who is unreasonable regarding the bastard cat? you decide!

The cat is a bastard. There is no cure. He just is.

He sleeps all day (when not demanding good - usually hourly). Then at night he likes to go out.

And in.

And out.

And in.

And out.

And in.

And out.

'Oh get a cat flap' I hear you cry, but the door is unsuitable and even if there was one the kitchen door is closed at night and Bastard Cat has an irrational hatred of closed doors.


He's out and decides he needs to come in. So he shouts and wails loudly until someone gets up and opens a door or window.

Repeat every 2 hours.

And reverse.

I think that if the bathroom window is left open he can come and go and all I need to do is wake up enough to open the bedroom door. Then Bastard Cat can come in and snuggle my head.

H thinks that is just inviting him to shout at the bedroom door. And it should be closed.

But then I have to wake up enough to trek downstairs to let him in.

Please decide who is right.

He's a bastard but very sweet.

Cat flap in bedroom door?

brokenhearted55a Sat 14-Jun-14 21:38:49

Id get rid of him.

pictish Sat 14-Jun-14 21:38:56

I think if you have a cat, you have to let them roam the house pretty much...or they'll yell.

If it's doors open versus getting up every two hours, then there's no contest...it would be doors open.

pictish Sat 14-Jun-14 21:39:26

Cat flaps in all internal doors?

StanleyLambchop Sat 14-Jun-14 21:39:53

I think Bastard Cat is right. He has you exactly where he wants you. At his beck & call. From his point of view, YABU.

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:40:50

Cat flaps in all doors would be wonderful.

A bit weird but wonderful.

Imsuchamess Sat 14-Jun-14 21:41:08

Leave the doors open!

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:41:45

How would one 'get rid' of a cat? Bag of bricks in the canal?

HoneyDragon Sat 14-Jun-14 21:41:55

Get the cat a butler. Then you can resign from cat butlering.

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:42:26

He needs a night nanny.

EatDessertFirst Sat 14-Jun-14 21:42:38

Whatever you do, Bastard Cat will not be happy.

Humans are their serfs dontcha know!?

IamBob Sat 14-Jun-14 21:43:16

^honeydragon is a genius.

sittingatmydeskagain Sat 14-Jun-14 21:43:29

Just leave the bedroom door open. Does he do this all night? Like a newborn baby?

JuniperTisane Sat 14-Jun-14 21:43:32

I'm so glad my cats are happy to have just the boot room and a cat flap at night. and sometimes find catshit on the floor in the morning

I think your DH may have a point about him wailing at your bedroom door. Maybe you should just let the cat sleep on your head and give him free run of the house.

thenightsky Sat 14-Jun-14 21:43:48

<remembering yet again why I hate cats>

RandomMess Sat 14-Jun-14 21:43:49

We shut ours downstairs at night, cat flap locked shut. They get put to bed when we go with a treat of half a pouch of wet food to share. Hear not a peep from them all night.

It's called sleep training! Shut them downstairs, insert ear plugs, give it a week or so to get bastard into the new routine!

CarmineRose1978 Sat 14-Jun-14 21:44:15

The trouble is that you've taught the cat that you will come if he shouts loud enough.

Invest in earplugs. Then you can sleep through all the caterwauling. The cat will eventually realise that you won't come when he shouts, and then he'll stop doing it.

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:44:59

Problem is D2 likes the landing light on at night. So it's a bit light when the door is open.

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:46:26

Bo earplugs would work. He is Loud. And we have neighbouts.

Might need to tell D2 it is time to switch off the light.

ShatnersBassoon Sat 14-Jun-14 21:46:48

You need to take every door out. Then burn the doors, or the cat will find them and meow at them.

derektheladyhamster Sat 14-Jun-14 21:46:54

Sleep training does work! I never thought it would, but I was feeding the cat at 3am someone shoot me and I stopped. He got fed before bed and I ignored him. Ear plugs are your friend for a few nights grin

JuniperTisane Sat 14-Jun-14 21:47:15

Oh Oh OH!

Fit a catflap to your bedroom door!

MaryWestmacott Sat 14-Jun-14 21:47:16

Shut doors and windows, build some sort of cat kennel, start this regime on next Friday night, so you don't have to work the next day. The cat cant cry forever. Do this 2-3 nights, bastard cat will learn. and probably go find other owners

IamBob Sat 14-Jun-14 21:47:29
MaryWestmacott Sat 14-Jun-14 21:47:55

oh and neighbours will cope. Its a cat, it's not like you can do anything about it...

