A PETA petition to stop a cattery project in Ipswich has over 6,000 signatures. PICTURES: File

More than 6,000 people have joined People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to voice their concerns about kitten breeding projects in Ipswich.

The owners of Karrabin Luxury Pet Resort, which have operated since the 1970s as a dog and cat kennel, submitted a development application earlier this year to Ipswich City Council, seeking permission to convert a shed into a cattery.

The application stated that “the cats are extremely quiet and unlikely to cause noise impacts” and that the breeding cattery would be fully enclosed to avoid any noise impact on surrounding properties.

According to the planning report, Ipswich City Council was “generally favourable” to the facility, provided it was located in an enclosed building, and had advised its opening hours to be between 7am and 7pm in weekdays and between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekends.

The PETA petition opposing the move urged the council to reject the plans on animal welfare grounds.

PETA’s senior communications adviser Emily Rice said thousands of caring people have already spoken and that Ipswich City Council should heed their animal welfare concerns.

“Approving a commercial kitten breeding facility at a time when Australians are increasingly choosing to adopt animals in need of loving homes from shelters is not a smart long-term investment for Ipswich or the UK. ‘State as a whole,’ she said.

“Compassion and logic must prevail.”

PETA said it would add more animals to “already overcrowded shelters” and increase the loss of wildlife that cats contribute to.

The petition was submitted to council during the public notice period.

Q) OUR cat hates going out. It’s like he’s agoraphobic.

I don’t want to force him, but surely, like us, he needs some fresh air. He just watches TV during the day, eats and sleeps.

Maggie O’Brien, Dundee

Sean says: Some cats are just house birds and don’t care about the outdoors.

From a solitary horse cat to an independent cat - your pet questions answered
From a crying Labrador to a sickly cat - your pet questions answered

With a little imagination, you can provide everything they need inside, including scratching posts, hiding places, climbing frames and tunnels.

Toys and playtime are important to encourage them to be active.

I wish I could be a cat – watch TV during the day, eat, sleep, have someone to cater to my every whim.

You have to admit he did.

Q) MY son’s one year old boxer, Georgie, has walked into the only large planter in the garden, which has small shrubs and bedding plants.

The rest of the garden is adorned and extended to the lawn. Georgie tried to eat some of the contents and my son is afraid to replant it in case any of them are poisonous.

Why is Georgie doing this and what can be done to stop him?

Vince Marsh, Ramsgate, Kent

Sean says: I’d say it’s due to a combination of boredom and mischief.

It’s fun to dig when you’re a dog. Why not redirect this behavior by giving Georgie a sand pit digging area?

Bury his toys in there, praise him for digging where he’s supposed to, and turn him away when he looks like he wants to dig up your planters.

Limit their access at first and use reward-based training. He’ll have the picture in no time.

Also see our tails.com blog for a list of harmful garden plants to avoid.

Q) Is it possible to train a rabbit to use a litter box? I’m thinking of having a pet rabbit, but would they be happier outdoors?

Lisa Downs, Brighton

Sean says: It’s not only possible, it’s actually quite easy. Rabbits are very clean creatures and like to leave their droppings in prominent places in neat piles to alert other rabbits to their presence.

On that note, it is always advisable to get two rabbits. They are social creatures and it’s really not fair to have just one.

Back to potty training. This is usually done by providing them with a cat litter box or box filled with digestible, rabbit-safe litter (just in case they chew on it).

Start by putting it in a corner of their small indoor enclosure. Once they get used to it, they will come back to it, even if they roam freely around the house.

Take care to protect the house from rabbits, including protecting wires they can chew on and lifting plants off the ground so they can’t eat them.

House rabbits do well as long as you allow them to do bunny things indoors. An outdoor track for supervised outdoor activities should also be provided if you have a garden.

Q) I would like to have two puppies but not at the same time – obviously for training reasons.

I am looking for an English bull terrier and a cockapoo. But which breed do we get first and how many months later should we introduce the other?

Tracy Jones, Crewe

Sean says: You are right to avoid having them at the same time.

They will focus little on you, paying more attention to each other. This is called litter mate syndrome, but it doesn’t have to be litter mates, just puppies of the same age.

They are also very different dogs to train and own, with English Bull Terriers arguably being more stubborn and more difficult for beginners.

Cockapoos have all the intelligence of poodles and the great energy of cocker spaniels, so you take a lot of them.

