    One of my Facebook friends has posted to say that her four-week old baby has just said "I love you" to her, and there is an argument developing between one woman who says it's physically impossible and another who says it's perfectly possible, her little boy was reciting the complete works of Shakespeare at six weeks, etc etc...

    And what I really want to say is, "Well, my cat can whistle the Marsellaise while walking backwards on his front paws" but that will cause yet more trouble and I don't think my fb friend appreciates sarky humour... But I'm so tempted! Not to mention the pleasant mental image of Tiny doing just that...

    Potter talks too. He can say "feck" - that's what watching "Father Ted" does to your cat...

    Mika does a delightful rendition of Edith Piaf’s Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien in the most perfect french accent, Which considering he has never left the country is quite some achievement I think!

    Rosso on the other hand has no particular talents to speak of despite my attempted hothousing he simply sits on the flashcards and yells TREATS! :001_tongue:

    I swear that Freddie says mum when he is meowing well sounds like it anyway when I leave a room and go into another room and he can't find me I swear he saus mum mum mum and then I say I'm here Freddie and he runs to me! Think I may sound dilusional!

    I forgot that also Mika does a rather funky version of the Cuban classic Guantanamera!

    That's a brilliant expression, I want to start using it! So much of my working day is made up toiling laboriously for the cat's violin...

    Hahaha! Simba saw Chas and Dave on tv once and he stared at them with a kind of appalled fascination but he hasn't started saying "Gertcha!" Yet...give it time...:D

    I'm also trying not to get in trouble on FB today. ;) A friend's cat has developed urinary problems while on an all-dry diet (surprise) and I advised her to drop the dry food for right now at least..and of course someone else has to come in and insist that it's all good, their cats are on dry and they're "just fine" etc. Siiiigh. :ciappa:

    Ah, the multitalented Mika! What depths of accomplishment lurk behind that impassive emerald gaze! Better not call him The Little Sparrow though...he might like to eat a little sparrow!

    and the correct response is to say `That`s nice, dear`, and then have a quiet word with her OH about post-natal checks.
