You may think this is cheating, posting videos from YouTube and calling it a post, but Sophie Scott and another friend have been kind enough to share these with me, and I have enjoyed them so much.
Here’s the first, showing some wild relatives of that other box lover, Maru.
Actually maybe you don’t know Maru. I think it was Sophie Scott who introduced me too.
Without question, this is my favourite Maru video. He may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he is a sweet boy.
I borrowed a book from the library called Catification. It’s by the unlikely named Jackson Galaxy, and the far more believable Kate Benjamin. There’s a load of stuff in it that I think is nonsense, particularly the stuff about how you should not let your cats out because it’s too dangerous. OK, if your home backs onto the M1, letting Tiddles explore the great big world might not be the best plan, but it’s such a blanket and naff statement. You might as well say all children should be kept inside because it’s safer. But I digress. Fortunately, it does have some pretty cool stuff in it too, and I am going to show it to Octavia at the weekend. It looks like one of those books that might well be remaindered after the initial flurry does down, in which case some of my cat owner friends may well find it under the Christmas tree. The book reminded me of another video sent to me by Ms Scott.
They must like dusting. Or maybe they employ a cleaner.
Then the last one takes us back to the wild. You may want to get your hankies ready. My colleague V sent it to me. I saw a programme about this lion a while ago, but had forgotten it. There may be a subliminal message about not shopping in Harrod’s. You can decide for yourselves.
Now to do the washing up and see about getting the Ninja inside for the night.
