I might be on "pre-disengagement" leave (see side bar) but I'm still a Physio and still engaged with aged care concepts as they apply to my previous patients and also (perhaps) increasingly to myself . So I was interested , as the slave of 2 cats to read an article on the Perils of Pet Ownership in the Age today.
My two owners are Flea... please note a) the WTF look and b) the cushion, an Xmas present to me but immediately commandeered by him
The on line version of the article omits the bit I wanted to refer to so I sourced it here and the case I especially relate to in view of my many, many rat stories is the poor woman who ended up with a fractured pelvis running (and falling) out the front door as her cat brought a live snake in through the side door. Below is what the two cats would like to bring in through our side door, only I've now got into the habit of locking the cat door overnight.
Pippi's offering.. she's been carting Ernie around for a couple of years now
