I'm looking for a small bird, something similar to a parakeet (I'm unfamiliar with the breeds available here). Can anyone recommend a good place to find one in the Cannes/Le Cannet area, where a small bird won't cost a small fortune? I was fortunate enough to find a reasonably-priced cage here on AI and would like to get a bird for hubby's b-day. We always 'birdiesit' thru the month of August and really miss the beautiful singing in the mornings. A great way to start the day! Alternatively, has anyone got one they'd like to find a good home for? Thanks all! -Kim
We have a Gecko that has decided to live in our shed. Anyone know how we can get him out? We emptied the shed, swept his pooh up and tried blocking the holes up when we thought he was out. But he has still got in there again. We don't really want to leave him there all summer until we go back in october as it could start smelling with the hot sun on the shed. Any ideas?
I can't believe it ...that awful circus that was in Cannes has returned to Antibes...it's horrific to see those animals in their cages...last time they were in cannes they were keeping a hippo on dried cement in the boiling heat.... My blood just boils. Last night some friends of mine were beaten with iron bars near one of the circus tents...the doctor at the hospital says she thinks they must have been mistaken for animal activists.............. is there nothing that can be done about these animals. I feel sick to my stomach thinking of the suffering they must have to endure. Katherine
I am collecting our puppy tomorrow, and have down loaded lots of information on caring and training the pup, from a fantastic site from the blue cross. But it doesn't go into great detail about feeding, I have bought puppy complete food, and know they have to have lots of water with this, but can he eat our left overs. He is a French hunting dog, and roughly 10 weeks old. Really kind of you to help Debbie.
Hi there! Does anyone know if there is anyway to stop my cats scratching furniture to bits?! They have vast amounts of space outside, but insist on coming in to have a good scratch... No amount of telling off helps, they just do it when my back is turned... I know you cant really train cats, but is there some smell that might deter them? Tx

Hello, My wife Marilyn is planning to do French classes at Alliance Francaise in Nice in January or February. She will need someone to look after our one year old poodle (Rocky) in the mornings. He is very friendly and likes other dogs. He needs company and we cannot leave him on his own. Marilyn could drop him and collect him, or rendezvous with you. We would of course pay for this service. The course starts at 9am finishes at 1pm Monday to Friday. Is anyone able to help with this? Thanks Hugh (Mobile: +44 791 8164016)

Have you always wished you could have your own horse but the vastness of such an undertaking fill you with misgivings? I would like to take another horse in livery so to speak, a symbiotic arrangement here where we live in good riding countryside. We live close to the A8 motorway, and yet far enough out to have great riding. We already have two happy forward going Spanish mix geldings . They are adapted to living out with a very comprehensive three sided shelter ..on wood chipped night paddock and hillside freedom in the day, with room to express themselves and gallop if they wish.. We clean the night paddock area of manure and have two boxes for extreme weather. This manner of keeping horses 'climatised' is the way they are kept the world over, and seems to be the preferred method of this region with the rural people we know.. and works very well for the animals themselves. V I have for ten years offered riding to an established group of friends who donate towards the cost of their keep (per ride, so no set amount or obligation).. and our friendly symbiotic group keep them well excersised.Insurance is easy to cover here with the French system of renewable 'licence' like a driving licence but no exam to take! which covers the rider and the horse alike for the nominal fee of 45€ a year. However my dear little horse is getting on. While I keep an eye out for new friends to join our group as a rider all the time, as everyone is busy and have differing schedules, I am also putting out feelers to find someone to bring me one more horse to join this contented situation.. so that Leo can take only my smaller friends. Would it interest you ?able to ride when you like, and enjoy the countryside here, and also give the horse balanced Equine company in a spacious environment with level headed care and enough excersise when one works or travels, as we do. In return for eventually sharing your horse with myself /and.. at your discretion of course, your selected ( mostly English speaking ) our riders whome you might ride your horse ,with and get to know..I would be asking a very low livery fee into the bargain, just enough to cover feed and more manure collecting.. Im a great believer in voice and the phone, so please id be happy to speak on the phone with you and answer questions or queries or even simply an 'I wish chat!' or if you'd like to join my team of riders.. I speak fluent French and my hubby if french, we live near the St.Tropez-turn-off from the A8, Exit 36 which , though a little way from all that calls itself 'La cote D'azur' is worth the distance for the symbiotic, trust related, un-complicated and uncostly ridng situation we have going here.. where horses are happy. I can supply photos and
