Sgt Podge baffles owners


Cat's daily routine baffles owner
Quote:
Sgt Podge is collected between 0800 and 0815 GMT every day
Podge's daily ride
A cat is baffling his owner by wandering off at night before expecting to be collected by car every morning at exactly the same time and place.

Sgt Podge, a Norwegian Forest Cat, disappears from his owner's home in Talbot Woods, Bournemouth, every night.

The next morning, the 12-year-old cat can always be found in exactly the same place, on a pavement about one and a half miles (2.4km) away.

His owner, Liz Bullard, takes her son to school before collecting Sgt Podge.
She said the routine began earlier this year, when Sgt Podge disappeared one day.

Ms Bullard rang the RSPCA and began telephoning her neighbours to see if anyone had seen him.

An elderly woman who lived about one and a half miles away called back to say she had found a cat matching Sgt Podge's description.

Ms Bullard collected him but within days he vanished again. She rang the elderly woman to find Sgt Podge was back outside her home.

She said a routine has now become established, where each morning she takes her son to school before driving to collect Sgt Podge from the pavement between 0800 and 0815 GMT.

It is thought Sgt Podge walks across Meyrick Park Golf Course every night to reach his destination.

Ms Bullard said: "If it's raining he may be in the bush but he comes running if I clap my hands."

All she has to do is open the car passenger door from the inside for Sgt Podge to jump in.

Ms Bullard also makes the trip at weekends and during school holidays - when her son is having a lie in.

She does not know why, after 12 years, Sgt Podge has begun the routine but explained that another woman who lived nearby used to feed him sardines, and that he may be on the look-out for more treats.

"As long as you know where they are you don't mind as a cat owner," Ms Bullard said.

"I know where to collect him - as long as he's not wandering the streets."

Back at home, Sgt Podge has breakfast before going to sleep by a warm radiator.

Think of the petrol she'd save if she kept Sgt Podge indoors.

Dog Returns to Vet Who Neutered Him
From Associated Press
November 19, 2007 4:11 PM EST
JOPLIN, Mo. - It might be understandable for a dog to run away from a veterinary clinic where he had just been neutered. But a vet in Joplin said the reverse happened at his clinic last week.

Dr. Steve Walstad said a black mixed-breed dog named Radar was waiting outside his clinic on Nov. 11, three days after the dog's owner picked up his pet after surgery and several weeks of boarding.

Walsted said that in his 28-year career, he has never heard of a dog returning to a vet's office. Radar lived a mile from the clinic and had never traveled there on foot.

Walstad said Radar's owner had been looking for a new home for the dog and offered to let the vet keep him. So Walsted and his staff are building new sleeping quarters for the dog at the rear of the clinic.

Looking for his nuts.... "I'm sure I had'em when I arrived here. When I woke up they were gone! I'll just call and see if anyone has handed them in."
