Queensland floods

January 30th, 2011

Farm floodWe would just like to say thankyou to all of our owners and even strangers who have expressed their concern for us in recent weeks.  Fortunately we were spared flooding in January’s terrible events as we are located on the Northern end of the Gold Coast.

The response of Australians and those across the world has been overwhelming and much progress has been made in recovering and repairing from the disaster across Queensland.  However, there is still a long way to go.  We have received no reports of Catahoulas being victims to this disaster although there are many other animals of all shapes and sizes and people aswell who still need your support and assistance.

If you would like to help please consider making a monetary donation to any of the following organisations:

www.littlepawskittenrescue.com.au Little Paws is a volunteer organisation that are currently in the process of organising accommodation for a large number of flood victim cats currently in pounds and at risk of euthanasia.  They urgently need funds for this mass undertaking.

www.rspca.org.au Australia’s RSPCA shelter at Fairfield was devastated in the floods and they urgently need funds to repair their facilities and continue providing their essential services.

www.brisbanevalleycatrescue.com The Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue are at capacity and need funds to continue providing help.

www.vinnies.org.au St Vincent De Paul charity need monetary donations.

www.lifeline.org.au Lifeline also need monetary donations.

Currant’s Jet doin it big in the cape

January 25th, 2011

Joy and EarlLast year Currant’s Jet (from Oak Run’s Cayo Conch line) left us and headed off with Mick to the Cape where he lives and works to hunt 3-4 times a week.  Having lost Currant’s Earl (pictured) to a snake bite last year, Mick was keen for another Currant Cat and a companion for Currant’s Joy who was missing her best mate.

So far, Jet has been coming along well and is finding boars by himself.  Mick’s hoping that if Jet is half as good as Earl was, then he’ll still be a fantastic dog.
