Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Ah Jon that's so lovely! He's obviously very, very attached to you!

When I had five (!) cats, all Siamese, I used to walk daily down to my neighbour's house for a coffee and a natter. The houses in that village were quite far apart, and I went along a little path to get there. Behind me, one behind the other, always in the same order, were all five of my cats.

Pauline used to watch out for us at her sitting room window, and laugh like anything. Part of the attraction, it has to be said, was the pile of bits of chicken and ham she always had ready for them.

It was Pauline who rang me one day to say all of them had cornered Hissing Sid, the large grass snake, and were poking him as he lay coiled up on her patio. We managed to remove the cats out of harm's way and gently get Sid into the field on the end of a broomstick. (A grass snake can give a nasty bite, although they're not venomous. Besides, poor Sid...! He was hissing like anything, probably terrified!)
