RE: How silly are you about your pets?

We are forever chasing them round to house to retrieve mice and frogs that they've brought in and not so long ago, we were decorating and one of them managed to get into the room, run thought the roller tray and leave painty cat prints all over the carpets and window ledges as we chased her.
Despite all this though, we love them to bits.
We have one cat - or to put it better - there is a cat who comes into our house every day who demands food and somewhere soft to sleep and totally ignores us the rest of the time because he is an antisocial ******* . If we walk into the room he will lift his head and stare at us, then very casually rise up onto all four legs and just stroll out of the room. It is just the way he does it that really gets up my nose, so regal and if he could talk I am sure he would say something like "I did not give you permission to be in my presence". I am the only person in the house that he actually has any time for - when he wants feeding he is all over me but as soon as the food is in his bowl then I might as well be invisible.We have tried making friends with him by buying him cat toys and trying to tempt him to play with them, but he just stares at them as if to say " whaddya think i am, a performing monkey?" and never bothers with them. Any ideas we might have had of cosying up on the sofa with the cat on our laps just were a total waste of time, because he just doesn't want to socialise with us.
