This is one of my favourite non-discworld books and one that never gets returned after I've lent it out! Anyway, here are a selection of Real Cats for you to enjoy. (Any cats 'following the script' from the book is purely coincidental - I think)

We have a truly Unadulterated Cat on our farm. Her name is Tigerlily, after the indian princess in Peter Pan. She is the Undisputed Queen of the farm and paintball field. She has survived fights where almost 1/4 of her fur has been ripped off by vicious racoons. If you think racoons are cute, then you have Not met a Real Country Racoon. She IS the Female version of Greebo. She used to have 4 to 5 successful litters of 4 to 6 kittens each year, who would ALL survive, which is not normal with barn cats.

We got her fixed after we wound up with 27 cats outside. It was unreal. We take good care of them, they have a heated "cathouse" all winter, a Heated water dish, and plenty of food. 27 was tooooo many.

Now she moves from the house ... her Winter home ... to the paintball field as soon as spring is in the air. She is a Huntress bar none. If and when she walks to the tall grass, you can bet that within two or three minutes later, there will be something in her jaws on the way back. If there were a bear... She would take it on. She is as Wicked as a badger, and she LOVES baby animals. She was limping once, and the paintballers felt sorry for her, I told them not to be, it was a sign that a Momma bird found her at the nest!!! It helps to keep the mice down in the winter and rabbits under control in the summer lol. Greebette should be her name.

Terry says it perfectly in Wintersmith, "Kittens look at everything with wide-eyed amazement". I love the little white kitten Meep, the way she figured out how to make the cornucopia pop out chickens was hilarious!!! Kittens are absolutely adorable, and we always have a crop of them each year, so I know how much fun they can be.

It is neat when the non-feral ones have them near the porch where I can befriend them early. Sometimes the mommas bring them over to me when I am outside to introduce them to me. This is when they are ready to mate again usually lol... I suppose that makes me the surrogate mom, until they grow up. :lol:

I liked the book but my cat Claude threw up a hairball on it. Tough critic!
