Hey, Mooh -- great to see your name on the board again.

We had a tomcat like your George. His name was Bill, and he was both a biter and a pisser -- preferring doors and baseboards to bags, and responsible for the destruction of rather too many books on bottom shelves. But definitely just full of je ne sais quoi.

Bill was the source of a family joke, the one about the "free cat". He came into our lives at the back door, at which he pounded when he finally decided to get off the street, and cost us thousands over the 13 years he lived with us, not only in vet bills (nearly $1,000 in his first two weeks) but also to repair the havoc he so casually wrought.

Peace to you, too!

Not anymore. George left us last month. No more biting my feet as I slept, no more pissing in random bags/kits/purses left open, no more pissing in random shoes, no more pissing on the bathroom floor beside a clean litter box, no more chasing the 90lb dog from his bed, no more biting the dogs in their sleep, no more friends arriving and making sure George wasn't present before they'd enter, no more vet visits where they had to call in extra staff to handle him. All that said, he did have his own je ne sais quoi, a style of his own, both endearing and maddening.

No condolences required, he was that one most challenging rescue. The exception that tests the rule.

Peace, Mooh.

Ancient Egypt invented the ultimate final cat flap into the afterlife. More than any other animal, cats were mummified.
hundreds of thousands of them.
There are millions of human mummies. Grumbracher used to grind up mummies for a pigment called mummy white in oil paint for artists.

I had to change our two cat flaps for Worthy/Snotcat. He was a bit too big to manage the standard cat ones we had before. I think the only “foreigner” we had through ours was Furball who decided he could let himself in and out before he decided he would settle here but that was fine.

If any cat has a choice of two cat-flaps, a large one and a small one, it will invariably pick the larger one.
But how funny that a scientist should design such a thing to let a cat out! Rather sweet of him.
The problem with cat-flaps is that they let other cats IN, and we sometimes had 'visitors', much to the indignation of our resident cats.
Our neighbours have a high-tech system - each of their three cats has a collar with some sort of electronic 'key' on it, which allows the flap to open. I believe this can be achieved using the micro-chip which vets put under the skin of various pets.
That tame red deer in our village ('BamBam') has been microchipped!

Newtonian Cat Doors
Did Newton bridge the worlds of the indoor cat and outdoor cat?

When he wasn't envisioning space cannons and figuring out what holds the universe together, Isaac Newton applied his considerable intellect to other problems -- such as ways to keep the cat from scratching on the door.

Newton never married and cultivated few friendships, but he did make room in his life for cats and dogs. Sources vary on exactly how this relationship played out. Some contemporary historians label him an animal lover, while other accounts tell doubtful tales regarding a pet dog named Diamond. Some historians even doubt he owned pets at all
The story goes that at the University of Cambridge Newton's experiments were interrupted constantly by his cats scratching at his office door, so he summoned the Cambridge carpenter and had him saw two holes in his door: a large hole for the mother cat and a small one for her kittens. Of course, since the kittens simply followed their mother through the larger hole, the smaller hole remained unused.

"Whether this account be true or false, indisputably true is that there are in the door to this day two plugged holes of proper dimensions for the respective egresses of cat and kitten," wrote a Newton contemporary some years after the scientist's death [source: Wright].

The jury is still out on this story. Newton could have invented one of the world's most popular cat accessories -- or somebody at Cambridge just liked to drill random holes.

Poor Ebbie,it's heartbreaking to lose a pet, dog or cat. It hurts so much.
A lady came to our door this afternoon. She lives opposite Sam the Skull's owners. She told us that the poor little thing died at 2am this morning. The chap who is the owner's boyfriend found him dead beside his water bowl. He thought it could have been kidney problems, and has buried him in their garden.
I'm afraid I cried, imagining the little animal in the night suffering and no-one coming to help.
However, he was very old, and perhaps this is for the best. I don't think his owners were exactly perfect cat-lovers. Husband is very sad too. Ah well...

Rich-joy, if my experience is anything to go by, the Universe is working on the challenge of putting the right cat in your way.

It is entirely possible, however, that the Universe is more interested in finding a human who’s right for a certain cat than in connecting a certain human with the cat of his/her dreams.

Well, it's been 9 months today (the 12th Sept, Down Under), since my beloved tuxedo cat, Hector Lysander, returned to Source to be with My Beloved Paul (77 months today, since he departed :(
- and even though I haven't finished decluttering and cleaning the house by a long shot, I am really hanging out for my next feline companion.
I even went to meet one this morning (I want a chunky ginger Tabby tom!) but we weren't the right fit.

