    I've no idea what she gets out of it - some memories of her mother? - but Missy had a very long session trying to burrow into my chest in bed this morning through the duvet. No stroking is allowed - I just have to lie back and stay still while she does her stuff.

    Just reading that declawing conversation from the last page. We have a cat who never uses her claws. Even when she does that bunny kicking attack thing, it's always with no claws. We think it's just because she's so nice and gentle, doesn't want to hurt anyone. However, she will claw furniture and the carpet, just not humans. Here she is.

    She is honestly the nicest cat I've ever met. You know how some cats have moody moments? They'll have a swipe or hiss at you. She never does that, she is 100% good and pure.

    family together having a nap this evening. Max (the black/white cat) and Mcat (one of the white with black patch ones, the one on the right on the chair) are going on Tuesday. They all went to the vet this week and turned out that the tabby is male, as is the white with tabby patches. Don't know about the remaining white with black patches, think she is female (and is being called Ursula) but she is not happy being held/in the vet and both me and the vet forgot to check her sex when she was doing all the teeth/weight/heart checks and vaccination, so going to do that when I go back for the second vaccination jab after christmas. Frida, the mother, really hates the flea/worm treatment on the neck and I only got half of it on then she wouldn't let me stroke her/be near her and haven't got the rest on yet.
    Ursula is the least socialised - none of them hiss or bite or anything like that but they don't like being stroked/held, won't be around strangers. Four of the kittens come for food and I can stroke them whilst they are eating. Max and Mcat I can pick up (and do so more or less every day), the white with tabby doesn't let me pick him up and I can only manage to do so every two or three days, the tabby doesn't let me get anywhere near him unless he is eating (and hasn't since the move to the new house and the problems catching him). Ursula doesn't let me anywhere near and doesn't come for food (and hasn't come for food since I picked her up bringing them in from the shed). Hopefully they will get more friendly in time but I know the best thing is for me to hold and stroke them and I can't do that with Ursula.

    Missy managed almost the whole of Strictly on my lap this morning (iplayer), no doubt training for the SPOTY and Apprentice Marathon this evening.

    Our Edward is like that. He's never scratched or bitten me and the only nasty thing he has ever done is poo on me when he met our other cat for the first time. The other cats let him play boss in the house but he hides behind them should a strange puss wander into the yard. A gentle giant.

    Missy sauntered in from outside near the start of SPOTY, absolutely dripping wet. "Hmmm", she thinks, "How can I dry myself? I know, I'll jump on my pet human and rub it all over his lap."

    When I was about four, I genuinely thought cats were female dogs.

    Saul Goodman It's all good, man

    Chilli went missing for two days and came back tonight, carrying her left rear leg, so she's going to the vet tomorrow. :(

    One of the youngsters went missing for most of today. I could hear her crying and eventually found her, on the roof of the house. :D

    And I've adopted another cat.

    I've no idea what the total is now but I don't think 'cat sanctuary' would be too far from the mark. :facepalm:

    Bit like bella's face. "What is this thing? Don't think I'm sharing my food with it".
