ur Luna Is Not The Best House Dog In The World.. If Someone Knocks On Our Door The Worst She Does Is Sigh Cos They Woke Her Up.. So Lately We Hve Been Wonderin Why She Is Barkin At The Back Door All The Time.. She Barks, We Open The Door Cos We Think She Wants To Go Out For Her Business && She Just Runs Out Growlin && Snarling.. There Is Nothin There Though.. I Hve Been Out With Her, Me Mum Has Been Out With Her && Gary Has Been Out With Her.. None Of Us Can See What She Is Barkin At Or What Has Upset Her.. The Fireworks Was My First Thought Bt They Hve Been Finished For Weeks Now.. There Is Not Even The Odd Stray One That Ya Get For Days After Bommy Night.. When She Comes Back Inside After Bein Out It Is Lyk She Is On Edge Too.. So Somethin Is Upsettin Her.. Gary Has Even Hidden In The Garden Waitin For Luna To Kick Off && Then When She Does He Would Be In The Perfect Spot To See What It Was.. Except When She Did Kick Off, He Couldnt See A Thing.. Davidd Even Said It Might Be The Sock Robbers Bt Hes Just A Tw*t!!

s most of you will be aware these days, there is nothing we like more than a good cat story. Last year we told you the story of a cat that had been banned from a Tesco store after walking its aisles for more than a year. Furthermore, the cat’s owner said at the time that she was “a little confused” by the decision. Jo Harding said her male ginger moggy, named Pumpkin, had visited the Thorpe Marriott branch in Norfolk “most days” as it was close to their home. But as the Eastern Daily Press first reported the six-year-old pet had then been banned from the shop. At the time, Tesco said a food store wasn’t “the best place for a cat to be”.

Not Just Another Cat Story

ome people think that the internet was only ever invented for either cute pictures or stories of cats – who are we to argue with this tradition. However this story did actually make us all smile. Paul is a cat over in Liverpool’s South Parkway Station who, for the last ten years, has been parading around the station keeping an eye on staff and passengers alike. But now he has gone a step further and instead of becoming the stations mouser – like other more ordinary cats (sorry Larry) – Paul has been promoted to Chief of Customer Relations.

rm… I never was any good at forward planning and no your eyes are not deceiving you. When I decided to call this series of posts “Jammy Toast Dogs”, I had forgotten that Davidd and I also had some very interesting cats over the years who you might like to hear about also – none more so than Sooty. Actually I am not even sure if Sooty was a cat, he was more like a Panther the size of him. Sooty started life as a feral cat, born in Cammell Laird shipyard where there is an army of feral cats, I believe. He was captured by a cat charity and a lady in Bromborough was in the process of rehoming him and his family when we came across him. He had such a marvellous personality and was so tame and friendly for a feral cat that we couldn’t help but fall in love with him and give him a home. We had Max at the time – the killer German Shepherd, who hated cats – so what could possibly go wrong?

hose of you who may follow him on Twitter or if you had noticed Larry’s emotional pleas for his missing friend will be relieved to hear that Gladstone the Treasury cat is alive, well and was back at work this morning. Treasury officials spent the weekend desperately searching for the department’s official cat after he went missing over the weekend. Three-year-old Gladstone was believed to be on the loose around Westminster and officials put out an alert to all staff in a bid to track him down. If Gladstone hadn’t been found it would have proven a huge blow to staff and ministers because he’s rapidly become a favourite – not just with staff – but with voters on social media.

alcolm the cat has returned home after being missing for eight years. The tabby and white feline has been reunited with his owner after going missing eight years ago from his home in Devon. He was reunited with owner Susan MacDonald on Saturday after he was found about 20 miles away and a vet scanned his microchip. Mrs MacDonald said he was the same as when he went missing “but a little more rotund”. She said; “My animals mean the world to me and I was gutted when he went missing. I often used to think about him – it was the not knowing that I didn’t like.”
