Inseparable pals need Christmas carer
■ SAFE Karratha is urging residents staying in town for Christmas to make it a special one for two furry best friends, including a dog that was one of the service’s first rescues.
SAFE founder Sue Hedley said 12-year-old dog Bundy and sixyear-old cat Sparkie were inseparable, having shared a long history together and with SAFE, before they arrived at her door last week.
“Bundy was one of our first dogs we adopted out when SAFE started and I feel like he’s come back to me to spend his last bit of time,” she said. “He and Sparkie were given together and they’ve been together six years.
“They both kept going back to the street where they used to live together and trying to find each other there.”
She described Sparkie as friendly and confident and Bundy as loving, easygoing and fond of cats.
“I feel like he’s looking at the cats here, looking for Sparkie,” she said. “So he’s meant to be with this cat.”
Ms Hedley said finding someone to mind the two has become urgent as Sparkie’s current carer is leaving town before Christmas.
She also wants to make sure the elderly Bundy is well cared for and with his best feline friend on what is likely to be his last Christmas.
“I don’t want Sparkie to go and sit in a cattery,” she said. “I want the two of them to spend their last Christmas together.
“We just want a place the two can be together. It won’t necessarily be a huge commitment, but just for now.”
