    Time to go home, or is it just that cat's actually can read? His name is Boris... answers on a post card.

    I'm not expecting many replies, but it amused me. Can he feel the force?

    More to the point, does he have opposable thumbs?
    Seriously, you should only really start worrying if he regularly picks up and reads the TES.:eek:
    One of our cat loves getting tore into the Guardian. Doesn't do it to any other paper. I just hope we aren't harbouring a Guardian hating Daily Mail cat?:oops:

    No, he's all Indy or Guardian, and I can remember buying the first edition of the Indy when I was at the LSE.

    He normally just likes a post it note on a bit of string, which makes it odd he is sitting on my computer table to my left.

    I would only start worrying if he starts posting
    There's probably a few on here he could give a run for their money:)

    Including me :D

    Cats cannot read. They despise reading and those who read. Your cat is saying one of two things:

    1. stroke me
    2. feed me

    It is worrying that you claim to own a cat but do not appear to know this. ;)

    Maybe he's reading the fluffy threads?

    Right now my cat is wet and loudly calling through the house. I shall chase it with a hair dryer!

    Little Nazi.

    Yes, you ARE a Nazi, @lanokia. How dare you treat your feline in that cruel fashion!

    He treats me in a cruel fashion! Wakes me up at ungodly times and now he's making the floor wet!

    Evil critter.

    You need to turn on the central heating.

    I'd like to see YOU catch a mouse in the dark whilst it's peeing it down WITHOUT getting wet. The ingratitude!

    Maybe someone is talking about controlled assessment and your CAT can recognise the word CAT! (My cat knows some words verbally, like chicken, fish, pussycat food etc)

    Every time I've stepped out my front door today the neighbour's cat has been stalking me, and trotting jauntily half a step ahead of me and getting under my feet wherever I go. Do you think he's trying to tell me a helicopter's crashed in the ravine by the old gold mine ten miles to the south west and two people need urgent medical help, or is he maybe just seeking attention?

    Oh for sure, my cats have assaulted me underfoot many a time, and once I went down hard, and was winded for 10 mins. Still they teach you a lesson or two about dainty footwork.

    My cat might be looking at herself (she's my avatar)....she's Daphne, daughter of Sabrina the cat rip.....

    Oh, shame. Boris is a boy, and he likes to keep me tap-dancing. Then there is Ghengis Kant, who is frankly Jack the Ripper in Ginger.
