    That is what they do. Always on their terms.

    Our last cat refused to move with us when we moved house. Ran away and kept turning up at the old house but refused to be captured. 11 months later he started turning up on our doorstep pacing up and down and shouting to be let in. No apology no nothing. We have a dog now.

    Dogs have owners, cats have staff.

    If you go into a branch of "Pets at Home" near us you will invariably see a black and white female cat sitting on the counter. She visits the shop every day (they feed her) and then goes home when the shop closes in the evening.

    She has been doing it for years apparently.

    If not on the counter the cat can often be found sleeping in the cat toy and food section.

    We acquired a cat when she started stealing our cat's food. Then she got pregnant so my kind hearted mum made her a fantastic bed in the garage to have the kittens but she refused, and sat on the kitchen step until my kind mum brought the bed into the house, whereupon she gave birth to five kittens. She ruled the house after that.

    We had a cat who spent all day in my last school. He would sleep on the sofas in reception. When visitors came he would sit on their laps. In the school holidays he could be found on the station platform. He was a very sociable cat.

    A cathedral service has heard tributes paid to a cat that achieved social media fame by hanging out at his local supermarket.

    Garfield died in the car park of his beloved Sainsbury's store in Ely, Cambridgeshire, in July.

    Sounds suspicious to me.
    'Died in the car park' eh?

    We have a cat who visits people in the neighborhood...some we know and some not.She sometimes disappears for a night or two. We have learned not to worry. The other night we saw her disappearing into the driveway of a house down the road,not at all nervous,as if she lived there (well, they probably think she does).

    Cats who live in car parks tend to have short lives...unfortunately.

    "Yeah. Right. Whatever. Food. Now."

    I love the way cats treat humans with the contempt they deserve. Dogs are daft enough to worship us. Probably goes back to some long-standing apex predator rivalry from a few million years ago.
