Chilliwack, British Columbia
Ernie came to work at Bosley's
pet store in Chilliwack, BC, in June of 1999. He was one of 32 Ocicats brought
in to a nearby vet by a breeder who was in over his head. Ernie was 3 at the
time and the only kitty who had any sort of ailment (he has a slight respiratory
problem). The Bosley's manager liked him and brought him back to the shop.
Ernie loves kids and dogs. When a dog comes into the store, Ernie will run
over and rub back and forth and try to play with the dog. It doesn't matter
what size the dog is. He's even been bitten by a dog once and he still loves
them. Ernie is a terrific jumper and was showing off for us when we were there.
He has a special toy on a string he likes. He'll also play tug of war and
fetch. Ernie also likes to go outside. (They have to let him out on his harness
or he won't stop yowling!) He can't go far though, because Ernie gets lost.
He has no sense of direction.
