Spacejacket - thanks for making me giggle, it reminded me of when I woke from a bad dream about an ear infection… I got out of bed and prodded the dead frog with my barefoot! Have you ever heard the horrible screaming noise a frog makes when being attacked by a cat? I think it probably explained my dream!!!
I remember another time when my step-dad had to go and get the shovel to remove the dead rat from the doorstep, afterwards he came in grumbling that the cat was a fraud as rigimortis had already set in apparently
When my sister got a cat it would proudly bring home kebab wrappers, the most impressive thing was that he managed to negoiate almost whole poppadoms thru a cat-flap snigger
[/quote] Sonia, That was the awful thing - rigormortis had set in- the rat was a ‘stiff’. So that meant the cat had brought it in some time ago. She brings something in every night - climbs up onto the lean-to and squeezes in through the bathroom window - and is so proud of her ‘offerings’. Now, l keep looking to see what is under the bedstead. Thankfully she never catches birds.