My advice would be cockapoo first, and think about a second once it’s settled and two years old or older.

ECHO the kitty found his purr after being rescued from an abandoned house with a horde of other cats.

The 16 month old boy was rescued by the RSPCA Headcorn Cattery in Kent and received a new home in Sevenoaks with Carrie Greenstreet, 45.

After seven months, Echo learned to be happy again. Carrie said: “Echo has just started purring as she is happy now after her difficult start to life.

“Because she was abandoned, it took her three months to learn to trust again and she’s still terrified of strangers, but Echo has become the most affectionate cat I’ve ever had.”

Seven-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier porridge was rescued after he gobbled down a pot of McDonald’s sweet and sour sauce while on a walk

Vets have issued a bedbug warning because they put pets and wildlife at risk of death and injury.

The RSPCA receives an average of ten calls a day for animals affected by litter.

Vets4Pets urges people to be careful where they put their waste when traveling.

Seven-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Porridge is the latest puppy to be rescued, after wolfing down a McDonald’s pot of sweet and sour sauce on a walk.

He was rushed to Vets4- Pets Hospital Barnsley in the south Yorkswhere the team first attempted to remove the packaging by inducing vomiting, before making the decision to perform an endoscopy.

Dr Caroline Richards, who led the team that rescued him, said: ‘It’s lucky Porridge’s owner spotted him eating the wrapper.

“If it hadn’t been for a local bug, Porridge might have avoided his trip to see us.

I am a mother of 3 children - we have had no heating for 7 weeks following a meter error from the supplier
Drivers are AMAZED at the button

“We hope her story shows how dangerous litter can be for pets and makes people think twice about littering.”

According to Caroline, it’s far from the strangest object the veterinary team has seen eating a dog, adding: Christmas from balls to children’s toys, and even underwear, we’ve seen it all »

By Mike Watkins / Special for Paradise Pet Suites

Elkhorn’s Paradise Pet Suites prides itself on making sure furry family members – from dogs to hedgehogs – enjoy the conveniences and pleasures of being away from home when their owners are.

It’s a principle and a goal that founders Kathy and Tom Brazer employed early in their nearly 30-year history.

It’s also something they hope whoever replaces them when they decide to sell and move on to the next chapter – hopefully in the not too distant future – will adopt and maintain.

“We’ve always loved animals, but after 30 years it’s time for us to take the next step in our lives,” said Kathy, who grew up playing vet with her stuffed animals as a child.

“If we were 30 years younger, we wouldn’t consider selling. We love it so much.

The Brazers started Paradise Pet Suites in 1993 after years of breeding and showing Toy Poodles in American Kennel Club (AKC) shows.

It turned into a dog boarding business, and when customers saw the incredible care their pets received, word spread quickly. The clientele grows and, over time, the company expands.






Dog houses are designed with different levels of care and care, depending on the needs of the animals and the desires of their owners.


PARADISE SUITES FOR PETS


Today, Kathy describes Paradise Pet Suites as a “mid-sized” luxury kennel with a maximum capacity of 70 dogs and dozens of cats in their cattery. They also provide grooming services.

With a background in interior design and a sense of comfort, Kathy has designed homes for animals – dogs in particular – with varying levels of care and care based on the animals’ needs and their owners’ desires.

“If their pets live very comfortably at home, we want them to be just as comfortable at Paradise Pet Suites; it’s a hotel-like environment,” Kathy said. “That means they stay in one of our executive suites which include upholstered furniture, televisions, mood lighting, a mobile hanging from the ceiling, and artwork, among other amenities,” he said. she declared.

“Animals have different adaptations to their environment – ​​chewing, digging, etc. – out of frustration and fear. So we want to give them an environment similar to what they have at home.

Paradise Pet Suites also offers junior dog suites with white barriers and only 4-5 dogs per room.

“We separate living quarters and walk them around at different times of the day to limit fights and mixing,” Kathy said. “Rooms are always clean and odor free. We pay particular attention to it. »

With three children living in the US, Kathy said she and Tom have no local heirs to leave the business to – but they want to leave it in good hands when they’re ready to sell.

She said they were accepting the offers and expected to move on to their next adventure – traveling abroad, gardening (Kathy is a serious gardener) and visiting their children and grandchildren – next year.

“We’ve always enjoyed running the business as a family without the bureaucracy that weighs us down and the ability to make decisions that we know are best for our customers and for us,” she said. “We have a very loyal staff that we have embraced and cherished, great loyal customers and, of course, we love animals.

