Rosa Stewart, from Stokes Valley, is the proud mum of Tazzy.
"Yesterday I was doing my usual stalking of the backyard birds with my camera behind my washing line as they were flying in for their daily feed of the seed that I had just thrown on the lawn and wondered why they just suddenly all flew off in all directions! What had scared them off was the sight of this magnificent but rotound feline lurking quite near by.
She is very much a Jeckyll and Hyde character, very friendly when she is tucked up with me at night and just loves having her belly rubbed. But outside she runs away when approached and totally disappears when friends or family drop in for a coffee!"
We wouldn’t change her for the world!Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on email@example.com with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.
