Cats are intelligent but there are times when you begin to woner. For example. Some years ago I heard something clanking against the window. It turned out to be Candy, my oldest cat. She was carrying a 2ft long piece of bamboo in her mouth, sideways. A few years later, Neo, Candy's daughter started to bring in dead leaves and empty crisp packets. What did they want them for? Yesterday my OH was mopping the kitchen floor. Del Boy, my youngest cat was trying to catch the mop. Everything was fine until he made one final leap at the mop.He put on the breaks while on the wet floor and slid about 6ft before bouncing off a cupboard. He was unhurt except for his pride.
