Pet Tip

Pet Servals – Pet tip 208

There are millions and millions of cat lovers across North America and this is because cats make great pets. In general they are easier to take care of than dogs and much more independent than dogs. They are normally affectionate, cuddly, cute, they don’t eat that much and they don’t put too many demands on their owners. In terms of pleasing our human senses, house cats come in different breeds with different shapes, colours, fur lengths and personalities. But what if you want something a little different, more unique? What if you want a different type of cat, maybe a much larger cat? If you have a flair for the exotic you might consider getting a serval.

Servals are slowly becoming more popular as pets. Servals look like cheetahs but they are much smaller. They typically weigh anywhere from 20-40 pounds depending on their sex (males are heavier) and ancestry. Their body length is anywhere from 2-3 feet and they are about 2 feet tall. The come from Africa and still roam wild in many rural places. They are also slowly starting to become more known as house-pets but they are still quite rare and not for everyone.

Phineas and Gussie are brothers named after the characters in Tom Stoppard's play, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead.   They were born among many other feline families in a barn but were abandoned  by their mother after some hay bales nearby were moved.  When their prospective owner was picking out two kittens from the many kittens she asked me, "What do you think about these two?"  I said, "They're perfect."  And they are. They were so small they had golf ball sized heads and  would suck and knead our necks.
About PHINEAS Rosencrantz: a.k.a. Phoo

will reach out with his paw and tap me as I walk by.  His gentle way of saying Hi and tranferring me to the now, this moment. 

is very curious and as a kitten he would tip over cups of coffee and glasses of milk in his attempt to discover their contents. Now he tends to dip his paw into the liquid and then lick it off his paw.

is a very attentive assistant.  He stayed with me the whole time while I was replacing a faucet.  He intently watched me, sending me encouraging vibes, and would occasionally walk through the project making sure I was on the right track using the right tools. 

He loves studying physics (just like Rosencrantz) and enjoys doing gravity experiments like pushing things (earrings, watches, glasses, coins) off surfaces.
About GUSSIE Guildenstern:

He is the younger of the two and "de baby of da family."  He has a hard time waking up and tends to be the last one down for dinner, slowing walking in with his half-closed eyes blinking.

He is the best hunter of the family and the most athletic.  He has worked a hole in the window screen to the point he can now walk through it.  He likes to go in and out and in and out and in and out and in.