IamBob Sat 14-Jun-14 21:48:03

Then shut the door. The one with the catflap in.

This is why my c

Hassled Sat 14-Jun-14 21:48:05

Why is the door unsuitable? I'd get a new door rather than suffer that shit. That's just insane - there are newborn babies who are less demanding. And Bastard Cat can just get over his hatred of closed doors, frankly. Think of it as controlled crying.

JuniperTisane Sat 14-Jun-14 21:48:12

OR train the cat to sleep on DD2's head instead.

IamBob Sat 14-Jun-14 21:48:49

<pokes Juniper>

ShatnersBassoon Sat 14-Jun-14 21:50:17

My bastard cat stopped meowing in the night when she got so old she didn't know day from night any more. I think she thought we'd all gone out when the house went quiet.

Now she just meows every time someone stands up. So never at night grin

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:50:32

Train a cat? Are you insane?

headlesslambrini Sat 14-Jun-14 21:51:32

My sis has a cat flap that goes through the wall not the door as hers arent suitable either. Cat flap on all relevant internal doors then sleepy bo-bos here you come.

If the cat is not trainable then what about your DH? Chocolate button sex every time he gets up with bastard cat.

Joysmum Sat 14-Jun-14 21:51:38

BC needs training, he's been training you up till now.

My new cats soon realised they got chased away from the bedroom door if the howled at it. You've taught yours to howl by letting it in.

You can decide when you are letting him in and out and couple with a noise cue. Howling at door gets met with chasing away and angry voice.

If you waver, it'll take longer. If you stand firm it won't take too long to complete his training.

Needasilverlining Sat 14-Jun-14 21:54:26

I'm cruising for a flaming here but I beg you to remember that I was (a) 20 (b) clueless and (c) it wasn't my farking cat.

I was a lodger; lovely slightly odd man with two cats. The smallest one adopted me and would spend most nights being On the Wrong Side of my bedroom door (possibly something to do with Landlord being a massive stoner who could sleep through a fire alarm,, let alone a ginger cat whingeing).

After several weeks, hallucinating from sleep deprivation, I padded over to the door, opened it, looked down at his little upturned face, picked up the glass of water on the chest of drawers, held it out and upturned it.

Smallest cat squawked, fled, and never bothered me at 2am again.

I still feel a bit guilty 15 years on but, you know, desperate times...

JuniperTisane Sat 14-Jun-14 21:54:38

Bob got there first I see.

Why is it you going downstairs every two hours? Surely DH should be taking turns, just have a bottle ready in the fridge to heat up then he can feed, burp, cuddle, back to sleep...

Oh wait...

AndHarry Sat 14-Jun-14 21:54:48

Make sure you give your neighbours earplugs too. A yowling cat is as annoying as a barking dog!

Alternatively, build a new door-free house especially for your cat in your back garden.

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 21:55:28

I shall get a man in to do catflaps on All doors.

In the meantime the bathroom window stays open.

Kundry Sat 14-Jun-14 21:55:28

My cats are sleep trained but it took nerves of steel to ignore their pleas and I did it when they were kittens. You are doomed.

They have breakfast in the morning and then go out for the day. Door may be opened to let them in if I'm at home or it's raining but otherwise it's tough until I get home. Then it's dinner time and time to stay in, even if it's a nice sunny evening and there are still mice to catch. I can ignore an enormous quantity of marching up and down, tapping at windows and yelling.

I usually leave all the internal doors open but cats can be locked in the kitchen which is designed to be non cat-scratchable around the door so they can't ruin the carpet by trying to dig an escape tunnel.


Needasilverlining Sat 14-Jun-14 21:56:08

Landlord, obviously, was the lovely slightly odd man. I may be the second, but prob not any of the other terms. grin

Hassled Sat 14-Jun-14 21:56:23

If this were a child, we'd be down on you like a ton of bricks screeching "FFS - set some boundaries". If Bastard Cat were a child he'd be the one whose parents let him run around restaurants shouting and unbalancing the waiters, and who nicks toys in playgrounds while you smile indulgently.

Hoppinggreen Sat 14-Jun-14 21:57:52

Ours get shut in the kitchen as soon as the kids go to bed or one of them sleeps on DD's head and she starts sneezing.
They go quietly and happily and go in and out of the cat flap in the utility.
Unfortunately so does every other bastard cat in the road because despite the magnetic cat flap it's cat free for all in our kitchen at night.

