I'm in bed happily reading my book and a cat has just climbed through the window and settled down on my feet.
Neither of our neighbours have a cat. I have no idea where it's from.
It's a very pretty cat so I think I will let it stay, at least until dh comes up and throws it out.

I'm not sure your photo posted?

How lovely! Keep it grin
Sort of wink

How exciting! Oh to be a cat, and just go where you want grin

This happened to DH 7 years ago. The cat is called Puss (hmm), has to get regular haircuts cos she's rubbish at grooming herself and hides inside the sofa for Fireworks Night.

Enjoy your new cat grin

Congratulations on your new cat! 💐🐈

Puss. This is her sulking after MIL picked her up from the cattery after a weekend away.

Where's your photo OP?!

The cat chose you, OP. Accept that. It's a privilege. ❤️

Where are you that it's warm enough to have your window open?!

Fairly standard at mine. I get out the shower and my cat has brought his mate home. Having a bath and one wandered in and put its paws up on the bath

Jjacobb Mon 05-Oct-20 21:19:55

There you are. I'm trying to make it turn round so I can take a better picture but it is not listening.
This is why I love cats they have such a "fuck you" attitude. I mean my house, my bed but it won't even acknowledge me 😂

This is not my cat

We also get a visiting cat but that's because we have a hamster. Last time I caught it it had just knocked the tube off the hamster's cage! I think she's more curious than anything because the crash scared her and she ran away.

Quimreaper, window stays open all year. I can't sleep otherwise.

How rude to post with no photo. I demand a photo of the cat immediately. Anyone's, not just OP's, I'm not fussy.

@SeasonallySnowyPeasant thanks, you've got the right idea!

We have a four month old Border Collie so cat may decide to leave. Although this is clearly a cat with attitude so will probably not care a jot.

If a strange cat visits you it is the law to share a photo on MN.

Kakiweewee Mon 05-Oct-20 21:25:21

You post about cats, you pay the cat tax.

PurplePansy05 Mon 05-Oct-20 21:25:31

Uhm, we have one too. And more than one cat 😂 They're splendid together, just saying.

That second photo is so cat 🐈 Righteous indignation

@TheSpottedZebra right ?!

Loving the other cute cat photos though !

I’d love this to happen to me 🥰

PurplePansy05 Mon 05-Oct-20 21:26:03

(I meant the BC) 😊

QueenOllie Mon 05-Oct-20 21:27:15

@KatherineJaneway he loves if I'm watching a horror film to sneak up and bang on the window. My cat is hmmhmm "mama, PAWS is here again"

This is totally something my ginger tom would do (and probably does)

I would love to be a cat
