Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
They sound lovely Anne. I had five cats at once for quite a while. If one passed away, I usually got two kittens. (I found the kittens were company for each other and felt more reassured together. They also played kitten games without irritating the older cats.) Trouble is, the policy of 'lose one, get two' results in rather a lot of cats around the place. But then I had a huge garden surrounded by fields and the cats enjoyed our log fire in the winter. Our present house is much smaller.
Siamese cats are always very talkative. Ours have a wide vocabulary. They also have a very naughty tendency to have a quick wee on any object to mark territory. (I've always had neutered males) You can see them laughing when you chase them after they've done it. Dreadful.

Minty is still in out thoughts. It's over a week now since he was put to sleep, and the grief continues. I half expect to see him again when I go into the kitchen early in the morning. He used to rub his head against my dressing gown sleeve and try to stop me filling the kettle at the sink. We loved him so much...
