Top 10 Patience of a Saint Cats Waiting

Today’s Caturday post comes from a rather amazing story I read a while back about a cat that waited over a year for their owner to return from Australia! The owner had thought that the cat had run away because he tried to get it into a carry basket to take it round a friend’s house for them to look after it while they were away(which the cat REALLY didn’t like.) But the cat lived wild of a whole year living off the kindness of strangers and the odd animal it could catch. So please do join me as I attempt to discover just what is…
