    We have a cat that's about eight months old. We've never given it a name.
    It's a waste of time naming cats- you could call their name until you're
    blue in the fucking face and the fuckers'll only come to you if and when
    THEY feel like it. Unlike dogs.

    I think I might call it Incognito. Or Nomen Nescio or something. That's
    not really like giving it a name.

    Is it?????

    Call the moggy b'st'd '**** off', then it'll wonder where it's next meal's
    coming from - b'st'd things!

    I used to breed German Sheperds and named one of them 'Here' - well you can
    imagine he was the most confused fucker on earth when I finished with him.
    He was the biggest (12st) b'st'd of his kind I'd ever seen, and seen since -
    he was a good lad!

    Mine come when they're called, and they each respond to their own name. In fact,
    they act more "dog-like" than my dogs do. And you can sit a plate of human food
    in front of them and they won't touch it. They've been trained not to. It wasn't
    all that difficult.

    Neither myself nor SWMBO want the damned creature. One night way back in
    July at about 3 in the morning we heard a-screeching and a-mewling from
    the back garden right under the bedroom window. When I went out to
    investigate I discovered a little ball of fluff hiding in the six inch
    gap between the garden shed and the fence, crying its eyes out.

    The little fucker wouldn't come out of its hidey-hole so I left it a
    saucer of mashed-up dog food and went back to bed. the next day the food
    was gone and it was back behind the shed. Eventually when my teenage lad
    got home from school he somehow managed to get in and grab the kitten.

    Its fur was matted all over and full of all sorts of shit (yes, real
    shit) and it stunk to the high heavens. It also had some lacerations on
    its legs and back- I think perhaps it had been attacked by a fox but had
    somehow escaped and managed to get into our garden- no mean feat as we
    used to have rabbits and I had sealed every gap in the fence.

    I don't think it was even six weeks old when it showed up in the garden.

    Anyway it took up residence in the house, usually hidden away in the
    darkest corner it could find and would only appear, tentatively, to eat
    the food we left out on the kitchen floor. A real scaredy-cat :).
    Obviously traumatised. We phoned the Cat's Protection League and they
    told us they'd come to collect it for re-homing as soon as they could.

    Within a week, it was bullying our King Charles spaniel and forever
    trying to suckle from him (a highly optimistic cat, I think). We bought a
    cat litter tray and cat food and stuff, thinking it would only be a
    temporary situation.

    So, after three months, we wondered where the hell the Cat's Protection
    people were and phoned them again. The bastards had no record of our
    original call and were totally unaware that we wanted rid of the cat! In
    all that time the cat had become very comfortable in our home and Rolo
    the spaniel was its best friend. They sleep together every night (well,
    the cat will curl up and go to sleep on Rolo's head) and they've invented
    this chasing game all round the house which actually appears to have
    rules by which the game is played, each animal taking turns at being the
    chaser and the chased.

    The cat refuses to leave the house, except occasionally sitting just
    outside the back door. A few times we've accidentally closed the door
    while it was outside and within seconds it would be scrabbling at the
    door and hanging off the windowsill staring in the window with (I swear)
    a look of panic in its eyes, crying. It won't even go outside to crap,
    still insisting on using the (now far too small) litter tray just inside
    the back door.

    Still no word from the CPL to tell us they're coming to collect, but the
    cat being here is still only considered by myself and SWMBO a temporary
    measure, even after all this time, and therefore the cat has no name.
    Neither of us would shed any tears if the CPL DID finally show up and
    take the cat away although the kids might be a little upset.

    As I've typed this post, the dog and cat have been playing that damned
    game of theirs through every room in the house, upstairs, downstairs, in
    my lady's chamber, distracting me, driving me nuts and entertaining me in
    equal measure :)

    My latest addition came from the storm drain across the street. A 91-year-old
    man climbed down there and rescued her because it was about to rain and she'd
    drown. In fact we got 3" about 1 1/2 hours later, and she was only about 3-4
    weeks old, so she wouldn't have made it.

    I've had some basket cases in my time. Most of mine are here because they're not
    rehomeable and would be killed if they weren't.

    >I don't think it was even six weeks old when it showed up in the garden.


    That's still pretty small. Too young to test for FeLV, at any rate.

    I have one whose first action as a kitten was to try to bite and claw me (he's
    gone the other way entirely now.) And one that literally tried to climb the
    basement walls to escape. And one that *did* bite me, to the bone, two days
    after he'd had his rabies shot, so I had to do the whole quarantine thing. He
    doesn't bite anymore - he just had to learn how to react to people.
    Unfortunately he's slowly dying of a pituitary tumor. <sigh>

    It *is* temporary, in a way. They lead short lives compared to ours.

    None of mine are allowed outside and they don't want to go anyway. Why should
    they? This is Feline Nirvana here. ;)

    I love each and every one of mine, even if they do drive me crazy at times. I
    much prefer their company over most people I know. I expect that's because I
    know a lot of people that I really don't want to, if you know what I mean.

    We have lots of free-for-alls here, and I have a big house so it can involve
    extensive room. Fortunately it's all play - it's really quite unusual to have 8
    cats and two dogs who all get along very well. And they do indeed. The cats
    think they're dogs, and the dogs are convinced they're cats, so it all works
    out. :)