CSIJanner Sat 14-Jun-14 22:03:04

By stop with cat flaps in all the doors? If you make them l human sized, you'll never have to open a door in your home again.

Plus microchipping means that you can keep DC out of your room whilst handily means you can potentially track them when out of the house grin

IamBob Sat 14-Jun-14 22:04:11

Juniper we are just both geniuses (genii).

IamBob Sat 14-Jun-14 22:04:48


MrsChickPea Sat 14-Jun-14 22:07:37

Cats are god. Our is just over 1 stone (perfect for breed!). He hates his cat flap - probably as a bit of a tight squeeze. Will use it when no one is looking, but if you're in the kitchen near the flap, he'll just look at you until you open the door for him. Lazy lump of lard. He'll also pull up all the carpet in the bedroom (outside the bathroom) so he can join DH in the bathroom to watch him have a shower in the morning. I love the cat (I think!). DH ADORES him. But no more cats moving in here after he's departed this world.

Maryz Sat 14-Jun-14 22:10:30

You need to let him cry it out.

Like a baby, only instead of it lasting a few nights, it will last a few years as cats are persistent [bitter]

Either that, or sleep on the floor by the window, so you are in position to let him in whenever he likes.

AtYourCervix Sat 14-Jun-14 22:11:08

He's far too handsom and sweet to deny him anything. I adore him.

MrsChickPea Sat 14-Jun-14 22:12:44

StanleyLambchop Sat 14-Jun-14 22:21:11

He's far too handsom and sweet to deny him anything. I adore him.

I presume you mean Bastard Cat, not DH? In that case why don't you let BC sleep in your bed, and DH can sleep by the back door and do the cat butlering?

MrsChickPea Sat 14-Jun-14 22:21:27

Here's my horror... well a bit of him!

Longdistance Sat 14-Jun-14 22:21:32

I had a bastarding cat like that. He'd climb onto the side access gate, jump onto the porch roof, meow under my bedroom window, which I'd open to let him in.

We did have a cat access cut out on the shed door, so he had a bed in there too, if I wasn't home.

greeneggsandjam Sat 14-Jun-14 22:22:17

Cats are absolute gits.

dingit Sat 14-Jun-14 22:25:08

My parents have an old fashioned cat flap that their cat has to lift with his nose. If they are home he uses it as a door knocker so they open the back door for him smile

Trills Sat 14-Jun-14 22:26:08

The cat is being unreasonable

SadOldGit Sat 14-Jun-14 22:27:11

Our cats go out at night - and then look forlornly at us in the morning to come in. - We confuse them as DD1 and I work shifts so they never know if will have early breakfast (6 am if DD on early) or have to starve til 730. We built them a lovely cat kennel for shelter - which they flatly refuse to use. However even on the foulest, stormiest night Senor (boycat) is never even damp when he comes in - so clearly has another home. Fat Cat (his sister) is too stupid and is often a tad damp

ballsballsballs Sat 14-Jun-14 22:30:44

I had a bastard elderly tom who would repeatedly punch the catflap at speed (imagine a boxer punching a ball during practice) until the noise woke me up. And when he wanted feeding at silly o'clock he'd walk back and forth over my head purring until I got up. I loved him to the moon and back tho'.

They are indeed our feline overlords.

RiverTam Sat 14-Jun-14 22:35:05

we replaced our unsuitable back door when we got our cats. It kind of meant we had to get a new kitchen so it's worked out as being a £12,000 cat flap.

Haffdonga Sat 14-Jun-14 22:40:57

Despite having the run of the house and a catflap to the great outdoors, our Stupidcat would regularly yowl outside our bedroom window to be let in in the middle of the night. This was a window that was not openable and so Stupid cat had never ever gained access that way.

Nevertheless Stupidcat thought it was worth crying pitifully outside the non-funtioning window rather than go all the way (at least 3 metres) to her fully functioning cat flap and through all the wide open doors to the place she thought she should be.

Don't look for cat logic or brains Stupidcat was a bastard too.

jammiecat Sat 14-Jun-14 23:08:31

Mrschickpea we also have a 1 stone lazy lump of a cat who loves to watch us shower - except we have two of them. One of them likes to scratch/meow outside the front door rather than go around the back to the catflap! But I love them both so they get away with it. And right on cue the scratching at the front door has just started!

p.s. Your cat is beautiful

steppemum Sat 14-Jun-14 23:18:12

cat has you seriously wrapped around his paw!

