All Cats are Curious – but Different –

  1. Our cat, Cubbie, is a peek-a-boo kind of cat. He loves to watch things at a distance. He sits at the end corner of the house, and peeks round at you. Then, he slowly advances, nearer and nearer, using shrubbery and objects in the garden to observe things before he gets closer. He’s a wild one, and won’t let you touch him. When he’s content and wants to greet you, he sits fairly close and squints at you to show affection. If he wants something, he uses his front paw to signal, “Pay Attention!” He is very alert and uses his ears to pick up everything going on around him. He has many different moods. Usually, he’s a happy cat, but the rain puts him in a temper and he skulks off as fast as he can. Sometimes, after we have fed him, he stands squarely at the glass patio door for a few minutes until we talk to him, then he goes off. It’s his way of saying, “Goodbye, and Thank You! See you soon!”

    1. QC AND I ARE SO PLEASED That Cubbie is alive and well – as we know he was lost for a short while. Fantastic that this wild cat has semi-adopted you.. but of course he will always be “The Cat Who Walks by Himelf”

  2. We have three cats, the two older sisters are 11 and one is very sedate while the older still runs around very gracefully. They are both very shy, although very affectionate with us now. Our third girl is six but thinks she’s a kitten still. She loves to hide and then pounce out at the other two, who usually run the other way if they spot her. She is quite clumsy so her 3am run around is pretty loud, especially if she gets too excited when she makes loud gobbling noises, just like a turkey. She doesn’t like being held and rarely wants to be petted but always run to us for a chat and a quick head rub. Oh, and she adores the smell of tobacco – it’s like catnip for her!

  3. My cat Rupert was found in a sack as a kitten, very poorly and due to be put to sleep. My friend saw him at the rescue and offered to have him but the vet said no he won’t survive. My friend insisted, said I want him!! She took him home, fed him with a dropper, he became a big strong cat, although deaf ,and was a lovely character. I adopted him when he was 9 as my friend was ill and he lived to age 18.Everyone in the street loved Rupert!

    1. Such a positive outcome to a very sad start Jean – Grrreat story- I feel I love Rupert and I never knew him! I had a white cat with blue eyes who was deaf (called her Mandy) I was told that most such cats are deaf – what colour was Rupert?

  4. Living in The Quadrant, near the Customs House Theatre was as good as it gets, certainly my 3 cats thought so!

    Until the morning I wake up to a most peculiar yowling. I look about of the bedroom window to see my 3 cats crouching over a seagull making this unearthly sound.

    Fortunately, the seagull was dead and as the environmental health officer, who arrived to remove said bird, wisely pointed out, “you moved into their territory!”.

    To this day i don’t know whether the cats broke the habit of a species and worked together to bring the bird down or if if the poor thing was injured and couldn’t fly. I can only hope it didn’t suffer.

    1. Tip the Cat & Sammy the SeagullYour story really highlights the interplay between Seagulls,Cats and Humans Mary . Click on the red text at the start to see a photo of the first thing I see most mornings – Sammy the Seagull and Tip my Cat waiting for Breakfast.
      Tip is a Feral cat we brought back with us from Ireland when all his family were sadly run over. AT 8.00pm every night,whatever the weather, he looks at his watch and out he goes. Until I see him (happily) next morning on my wall. So far no fighting.. they eat at separate
