Name: Hi my name is Rocky. I’m a pet rock!
How long have you lived there? For as long as I can remember. I think I’m pretty old. Mum says I’ve been passed down to her from her folks. I’m well
and truly part of the family.
What’s your favourite local hangout? I like to sit with the big rocks at the Manly harbour rock wall. It reminds me how big the world is! I also like listening to rock music at the Manly Deck. I also love browsing the fancy rocks at the Manly market stall on Sundays.
Your worst habit? Being so quiet that people forget about me!
What’s your favourite food? Ha ha. I don’t eat. I’m a cheap pet to own! I do like the occasional bath, though.
Do you have any embarrassing stories to tell? Well, not about me, but my folks once left me at the park after a picnic lunch. I was petrified! Some kids picked me up and put me on the park bench, and I was eventually reunited
when Dad found me – no trip to the vet required!
Name: Cymba Pattinson.
Suburb: Manly (aka God’s country).
How long have you lived here? From 2006 – 2007, then I left for a less superior area, but returned with vigor in 2015 and have ruled here ever since!
What’s your favourite local walk? C’mon guys, walks are for dogs. I move only when it suits!
Your most treasured toy? Ratty is as old as me. I’ve licked him and pounced on him for my whole life, plus I make a super weird noise when I carry him around.
What’s your favourite food? Tuna is da bomb! Open a can and I will come running from even the sneakiest hidey-hole! My servants/parents have been known to use this to trick me; looks like I’m not the only sneaky one.
Your worst habit? People say I have a superiority complex but what do they know?
Your favourite local hangout? Although I was born in Australia, my servants/parents believe I have English heritage as I love to lay down anywhere in the sun. I don’t leave the house much as the servants bring me all I need.
Who’s your best doggo friend? Andi Featherstone, the cocker spaniel from Buderim Street. I hiss at her but she’s my secret valentine.
Any funny or embarrassing stories you’d like to share? I licked and pounced on Ratty for so many years he had to have his head stitched on to a new identical Ratty. My parents think I don’t know but I’m not daft.
What do people love most about you? Everything. I’m a cat and we are the superior species.
