    Default Miaow Miaow

    Our daughter sold her house and went flatting until she buys another and because there are no pets allowed at her flat we are looking after her two cats.

    It's not too bad but we need to have someone feed the cats when we go away in our motorhome. Luckily we don't have to much of a problem there.

    SWMBO feeds them and looks after them which is fine by me. I really don't want much to do with them - I just tolerate them. I'm looking forward to the day daughter takes them back which will be a bit of a wrench for SWMBO as she has become quite fond of them. We shall wait and see.

    SPCA would welcome your SWMBO with open arms.

    Really? She had no trouble getting a rental? Why not just buy another, I would hate renting after owning.

    CAts give you as much attention as you give them. You ignore them, they'll ignore you.
    You spend time with them, they follow you about like dogs, greet you at the door etc.

    My mum has learned this, having had to live with my cats.

    Hoover goes to her now, cause she started brushing him. Now she did this as she has a fit about fur on the floor, minute bits as it is....Hoover thinks she's being nice, as he enjoys being brushed. LOL.

    She was lucky. She heard about the flat coming free before it was advertised.

    The reason she sold is because of a break-up between her and her partner and she is waiting for the money to come through.

    Can she train Hoover to Hoover up his own fur?

    They keep them in seclusion, poke them with pointy sticks and generally rile them up to the point where they attack anything and everything, then release them into the wild as fully trained mother-in-laws.
