Cat – This post is part of SoCS


SoCS badge 2015

I have been busy for a while and it absolutely not ended yet. As you may know, I would like to move closer to my daughter, as lives in Germany. It is never free to move and to move so far away, from Spain to Germany is expensive. I’m still saving for this movement, as I also have both of my old cats at now 12 years old and Odin at 2½ years old.

Just to find a new house here, where I am allowed to have both my cats and Odin is a challenge. In Germany it is even more difficult, because many don’t like to rent out to both foreigners and to people with pets.

My next challenge is, that I need to find a new house and that very soon. My contract here ends 31. of December this year and it is not possible to renew the contract, because the house is close to sold.

I do really wish to find a house in an area like this, close to both beach and nature areas, where I will be allowed to walk with Odin also. I love to end our walks by the beach. I need to find a house with garden, because my old cats are used to be able to get outdoor in daytime and they do really cry, when this is not possible. I will not let them down, they have been there for me in so many years and so many different life situations. They deserves to be able to get out in a garden. Most of all they enjoy just to watch the birds and the dragons in the garden. They don’t hunt so much any longer, mostly butterflies, but they love to stay outdoor and I wish to keep them safe in same time.

It would be different, if I had indoor cats, which I had as a kid living in a big city, where it was dangerous to live outdoor as a cat. Indoor cats are more easy to move with, they just demand a nice place with soft resting places and great view from the windows to follow life outdoor.

Many years ago I needed to move from a house to an apartment with my cat. She was used to live outdoor and this was not possible for a while. This went not good. I don’t wish to repeat this situation.

My cats deserves to live a good pensioner life in love and with access to a garden. Otherwise I will destroy their life quality and this I don’t wish to.

When we take cats and dogs into our household, we also need to think in their needs, which make the movings to a bigger challenge, but not impossible, it just takes more time to find the right place to live.

What do you do, when you need to move with your animals?

Sunset & Life in Spain – 6 Photos

The autumn did also come to Spain. As you can see here, not all look like the clearly blue sky, as we are used to see. This sunset I found a little unusual and wished to show you

Few days ago we had fullmoon again. In the evening there were too many clouds to see the fullmoon, but very clearly in the morning

Odin enjoy his nice walks, where he get a lot of time to run without his lead. I’m grateful, that it was possible to learn Odin not to hunt the rabbits, as we have millions of here. Many of them are sick and he is feeded very well at home and doesn’t need to hunt his own food, like many others are.

My heart is crying for so many other dogs, as we have met lately here. Abandoned dogs by different excuses, as just get their freedom in the nature and then are expected to be able to take care of themselves or find themselves a new home. We have through the last two weeks met 7 dogs without a collar and without an owner. Some of them are friendly and others very scared.

It is not allowed to put animals to sleep here in Spain. Only the vet can decide, if this is the last way. In one way, this secure many animals to the chance to survive, but in another way, it lets many animals starve to death or by sickness to death.

In my time here I have seen hunters with many dogs for each hunter. They are not free to have. You need to chip and vaccinate all by the law. Then you need to be able to feed them and take care of them. If the hunters family don’t have too much money, the dog will often become to set free after the hunting season. Many families are starving or only have to feed the humans, many only the kids. In these families the dogs have the risk to be set free, as people here see it. The dog gets another chance, if someone will take the dog and take care.

Among the free dogs I have met at my walks with Odin, it was easy to see, that some of them have been beaten up. They have deep and old scares. Some of them are brave enough to come and say hello to us and others run very fast away, scared for more beaten up. There are good people and bad people all over. Some should not be allowed to have either animals or kids ever. They don’t understand their responsibility for anything.

I love animals and to see this kind of cruelty are very tough. I really wish, that I could do more, than I’m able to. In this cases I try to remember H.H. Dalai Lama’s words: If you can’t help, at least don’t hurt.

I love my old cats, as are 12 years now and I really try my best to give them space to be the cats, as they wish to be. They cry to get outside in daytime, sometimes 5 minutes other times for hours. They are neutred many years ago and don’t run far away, but they really love to stay in the garden at the grass and crawl in our big tree. Hunting what they can gives them good excersize. They rarely catch anything, but try and get to use their senses.

They have raised Odin to be a kind dog to both them and to other cats. As you might know, cats are not very sensitive in their way of raising. They use their nails to show, what they mean. Odin learned to be very fast to move his head, which is very smart 😀

I believe, that animals have souls and their own personality. Short time ago I wrote with another blogger in here and she mentioned, that many still don’t think, that dogs have a soul. For me this is more than a bad excuse for treating the animals in a not good way.

How are animals treated where you live in our world?
