Welcome, all newcomers to our website! Have you ever wondered what your inscrutable cats are thinking, as they stare enigmatically into the distance? You might find an answer to this mystery in the weekly conversations we feature between a delightful though often foolish cat, Rinpoche, and her exasperated owner, Daddi.
Whether you love cats or not, you will enjoy these entertaining tales about the exploits of Rinpoche. So join us on a glorious romp as we venture into the secret world of Gloucestershire's cats!

“Rinpoche, why are you hissing so fiercely at Cuddles, the cat next door?”
“Daddi, he’s a sexual predator!”
“Cuddles? He seems like such a gentle and harmless old cat. What’s he done to you, Rinpoche?”
“I was walking in the garden yesterday, and I looked up to see him giving me the eye. It was a really creepy leer, Daddi! I’m sure I saw him wink too.”
“Rinpoche, I think I understand how this misunderstanding came about. Poor old Cuddles is almost blind in one eye. His owner, Mrs Barrows, told me recently that she took him to the vet to have an operation on the eye. He still can’t focus properly, so that’s why he seemed to be ‘giving you the eye’.”
“I don’t trust him, Daddi. He’s a tomcat and they’re all the same. We female cats have had enough! That’s why we’ve started #MeAlso.”
“Yes, it’s a movement that enables us to share the bad experiences we’ve had with tomcats. Exposing their behaviour and shaming them allows us to take back control of our bodies. Sister cats must stand together, Daddi! Sexual harassment has to end! Time’s up for toms!”
