    That would be amazing if true! I tend to doubt it. Or is that your job?

    It's not my job. - I don't know the cat.
    Would be cool to have a cat at work though..

    For a cat to correlate what it sees on the screen, to an actual location, would be astounding! If this were true, I'm sure the cat brain experts would like to know about it.

    Cats are Satan Spawn creatures of pure evil intent, designated by all that is holy to be Demonic entities of ill intent. Most wars and death on Earth were instigated by these shadow beings through subtle influences and the well timed Purr.

    They protect children




    My cat guarded my chickens.
    Chased out a neighbors cat that had jumped
    inside the fenced chicken area.
    I didn't think my cat could as it took to sleeping
    just outside.
    But, when called to duty, it leaped in and
    chased the neighbors cat to the property line.
    The chicken noise alerted me to come look.

    That was a subtle ruse to lull you into its deeper plan and the neighbor cat was in on it. Most do not realize the telepathic communications between these beasts as all they hear are the meows and purrs. When you do hear a Cat fight at night that is actually clan chanting and underworld incantation.

    My cat ran away after 4 minutes of amalgamation to his new home, last week.
    Have been looking for him since he ran out.
    I bought him in North London; 15.5 miles away.

    I look for him at night, I'm getting to know the neighbours, I'm dispatching missing posters; I've got his microchip number and it's now being registered to me with an alert of where he went missing with my details on it while ownership is being transferred.
    I've reported him missing in local vets and online and I even thought I saw him (I now think it was another cat) and went to a national cat charity's local branch who loaned me a spare humane cat trap for free that a neighbour has agreed to set up where I thought I saw my cat.

    I know I had him for 4 minutes and on the trip back to mine, I hate that he's missing and I feel bad for making a cat stray.

    He's a displaced outdoor access cat that has been neutered.

    Update...

    Last week I thought I found my new cat, and as a formality really, took it to my local vets to have it scanned; it had a microchip, it was registered as missing; It wasn't my cat... The vet kept the cat, was able leave a message with the owner's voicemail, I phoned back at the end of the day and the owner had come forward and that missing cat was reunited.
    That night my good friend bought me a new kitten she cat out of the kindness of her heart.
    Last night, I got a call from someone saying they've found my cat; I had my doubts, but they came over, and then last night we all went to a 24/7 vets at 11 pm.. It also had a microchip; it was my cat - so now he's home. He's a happy lovely big ol' softy 2 year old (He turned 2 in July when he was missing)... and my new kitten is a Siamese mix she cat who's now 9 weeks old, I'm going to get her vaccinated this week.
    He's black/black, she's black/brown (can pass for a black cat until you see her in the light).

    I'm now getting these 2 cats used to each other. He's been neutered and vaccinated and is healthy (thank God); was found a little dusty and hungry, but he's eating and grooming and he loves to be groomed (He's a rag doll mix)...

    I haven't gotten a name for the 9 week year old she cat yet.
    I'm thinking Batman for her name j/k

    My cat
    [​IMG]
    (seller's photo).

    My cat when he was younger:

    (seller recorded this video).

    and this is my kitten;
    https://www.instagram.com/p/Bz5_U3cnlzR/
    https://www.instagram.com/p/B0FNN6rH4Oy/

    [​IMG]
    'The morning after the night after the evening I got her.'
    She came down with my friend who came down with her pet Pomeranian/ sweetest dog ever/good smart dog; she spent the night hissing at this sweet dog and almost lovingly drew on my rock n' roll Guns N' Roses camp London Soho blah blah blah my me mojo backround and I almost called her Punk out of love and intended to lovingly call her the B'...
    That was then... Before she eventually stopped hissing at the dog who was nothing but sweet and well behaved towards her.

    Then I found out she's a sweetheart the next day and those name ideas didn't seem like my cat/kitten.

    She was birthed with a name/suggestion name, but is so young that name can be changed, and... It's not a rhyme with a Jamaican derogatory word I've learned growing up here that if I ever called out, people could see this name that, no, this name didn't rhyme with this Jamaican word I know, it's a bonafide homophone with this word any bad minded dirty minded Jamaican talking would see; so, this kitten needs an official name and I'm playing with;
    Mewhummid (because my rag doll mix cat had a Muslim name but then the lady changed one letter (she's not racist or nothing she said she was herself was Turkish British herself and my cat was born in another part of England before moving with them to London before relocating and going missing in my neck of the woods in my part of the country) and my cat's name sounds so cool and perfect - love that cat, cool name)! - and my kitten, also came from a Turkish family (by chance). She comes from a town over from me in my part of London.

