    I arrived home today to a "sorry you were out" card from Royal Mail and to a Tinycat that had been well and truly knocked off his stride. I can only imagine that the postman banged loudly on the front door of Tiny's domain with a considerable want of delicacy, diplomacy and tact, as when I got home he was once again uncharacteristically silent and sad. Very, very sad, with enormous, plaintive, dark eyes and no wind in his sails at all. He ate a small amount of food and allowed me to cuddle him and kiss his ears with no complaint, while I questioned him. Did the horrible postman frighten him? Had Simba upset him? Did his stomach hurt? Whatever had happened, Tiny wasn't saying, although I did manage to get a tiny peep out of him as I stroked his back.

    He's back to normal now and is noisily and enthusiastically unleashing his pent-up rage on my feet, which are securely wrapped in the duvet, but it does make me think what a sensitive chap he is, not to mention how vocal he usually is. The other day, I called his name from the other side of the room, and he replied, without getting up and coming over, just a quick chirrup of "here I am!" And if you even walk past him, more often than not he'll sit up, blink amiably and remark, "Miah!" Such funny, complicated creatures...

    Such a sensitive soul! Reminds me of Ruxpin tbh but he's only just finding his voice and his chirrup is nearly silent! You can tell when he's been spooked though... He doesn't like strangers at his door! :rolleyes:
    Glad Tiny is settled again though and it just shows how you just know when they are not quite right ;)

    Thank you :) When a large, heavy cat like him pounces unexpectedly on your feet, you really do get a unique insight into how an unfortunate mouse might feel, trapped beneath his huge, remorseless paws.

    Aah bless poor Tiny! Glad he is back to his usual self. Ours absolutely hate the front door being opened - Tara especially will hide behind the bed for ages. Its got to the stage where our regular visitors know to come round the back!

    One of my 10 mth old kittens growls quite loudly whenever she hears any footsteps on the gravel approaching my front door! :eek: The little poppet
    actually runs towards the door as though intending to "see off the intruder"! :lol:

    I have never come across this behaviour before in a cat:confused: Has anyone else? :) It is extremely cute to see :001_wub:)

    Bobby growls if he hears people outside the window with raised voices, but if he hears a cat fight he just wants to see what's going on.
