My family once had a cat that went missing for two years then turned up in the garden all of a sudden again.
We also had one that used to sit on your face to try and wake you up and once brought a frog in to my bed - it was still alive - and another that's favourite food was cheese and onion crisps and 'spoke' like Charlie (you know, Charlie says preeeoowmewmeow).

I love to hear about cats and their endearing qualities. I had a ginger Tomcat called 'GingGing' some years ago and still miss him - he was a sedate character who liked to conform and was an utter gentleman until it came to birds (the feathered kind that is) the kitten never died in him in that respect and housemartins were a favourite (he'd bring them to me as a present) and look on glumly as I'd recoil from the bloodied tweetie-pie.

Now I live in a flat I don't like to own one as it seems unfair (if 'own' is quite the right words anyway). These creatures need the great outdoors and adventure.

Our cat decide that it was time to stir up the 2 canaries. We heard this terrible crash the other night, the cat sent the cage flying, luckily there were no casualties but it sure gave her a nasty fright.

To RaRa: I live in a flat. over 80% of the population here live in flats and many of these flat dwellers have cats. For me I give my cat plenty of toys and take her out for a walk once a week. I think cats can be alright without the great outdoors and adventure...? I spent my first 16 years in a house with a large front yard and my (then) cat would stalk birds and I would spoil it for him by warning the bird with some noise. But he was successful at times judging from the mess of feathers left behind.

Cats are so interesting ... all these interesting cat tales.

Do your cats meow and yawn at the same time? Mine starts to meow then the yawn comes and the meow goes out of tune. and my cat sleeps the whole day, do yours?

Xine thanks and I have been to animal rescue where they have offered me a 'flat cat'! However, as I'm at work so much it seems unfair unless I got two to keep each other company - anyway, one day I will have ten or more to compensate.

Is that something like flatpack furniture....?! ;-) Or perhaps you have to inflate him/her when you get them home.....?!

Seriously hope you get your cats soon, RaRa!

Well I've been 'adopted' by a local moggie (seemingly without a home) or that's what he tells me! He's the size of a bus, so he's being fed at multi-locations or has a thyroid problem. It's nice for him to visit but he's certainly not a 'flat cat' in the figure department.

Thanks for your thoughts - much appreciated.

I saw a very funny book when i was Christmas shopping the other day. It was "Is you Cat Gay?". It was pink, and when i opened it,it was all sketches of Cats doing camp things, for you to decide whether or not your cat is Gay. Such as a drawing of a cat turning it's nose up at plain water, with a caption "3 : Does your cat only insist on the finest grades of milk and turn it's nose up at tap water?". Or a drawing of a cat tucked up in bed - "5 : Does it sneek up the bed while you're out,and luxuriate in the finest silks?". I got the conclusion that our remaining cat (female) is a Lesbian, from the book..LOL. I've certainly never seen her hanging around with any local beafcake cats. She fulfilled many of the criteria to make me wonder :)

Well our stray is bi-sexual and won't consider a dog of any description, therefore, I have to say he has taste. He also enjoys chocolate (the dark stuff) not yer average milk galaxy muck) so there ya go........he's a pussy cat and he's a tom cat.
