This splendid specimen of cat-hood is my neighbour's cat Ziggy.
He's about 16 years old and he rules the close that we live in.
Your piece about the Dutchman who was fined because he waited for a cat reminded me of Ziggy. He likes to sit in the middle of the close and he will only move in his own time. Often we have to get out of the car and move him so that we can drive out of our driveway.
Ziggy loves cars and especially enjoys sitting on the bonnet while it's still warm.
Is Sonny Silly?
Our boy cat is called Sonny because he was one of a litter of only two kittens, the other a female was called Cher of course.
Sonny is a great little guy. He is so full of love and can be extremely amusing with the things he gets up to. He goes outside to enjoy the air and sun, he is never out for long as food is at home.
Now before we had the pet door put in he would hop up on the window ledge and scratch the window pane to let us know he wants in. Now he uses the pet door, well most of the time he does.
Some days for whatever reason he forgets he has his own little entrance and scratches at the window. We have tried ignoring him reasoning that he will get fed up with scratching and use the pet door. But no, he stubbornly keeps attacking the window pane and I swear that he would be at it for the rest of the day and all night if we let him.
Next day he is back to using his pet door. We can't figure why he does this, is it one day memory loss or is Sonny truly a silly cat?
Cats are spoiled not silly.
Cats are not silly, how can any creature that gets everything provided for them be called silly?
My monster gets meat everyday and there are many people who can't afford meat everyday. He gets bought things and has a warm place to sleep, which he does a lot by the way.
Its a good life a cat has, they are spoiled not silly.
