If you die alone with your cat, it won't hesitate to eat you. ... In cases where these people owned dogs, their pets would usually go several days
without resorting to eating the owner's body. However, a cat would only wait a day or two. The phenomenon is called “postmortem predation."

This is crazy, but when I replied earlier the cat was laying next to me, I went out the back for a smoke and she followed me outside and bang, she
caught this poor little sod, this is the second one I've managed to save from her, 4-2 to the cat so-far, 😥
She gets to keep the tail, that's *snipped* now, but I'll take the rest of it to the fields at the back with my daughter in a wee bit 👍
I haven't seen a slow worm for years, I'd save one if I caught my cat with one.
People's gardens are so sterile these days, they seem to be declining, used to see loads as a kid.

Jealous, I'd love to hold a slow worm again, they are crazy creatures, I love how they wrap around your fingers and hands.
...we won at the rugby thanks, few fights in the 80 minutes lol, it was brutal, but promotion this season is looking promising.

Ah cool, you saved a life, unlucky cat haha!
...I would have stayed longer at the rugby club but I'm on medication which makes me feel drunk after 2 or 3 pints lol, probably shouldn't be posting
on ATS now.
My cat just turned her nose up to 35 pence tin of Wilko's cat food, I looked at her and said go and catch a mouse if you don't like it haha.
That's just showing affection, cat's rub your calves, kitten's will even play bite you but not hard - they do have very sharp teeth though so
sometime's hurt more than they intend.
Had cat's and dog's all my life, even had goldfish and bird's as well on occasion so really an all round animal lover (not snake's and spiders
We have an aging photograph from when I was a child of our cat sleeping snuggled up to our dog whom was very protective of her.
Here are some tale's.
There are also plenty of tales of Cat's chasing burglars which sound's at first quite funny but are actually true and of cat's lost thousands' of
miles from there owners somehow finding there way back home as if there is a psychic bond or something but they are not like Dog's, dog's are loyal
and there love is unconditional while cat's are very much still deciding if they are your pet or you are there pet.
There are countless anecdotal tales of cat's suffocating sleeping baby's but what about a cat saving a child?. nypost.com...
Back in the dark ages a plague ravaged Europe, a plague that killed million's and it may have been so bad because just before the plague a certain
pope whom apparently did not like cat's had declared all black cat's devil's and his word's had led to a mass culling of black cat's which since at
that time nearly all domestic cat's in Europe were black meant that these necessary pest controllers were then absent and the rat population boomed -
cue the plague finding it far more easy to spread via that rat population.
His word's also led to the superstition that black cat's were somehow unlucky, well they were since he caused them to be killed off but not in the
way the superstition claimed, also they became more associated with all thing's evil in the mind's of the simpleton's of the time leaving a lasting
legacy of superstition.
Now it is a probably fact however that owners with multiple pet's ARE more likely to be eaten if they die since then a pack mentality is at play
among the pet's of the household but that is far more likely were there are many pet's in a house whom are already vying with one another for status
within there social hierarchy and far less likely were there is a single or just two pet's and there owner.
