be a fake.

The painting called ‘Head of a man’ was bought to Australia by the father of media billionare Rupert Murdoch, Sir Keith Murdoch, and has been with the National Gallery of Victoria collection since just before World War 2.

But when the painting went on a tour to Europe, experts in Amsterdam tested the painting regarded as “offbeat” and an “oddity”, by Van Gogh specialists.

Last year The Sunday Times in London published claims by Van Gogh specialists that the work had been incorrectly attributed.

And today, it was announced that those claims have proven accurate.

The gallery said there would be a “downwards adjustment” in the painting’s value when the Victorian state gallery revalues its collection next year.
 

Downward adjustment indeed!

Not so stary, stary anymore…..
