Cos after they've done all those things they'll curl up all warm next to you on the couch and purr a lot and be incredibly cute.

Remembering coming home from work to find a hallway full of feathers and looking further finding a beak and claws left on halfway up the stairs - ah the joy of it all!!

any tips for carpet chewing around doors? not done it for ages but the last few nights its woken me up. Unceremonially booted out of the house at 6 this morning!!

pmsl. Great thread title

It was either that or 'F*ing Cats!!'

Are they ripping at the carpet to get in? 'Fraid they wont stop that til you open the door!!

not allowed in the bedroom as they bloody wake me up jumping on me!

DW would quite happily have them on / in the bed but I can't stand that.

i'm all for the old 'putting the cats out at night' but I can't get away with that.

do love them though of course

LOL, Swiperfox! Dd's boyfriend's mum is wondering the same thing. One of their cats, which they brought back from India, has been feasting on rabbit's heads. She says she can feel the bones crunching in his tummy when she picks him up. But even worse, she went into the shed the other day and found a neat pile of stinking headless rabbits - his little lair for the unwanted bodies. Yuk, yuk, yuk!!

Yup - I'm going with the curling up on you and purring. They rub against your legs when they want something, and make you fall over, but it feels so nice that you don't mind.

The come to you when you are crying to pur and get fur in your tears, and they curl up on top of your bump when you are pregnant and make the baby kick lots.

I want a cat sooo much.

must be something in the air . Our kitten brought a bloody baby rabbit in thru the flap not 20 minutes ago

swiperfox Fri 01-Apr-05 23:12:27

oh noooo!! Poor bunny! Bloody cats!! Our cat flap has been completely snashed in half where i locked it and they bashed their wat through it!

I never realised they were so much trouble. I always assumed they were just nice and purry/cuddly/sleepy etc - I guess while i was at home my mum always dealt with the wee/poo/dead animals etc!!

*smashed and waY PMSL

Smashed their way in through the catflap, lol!!! Someone round here saw a lynx recently - that would make a big hole in anyone's catflap, that's for sure!

yuk to the rabbit head bones in crunching the stomach! Haven't heard of that one before.

We are getting a kitten any day now. The last of our four original cats died in February. To be honest, I was enjoying cat freedom while wallowing in memories of dearest departed.

We were away for a week over Easter and when we opened the front door, the house smelt so different - no odour of cat fur, food bowls or worse.

Dh and my sons have been secretly orchestating the arrival of this new kitten. A vote of three against one. I have said I will have nothing to do with vet visits, every last one of them is down to dh. I just hate the unpredictablilty of those crisis visits, deciding if a vet is really needed, getting time off work etc etc. and this time, as we will have a young cat *we will insure it against illness*

When I saw this title I thought it was about my house. Also have problems with muddy paw prints and one of my cats insists on moving her food from the bowl onto the floor to eat it.
