Some cats are mean but sometimes it's not their fault. Smudge, who lives next door, arrived as a stray. He used to beat me and Josie up if he ever got the chance but when they adopted him next door they took him for his op and now he's a sweetie pie, all happy and domesticated and we exchange no more than the occasional look.
And the new stray is next in line for the op. He is so horrible but they reckon if he has his op he'll turn nice too. At the moment our neighbours are trying to take his photo. The Cats Protection League won't operate on him until they are sure he is indeed homeless so they are going to put posters up and see if anyone claims him. Trouble is it turns out he is camera shy if nothing else shy!!
So mum says next door are good cat loving people so we must not be mean about Paul even if he did forget to feed us. Mum said he might not be willing to feed us again if we aren't nice cats.
"Then you couldn't go away," I said hopefully. I would like mum not to go away.
"No," said my mum. "I would go away but I would leave you food in one of those timer dishes so you would have no company and no-one checking you are all OK."
If mum must go away we would like people to talk to us and just in case we needed any help at all.
So we are practising being nice. Actually mum says Josie is already a good cat, it's me that needs the work. I'm going to go out on this sunny morning and think about that one.

You gotta be nice sometimes - it will confuse the humans!
Yo9u have to be nice some of the time. People like nice cats and I thought you were a nice boy mate.
You look like a nice cat, Toby.
Yes, them stray boy cats. Their personality changes after the operation. Before that they like to argue about girls and territory and such. Hope someperson can snap a picture of him. Maybe you could offer him your tuna and biscuits in tuna water. And when he eats: Smile! Snap!