My Hector loved to be held with his arms draped around my neck (actually, anyone's neck would do - especially blokes' :) and I need a cat that likes cuddling!!!

Someday My Prince Will Come, perhaps ..... surely that's not only in Disney cartoons :) - but it keeps the thread musical on Mudcat, haha!

Hee hee keberoxu, he certainly did! I'm finding comfort in remembering our little moments in the sunshine outside on The Bench, and the hundreds of plates of best cat food I gave him, plus bowls of milk etc and diced chicken. The trouble with pet-ownership is their lives are naturally much shorter than ours and we have to brace ourselves for The End every time.
I've just spoken with our lovely neighbour's daughter the Vet nurse, and she still hasn't been able to find out what happened to Spirit eventually, but she too thinks he's no longer with us.

The saga of Spirit the white tomcat,
who seems to have felt crowded out of the household
that he shared with humans and numerous other cats,
has enlivened Mudcat threads no end in recent times.
It sounds like "Sam the Skull" 's story is near its end.

I too wonder at the disregard and indifference of the humans
who are responsible for their pet cat.
Thank goodness that the tomcat lives in a neighborhood
where there are compassionate neighbors when he is in need.

I never shall forget Senoufou/Eliza's account of the night
that the bedroom window, screen-free, was open,
and Spirit/Sam jumped up to the window from outside
and down into the bedroom
and scared the heck out of her.

Likewise, Eliza. Cats don't stay where they're not content, so I think you can be confident that Sam was happy with you on The Bench. And he is now and always has been his own cat, so he dispenses his presence where he pleases.

Haha Charmion, Watson sounds such a scream! Cats do like to sniff feet. Our Siamese would probably have done a passing wee on each player's leg, just to be friendly of course.
No sign of MickeyPickey/Sam today, and I just hope he's either passed away or has been taken to the vet. He couldn't have gone on in that state. Although he wasn't actually my cat, I do miss him already. And I hope his last few months over the summer were happy ones on The Bench at my side. (gulp. tears)

Poor Sam/Spirit. He should be in a warm nest at home, not out in the street.

In other news, we had a (socially distanced) tune session at our house the other day, and Watson appeared to check out the guitar player’s ankles. He did not approve of the fiddle, which I think is too loud for his taste, but took his time to assess each player. Then I suspect he repaired to the bedroom to report his findings to Isobel.

We've had a very worrying time with 'Spirit' aka 'MickeyPickey' or Sam the Skull. He's refused any food for days and was getting thinner and thinner. He sat on The Bench in the pouring rain soaked to the skin, so I lifted him into our sitting room and put him on the sofa on a thick warm blanket.
He seemed so weak, so I rang our delightful neighbour's daughter (the veterinary nurse) and she came round (socially distancing of course)
She kindly carried him back to his house up the road, but no-one was in.
Yesterday I noticed he was lying on his side in the road gasping. I hurried across and lifted him onto the pavement. He couldn't stand up, and he's just skin-and-bone.
The vet nurse went out later but he'd vanished, yet his owners were still out. She's tried messaging them but no reply so far. We're both very worried and a bit angry at such neglect.
May have an update later, but we both think it's the end for the poor chap. Oh dear :(

Yes keberoxu, that was our band of marauders posting an adult pheasant through the cat-flap by pushing from behind outside and pulling from the front inside the house! And carrying a huge rat like two men with a stretcher (seen by the furniture-restorers at their unit quite far from our house) Also poking and tormenting Hissing Sid, the 5ft long grass snake, as he lay curled up behind my neighbour's patio plant pot.
Not to mention Simon the seal-point Siamese in the house-before-that, who often stole items from clothes lines, and particularly loved bras!
Brought me several through the cat-flap, and I had to go round the neighbourhood with a very red face, trying to find the owners!

Yes, Senoufou, I recall a post --
was it from you, or from another person owned by cats? --

describing how all the cats in the house
assisted the cat that went out hunting, and
brought a trophy back to the house,
but found it too large or difficult to get it through the cat-flap;
so all the cats gathered around the cat-flap,
indoors and out,
manoeuvering the prize through the flap and into the house ...

