I am the proud owner of a GORGEOUS British Shorthair. Her name is Iphigenia, and this feisty little cat likes to lacerate my hands. I'm a total cat person. I've had dogs in the past, but nothing beats having a cat on your lap as you read. I'm also very, very far from athletic, so I love that my cat equally hates a good workout.
The person who lives on the first floor (I live on the 2nd) raises chicken on a fenced patch of yard. I had noticed that my cat was often mesmerized by the sight of hens picking at their feed, but I was lost for words when the person living on the first floor came up to me with a bleeding hen. That finally explained why my kitty returned home with what looked like a layer of clumsily-applied lipstick. At the time, I just thought the puny thing had fed on some raw meat I'd left out to defrost. Well, in the end, I had to pay for the chicken's hospital fee. Apparently, the owner raises them as pets, not food (which is very abnormal in China). I gave my little kitty a scolding, but I have the bad feeling that she will get at it again
So who else at GS has a cat story to share?