“But it’s time to explore what lies ahead next. We have given so much of our life and time to this endeavor, and we will miss it, but we are ready.

The NWSPCA is calling on members of the public to contact them first if they need help with their pets after two cats and their litters were thrown into their center in sealed plastic boxes.

In two separate incidents in recent weeks, NWSPCA volunteers discovered the mother cats and kittens tightly packed into plastic crates left in the parking lot. The first incident saw two adults and ten kittens dumped at the scene, while the second involved two adults and four kittens.

While the cats are now in foster homes and doing well, NWSPCA President Joe Murray said the outcome could have been very different.

“It was an extremely hot day when the first two sets were left. They weren’t left at the cattery, they were left in the parking lot, and it was only by chance that one of us noticed the boxes and decided to look inside, otherwise they probably wouldn’t have survived the night in this heat,” he explained.

Discarding cats in this way is “unacceptable”, added Joe, who said it significantly hampers the support they are able to offer other people and animals.

“We are trying to help as many people as possible at the moment, but we have limited resources, so we have a waiting list. We only have a certain free space for semi-feral or feral cats. What this behavior does for us is primarily allows those who dump cats to skip the queue.This means that people who work with us and need help with their own cats are pushed away. further and that we delay their help. This could lead to us having to make very difficult decisions and reject people who do things the right way,” he said. “Dumping cats like this is selfish of people because they don’t give us a choice.

These cats were probably fine where they were. They could have stayed there for another week or so and we would have helped out with food and crates and taken them away when we had room. Instead, these people force us to take them to the cattery. That’s not the answer. The answer is to contact us and work with us.

Mild weather and the ensuing extended cat breeding season, coupled with a drop in foster families and volunteers due to the return to school and offices, are already putting pressure on the organization. said Joe, who said this dumping behavior adds to that pressure.

“It’s not acceptable. It takes a huge amount of resources and time and we just need it to stop,” he continued. “We haven’t had to say no to anyone yet, but if it keeps happening, that might be what we need to do.

Much of this abandonment behavior stems from people not neutering or neutering their cats, said Joe, who stressed the importance of doing so in order to control cat populations.

“We run a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program and try to help people do that, but the biggest problem is that people just want the cats gone. It doesn’t really work. If we sterilize them and sterilize them and don’t send them back into space, something else will set in whereas if we sterilize them and send them back, they won’t continue to reproduce and they will also prevent other cats to settle down,” he said. said.

Keeping feral cat populations under control also helps keep feral and domestic cats healthy, he said.

“There’s an awful virus going around called panleukopenia and as soon as the population hits a particular level, that virus flares up. It affects both domestic and feral cats and it’s deadly. It can knock a cat out for six hours in 24 hours.”

Those who need help with their cats, are interested in the TNR program or would like to volunteer for the organization can contact the NWSPCA hotline on 087 639 2531.

Dozens of dogs have been found in a ‘terribly tragic condition’ after investigators raided a ‘pseudo puppy farm’ in Poland following a whistleblower from concerned locals.

Animal Welfare Society inspectors were called to the squalid breeding kennels in the Środa Wielkopolska region, where they found sick and starving puppies, and their mothers covered in feces.

Others were invaded by parasites “attacking their hearts and lungs”.

The dogs had been left to fend for themselves and had gathered what little strength they had left to greet their rescuers, who took pictures of the scene.

More than 35 dogs have been found in a ‘terribly tragic condition’ after investigators raided a ‘pseudo puppy farm’ in Poland following a tip-off from locals. Pictured: Two dogs are seen after rescuers arrived at the farm. On the left, a god can barely open his infested eyes. On the right, a straight, black mongrel gazes solemnly through the bars of the cage

Their heartbreaking images showed the dogs crammed into small, damp, dark metal cages to keep them locked up. The animals looked unloved, unfed, unwashed and could barely open their infested eyes.

Some were in cages with several other dogs, and items that could be dangerous to the animals — such as broken plastic boxes and metal chains — were strewn about.

A spokesman for the Animal Welfare Society said the farm was a tragic example of what the “production” of cheap puppies looks like.

“The measure of a man is how he treats those weaker than himself,” the spokesperson said. “Today’s intervention showed that man is capable of anything.

“Thirty-eight dogs of varying ages were rescued in tragic condition – sick, bitten, borderline exploited, smelly, clipped, dewormed female dogs.”

