Mega pets: Rangi the lanky teen
Mega pets: Not just big boned
My gentle giant, Rangi, featured in this assignment last year.
He is now nearly two-years-old, weighs about seven kilograms and is still growing.
You can think of him as a lanky 17-year-old boy... probably fully grown as far as height is concerned, but still some filling out to do.
He will probably weight about 10kg when fully grown.
Because he is so big, we can't use a normal cat carry cage, so we have trained him to accept a harness and lead.
Rangi and I are now accredited Outreach Therapy Pet visitors and we will often visit pet shops on the way home from visits. When we go places he is a real show stopper and frequently mistaken for being a dog... or a lion!
