Cat Lovers May Be Out Of Their Minds

In Egypt's ancient Library
a scribe late at night described
"a mouse saw a cat but didn't hide
It hugged the cat, it was scary

The cat ate the entire mouse
What spell did the cat cast so well?"
It was the mouse brain truth to tell
Toxoplasmosis is in your house

The parasite controls the mice
for cats to eat them, to live on
toxo grows in cats then is gone
Toxo controls brains, its not nice

Cats don't have owners, they have staff.
Cat lovers may have toxo brains
and do not bother to complain
It could be you so do not laugh

"On the first night in use, the thing must have driven the mouse out of the woodwork.

Ah, keberoxu, she's settled in beautifully.

Apparently she's a great mouser, and my sis comes downstairs in the morning to find a head and a tail of a mouse on the kitchen floor several times a week. (Mela eats the middle) She's pleased, as she wanted to control the mouse population in the garden a bit.

Mela sleeps on the top of the duvet on my sister's bed, and occasionally licks the tip of her nose during the night, just to reassure her that her feline friend loves her. Her tongue's a bit rough, but my sis doesn't mind.
She's eating well, and her coat now shines. It's lovely for them both to have company and love isn't it?

Four years ago I took a "farm" cat from a friend, she was a very beautiful long haired Tabby. She has never been inside a house when I took her home.

She is absolutely gorgeous, very, very affectionate and took to living in a house straight away.

I was a little remiss in not taking her to a vet to have her neutered and the consequence of that was she had three kittens.

One in particular was very unhappy at being handled and I couldn't trust someone else to care for him, so he became another member of our family.

He is extremely timid, even with my wife and I, but this morning he was sitting on my bedroom windowsill growling at the refuge wagon as it reversed down the lane.

I love him to bits and with me he can be, when he wants, very affectionate.

I'm not sure about British Shorthair cats, as I only had a couple, and never more than one at a time. But my Siamese over the years did in fact hunt and explore outside in a group, like a pack. And they always sleep together, cuddled up and wrapped around each other. They also 'talk' and have quite a wide vocabulary, once you learn the language. I think they see me as a sort of servant-being, tolerated with a certain fondness and manipulated shamelessly to fetch this and that.
When poor little Minty was ill, he was often sick in the kitchen, and the two others screeched for the Nurse (me) to come. They knew it was my job to clear it up and sort things out.
I always laugh when SmokeyPokey says "Laptop!" so clearly. He obviously wants to send an e mail to his girlfriend (or order more roast chicken from Tesco).

My opinion is that cats, being less social in nature than dogs (no pack behavior, solitary hunting), are all about territory; and they think of their humans as part of their territory, I suppose the part that keeps them fed. What is your opinion?

Next week I will be back in Ireland, I expect, and hope, to see the cat that "adopted" me last time we were there.

I did ensure before we started feeding her that other people were looking after her. She is a little sweety, very affectionate, but normally only stays for an hour or so before she goes elsewhere for more fuss, food and attention.

I know I shouldn't get attached but she's Josie to me.

Lots of cats have adopted me keberoxu over the years. I think a stray cat will see a house where other cats live and try to get a piece of the action so to speak. (One shouldn't really entice or encourage a random cat to have a snack or a kip unless it's obviously hungry and a true stray. It could be someone's much-loved pet on the scrounge.)

A little tabby I called Solo appeared one winter in the snow. His coat was shabby and he was very thin. He kept lifting his freezing feet up one after the other from the icy ground. I let him in (much to my four other cats' horror!) and he plastered himself against the radiator after having gobbled up a huge plate of casseroled rabbit. I got the flea treatment onto him while he slept, and hid a worm tablet in some more food. He stayed with me for two years before he became very ill with liver problems, and I had to have him put to sleep. He truly adored me and used to make himself into a fur collar by wrapping himself around my neck while I did my housework! My next-door neighbour didn't like the name I'd chosen, and maintained he was an 'Oscar'!

She was black, white and beautiful and very loving.

The thing with cats, though, is that some of them -- not all of them, I guess -- really orient themselves to places. I have always felt that cats think of people as part of their territory, and it is no secret that cats are territorial by nature.

I am thinking of the little book by the late May Sarton. She and her partner had a pet cat, who was the subject of the book. Forget the title. Of course the tomcat, duly neutered, took over their lives. Then for some reason they had to relocate; they found a suitable home for the cat with people they trusted.

The occasion arose for a reunion meeting. The reunion between the humans went nicely enough. It was different for the cat. You see, it worked out that Sarton and partner travelled to a nearby hotel, rather than stay in someone's home. And for some reason, the new owners of the cat brought the cat to the hotel room, rather than bring Sarton and partner to the cat on the cat's new territory.

So Sarton and partner's last memory of their tomcat was of a very unhappy, uneasy animal in a place he had never been before, and wanted to get out of right now, thank you, and he didn't care if he used to know these people!

