Bemused kitties today – despite the nice warm weather, the downstairs doors they are used to having open most days have been summarily closed by the decorator.
Good reason for that – namely that he’s power-washing the walls all round the house, and the cats would not like it a bit if they stepped outside to be met by a fierce jet of water.

They have no interest in the appearance of the outside of their house, as long as contains a well-trained human with bottomless supplies of high-class cat food and lots of soft cushions.
I sometimes think the word I most commonly address to my feline family members is. ‘Sorry!’
