On returning to my flat last night I found my neighbour Gna trying to persuade her black cat, Marmite, to come into her flat from the lobby. On my arrival Marmite hid behind me and proceeded to attempt to climb up me, so I picked him up for some time and he behaved as if he was my cat for a little while, until he decided that Poppy couldn't be allowed to reign over Gna's flat and agitated to climb down. He did shepherd me up to my flat, as if to make sure that I was there; Gna tells me that he sometimes goes up to my landing and wails, though this only seems to happen when I am out.

Another black cat has its eccentricities too:

All black cats have their eccentricities.

I don't know very many of them! I first saw Marmite about eight years ago, when he was stalking a pheasant. Marmite was on top of a fence, and the pheasant was on the ground. Marmite lost his footing for a moment, and the pheasant ducked under a gap in the fence and crossed to the other side, and took several seconds watching a puzzled Marmite, still fixated on the first side of the fence, who could not work out where the pheasant had gone...
