    Cat in my roof.... I showed him...

    A cat decided to start living in my loft a couple of weeks ago.... Didn't ask permission first and kept waking me and the good lady up every morning when it jumped on the roof and generally scuttled around up there...

    I suggested to SBF that wanted to kill the bastard either by poison, stoning or just ripping it's head off.... 'Mai dee' was the reply as cats in this country are generally held in high regard and to kill one would be on a par with doing a monk in.... (If a monk had started living in my loft uninvited I would probably have similar evil thoughts... )

    Anyway.... this morning I managed to coax the moggy down close enough that I could grab it by the scruff of the neck.. I proudly carried it into the house and asked SBF what I should do with it... She came up with the acceptable solution of bagging it up, driving it off far away and then releasing it in the jungle...

    The first attempt at bagging him wasn't too successful... Cat's can easliy scrap their way out of bin liners but I managed to tackle it to the ground and bag him up again in a zipped up holdall... SBF actually said 'kor tort krap' to the fucker as we bundled him into the bag...

    Chucks the bag into the back of the pick-up (because SBF didn't want to be distressed by the cats crying inside the pick-up) and took off East to the other side of Maprachan Lake where we found a suitable release point...

    The bastard had only managed to unzip the bag and do a runner from the truck during some point in the abduction hadn't it?...

    If it finds it way back to my loft I'm just going to rip it's head off... Sod the superstitions...

    That made me laugh a lot. I think it's the booze.

    I hate cats, my dogs kill therm really good, bit embarrasing though chucking dead cats into the communal trash bin across the road though.

    My mate's pitbull 'Terror' (of all the chav names u could give a dog) was a real cat killer too, used to bring them back to the house. I never kept dogs before, always thought cats were a bit too quick and smart to be caught by them.

    The cats kept coming into my house, really no idea why they done this, the dogs just killed them, out on the street the dogs wouldn't even bother looking at a cat.

    ^ Stepping into your house uninvited... That's what got me too...

    I had SBFs Mum and Dad do a similar thing the other day but I held back the urge to bag them up and chuck them in the back of the truck on that occasion...

    i do not like being cruel to animals, buttttt..............
    i fkkin HATE cats.
    animals kill and eat other animals: this is a fact of life, and i accept that as a nature -lover, however
    cats will catch other animals/birds, etc, and slowly torture them to death, not simply kill and eat them as in hungry, etc.
    besides that, the neighbours' cats will find an excuse, and an entry to your house, to piss and squirt in your place for no apparent reason...
    had a bunch of "poor little defenceless kittens" dumped on me once, kids liked them, and i put up, 'till they showed thai characteristics,
    then it was:
    here, kitty,kitty-
    into the sack, with your mates, gas-pipe attatched, and an humane two seconds later, material for three davey crockett hats,plus some catfish feed!

    ^^ Tell me about it... I've still not got over the huge difference in pricing for Farangs and Thais at that Waterworld aquarium thing... I tried to expalin that we are all human to the cashier but she was having none of it...

    450 baht for a farang and you can actually sprint around it in less than 15 seconds... ( I proved that to the bewildered in-laws )...

    ^ Kids are free too so he should go... We had 2 sprogs in the family outing and I don't think I paid for them... The in-laws didn't agree with my idea of letting the toddlers walk around the attraction on their own...



    Think I found out what happened to my Houdini cat...

    I have mixed feelings about cats. When I had rats behind the kitchen area, I got a cat (upon Jet's suggestion), and ended up with about 4 soon after. Usually, they wander the property, and have never seen a rat again since.

    BUT, one of the little bastard has taken a love to perching himself every night on my favorite new motorbike, leaving hair all over the seat, and I suppose pissing on it. So, I tried to figure out a way to keep him off. First, I put an old heavy car floormat on the seat. The next morning, he had ripped that off and hair all over the seat again. Then, I put an old motorcycle helmet on top of the mat...both of those were on the ground the next morning.

    Finally, I put a heavy ceramic pot on top of the mat, on top of the seat. Next morning, the ceramic pot was in pieces, the paint was scratched etc.. I am now looking for that bastard....

    Rawlins was it a female. I had that happen to me.
    Bloody thing would jump onto my bedroom aircon at all times during the night. Got rid of the cat but later discovered 5 kittens needing homes.

    Bloody moggies, dislike them with a vengeance. Neighbour's cat in Oz used to kill Rosella parrots and budgerigars and leave them on my back verandah, neighbour didn't care.

    I didn't know Thais revered them as stated ^. I do know the Maya and Aztecs did. Oh, and the ancient Egyptians too I believe. Should we be concerned about this?

    It was a female... I'm hoping there are not any spawn of the beast up there in the loft... haven't heard anything yet...

    Camel toe - I'm not quite sure how revered they are but SBF told me that I shouldn't even think bad things about them.... Something to do with them having 9 lives I think...

    Just put an old blanket over the seat so the cat can sleep on the bike without leaving hair on the seat.

    Made me wonder - do Luk kreung kids/adults generally pay Thai price or Farang price or halfway? How about other asian looking folks? Japs/Koreans can afford Farang price but not Burmese/Khmer/Vietnamese. Although I guess the poor ones aint going to tourist attractions anyway.

    ^^ Rats I expect.

    Stick a sheet of that adhesive paper up in the roof cavity with some cheese or bread with honey in the centre.

    They glue themselves to the sheet and then you just pick the whole lot up and dump it in the garbage bin rats and all.

    In theory...yes. But, I had the most tenacious rats you can imagine about 9 months ago. I bought the most industrial strength glue plates you can buy and loaded them up with hot dogs. In the morning, I found the damn glue plate completey eaten through, the glue plate stuck to electrical wires, pulling to the floor and ruining expensive halogen lamps, and the rat nowhere in sight.

    Heh Heh. I got him the next night tho. He got his chin stuck to the plate and I found him squeaking the next morning. One more to go, and then it was buy the meow face. Never seen one since.

    You right Chinthee and now from memory.

    What my missus done was take about a 1/2 square metre of plywood, put that really thick pasty ceramic tile glue and stuck the food in the centre. We caught a whole family in one night.

    Haven't confirmed a sighting yet but there's something scuttling around and making cat noises in the roof again...
