Give us a kiss, you just bowl me over! Cat makes friends with goldfish that could be supper


Love, Actually: Four-year-old tabby Kaiser reaches into the bowl to kiss goldfish Fishy

The average cat seldom looks upon a fish as anything more than a potential supper.

But four-year-old Kaiser has developed a rather closer – and more lasting – relationship to Fishy the goldfish. He regularly leans into the goldfish bowl to help himself to a kiss and a drink of water.

Owner James Armstrong, 45, a landscape gardener from Newcastle who bought Kaiser from a cat shelter, said: ‘We often joke that he likes fish-flavoured water. It happens with such regularity I think the fish enjoys the company.’

Meanwhile, a cat that went missing for 11 years was miraculously reunited with her teenage owner on Christmas Eve - making the furry feline a surprise Christmas present for her overjoyed family.

Chloe Hill was just six years old when she was given tiny kitten Salem as a present from her mum, Karen.

But she was heartbroken when the little cat disappeared just weeks later after slipping through an open door.

The family spent weeks searching the neighbourhood for their kitten, but never spotted their beloved pet.

They eventually feared the much-loved moggie was gone forever and got on with their lives.

Yet on Christmas Eve the RSPCA called the family from Halesowen, West Midlands to say Salem had been handed in and an emotional reunion followed.

Overjoyed Chloe, now 17, said: 'I just couldn't believe it when I saw Salem again. I never thought she'd come back after all these years.'

'I couldn't believe it when we got the call to say she had been found. I thought it was a joke at first, as we'd forgotten all about her.

'We rushed over to the pet store on Christmas Eve and spent GBP100 on litter trays and food.'
