I'll start with my two boys. A pair of Maine Coons (half brothers) just over a year old. Rambo (grey) and Merlin (ginger). Merlin often goes with me in the car and for a treat I take him down the boating lake at Newquay. They are trained to go on the lead, however, Rambo has recently taken to flying up a particular tree near my gaff and sit on a branch 15 - 20ft from the ground. Post your cats here for us to see.

Oskar the Bengal thrives - I'll try to attach a photo. That's some moggy you've got there ! Not you, Electra. Is it a Norwegian Forest ? A Maine Coon and a Spitfire - beauty by the bucketful. Doesn't that take some beating.

This is our "Phil", he adopted us about five years ago. He cost us an absolute fortune in vets bills last year. Lovely cat though. Once he gets on my lap in the evening, he is out for the count. http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr141/Deetektor/Home%20and%20Garden%202015/GardenFeb201510_zps1b6024b9.jpg

What IS IT about cats ? I wish I could explain this deep attachment. I still think about my last moggy who died twenty years ago.

Re 8 Have you thought about changing your pen name from the rather nondescript Moggy to Electra ? The picture association would be remarkably benevolent. I'm thinking saucer and cream already.

This wee guy used to live in my mum's back garden - he didn't have the nicest of owners, and spent months hanging out under the decking. [ATTACH=CONFIG]235698[/ATTACH] I used to leave food out for him, and it took a good three weeks for him to get used to me enough to not run away whenever he saw me. I eventually got him to the stage where he would come into the house and be comfortable enough to stay indoors for short periods. Unfortunately, his owners(!) had him shipped off to the cat rescue. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't take him on myself, but thankfully he did eventually find a new owner. This photo shows him in his new home: [ATTACH=CONFIG]235697[/ATTACH]

It's a shame when owners (or their children) get bored with their pets. Our "Phil" was one such cat, which appeared on our back door step, when his owners chucked him (and others) out. It was during a cold snowy winter about five years ago, when our previous cat was on his last legs.

I am not a pet owner but enjoyed the company of a dog and several cats as a child. But I understand the strength of feeling engendered between owner and pet. I think is is worse than irresponsible rather than just a shame when owners are no longer prepared to accept responsibility for their pets. Having a pet is a responsibility and too many people seem to regard them as toys, to be dumped when they get bored with them. And I suspect too many adults do not engender that spirit of responsibility in their children.

Cats have the ability to relocate themselves quite satisfactorily if it so enters their head. Plus an uncanny ability eventually to find the 'right' home. Moggy
