Pets Corner August 09

Pets Corner August 09 Image

When the DCN called to photograph the domestic short hair (with a touch of Burmese), he decided he didn’t want to co-operate.

Kitty snacks and toys couldn’t get his attention.  Calling and pleading didn’t work.  He was oblivious to the fact that both Joseph and DCN had better things to do (work for example). 

No Pesto, you really are a pest.

But despite his shortcomings, Pesto is loved and spoiled by Joseph.

Joseph said Pesto loved to chase and fetch, much like a dog.  But unlike a dog, Pesto will only do it when he pleases.

“He needs to be in the mood to play fetch and if he’s not in the mood he’ll say ‘oh, not now’,” Joseph said.

Two-and-a-half-year-old Pesto was bought from the RSPCA as a kitten and has lived in Joseph’s Watergate apartment all his life.

Joseph lives alone and says cats make ideal companions.

“They’re more independent than dogs and less fuss.  They’re self-cleaning and self-feeding,” he said.

“Pesto likes to help with the cooking, much to the dismay of my friends who don’t believe he should be up on the bench.”
