This is a question Pet Stories

When one of my cats was younger and a lot fatter, he came bowling in from the garden with an almighty crash. Looking slightly stunned, he'd arrived into the kitchen having ripped the cat flap from the door and was still wearing it as a cat-tutu. Did I mention he was quite fat?

In honour of Jake, a well loved cat, who died on Wednesday, tell us your pet stories and cheer us up.

Chinese goosberry or Kiwi fruit plants as they are better known are interesting for 2 reasons

1 You need both a male and a female plant to produce the fruit and ...

2 The sap fron the plant acts as a narcotic to cats.

A few years back we had a big old cat called sooty and our neighbour had a couple of kiwi fruit vines in her back yard. All the neighbourhood cats knew about them. The vines were widley "utilised" over time , the cats had rubbed a depression in the ground under one of the lowest hanging vines.
A cat would lie on its back , put a paw in the air with its claws extended and take a swipe. The resulting slash would result in a cut to the vine releasing the sap. The cat on its back would wriggle around to let the sap drip into its mouth . Once it had its fill it would wobble off and let the next cat waiting have its turn.

Our neighbours garden was essentially an opium den for felines. Old sooty was no stranger to over the fence . I can destinctly remember watching him walk over the roof of my dads car in anything but a straight line , one paw flopping in front of the other (immaging drinking 10 pints of stella and you get the idea). How he managed to jump up on to the car in the first place is beyond me as a minuite later he stumbelled into the garden wall completley oblivious to it.
Oddly enough we didnt see much of him for the rest of the day .

If i hadnt seen this with my own eyes i would not have of believed it . Our old neighbour used to talk about finding comatosed cats spread all around her back yard.

How the cats knew that Kiwi fruit vines are narcotic beats me.

P.S. doesnt work for humans
