Have read quite a few conflicting stories about renting if you have pets. So we are not sure whether to take our dogs with us or send them to France to live with my sister and send for them when we have bought somewhere probably 6 months to a year after we arrive. By that time my sister and her husband will probably not want to part with them
She really hates cats and will definitely not look after thomas for us but have read some worrying stories about cats in Oz and don't know what to do with him. He is 9 years old with pins in his legs (has been run over twice) but he absolutely hates being enclosed, whether its in a cat carrier, the cattery or even in the house. He is a hunter and always has been. He has brought home a few 'presents' for us and once regurgetated a blackbird on the landing carpet .
I have heard that in Oz cats are supposed to be kept indoors and not allowed to roam or they could get sent to the pound. He is definitely not an indoor cat and would hate it if he couldn't go outside. He is so friendly and wonders in and out of a few of my neighbours homes but I realise that not everyone likes cats and if he did that in Oz he might be classed as a nuisance.
Am I worrying for nothing or would it be kinder to leave him at home where one of the neighbours would be happy to have him.
Is there any kind of law in Adelaide that states exactly what cat owners are expected to do?
