    Neighbours cat wants to live with me 12th Sep 18 at 2:23 AM
    After losing my lovely cat last year. A cat 4 doors down a female called Khloe is always coming in to mine. She jumps through my kitchen or any ground floor one if open.
    She is adorable sleek jet black with big amber eyes and only 8 months old.
    Khloe never seems to want to go home much and she sits on her owners windowsill when their out.
    They put a collar on her too tight I took it off with scissors.

    I can't what point you're trying to make with this thread, unless it's to invite comments about leaving other people's pets alone?

    Can't you sleep?

    Not sure what this thread is for, but public service announcement for anyone new to cat ownership:

    Collars are meant to be tight. When fitted correctly, you should only be able to just fit two fingers underneath it. Given how thick most cats' fur is, it'll look really tight. That's correct though.

    Collar injuries are almost always caused by collars being too loose - when cats can get their lower jaws or legs stuck in them.

    If you want another cat, go and get one of your own.

    Please DON'T feed this cat. It's okay a neighbouring cat visiting whilst it's owners are out, but if you feed it, you're trying to entice it to stay with you. It's not your cat!

    (Talking about healthy cats with homes, not obvious strays).


    If you could live one day of your life over again, which day would you choose?

    it sounds like you're stealing their cat. I would be peeved if someone else meddled with my cats collar
    I suspect you are still grieving for your old cat - maybe get yourself a new cat?

    Lindens is right, he had another bait post where he said he hated his son in law and should have a say in his daughters partner (gross)

    he then complained his daughter didnt give him any money after he stopped working at 41, and didnt give his son any money either but 'why should his son get a job if he doesnt want to'

    troll through and through.

    I don't think my neighbours HD TV with surround sound is happy with them and would much rather live with me. I see it looking at me through the window when the curtains are open.

    In all seriousness (probably not befitting the thread), people used to keep "borrowing" one of my cats. He was perfectly happy with us, he was just a tart and kept leading them on. He'd sit on the wall outside when the mums and kids were coming back from school so he could flirt with them too. Absolutely beautiful little soul.

    Are you prepared to pay any vet bills for her?

    One of my old cats had a second home, just up the road.
    As we went off to work, he'd be sat on their wall waiting to be let in.
    Elderly couple, the chap used to buy fish off-cuts for the cat (with my permission).
    A win-win situation for all parties.
    The old couple had a cat for companionship during the day with no vet bills to worry about.
    My cat had company during the day - he was very sociable.
    We knew the cat was happy.

    When he died, I popped round to tell them and we all had a cry.

    Of course, nothing like the scenario the OP outlines.
    If anyone had really tried to take any of my cats away, they would have been in serious trouble.
    I suspect the OP is a troll.

    One of the neighbours a few doors down from a flat I lived in 16-17 years ago had a cat like that. He'd often sit on the wall along the front of the properties and trot over for for some fuss when me or one of the other neighbours came home. One day he did this I gave him his usual ear scratch, turned round to open my door, as soon as I opened the door he walked straight in as if he owned the place and started exploring.