    Her head reminded me of Batman when she slept that night I met her and still does from an angle. Still does.

    @The Rhetoric of Life
    Gotta keep the newbie inside to figure out where the food is now located.
    After a few day, you might . .


    Sometimes I have a cat I can trust to let out in the day time
    and call in at night.

    Mine was the fifth home in this neighborhood for a really, personable cat.
    She had a sweet personality.
    Well one dark night I was calling her in and between 2 houses
    3 houses uphill of the street, 4 cats appeared.
    They sat on the side walk a few minutes barely illuminated by
    the street light, then each went there own direction. Blackie to me.
    She passed of old age, at least 17 years old. I did a hospice and
    comforted her to her last breath. Great rat killer, and ate them too.

    I've seen cats pass stones and no what a cat in pain looks like.
    But, they get old, emaciate, stink, and take weeks to finally pass.
    A visit to the vet's office is hardly compassionate. Maybe a house call one.

    Since late morning and continuing though early afternoon,
    all 3 cats - sleep.

    Like a baby sleeping, one hopes no disturbance awakens them ;)

    2 or 3 are known to have been rambunctious before sunrise.



    Normally, on a nice, quiet day
    Pretty Boy, an Orange and White tuxedo 3 year old
    "Kitty", supposed to have been fostered in pregnancy but was just "fat"
    would make noises to go outside. Yet they sleep.
    Floosie, a smaller 3 year old is in between a house and a love outside cat.

    I wish I had a good, ranch style cat, like the departed Blackie age 17 RIP
    who was a rat killer while surviving coyote neighborhood clean outs of cats.

    Not that anyone asked but... I still haven't found a name for this kitten yet.
    She's on her course of vaccinations and when I take her in to get her 2nd course/top up vaccination, she'd be old enough to be micro chipped too, that's this month...
    My cat and kitten are cool, I went from having no cats to 2 cats, my cat and my now 11 week old she cat kitten.
    IMG_7184.JPG IMG_7302.JPG
    And my new cat who I got first but ran away when I got him home; now he's been reunited; has settled in alright...

    I want to get her spayed in September / October and let her out shortly after that... I don't trust my new tom cat who has been neutered;
    IMG_7165.JPG IMG_7173.JPG View attachment 92153 IMG_7284.JPG
    to not run away on me (again) -yet, and I got this kitten 1 week before I was reunited with my lost new cat, so I plan to let them out in October together...
    I can run that plan over with my vet when I take my kitten in for her 2nd course of vaccination this month and see what they say.

    My cat follows me around the neighborhood like a dog.

    He knows how to get out through the kitty door, but he can't figure out how to get back in through the kitty door...

    He runs out to greet (and beg for petting) everyone that walks by my house.

    He pees (sprays) in the house, but only on my subwoofer, and I dunno why he does it or how to get him to stop. Fortunately its easy to clean...

    He ate all the frogs.

    His name is Stalin (because he has a black nose that looked like a mustache when he was younger).

    I think my neutered alpha male tom cat going missing for 3 weeks and the kitten being a she cat baby cat helped my neutered alpha male tom cat bond with his new home;
    By the time my cat go to settle in bless him, he was hungry for food and affection and after some tlc and much needed grooming, he was more than happy be here with me and this she cat kitten I got given to me a week before my new cat was found...
    She on the other hand sorta had to go through the whole being dominated by him and that took her a night, but now they're both fine, and she was 9 weeks old when she met him anyway, but she came around after a night of objecting to his older cat teachings (he sat on her a couple of time and at first she was really not amused and my Ragdoll mix cat opened up a can of worms with my Siamese mix cat that first night he did that to her, but in the end took her barage in his stride as she really longed it out and was not amused by him that night).
    She was so polite to him all that day, treating his bed he likes here like lava all day making sure to not touch his space in her wild 'Jungle Cat urges moments of wild kitty time', as soon as he sat on her that night, dominating her and 69'ing her licking her, she went back to his bed she took extra effort to avoid, and put her claw scent into it and looked pissed off and came at him from every angle for at least like 3 hours after 20 minutes of him sitting on her/licking her after he decided to wait until they were both relaxing before doing that, that night.

    Cats are actually given a bad press because they are both deferential and polite. They are seen as aloof because they sometimes will not look directly at you but that is because the direct gaze is an almost universal sign of challenge to animals. For a cat the direct gaze, once granted, is often the sign of the deepest trust and love, since it says the animal is not at all afraid of you.

