I have urban foxes in my garden and I put out cat food for them in winter. I also leave a bowl of water out for the local wildlife because they get dehydrated and there is no where around here where foxes, hedgehogs etc can drink.

I can never be sure that the local cats did not eat the cat food I left for the foxes in winter and there are a lot of "outside" cats. No dogs - its a Moslem area and they consider dogs unclean.

I had a jay on the flat roof this morning, sounded like herding elephants. Nowhere near as charming as a peacock though.

Perhaps you can explain to the Muslims in my family who have all got dogs as pets and have had pet dogs right from being children. ??? ??? ???

Must be Indian Indians crabby. Or maybe only full Indians. My neighbour had an Indian mother and he has 3 greyhounds. It used to be 4 but one had big health problems and had to be put down recently.

Supporting leave is not racism. Don't let others suggest it is.

My guess is a cultural thing depending from where a Muslim person comes from.  Did look it up and seems some say OK some don't.  As if Allah a supreme being  gives a damn if you have a dog or not.

This appears to explain it.

I don't believe in any of the mumbo jumbo of any religion, God, Jehova, Allah Yarwe?  (Jesus was a man, I think, any biblical scholars to tell me different?)

I know of muslims who will have nothing to do with dogs and think they are dirty animals.  I also have a member of my family through marriage, who is muslim and has a dog as a family pet.

I always thought the difference was Sunni didn't and Shia did ?  :):):) so thanks for that Phil, very interesting.
