I find it surprising that a well intentioned 'english fella' like you, while posting on englishforum, stubbornly refuses to even use spell check.
I never use spell check. Those things, no matter which one, stubbornly point out things that are correct but not registered in the spell chequer system. On thew other hand they do not catch any homophones, which are very frequent in English, like the "chequer" above. They waste a lot of time for intercepting very few typos, in my case anyway.

Re: cat that is not my cat

Somewhere else on the internet this was recently discussed.
Most likely it is someone else's cat and hopefully it is chipped.
If not you may put a collar on the cat where you can embedded a message for its true owner.

You could also put a GPS or even Camera on the cat as they did in the BBC documentary "The Secret Life of the Cat" http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-22567526

SWR/ARD did a similar thing:

and also these Australian research group:

It's just off-putting, for me at least, and I couldn't be bothered to read the entire post, so you might have missed out on some helpful advice or knowledge.
It's like looking at a poorly-constructed wall or something.

... we can re house the cat, or keep it, no prizes for guessing what i will do, and also will get it chipped, many thanks for all information posted
Good for you!

It's amazing how much a velvet paw can manipulate us and work their way into our hearts.

The first cat came into our lives that way, only lived across the road, but it was a large house set back off the road, with a long gated (and locked) driveway. Even though I was a definite dog person, she lived with us from April to November. We didn't begin feeding her until the owners had failed to reply to our first letter advising where she was. It took until September for the owners to reply to our letters.

Turned out that they had 8 cats in the house, our visitor had fallen out with her litter sister, and the owner was seriously ill. Every time she went into hospital for chemo or surgery, the cat disappeared for weeks at a time. The owner asked if we would care for the cat until her treatment was over, then took her back home the week before we moved to Switzerland. Broke my heart, but who can resist a face like this...

yes my gramma is awful, but i dont care,so if you have nothing better to do carry on ,i think it says more about you, than it does about my grammer
But please also think of the role-model you make to your (adoptive) children.

It needs to be readily understood by people similar to you who want to help, but who also have very little time to spend hours writing an essay on their understanding of the question, or to check their grammar when replying.

A couple of sentence breaks is not too much to ask for
