Looking out for Sandy
IT’S been nice to read a bit about Sandy Cat from other people.
He is such a character and I have loved getting to know him through my year working from Prince’s Wharf next to Cafe 3.nineteen.
We hang out almost every day, he sometimes lays on the desk right in the place where the keyboard is supposed to be, and demands my attention while purring like a steam engine.
Other days he’s too cool for school and won’t come near me for a pat. He’s a very entertaining distraction. I was wondering if anyone out there was taking ultimate responsibility for his well-being?
Someone out there has taken the time to register him with Cairns Regional Council and to put a collar on him. Is that person still in the area? He is getting on in years and with the waterfront project moving forward pretty soon things might get a little unsettling for the little fella. It’d be nice to know someone special has got his back.
If anyone knows anything, could you let us (3.nineteen staff and/or me) know? country away.
And it has North Queenslanders grumbling, as many were caught unaware this was coming.
It was frustrating to read how the gift of many thousands of hectares of land still does not please the indigenous elders, now they want funding to set up businesses.
How about going to the bank for a loan, like any non-indigenous business has to do.
Why should the Government put up millions of our taxpayer dollars to set up new indigenous businesses that will compete for the tourist dollar with nonindigenous businesses that struggle to meet their loan repayments to the banks?