Last year my wife and I bought an apartment on the west coast of Ireland. There were 3 cats which lingered around the vicinity. We've been "adopted" by one of them, a beautiful, small and sleek black cat who is very affectionate.

Although I was reluctant to feed her, on the basis of what would she do when we are not here, she eventually won me over.

I made some enquiries and found several people locally feed her and her twin and that they use to live in the apartment we bought. It seems the previous tenants just abandoned them when they left.

How people can do that is beyond my imagination.

Yes, SmokeyPokey is 15 years old now, which for a Siamese is quite aged. We're all missing poor little Minty terribly. His brother Murphy is moping around, and Smokey won't leave my side. My husband still has tears in his eyes when he comes home from work and there's no Minty to welcome him. Honestly, I've been through this so many times but it seems to get harder!
On a happier note, my sister up in Scotland has just adopted a rescue cat from the Cats' Protection League. A British black female called Mela. The website said she was 'timid and wary of people' but my good old sis got her home and the little madam inspected the premises and decided it would do. She's spent the last couple of days curled up on my sister's lap, and they love each other already. My sister is a widow and has just retired, so the company of Mela will be excellent.
I can't seem to shake off the sadness about Minty. He was so terribly ill at the end, and we did the right thing...I hate this time of year anyway, and I'm trying to keep cheerful. But...

Back in the 1970s I shared a house with various friends, including Bonnie Shaljean, and it was decided we should have a cat as there was evidence of past rodent problems. So we had two calico sibling cats, Felicity and Dunstable. When they first arrived, we were convinced that Felicity was a female and Dunstable was a male, based on Felicity's neat posture and Dunstable's total lack of sense of dignity - we didn't know at the time that calico toms are very rare indeed. Eventually we realised that they were both female, by which time we had two litters of kittens, one of whom went back to my parents and became their much loved Cato.
Both cats tended to pee in the front hall, but were good company and provided some great moments of entertainment - Bonnie, if you're reading this, remember the dead squirrel? It had been left by the side of my bed one morning, and, half-asleep, I couldn't work out what to do with it so I went and put it in the kitchen bin. Bonnie came across it when throwing a tea bag away and to judge by the scream it was a bit of a shock (which I suppose it would have been).
In due course we all went our separate ways and I went to live in France, and both cats went to live with a couple of older women friends of mine up in Nottingham. Felicity didn't last long there as there was another cat already, so she took herself off (and we assume found somewhere else to live, as she was a resourceful cat). Dunstable, on the other hand, absolutely loved her new home and when I visited some time later she showed off just how rich and luxuriant her coat now was. I was left in no doubt that she preferred things as they were, and she had no wish to return to me, ever!

Isobel, a small black fur person, is squirming and purring in my lap as I type, for the study desk is her favourite place to infest. Watson, her brother, owns the kitchen sofa and anyone with the temerity to sit there, especially in the spot beside the reading lamp.

For a couple of years, we had a Siamese named Tokyo Rose, Rosie to her friends, who operated like a heat-seeking missile from Remembrance Day to Easter. She came to us as an emergency case, having been the undermost cat in a crowded house, and departed just as abruptly when it became apparent that she would succeed in preventing the settlement of Isobel and Watson, then four-month-old kittens. By the time the kittens came into our lives, Rosie had been the only cat in the house from April (when Old Bill died) to late November, and she was determined to keep it that way. She ambushed the kittens whenever they ventured onto the kitchen floor, especially whenever they emerged from the litter box. By February, the kittens were living on top of the refrigerator and Watson had learned to crap in the sink. Something had to give, and it was decided that the least bad solution was to find yet another new home for Rosie.

With great good luck, an old friend of my brother was found to be in need of a cat, and Rosie went to Prince Edward County where she is now the love of an old bachelor's life. He sent us a photo yesterday, of Rosie basking in a sunbeam on the sofa, so I gather that she has not changed a bit.

They sound lovely Anne. I had five cats at once for quite a while. If one passed away, I usually got two kittens. (I found the kittens were company for each other and felt more reassured together. They also played kitten games without irritating the older cats.) Trouble is, the policy of 'lose one, get two' results in rather a lot of cats around the place. But then I had a huge garden surrounded by fields and the cats enjoyed our log fire in the winter. Our present house is much smaller.
Siamese cats are always very talkative. Ours have a wide vocabulary. They also have a very naughty tendency to have a quick wee on any object to mark territory. (I've always had neutered males) You can see them laughing when you chase them after they've done it. Dreadful.

Minty is still in out thoughts. It's over a week now since he was put to sleep, and the grief continues. I half expect to see him again when I go into the kitchen early in the morning. He used to rub his head against my dressing gown sleeve and try to stop me filling the kettle at the sink. We loved him so much...
