Several of my friends have lost pets to poison, both dogs and cats. We have both. The Dog normally only goes out on a lead. The cats are collared to show they are not feral, but pets. The trouble is poison is indiscriminate.

Feral cats are BTW a big problem.

Thanks a a ton everyone. Feel a bit better now, and thanks for the safety comments too although I really wasn't worried.

Now to pick a school, an area to live and get balls rolling!

If you are looking at Areas We are very happy in Limassol. It is very well situated to get to most parts of the unoccupied zone inside two hours. You are about halfway between the two legal airports (about 45 m drive to either) and have the beach and mountains, as well as shops, etc.

As long as your pets do not annoy your neighbours, they should be safe. :wink:

The retired ex-pat brigade have too much time to blame Cypriots for all manner of ills, even when their dogs die from eating grape-droppings, onion-laden meals, being kept in cars or from snake bites - and of course, occasionally, you get the mad farmers who lay rat poison to protect their grain and crops .... BUT .... deliberate poisoning? Well, no one does it with more style, aplomb and .... not just on stray moggies being pesty ... nope ... pedigree champions ....for the cruelest behaviour look no further than .... CRUFTS! (But, be quick, GB hushes things up quickly )


A championship dog dies of suspected poisoning after appearing at the world's top dog show. Now a second dog is reported dead and Crufts is facing an onslaught of criticism. Is the event in crisis or does the pet-loving public really understand the world of canine competition?

Jagger the three-year-old Irish Setter came second in his class but died shortly after returning home to Belgium, where post-mortem results suggest meat in his stomach had been laced with slug killer.

Now organisers have confirmed they are examining reports a second competitor, a shih tzu, died following the event, with its owner claiming suspected poisoning.

The Kennel Club says it is also looking into newspaper reports several other dogs, including a West Highland white terrier and an Afghan hound, fell ill after the show.

However, allegations of foul play are not the only controversial events to rock Crufts 2015.

The moment a dog owner appeared to remove the event's ultimate winner from the podium by the throat and tail - moments after it was crowned Best in Show - sparked outrage among dog lovers.

Really sorry to hear of the death of these beautiful dogs at the hands of the 'professional' world ... and I have nothing but distaste for the handler who I also noted being cruel and should be banned!
