I'm writing an essay on urban myths for college and thought what better subject than the You-Tube friendly Catman of Greenock. I'd be interested in hearing any stories of sightings, rumours about his origins, anecdotes about the man etc. Is it true that he's got a weekend job as the Ton mascot? Anyway anything would be appreciated. rolleyes.gif

catman has been around for years, i remember being bout 4 years old walking through scotts lane and seeing him, kids used to chuck things at him and i know social services have tried to help him on numerous occasions but he seems quite happy being where he is! its probably all he has ever known.

What i have heard:
he was a russian/polish refugee and when he came of his boat here it left without him.
he has lived in scott's lane ever since.
a few gangs have battered him and one gang broke his legs and the other chopped his tounge out.
he eats anything he gets hold of apart from humans ofcourse laugh.gif
and he dosnt run on 4 legs he crawls on hands and knees. my sister has seen him when she was with a friend and he begged them for food. they had nothing on them but he ended up eating one of there cigarette doubts mellow.gif
he also lives under buses at wilsons coaches near the bp in greenock. and if you need a pic i have one but dont know how to put it on but once i find out al post it wink.gif

A reliable source tells me that he got taken in by the social services a while ago and got cleaned up and he's now in a home somewhere and is in a wheelchair. He apparently attends St Mary's church in the West end from time to time.

I was sitting in tesco's cafe today and I saw a guy in a wheelchair with one leg. I said to my mate how I thought he looked like Catman in that picture of him holding a "rat" in his mouth. You never know...

This picture in fact - http://profile.myspa...iendID=64528319

Apparently he has a myspace laugh.gif
