Blotting Paper

Cats are like blotting paper. They don't have that doggy loyalty or enthusiasm, but when people feel out of sorts, they hover around tactfully for a while before landing on your lap and absorbing whatever sadness or anger the lapee is feeling.
They make themselves deliberately heavy so you don't get up and move on to useless activities, and they purr quietly and huskily from time to time to remind you that they are there.

1thechefsDear Cat. I'm afraid it's gonna be Battersea for you when she leaves. You have one other chance of survival. Try and sneak next door, make out you're a stray, and perhaps they'll feed you?

Dear Cat, sorry for the comments, you are probably loved more than anything.
No need to get afraid, you will be cared for, fed and watered. But if she refuses to look after you then you have no alternative but to do a no.1 over her guitars?

Helen, I always think that cats are like furry eiderdowns, just the comfort one needs...

So sorry to hear about McDad, and send you all the good wishes I can to help in whatever way they can...
