Cats Chasing Shadows

I have it from a thoroughly unreliable source that the song “Me and My Shadow” was originally written for a cat named Xerxes.

Cats will chase shadows–yours or their own, it makes no difference to them. Problems only crop up when they catch one.

My cats have not the slightest interest in shadows. But oh, do they love bugs!

    Most of my cats have always loved to chase anything that moves. Only one, an older male, would not chase anything, he only wanted to sleep,
    sharpen his claws and eat and grow fat. He was a sweet cat, but rather
    boring, (also destructive with his claws), but I loved him anyway

    Anything that moves. 🙂