When we had five cats in our last house, (a mixture of three Siamese, a pedigree British Black Shorthair and a poor tabby stray) they all used to roam about in our large garden and over the ditch into the farmer's fields. The cat-flap was never locked, so they could come and go all night as well.
The 'offerings' that came through that cat-flap were mind-blowing. Poor terrified living creatures, dead ones, guts and bits. We had harvest mice, rats, a large pheasant, baby rabbits, wood pigeons, slow-worms and so on.
I rescued many of these and put them safely back into the field. But some sadly needed dispatching, which was very distressing. And others scuttled into other parts of the house. We had a mouse hiding in the dining room, a rat under the fridge, a pipistrelle bat clinging to the curtains. It was utter madness and I was ashamed at the carnage, being a member of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
In our bungalow here in this village, we didn't let the three remaining cats out at night, and they grew so old and decrepit they hardly went out at all except to sit with me on The Bench. So no gruesome offerings, thank goodness.

The mention of rabbits reminded me of my fathers cat, Spot. Dads house was two storeys at the front but three at one side and the back. Thus the door from the basement led out onto the garden and then fields.

Spot was a large Tom-cat he used to catch rabbits, presumably ate the majority of them but ALWAYS left the back legs on the steps leading from the basement as a "present" for Dad. He did this every week, sometimes on two or three occasions.

After almost two months of isolation, with both of us working at home (you in your small study, and I in mine), Watson (black tomcat) is now the factory timekeeper. He gets us up in the morning, informs us when it's time to stop reading the paper and get to work, and then at five o'clock starts yelling to announce the cocktail hour. If I'm still at my desk at six, he starts relentlessly nagging, standing on the desktop in front of the monitor and scrambling over my shoulders.

His vocabulary is limited, but he never fails to get my attention.

Sister Isobel (also black, rather smaller and much quieter) stands by and gracefully accepts the benefit of timely meal delivery.

Most of the migratory birds have returned from their winter quarters, so the cats spend much of their time chittering at the mourning doves that hang about on the back fence. The rabbits grazing on the lawn don't excite them nearly as much; I guess the cats consider the rabbits a bit out of their weight class.

My aunt's cat, Allegro, was a mighty hunter who ate the entire corpse EXCEPT the gall bladder, which he would leave in a high-traffic area apparently on purpose. Allegro was famous for having slain a weasel that got into the house, and -- again -- eating much of it. The weasel was a bit much even for Allegro's appetite so, as well as the gall bladder, the head remained to allow identification of the victim.

Our cats adapted easily to our shift from full-time employment to pensioner status and, now that the isolation rules have us at home all the time, they are self-appointed keepers of the household routine. Watson (with Isobel in reserve) gets Himself up at or before the crack of dawn, depending on when he detects the first twitch of an eyelid and, if the smell of coffee doesn't extract me from the scratcher, either Watson or Isobel returns to the bedroom at about seven o'clock to do the job.

I have a big, fat book manuscript to edit, so I spend the day battering the keyboard. Watson comes to the study at five o'clock if Himself has not already delivered the afternoon treat, and again at six o'clock to bring me downstairs to make human supper.

I think he might have been a foreman or maybe a sergeant in a previous life.

Naughty naughty Sam the Skull came to our BACK door this morning. That's BinkyWinky's terrain. Hr had such a smirk on his face. I got a dish of food and waved it in front of him to get him into our kitchen, through the house and out the front door. If not, there'll be a terrible fight when Binky comes forth in about an hour. Sam is a savage gnasher of any rivals.
I then put out some bits for the birds on the lawn, and a huge selection of my avian friends arrived. Crows, starlings, blackbirds, a robin, the fat wood pigeons.

The only problem I can foresee with Mela is that apparently she's an Olympic Gold Champion at hunting, and daily brings her trophies into the house.

People complain about dogs in the house,
knocking things over, Donuel, and they forget
that cats in the house
can cause just as much mischief and mayhem!

I can just picture what you describe,
like so many dominoes.

This morning my wife tripped a bit on the carpeted cat tree, so Lioness jumped from the top of the cat tree sending it into the grow lights and in turn knocking down a hibiscus tree into another potted hibiscus tree and into a lamp.

All is restored with an extra weight lifting weight to anchor the cat tree.

Oh my word keberoxu, I'd completely forgotten about little Mela!
Sybil (my niece) lives a long way away from her mother, in Edinburgh.
Dundee is quite far, (about an hour-and-a-half) and niece doesn't drive. No visitors are allowed to Coronavirus patients in hospitals.
I'm sure the kindly neighbours will take care of Mela. She has a catflap, so food can be given outside the door.
I'm so glad to have Sam the Skull and BinkyWinky around still, they're very affectionate and consoling.

Eliza/Senoufou's sister is in hospital,
and she is the one with a rescue cat.
Hopefully the niece is looking after Mela.
