Cats know where they belong. No one 'owns' a cat! They choose the people they like. This cat owns you! :wink4:

I too have a cat that belongs to a near neighbour who knows I have him but doesn't bother to care where he is...

He is a full cat that needs to be neutered but I cant see to that as he is not mine.

Every morning he is waiting for his breakfast, has that then spends the rest of the day sleeping on various chairs in the conservatory ,he may wake up mid day for further food then at 7pm I let him out and he goes heaven only knows,only to repeat the process....his food costs me £10 per week and wouldn't you think his owner just might drop me the odd pound or two

There are two of 'mine' , well looked after, but the owner works a few days a week, they have a shed with everything they need in it, but Trigger [above] likes comfort and company, the other one is a little girl, she is just as beautiful but always on the go,
I only give then biscuit treats and then only a few at a time.

Three near identical little tabby females adopted me, in three different houses. Quite strange.

The first one pottered up to the open back door, my dogs used to chase anything that moved but did not even look up. She crept in quietly and became a fixture. Often she slept on top of the dogs, massaging their backs, with claws well shielded. They loved it. Her owners worked all day and she craved company.

Second cat had been rescued by the people next door, they already had two very dominant and territorial male cats, who made her life difficult. She spent a lot of time with us.

Third cat's owner had gone to college and the girl's father did not want cats in the house. Made a comfortable bed for her in the garage but she craved company. I was working from home and she spent most days with me.

I never fed the visiting cats, only gave them fresh water, so that they went back home each day. Eventually the young woman finished her degree and took the cat with her. I still miss her.

Yes. He looks very relaxed, in fact I'd say Trigger is one 'laid-back, cool dude!'

Lovely story Anya, cats are totally different creature, do what they like, when they like and to whom they like, I always say a bit like me, that's why I like cats :happy:

Several cats visit my garden but only one likes a tickle behind the ears and he is not neutered and seems to suffer a skin problem. However, they function as squirrel and bird deterrents - trouble is they are not there all the time!

Well when Mr Squirrel pays the mortgage and buys bulbs from the garden centre, he might have some claim. As it is, there's woods the size of Epping Forest out the back, he can go and dig up bulbs over there...

I can remember one year I bought some new outdoor Christmas lights and was wondering why they didn't seem so bright a week later
Then I saw a rat with a bushy tail running off with one!

Rats, mice, cats, wasps - that's why I always wear gloves when gardening!

Just been in the garden and sprinkled pepper across the top of the pots with tulip bulbs in - see how Mr Squirrel from Sheppey likes that!

My daughter's cat "Bert" is going to be delivered to us on 9 Sept. My daughter and her beau are going on holiday somewhere. Bert is the most adaptable cat i know When she studied at Liverpool Uni, daughter moved 7 times in 4 years and Bert never got lost. When he stays here , we have no problem about letting him out as he can always get back.

I must say I cannot stand cats
Every morning I have to get rid of cat crap in our garden, If I found out where these dirty creatures live I would post the crap through the owners letterboxes.

I would do the same to dog owners that let their dogs crap in my front yard and piss on my flowers, as we are not allowed front fences here.They never carry bags to pick up the shit, as they are supposed to, by law.

I just shovel it up off my lawn and throw it over onto the garden where
the cat lives --they are moving house in a couple of weeks so it will be
one cat less. :didit:
