How to use cat in a sentence?

  1. Andrew Schneider:

    They didn't need men because they had each other, a significant other. It doesn't matter if the cat's in pants or pedal-pushers. I don't think we're supposed to fly solo.

  2. William H Gass:

    We have scarcely gotten home ... when our children's sneezes greet us, skinned knees bleed after waiting all day to do so. There is the bellyache and the burned-out basement bulb, the stalled car and the incontinent cat. The windows frost, the toilets sweat, the body of our spouse is one cold shoulder and the darkness of our bedroom is soon full of the fallen shadows of our failures.

  3. White Settlement Mayor Ron White:

    We’ve had that cat five years, and there’s never been a question.

  4. Deputy Chief Inspector Nicole Broster:

    ( SWNS) The gruesome discovery took place on March 9 outside of an unidentified building in the Cricklewood neighborhood. When the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals( RSPCA) arrived to make the rescue, they had to call for backup. Deputy Chief Inspector Nicole Broster told the outlet that firefighters had to use car-crash rescue machinery to remove the section of the fence the cat was trapped on. The male ginger and white cat was found at 3:50 a.m. on March 9. ( SWNS) WHY YOUR PET ’S FOOD BOWL COULD BE MAKING YOU SICK When I got there I was incredibly shocked — in all my years with the RSPCA I have never seen anything like it. This poor cat literally had two metal posts protruding through his body.

  5. Tiffany Carol Fintel:

    When I arrived at the shelter to discover 15 cats, Jean said to load as many as we could fit, if there had been pigs or even a duck she would have told me to take them too lol. The cats are settling in and we have a few cat rescues stepping up to help with them.
