Yoggie


Here is Yoggie doing one of his favorite things, walking on the fence.  There are two very nice videos of his fence-walking abilities here.  Yoggie was named after a yoghurt made with wild strawberries that his Mom and Dad really like.  He was adopted from a shelter in Germany in 2006, but now lives in Sweden.  He really likes the bigger house and garden.  The only problem is that the house where they live now used to belong to a couple of cats who now live next door.  They still think of the garden as theirs and Yoggie has had several fights with them.  Unfortunately one of the two cats, the white one, has now run away and Yoggie feels bad about that.  Hopefully someone has taken him in and he is safe now.  Yoggie likes to play tennis with his toy mousies.  He loves hunting bugs and birds in his garden.  He has even made friends with a hedgehog who came to visit.  Yoggie and Gretchen write poetry to one another as they conduct a long-distance romance.  It is really very sweet.

                                              Yoggie really likes to walk on the fence,
                                              Though seeing him there makes his Mom wince.
                                                             He balances fine
                                                             As he walks the line.
                                              Yoggie is really good at walking the fence.
