I have grown up a cat lover. Ever since I can remember cats have been a part of my life. I like dogs too but I have always thought cats were cool, aloof, thoughtful and clever. Some time back, a cat found me and my family in Mittagong in the southern highlands of N.S.W. Australia where we used to live. His name was Oscar and he was all of the above plus very generous with his friendship. He liked everyone. He passed away not too long ago but his memory has stayed with the family. He was a real country cat and would eat anything and would go to any lengths to get food. He once stole a whole chicken from the stove while it was still cooking. I also recall he would eat apples and cut up carrot if you offered it to him.
