If You Fancy Some Pussy...

Under my crusty exterior, beneath my irrascibility and misanthropy, there beats a heart of the purest blancmange. For me this video is (just short of) a minute's worth of bliss, reminding me poignantly of my cat William, who departed this life a year ago this day, age 17 years. I know cats are no-good, wheedling manipulators, that they are horrible to mice, or in William's case to Greek cockroaches, and that they are total control freaks. Your dog will adore you if you provide him with food and affection. Your cat will take the food and affection as no more than his due. The dog will think you are God, and the cat conclude that he must be God. Despite this appalling presumption, I delight in every sound and movement of a contented feline. You can please yourselves.

It must be very confusing for Pope Benedict who represents God on Earth. He is known for his love of pussies.Surely a CAT can't be Infallible as well.

I'm sure cats regard humans as pretty thick. In most cases they are right.

I remember the first time I met William. After about 45 mins he deigned to let me stroke one finger across his head.
A very Regal cat he was......

And very much a one-man moggy, too. With me (and later with my mum) he was almost as affectionate and responsive as a dog. With anyone else he was aloof - most visitors only saw his vanishing ring-piece.
