Cat No Exit

Cat No Exit

It’s not all work, work, work here at id-iom HQ. With Bonfire Night fast approaching I took our little Manx cat aside and tried to have a quiet word with her about how dangerous and scary fireworks can be for small cats that have never experienced it before and how I thought it best that she perhaps stay inside for tonight and Saturday. Before I had even finished speaking she glanced at me contemptuously and darted out through the cat flap. When she finally came back in I thought that perhaps writing the rules down would work but she merely gave me a knowing look and started to play with the sheet of paper. Finally i decided enough was enough and I would create a Cat No Exit sign that blocked the cat flap as I fear that if i merely locked it she would get mightily confused. Here she is trying to devise a way past it all the same…

I told you our squirrels were trouble…

I told you our squirrels were trouble...

I’ve mentioned the squirrels around here before. They’ve even been in the newspapers – and here’s a little coverage from The Guardian to prove it! Anyway, believe me when I say they are bad. Real trouble. So there I was walking through the park when I get the feeling I’m being watched. I cast a furtive eye over the benches near me when I see him sat there, just staring at me and emitting a low guttural noise that doesn’t sound very friendly at all. A second glance reveals the empty cans and cigarette (or joint – who knows?) As I quicken my step I chance once last glance behind me and he seems to be chuckling to himself with an evil glint in his eyes. Making my way home apace I could have sworn I could hear rustling sounds behind me but couldn’t see anything. I just concentrated on finding my keys…

At least he hadn’t been on the crack. They are always worse. I’m not sure if I’ll be walking that way again…
