In case you didn't see this in my comments, I bring to you this piece of information provided by Maryam of My Marrakesh:
" I had to swing by to tell you of the most unusual imposter who has come to live with us in Marrakesh, brought by my mother. It looks exactly like a sleeping cat and it's chest rises and falls and it purrs gently....but in fact it is battery operated. Frankly, I think you should be worried -- this is the just the sort of thing that could fool humans....and it doesn't even need to be fed! Pls gather your friends round and put into place an emergency response system."
This is disturbing on so many levels. First of all, I hope that Meow Meow (Maryam lives with Meow Meow) hasn't seen this ghastly thing. Do NOT let her near it as I'm sure it would upset her greatly.
Maryam is right... this is exactly the kind of thing that would fool those silly little humans. I had very bad dreams last night about this and I woke the woman up at 5 AM to tell her about them (oh... and to ask for breakfast) but she put me out of the bed!! But I didn't let that put me off and I got back into the bed at 5:30 and treddled on her pillow good and hard. And I purred good and loud. THEN she got out of bed and stomped off and so I let out a big "RAUOW" until she came back for me and carried me downstairs.
After breakfast I gave myself a bath:
I'll bet those fake cats can't do this!
