Meet Blue

Meet Blue an Urban tabby, full of character, respected in the neighbourhood and a fan of catnapping — just has to be a Sagittarius. He is owned by Clare.

The Sagittarius cat:

Does your cat always look on the bright side? Does his optimism border on the arrogantly misguided? Is he of such a roving nature that you've occasionally considered the possibility of an escape-proof back garden? Does he like horses? Then rest assured that you're sharing your living space with an outrageously rumbustious Sagittarius.

Your adventurous, ever-youthful pal is travel crazy. He even enjoys hitching a ride in a bicycle basket and, if you go for a keep-fit jog, he'll keep pace beside you in comradley style.

For a cat, he's remarkably straightforward and most of the time, you can read him like a book. If he ever goes missing for a spell or his behaviour goes off the rails, the cause is most probably a tangled love-life - nothing else upsets this boy. His self-esteem is almost undentable - and he doesn't even mind too much if you find his blunders and missed footings a bit of a joke. With his wide, curly mouth and rumbling purr, he seems to enjoy a laugh himself. He likes being near people and is forever rearing up on his hind legs - or leaping onto unsuspecting visitors' heads - trying to be nearer their level.

He is relentlessly matey - even to those who would rather he keep his hairy distance. But every now and then, he'll take himself off on a little holiday, returning with a mysterious smile. Just to show that he's a free agent at heart.

Actually, despite his wanderlust and taste for country living, he'd hate the paw-to-mouth existence of a farmcat or town feral because he lives for mealtimes and eats enormously. Full of trust and resilience (he never learns from a mistake, but no matter), he never quite graduates beyond his kittenish phase. 

You'll usually find him waiting for you to come home, sitting on the front doormat.
