Do I smell of catnip?!

So at home I have two cats, neither of which are mine hmm
A birman, and a black and white cat, both let themselves in through the window and are often found snoozing on my bed if they can find any way in. The birman trails after me like a pet dog and yowls outside for me
The stable cat is meant to be feral but spends half its time crying for me to pick her up, she perches on my shoulder and won't be put down
I gained the cat whisperer title after the totally feral cat at work plonked itself on my lap
Tonight. At work. Go out for lunch, go to open door to find a cat sat there yowling at me. Happily trailing after me in the rain and wanting fuss. I had to leave him/her outside crying sad
Why?! Just... I seem to constantly have a cat attached to me

You must be a very good person - cats know these things!

I think you have a cat now.
The black one is lovely

You are the catty pied piper obviously

Cats just find some people 'sympathique'. Who can tell what's in their minds - but if you're not one of them, try you ever so hard, you'll likely just get the fisheye.

If she's known as 'the stable cat' and is considered 'feral' then it sounds as though she doesn't have her own person and so has chosen you. It also sounds as though no one might have bothered to get her neutered (not because of her behaviour - but because she isn't considered to be anyone's pet). Do you what the situation is there?

She's been done - it's a bit of a joke, she came to be a semi feral stable cat to deal with mice etc.
Now known as least feral cat because she turned out to be half Siamese and the softest cat we have ever met! (Oh and it's a useless mouser preferring bunnies) confused

Half Siamese ? She's chosen you as her person. (I'm amazed she hasn't found some way to live with you yet!)

Cats just have sense for the right sort of people. I get accosted in the street by cats hurtling out of the bushes to demand tickles from me.

Cats from all neighbouring streets regularly try to move in with my parents - no food is ever offered. It's just a vibe we give off. Dh is the same- 's why I married him wink

Yes cozie - it's the one known as spider cat that clambers up me with claws!! grin

My colleague came to me a minute ago
"Why is there a cat sat outside the door?"
"Dunno, why you asking me?"
"You're the cat person"

I knew DH was right for me when he met my parents' paranoid, neurotic very timid cat who took an immediate like to him. Raffles (he came with the name!) was terrified of everyone and everything apart from my parents, my sister and me but he liked DH and that as good enough for me.

Fuzzymum1, my cat's approval of DH also counted very much in his favour. DCat was a good judge of character.

Obviously your calling in life is cat behaviourist.

Do you like cats though?.

Can you take semi-feral shiny black cat home to live with you? Sounds like she'd be very happy with that.

Go on, you know you want to! smile
