    Default Cats

    "Mike’s experience is not unique. “In the last three years, we’ve dealt with more incidents of cat theft than ever before,” says the pet detective Colin Butcher. His outfit, The Pet Detectives, specialises in returning cats to their owners. Butcher differentiates between “cat seduction” – which is when neighbours allow the cat into their home and feed it, but ultimately let it go – and outright theft. “The vast majority of cat-seduction cases will become theft if individuals are not stopped,” Butcher warns. How can you tell if someone is interfering with your feline friend? He suggests that if your cat is gaining weight, returning home smelling unusual or is newly groomed, these are signs someone else has their eye on your pet."

    I can't see any signs that anyone is interfering with my friend's pussy!

    The premise that anyone can actually own a cat is itself incorrect.

    absolutely, which makes it even more remarkable what that Russian trainer has been able to train domestic cats to do!

    When we lived in town, we've had two cats "go elsewhere" over the years. One went down the road to live with a neighbour because she got on better with the neighbour's cats than with ours. The other used to sleep on the neighbour's sofa all day and just come back to eat, giving us a withering glance as he nonchalantly walked past as we sat in the lounge on the way to his food bowl.

    If the cat's happy, has not been blatantly lured away and is not hacking anyone else off, then you just have to let them go or deal with why they went in the first place. They're not stupid - there's always a reason.

    We've got four at the moment, all rescues or strays. Our latest is a 10kg Maine Coon that came from a cat charity. He's not small.

    He's not small
    I'm contemplating getting one. Our 18 year old companion was savaged by a neighbour's two Boston terriers recently and had to be put down. On second thoughts, what's that half wild cat that's being interbred with domestics cats? That should prove to be interesting!

    Savannah cat. An angry Maine Coon is very scary but unfortunately they're not naturally aggressive.

    Sorry to hear about yours.

    The cats are all being stolen by the Military Wing of the Flat Earth Society, who are hoping to prove their case by getting cats to push everything off the edge.........