Whether you do catflap, bathroom window, or just shut him in or out all night, you have to teach him that you are not going to get up for him no matter what.

Food, doors as you want them, and then go to bed and ignore him, or, chuck water over him if he yowls.

He is doing it, because it works!

Harrietsferrets Sat 14-Jun-14 23:23:48

My mum tried cat flap training her cat as he would howl and yowl until she gave in. The cat disagreed with her train of thinking so spent a fortnight bringing in kill. She stopped trying to not do as he wanted when she was faced with a gutted hare corpse in the middle of her bedroom. The guts were trailed up the stairs. Ozzy Osbourne (AKA Prince of Darkness) started the killing spree with small mice and moles, although the blasted mole was still alive, and worked up in size. After the hare it would have been lambs and sheep as she lives by a sheep farm. Then I guess he would have moves do to cattle.

Maryz Sat 14-Jun-14 23:25:10

So, are you going to sleep in the bath?

Or hire a cat butler?

Those are the only possible solutions.

DH fitted a cat flap to our bedroom door, and also to the internal kitchen/hallway door. There was another one in the external kitchen door. And one into the shed. And another one to a different shed.

I think we kept the cat flap industry going for a while there.

Sadly the cat is now dead.

TitsCrossed Sat 14-Jun-14 23:30:13

Titcats have a grand total of 4 (four!!) cat flaps (internal and external) to allow free access to their Kingdom.

The fuckers still throw themselves (a la Simon's cat) at the 1 door that hasn't been flapped to teach me a lesson. It seems I never learn.

Your thread has the words "cat" and "who is being unreasonable" in it. I don't even need to read it.

Of course it's you.

BerylStreep Sat 14-Jun-14 23:36:07

Our cat can not only open doors by herself (she hangs off the handle), she can also turn the key in the lock, by putting her claw through the hole in the key.

She's doing it right now. I have come home from work a few times to find the back door lying wide open, and I am amazed we haven't been burgled.

BertieBotts Sat 14-Jun-14 23:38:34

You need to take every door out. Then burn the doors, or the cat will find them and meow at them.

This is my favourite part of this thread grin

steppemum Sat 14-Jun-14 23:43:11

Beryl - leaving the key in the lock is making it easy for burglars, if you are out lock the door and remove the key!

enormouse Sat 14-Jun-14 23:47:34

I have looked after an escape artist cat like beryls . Dps parents kitten. After being spayed she stayed with us so the other cats wouldn't nibble her stitches.

The little git would get upstairs, through 3 closed doors and into our bedroom to let us know she had demands.

This was particularly impressive as she had a cone on her head. And only 3 legs.

She also broke a kettle during her stay.

Lesshastemorespeed Sat 14-Jun-14 23:50:01

Has he been 'done'?

steppemum Sat 14-Jun-14 23:51:13

I know 2 cats (ours and one of my mums) who liked to sleep on the bed, but weren't allowed.

They waited until the humans in the house started to do going to bed type moves and then sneaked upstairs and hid under the bed.

then once said humans are asleep, come out and climb onto bed and snuggle down.

stealthsquiggle Sat 14-Jun-14 23:51:34

I feel your pain, OP. When I was a teenager one of our cats would sit and twang the lead on the leaded window of my bedroom until I let her in - and I learned the hard way that that involved being awake enough to check if she was bringing anything in with her. If she was, and I said no, she would sit and crunch it loudly outside the window before resuming the twanging angry

Our cats have always been shut out at least as far as the kitchen at night. Tonight, however, having had enough of washing the blood of assorted small mammals off the kitchen floor in the morning, I have shut them right out in "their" room (utility room). It is too far from anyone's bedrooms for scratching at the door to wake anyone, but I am anticipating a concerted attack on DD's 3rd floor dormer window, which is open enough to prevent suffocation/ heat stroke,but not enough for them to get in.

Seems to me you have two choices - shut BC out and buy earplugs, or leave internal doors open and give him the run of the house. Why does your bedroom door have to be shut (ours is always open because I am a fresh air freak )

Runesigil Sun 15-Jun-14 01:32:28

Train a cat? Are you insane?

