We want to thank you all for the lovely easter eggs. You should have seen the humans face when she turned on the computer.
We wish we could join in the fun and send some ourselves but the human has to go to work in 10 minutes and by the time she gets home it'll be all over. : (
We hope you all are having a great time purrs and whisker kisses from us in New Zealand. Purrs Sam, Mr D and Raza.
It's the latest thing everyone’s talking about in New Zealand.
Funny where ever you go someone seems to bring up the conversation.
Here in New Zealand most cats are indoor outdoor and I know many here on Catster think cats should be locked up. BUT ... I disagree because cats are part of the eco system too, with them keeping down rats, etc. (that will pry on bird’s eggs).
Cats love to sleep most of the day and many people bring their cats in at night.
I heard NZ probably has the highest population of cats per house hold in the developed world. You just need to look outside our home to see it, our neighbours all, but one, has a cat. We know the cats names and see them walking around outside.
It's an interesting debate.
I also think the humans should look at themselves and see that they are probably the biggest threat to the planet. Cutting down all the trees, and bush, for houses.
By the way if you say we should just lock the cats up please also remember that New Zealand is listed as one of the safest places in the world too.
I'm not saying it's at the top as it all depends on who you listen too.
But I think it's lovely to have cats around in and outside they offer so much. To children it is to learn the cats are not wild they are someone’s pet you can't just go and harm them for fun. You should never harm any living thing anyway, but it helps teach kids compassion.
As you know compassion helps keep the crime down. With all the studies they have done with links of crime to animal cruelty.
Cats do help with the Eco system and play a very important role here, I think.
What do you guys think?
Oh I forgot to mention for those that don't know New Zealand. We are group of 3 main islands (North, South Island and Stewart Island) we are situated just east of Australia (an no (lol) we are not part of Australia)and we are north of Antarctica.
We have no large predators here. No Bears, Coyotes, foxes, snakes, large birds of prey, large cats (except in the Zoos) It’s pretty safe here for them.
Where's my treats????????? apparently it's our Birthday today Human. She always forgets. If it wasn't for Catster we'd never know MOL. Thank you all our Catster friends that noticed Purrs and whisker kisses to you, I think we need a new meowmy.
Human ... this is amazing where have the years gone. I still refer to Sam and D as the kittens and to think they are almost considered seniors (to the cat food companies). It really didn't seem that long ago that Raza and I stayed up all night while she had her kittens. We even made a 1am trip to the vets that night.
Just after Sam and D turned one we joined Catster in Feb, So we are coming up to 6 years on Catster.
Just where has those years gone?????? did we sleep through it all????
