    If I remember right in some cases black cats are considered lucky and white cats not, it works the other way around too.

    We had a lovely black cat years ago called Fudge.

    He aged and grew sick,my lovely Fudge... :cat:
    We decided to have him put to sleep.   But he decided to come home again...
    He had a lovely collar on which we had attached a bell...Everywhere he went the birds could hear him.   The night he was put to sleep,we heard a little tinkle of his collar....and I said to hubby......'Fudge is back again' :happy:

    All cats are predators, from the lion to your common house cat.

    I don't think we can control a cat like a dog.  A dog can be trained to a certain level to respond to an order.  A cat will huff up and walk away... :rfth:
