Thanks but Puss is still up at the crack of dawn scratching on the door. (Actually we had a dog who did that many years ago.) What I don't understand is HOW he knows because it is still dark before the birds start cheeping. In other words, what prompts him (and the dog as well) to get up precisely at that time?

There is something else I never figured out about cats, how they come to the very window in the room where you happen to be. I read about some blind people who were able to develop this sense of feeling space (even for walking down streets) but not with walls in between.
I went to see my neighbour the other day. Whilst I was talking to her I looked at the window and outside was our cat looking at me in a very accusatory way which said 'what on earth are you doing in there?' This happened with previous cats as well. I think that this one recognises my car engine noise as even if I park the car right down the other end of the road he is invariably waiting for me.

Oh sure, dogs also know the sound of different car engines.
The new cat not only figured out how to slide the screen of the bathroom window to get in but to shove it aside while he works on the window if it is shut. Maybe he was a house breaker in a previous life...

Our cats just get in the family way. Feeding them all is becoming expensive, not to mention having to take some of them to the vet when they get ill...
