Messiah Complex

I wanted to tell you about my cat - the one with the Messiah Complex. His name is Fiver (read Watership Down if you don't get this) and he is an Abyssinian cross with a startling resemblence to James Dean.

One night we arrived home late and as we turned into the driveway, the headlights swept across the front of the house illuminating the lounge room. Fiver was standing up on his back legs on the inside window ledge with his front legs extended to either side with his claws hooked into the screen. Honestly, all he needed was a crown of thorns.

Do you have any other cats? I imagine them sitting around beforehand and Fiver goes, "Oi, watch this mates. This really freaks the humans!"

In case you didn't know it your cat speaks like a townie from London.

Yeah - I've got three cats. The boys - Hazel and Fiver - are brothers from the same litter. And we also have Luna who is the most lovely cat ever. She is like the angel at the top of the Christmas tree while those boys are nothing but monkeys in cat suits.

Their nicknames are The Princess (Luna), The Plumber (Fiver - because he used to have a total fixation with running water - especially the toilet) and The Pirate (Hazel - think "Drop Dead Fred" - except we have the Pirate who touches everything).

And you're right. They gang up on us.
