    (1) –

    (2) Cat Stevens – I never figured his conversion, he was a Greek Cypriot, I think and that could not have gone down well with his relations

    (3) Its a term of endearment, like sweetheart, or darling

    (4) Cat hater

    (5) Always cats and from time to time a dog – current situation 3 cats and my late mothers dog which sleeps all day and resents bitterly being taken for a walk.

    Whoo hoo! I know those. The quote belongs to Albert Schweitzer– it’s in my collection. Cat Stevens is the singer. Thanks to the website I’ve heard of that phobia. And cats and dogs both rock. Didn’t know the foreign word, though, but it made me hungry.

    1. Albert Schweitser (spelling?)
    2. Cat Stevens
    3. Darling or (affectionately) pet
    4. I have no idea but given the theme I am going to guess fear of cats
    5. None. We travel too much to have a dog and cats require servants. Winston Churchill was right of course. Pigs are best.


  4. Rob Hosking says:

    1. Gareth Morgan.

    2. Cat Stevens.

    3. I’m guessing pet – ‘chouchou’ sounds like that, and so does ‘mascota’.

    4. someone who fears cats.

    5. Dogs – OUTSIDE.
