I can show you a much beloved clawed sofa and loveseat that two wonderful kitties played hide and go seek in. I will never part with them.

I’m glad this story had a happy ending. Thank you for the ping.

"they were delighted with the purchase except for the fact it had a cat inside"

A little spare change, a comb, a cat...what did they expect from a used sofa?

Cats. If they’re not a big part of our lives, they strive to be.

They make themselves famous with their antics and accidents.

This little fellow managed to make the national news in the UK and here we have picked up and published the story on FR.

Hold onto that cat. He looks like he's ready to make a call to Goodwill to donate an old lumpy mattress, if they will do the pick up at 3 AM.

I tried to find the vid clip about the cat that got its tail stuck between the pickets on a fence and couldn’t find it on YouTube.

Two firemen had to rescue it as the owner needed four hands...two to keep the cat from scratching and biting and two to extract the tail.

The cat took off like a bat out of Hades when it realized the tail was free!
