Everyone who lives with a feline friend will be familiar with the situation. You're sat watching telly or cooking the dinner, the cat's fast asleep and you're both calmly going about your business. When all of a sudden, all hell breaks loose.
The cat jumps out of bed, eyes like saucers, bum wiggling a way in the air and then they're off. Round the house, up the curtains, round your legs, they fly off like a rocket, powered on Whiskas.
