Yeah ours will sit in anything. Have to keep the pink antistatic bags away from her else she steals them and eats them!

I've got a fair few bags from you looking like that over the past few years!

Lola's trademark/signature methinks!

On a sidenote, why do cats & dogs regard plastic as a new food group...?

I think I read they might be covered in starch. Our old cat Louie used to have a routine of licking bathroom bin bag every morning. But he never used actually eat them. Lola does :roll: It was even out of sight. It's like she's a sniffer cat for plastic bags :roll:

But she also eats crisp packets. Slightly more understandable but cannot leave those anywhere either.

She also seems to be addicted to paracetamol. She was asleep on the cattree last night and I picked up the paracetamol packet extremely quietly and the head spun around like a poltergeist and she come down from the tree looking for them.

She also has a routine in the morning of going around the lounge carpet all the hairs she has moulting during the day.

Dogs eat crazy things too. I just gave the dogs a bowl of milk- a treat they've enjoyed all their lives without ill effect. Yet just now, one of them threw up on their rug, then they both enjoyed recycling the delectable vomit. Their carpet's now cleaner than before!

With paracetamol, beware of the danger of liver toxicity.

I didn’t think I was a cat person but had to cave in and get one for catching and keeping mice away (i live in a forest)
They are amazing little creatures and I’m so glad we got the cat :)
I think she thinks she’s a dog though.. if she’s home and around when I go walk with the dogs she always comes along for the entire walk.

Our cat likes to play fetch, and yet we totally failed to teach two dogs to play fetch :lol: :roll:

After doing half a million cleaning cycles, I started to get creative...

All we need is more pressure! So took the little air filter out and shoved in a syringe.

I forgot to take a picture but there was a little cleaning sponge which had disintegrated which I replaced with some black antistatic foam and glued it down.
