Deeps lol I'd love to see your cat!
Lil, he's the loveliest, friendliest cat, he even plays with the cat across the road (although he has a long standing feud with the one down the road). He's a rescue and has food and abandonment issues. If he see's you walk down the road he wants to follow and he's very vocal, he's also very demanding with food. If Her Maj doesn't get herself down the stairs to feed him, he'll bite her heels or take a swipe at them, he's learned not to try that stuff with his dad as he gets clattered. I've watched him go over our back fence several times a day and come back with mice. He's had a couple of rats that we've known about too, I had to break the back of one of them. He's dragged a magpie into the house..... Basically, he's a pain with it and I think he's encouraged the dugs who are also into the mice despite being retrievers.
He's not our most prolific cat, we had half of a double act of farm cats, inherited him off my brother and he was the 'second fiddle' to his brother. They were assassins, did the whole Serangeti thing and between them gubbed a few hares, pheasants and that. Had to drag them in through a top window when my brother and his ex was away. Because the cats looked after themselves, they could go away on holiday and leave the window open for the moggies. The boy we inherited (couldn't of had the Alpha because of the princess we had) was the top cat around here until he died, there weren't as many houses and he ruled the place. We still haven't figured how to introduce another cat into the mix, Her Maj has always had a couple but we've been down to one for a few years, the current cat is probably a bigger issue than the dugs, it all stacks up though.
If you fancy a visit, you're more than welcome.