Read on another forum. A couple were delighted with their new pet cat, only prob was it scratched at the back of the sofa. The Man of the house decided to teach it not to, so every time it started to scratch the back of the sofa, he in his wisdom, put the cat outside.
For the next 16 years, every time the cat wanted to go out, it scratched the back of the sofa grin

shockinglybadteacher Sun 15-Jun-14 02:50:50

My dad's cat has trained him to let her in whenever she howls. Doesn't matter if it's 4am, he'll get up (cursing) to let her through the window or open the front door for her.

Cat doesn't even bother if I'm staying at my parents' place, my mum and me are there and my dad is out. Or if my mum's alone and my dad is out. The cat tried it on with both of us once (howling outside the window). It lasted from 1am to 7am. We didn't let her in, no matter how annoying and plaintive she sounded. She hasn't tried since.

Bastard Cat has trained you smile You'll probably have a couple of unpleasant nights with him howling at you, but give him the choice - he stays in and gets to snuggle up, or he goes outside, doesn't get let back in until you get up and makes the best of it. The only way to do that is ignore him until he stops.

Monty27 Sun 15-Jun-14 03:57:55

All cats are bloody annoying. I have renamed my two; Get and Out grin

mindthegap79 Sun 15-Jun-14 07:13:26

Cat flaps in all internal doors. We have glass doors across the back and thought we couldn't have a cat flap, but DH engineered a solution. He drilled a 40cm tunnel through the cavity wall, put a cat flap on each end and lined the tunnel with cat flap extenders (compatible with cat flaps, available at pet shops). Cat 1 got the hang of the tunnel straight away, and after weeks of taping it open and us + cat 1 showing him how (and offering encouragement and support 24/7), so did cat 2.

Now they trot merrily through with all their 'thank you for our fab tunnel' presents.

dementedma Sun 15-Jun-14 09:22:45

Glass door here and upstairs flat so tunnel through wall idea would result in plummet to certain death in downstairs neighbours yard.(tempted to try it)
Bastard cat twanhs the outside of the door with his claws and has shredded it. We hung a bell on the door at Christmas and he learned to stand on his back legs and ring it- which was funny but just another annoying noise in the end. We go with leaving our bedroom door open but dh snores like a warthjog which results in Ds waking up and slamming our door which startles bastard cat now asleep on our bed and makes him realise that actually he would lime to be outside after all....

HappyLashes Sun 15-Jun-14 10:04:23

When DP (now DH) moved in he couldn't understand why I left my bedroom window open in order to hear my cat meow at the back door, directly below, at 1am every night when I would go down and let him in. It didn't take long before DP was the one going downstairs at 1am grin

10 years on, new house, cat flap in back door, cat flap from kitchen to utility room, all internal doors left open and the cat I love more than anything still has DH wrapped around his little paw! He gets up with DH at 4.30am and meows until he gets meat from the fridge, insists on pushing onto DH's knee to share breakfast. Meows at the front door to be let out and immediately comes back in through the cat flap and goes straight back to the front door. Nibbles DH's armpits and ears when he's asleep.

AtYourCervix Sun 15-Jun-14 21:10:21

Bastard Cat has now vanished. Not been in for tea. Git.

ApproachingATunnel Sun 15-Jun-14 21:16:46

Chuck him out during the day in hope he won't find anywhere to sleep and will be tired at night?

Failing that, i dont know, perhaps a few nights of chucking him out and not letting back in (if you can stand the cries) would help?

ApproachingATunnel Sun 15-Jun-14 21:20:19

I generally love cats but there is one in the neighbourhood who comes to shit under our front window or driveway (gravel). Not related, sorry but since we're talking about bastard cats...

ShatnersBassoon Sun 15-Jun-14 21:20:26

Quick, move house. That'll teach the bastard.

Maryz Sun 15-Jun-14 21:55:04

It's a carefully calculated move to make you feel guilty.

Obviously you are considering not pandering to his every demand. He has therefore moved out.

Monty27 Sun 15-Jun-14 22:04:58

He's making you suffer grin

AtYourCervix Sun 15-Jun-14 22:08:33

It's working. He never misses meals. Git. Am worrying.

But the bathroomm window is open wide.

MrsChickPea Sun 15-Jun-14 22:20:11

Have you called for him? Could he be eating elsewhere?

Maryz Sun 15-Jun-14 22:23:54

Oh, I hope he turns up.

It's lovely and warm. Mine is out chasing frogs tonight. Hopefully yours is doing something similar.

