For those who care to know such things, Lidl's own brand wet food is the most disgusting smelling cat food in the world, even worse than Felix Crunchy Crumbles with Pollack.

Yes, but does Pete eat it?  I don't think our interpretation of "disgusting" and a cats is quite the same!

Having said that, I buy Encore1 cat food for Zev, and the tinned chicken looks and smells like cooked chicken. I suspect it would be perfectly palatable to eat.

Footnote [1] : Sainsburys Encore, which is basically Applaws cat food, only cheaper!
Actually, it is rocket science.

The only thing he won't eat is supermarket own brand dry food.

I bought Pete a lovely new bed yesterday and he won't even look at it, preferring to curl up on my lap and fart.

Tilley destroyed the bed we got for her. The cardboard box she got* about two and a half is still going strong.

*/ Well more jumped into as I put it on the floor to crush down for recycling.

He may change his mind.  Zev originally turned her nose up at the heated bed that I bought, but now sleeps in it more than almost any other location.

Cats are not always the most consistent, or apparently logical of animals!

I went to Huddersfield and back today for a family funeral and as I wasn't going to be back before 2130, a friend popped in to give Pete his tea. She gave him a whole 100g pouch (I usually portion it out over the evening) and while she was changing his water, her nephew gave Pete a 50g pouch he'd brought from home! Pete ate the lot, and since I got home 20 minutes ago, has been trying to convince me that he's starving.

Yeah, YOU didn't feed him that is why he is hungry, you evil servant.

If I feed Pumpkin when I get home from work and then go out, she tries to tell Pingu that she hasn't been fed when he gets home. We had to resort to notes.

My upstairs neighbours have just shown me photos of Pete in their flat, sitting on their cat's climbing tree, looking out of the window.  ;D

When I get home from work Pete is usually either waiting inside the front door, or he comes out into the stair to shout at me as I make my way up. Tonight when I got in, there was no sign of him; he wasn't in the flat.

Turns out he spent the afternoon upstairs visiting Momo!

Pete and I went for a walk tonight. He climbed a tree to the top and convinced himself he'd got stuck, but eventually worked it out. A man asked if he could steal him. Another man took a photo of him. He got agitated at three dogs, only one of which showed any interest in him. He went into stalking full on wigglebum crouch and pounced on something in the long grass, missed, and walked off nonchalently. And he really doesn't like the new bike park.

Of course, he completely meant to miss.

After being a good boy around the neighbours' cats for so long, yesterday he put Momo in a headlock. ::-)

Pete climbed a tree, then tried to chase his tail while he was up there.

We went to the vet for Pete's annual check-up and boosters. He tried to have a sleep on the exam table.

Pete just did a huge poo in the shape of a CDC. I am so proud.

I bought some cheap ham the other day to give him bits as an occasional treat. He's now spending most of his awake time trying to break into the fridge. Apart from yesterday, when he spent quite a while chasing his tail. In the bath.

Don't be too overconfident, one of my colleagues cat saw fish being placed in their fridge, and did manage to open it, and then consume said fish !

In a previous house we used to have a visiting cat who was scared of ham.  Instant heckles-up and hissing reaction.  No, I don't understand, either.

Many years ago my black and white mog Alice worked out she could open the fridge by lying on her back and reaching both paws up past her head and under the edge of the door.*

Ham was consumed on that occasion.  My ham, what was going to be my supper when I got home from work.   >:(



*She could also open the internal house doors by pulling them towards her, and ate Go-Cat or similar crunchies direct from the box by posting her paw through the little dispenser hole and getting them out one by one.
