One of my responsibilities is to look after Lynettea when we go out after dark for her walkies.
Humans can't see as well as cats in the dark.
They can't hear as well either. For example, I was inspecting one of my bushes planted in the neighbours garden near the footpath, when Lynettea was frightened by a bicycle rushing past her.
She jumped when she heard a twig snap, as it crunched under the bicycle wheel near where she was standing, admiring me. I was fully alert, of course and not at all startled.
I thought it best to take her inside after that, as she was complaining of being cold. I am quite warm.
She doesn't seem to be able to grow a winter coat.
She said, 'you are a good guide cat, Sasha.'