    Regardless of excuses

    Let us agree there exists a unique Cat / their people Relationship
    not similar to any other domesticated animals


    The dog had purpose as did the pig, horse, cattle, chickens, etc.
    But "The Cat" found a special place as 'leader' of the realm.
    Even to command "us". coming kitty

    Truly, Honestly,
    no snark I promise

    Is We Co Habitat With The Cat.

    No master slave relationship ala dog, etc.

    Co Habituating with a cat is "unique"

    Well expressed in Hallmark
    9 Lives of Christmas.
    or the cat saves boy from dog video.

    I knew a guy who had a blind cat. I dunno what caused his blindness, but he was able to see at one time. He knew how to get around the house ...most of the time. Occassionally he would get lost or confused. He would then stop where he was and start meowing. The only fix for this was to go get him and put him on top of the livingroom couch. His owner called it 'resetting the cat.'

    Yesterday I let my cat out for the first time.
    He's 2, he was adopted in June, got out within minutes out the front where the street is and traffic and ran across the street and round the back of the other side of the road, I couldn't catch him, then I couldn't find him, and was found almost a month later in one piece about a mile away a little sticky and had gravel in his fur for being an displaced outdoor access cat.
    It's always been my plan, to have my new cat (and new kitten when she's old enough) to be outdoor access cats. He was found, has been in for 3 weeks.
    I blew his mind. I was so afraid of him running, I only showed him the garden from inside...
    I casually gave my new cat 1 clue as I picked him up, and carried him around my garden (ragdoll mix docile loverly warm cat); it was so perfect, it went so well.
    Got in - He acted like my kitten, I had a cat on me like glue.
    *Did not expect or mind that.
    This was after he sat down and to me, looked like he was working out if he dreamed it? He looked a little unsure.

    So I let him out a second time...
    Put him down, he ran to the tool shed, put his cat weight down, didn't want to be picked up, I got him in...
    Felt it went well..

    He then turned into a 'good' cat.
    He's a good cat anyway, but this cat to me looked like he was suddenly very well behaved, wasn't interested in playing with the kitten so didn't start a game (which was a surprise to me and a first time moment I witnessed that behavioral change which happened to be his first encounter with this kitten)... He went into good cat mode and ate his dinner.

    I tempted fate...
    I let him out a third time.

    He ran, hopped a fence, did not come when I called him and called out his secret dinner time word with treats on hand, he did not care.
    I called him, he meowed back from over the fence and I ain't hopping fences...
    He avoided me shouting meows as I called him.
    I lost sight of him, found him, lost sight for a while, looked for him, missed him, lost hope, ran into him where I started from, he shot me a cat kiss while running from me, or he starred at me and blinked and I took it as okay, but he still ran from me.
    (His personality is cheeky clown cat and his former owner sent me a video of him on roof tops)...
    I saw what direction he went in, didn't wanna panic, thatched my lawn with springtime rake, lost hope, he appeared, ran to the house but the wind blew the door shut/I might have shut it... either way, he hopped a fence, ASKED to be let inside my neighbours, went into a hiding spot that connects both of ours I feared he'd find on my side, saw he found it on that side, so I cleared the entrance, saw he was hiding there, I went back to finish up with my lawn I started when I decided I would be outside and calm (I went into some Buddhist teaching about self focus instead of freaking out about my cat); I then decided to go back to him after 10/15 minutes, saw he was okay, decided to fetch a favourite cat toy, this helped; I saw he played with it, it's a toy on on a string with a wand; I noticed my cat smell it and all the visuals of myself in the world and my voices wasn't as effective as this toy; he built up the confidence to come out a bit with the toy; so I went in, grabbed the she cat kitten (who at this point was growing curious and nuts in lock down after having woken up)... I carried her out, saw him walking out of the hiding place near the exit/entrace, he walked away from me towards the lawn, not looking back at me or kitten, so I followed, he then glanced, saw the kitten, went into my flower bed, relieved himself, buried it, walked around, I went in with the back door open with the kitten... Then a minute later he walked up to the entrance/exit, I was inside and he looked at me and I said
    'You can come in y'know'...
    (or something like that)
    and he ran into the house, and I shut the door behind him.

    Yesterday (after this) he meowed to be let out, but, I haven't let him back out, yet.
    TBH, atm, it's spitting down with rain and he hasn't asked today, but, yesterday, he was asking a lot to be let out since he first saw the garden(s) (mine and my neighbours).
