    Over a period of more than a decade since we acquired this second-hand cat (now 14 years old), we have come to the conclusion that he doesn't think but only acts on instincts. Those instincts are eat and sleep on object of some description.

    He has just got over 2 week stint sleeping on top of a 1.8m tall cupboard. This is an amazing feat as this aged cat that needs twice-daily medication to stay alive also has a touch of arthritis and the ability to leap from the floor some 1.8m often requires multiple attempts, is both noisy and not good to furniture.

    For Kris, the advantage of the stove is that it is close to his food cupboard, the tin opener and the refrigerator. Those, plus someone to service his needs, are all he requires these days.

    That's why you don't get any dinner invites.

    Analog thinks puss at 14 would be tough and stringy and Mongo might like something young and tender instead.

    Thanks Odille. Mongo has his own tenderising techniques.

    In any event, on that subject, your Avatar seems to fit the bill for a younger , more suitable cat dinner......Hmmmm....

    Behave yourself mongo, stick to rodents and unwanted creatures that scurry underfoot.

    Kris has been off his food again (probably due to the stress of keeping an eye out for mongo). I will save some hairballs for you if you like.

    Thank you Peter, Odille and Mongo. I have not laughed so hard in a very long time.

    I'm a cat lover and had two foistered on me three years ago and though I love them dearly now, there have been times where I agree with Mongo that maybe a nice moggy dinner would be good.
    Like when they are playing chasy at three in the morning over my bed!!!!

    Peter. As for the second one I'm sure Kris's response would have been something along the lines of
    "I DONT'T CLEAN OTHER THAN MYSELF."
    Peter.