The company spokesman said: ‘The animals were dirty and you could see they weren’t being fed. The owner of the pseudo-breeding farm didn’t even understand why we were there. This is what the “production” of cheap puppies looks like.

“Four puppies were removed from the owner and placed in the care of veterinarians.

“It turned out that some of them have internal parasites that have already started attacking the heart and lungs.”

The owner of the kennel is currently under investigation by local police.

Posting on social media, the Animal Welfare Society spokesperson said: “The most important thing now is to get the dogs back to health.”

Since ancient times, people have had special feelings for cats. It is these supple and graceful, fluffy and warm creatures that bring joy and peace. In recent years, for people, cats have become not only a source of warmth and comfort, but also a sign of status, whether a cat or a cat is an elite breed. In addition, a purebred cat is an expensive and valuable gift. Therefore, cat breeding is not just a pleasant hobby. If you approach this business wisely, such a business can bring real benefits.

If you love cats so much that you’re willing to spend a significant amount of your time with them, it makes sense to start a cat breeding business. Indeed, from the outside it seems that this business can be quite profitable, since thoroughbred cats with good pedigrees are in high demand and, therefore, expensive. The cost of a kitten ranges from one hundred to ten thousand dollars.

Where to start

Choose several races and study them in detail. It will be good to buy books on your chosen breed. Carefully review all sources, both literary and electronic. Breed Selection Checklist:

  • Standard settings;
  • Genetics (use cat breed test kit);
  • Food regulation (for example, sphinxes need special food due to their increased metabolism);
  • Bathing, brushing, the appearance of teeth, claws, etc.

Buy kittens for breeding

Animals need to get used to you from the start, and they need to be educated, and at a young age they absorb training better. For breeding you should buy only in elite catteries. Kittens must have documents (pedigree, veterinary certificate, etc.). To avoid any mishaps, take a breed expert with you, he will help you determine whether the kittens and parents have any appearance defects, which could affect future offspring (your own knowledge is certainly good, but two heads , it’s better).

If you manage to find a pet without flaws, you can safely attend the show. After all, these animals are classy! Cups, medals, rosettes and letters of recommendation are not only nice souvenirs, but also reasons to increase the price of a litter of kittens.

Cat care

What goes into the cost of keeping cats? You will need to consider the costs below for 10 pairs.

Quality food. The food can be industrial, natural or mixed. Industrial power will require a significant expense. The quality of the feed affects the quality of the offspring and the health of the parents themselves, so it is worth using the proven premium feed, on which you should not skimp.

Grooming products. Proper care of animal fur requires high quality shampoos and combs. This is especially true for long-haired breeds.

Medicines and prophylaxis. Every pet needs periodic treatment for fleas and worms. Vaccinations are a separate expense item and you will need to obtain a veterinary passport. Vaccinations are done from 2 months and 3 times during the kitten’s first year of life. There will also be a cost for medication and veterinary services if the cat is sick.

game environment. Your pet may need small toys, and if desired, you can build or purchase a complete play complex. It also makes sense to buy dog ​​beds, cat houses and kennels.

sell kittens

There are several ways to advertise that you have purebred kittens and want to sell them.

  • bulletin boards;
  • Newspapers and magazines;
  • cat shows;
  • forums;

The most expensive, but most effective way to sell. On your site, you have the possibility to write to all your contacts, to say more about your breeding, to publish all kinds of photos of your kittens. The kitten must be prepared for the sale, he must “understand” what life in an apartment is like, know the litter box, and it makes sense to develop a diet for him.

Conclusion

If you are ready to invest effort and money in this business and have deep knowledge in this field, you have a chance to recoup all the investments. However, this investment is risky, as the profits may not match the wishes of the kennel owner due to the lack of collateral.

Editor’s note:

We value animal-related establishments because they give us the opportunity to interact with our favorite animals – and as animal lovers, we cannot ignore the ethical issues surrounding this. From pet cafes to pet shops and catteries, there is a wide range of ethical animal welfare concerns, such as the treatment of animals or ethical breeding in pet shops and catteries.

As we share some great pet cafes, pet shops and catteries to visit, we urge everyone to treat these animals gently, and if you have seen any signs that the animals are not being well taken care of, please let us know. report it immediately. If you are considering getting a pet, we also encourage you to consider adoption options first if possible. There are lots of adorable animals waiting for good homes in places like SoSD, Cat welfare societyand the SPCA!
