Some people mistakenly believe that cats are better as solitary animals. This is rarely true, although there are plenty of humans that prefer their own company too. Cats like to live in a community and regularly seek out other cats that may share or violate their territory. There are plenty of occasions when the cats in the book ‘A Fine Witch For A Cat‘ eye each other up to determine if they are friend or foe.

We don’t always have the power to make things happen just the way we want them to. So when it’s not quite right, don’t lose heart. Some things are simply beyond our control. Just roll with it! And if you are actually trying to herd some cats, sit back and enjoy the furry chaos that will ensue.