PipkinsPal Sun 15-Jun-14 22:24:22

He needs retraining to come in at a certain time and stay in. My cat comes in around 9pm each night. He may whinge about going out but a firm "no" and he settles down. Oops it's gone 10pm. I'd better go and let him in. He will be on the doorstep waiting.

cindydog Sun 15-Jun-14 22:38:21

keep him awake all day by throwing water at him, screaming at him etc ,he should be too tired to roam all night.

BoyCat is very stressed this morning because his sister (aka touchmeandyoudiecat ) seems to have disappeared hmm. My stress levels on the subject are not being helped by the fact that DS, who is touchmeandyoudiecat's chosen person, left on a school trip early this morning and I really don't want to have to tell him when he gets home on Wednesday that we have lost his cat hmmhmm.

Eyes sadoldgit suspiciously do we have shared ownership of annoying twat cat and his younger sister annoying stupid cat?? Stupid cat is always wet when it rains because it's too stupid to hide somewhere dry (they have a shelter) and always comes in like a drowned rat dripping all over my floors angry if twat cat gets wet he lets himself in, follows you around until you stand still long enough for him to shake himself off and dry himself on your legs. Utter bastards the pair of them!

Feed BC last thing at night - he has to come in if he wants dinner .
Shut him in the kitchen or utility with small litter tray.
Shut the door.
Go to bed.

Oh no! RTFT wannabe

I am so sorry, poor BC sad

Toooldtobearsed Mon 16-Jun-14 18:10:29

AYC - has he gone? Not sure from your post. Whatever, I am truly sorry. My pain in the bum comes and goes at will, but still insists that 4:30am is 'getting up time'

Hope BC is still with us, if not, then sorry for inappropriate post, and take care.

thebodylovesspring Mon 16-Jun-14 18:11:45

I am afraid cats are a law into themselves.

That is all.

thebodylovesspring Mon 16-Jun-14 18:13:15

Ooohhh so very very sorry op. Just realised. Hugs hugs hugs.

AtYourCervix Mon 16-Jun-14 18:23:25

Sorry. Confusing thread. Poor Bastard Cat is no more.

Toooldtobearsed Mon 16-Jun-14 18:35:10

Sorry. Bloody awful time, been there, done it, got the t-shirt.

Take care AYC, and so sorry.

PestoSurfissimos Mon 16-Jun-14 18:38:16

Oh no sad

So sorry to. Hear this news {{{hugs}}}

cheepcheep Mon 16-Jun-14 18:42:45

Get your kitty some Fenaway kitty drugs to chill it out a bit. Maybe it will stop being so annoying when medicated. Alternatively just put the cat out at night - with food and water. Maybe it'll get the message that out means out, and not in n out. Persistence is key here.

cheepcheep Mon 16-Jun-14 18:45:36

Only just realised that he's passed away, so sorry x

slithytove Mon 16-Jun-14 18:48:56

Sorry OP sad

Rest in peace Bastard Cat.

Fitting he has a thread for his memory x

BerylStreep Mon 16-Jun-14 20:00:36

Poor BC.

Poor you. Tis always tough when that happens.

dementedma Mon 16-Jun-14 20:59:40

Oh, poor bastardcat. And poor you.x

MrsChickPea Mon 16-Jun-14 21:05:04

Oh no. Tears here. I am so sorry. Was so hopeful. Are you going to have a proper cat funeral. They are good actually. Help a bit. And you get a nice wooden thing to put Bastard Cat in (to smile at/cry at from time to time). A very sad day. AtYourCervix - lots of cuddles heading your way. xxxx

girliefriend Mon 16-Jun-14 21:06:24

Poor BC

CSIJanner Mon 16-Jun-14 22:00:01

Oh no AYC - RIP bastard cat. As much as they irritate with the mewing, sitting on your head and coughing up hair balls on the worktops, they are much loved members of the family. Am so sorry sad

EvaBeaversProtege Mon 16-Jun-14 22:47:51

Oh, just read this thread.

RIP BC. thanks

mindthegap79 Mon 16-Jun-14 23:03:24

Oh no, so sad, thinking of you op thanks

MinkyWinky Tue 17-Jun-14 09:43:22

So sorry AYC. I read the thread empathising all the way about cats and sleep deprivation and the worry they cause when they come back late then saw your post. It's my biggest fear when batcat is late coming back. I'm so sorry about BC.
