I saw a raccoon when I visited Canada and was impressed at how neatly it ate cat food - unlike my cat Cathode who prefers to take it into the hall, drop it on the carpet, then eat it.

No carpets in our house so it makes clean up easier.

Raccons are very smart critters. Tough too. I've only ever had one cat that could take a racoon on and win.

Makes clawing difficult too.

A couch, foam, cardboard, and a carpet covered cat stand satisfy those urges ...

Buffy is a polydactyl and can use her front paws like hands. She picks up the food with a grip, plays hockey with it, then eats it.

She'll also sit on the arm of your chair and take popcorn from your bowl one-by-one and eat it out of her "hand", not unlike a raccoon

Aaaawww. Wow, what a pussycat! Confirms my theory that mackerel tabbies are the brightest.

Oh yeah ....

Our cat (see previous posts showing cat on couch) comes and goes as she pleases, displays affection when she needs a scratch, food, play etc, sleeps anywhere anytime she feels like, does whatever she want's while I have to work that bit extra to pay for cat food, vet bills (she's only gotta sneeze once), collars, cat toys, cat accessories (scratch post) etc. etc.

Let me assure you, our cat has life worked out very well. I think she is secretly building a plan to get to Planet10's house (cat paradise).

Sigh....

Would that be the big fluffy thing on the sofa? Also gorgeous. I'm sure there are cats I don't like. Certainly. There must be. Laws of probability and all that. Mind you, that doesn't stop them all from being completely manipulative bar stewards. I'm told you just have to accept this.

On the positive side, what can beat a cat welcoming you through the front door, squeaking excitedly as they leap up onto your bed, and above all as they slooch in that elegant slow-motion perch towards your welcoming hand?

Well, I once had a girlfriend that no sooner were you through the door than there was a tongue in your ear and very friendly leg wrapped around mine.



She had the friendliest Border Collie in the world.
