This blog is independant – not affiliated to any organisation and none of the article content is paid advertising. We are Norma and Joe De Bloom, 2 thirty-something professionals in the city. Our lives are currently graced by a wonderful cat, who basically rules us – he suckered us in when he needed a new home. He has been dictating our existence ever since and we love him dearly for it.
We’ve also been the happy owners, co-owners and pet-sitters for other cats, dogs, gerbils, guinea pigs, mice, and some very lovely goldfish. One favourite memory is a German Shepard named Hoog, (he was huge) who bounded up and down the beach playing “Lets not come to lead, ‘cos you’re just the pet-sitter while my dad’s away”. He came back when we gave up accidentally ‘playing the game’ and we sat down [mostly out of desperation].
We hope you find these pages useful and hope you have much joy caring for your furry friends.
