Have just dropped my lazy daughter at the tube station. In order to leave the kitchen without Scout bolting out of the kitchen door, I asked her to get down and stay on a particular cushion on the floor, which she did. But when I came back, about four minutes later, she was still there! She can't possibly have stayed there all that time, can she, waiting for me to release her? (She's in a different position, curled up, rather than in a down position.) I imagine she got up when I shut the front door, wandered about, and then just happened to fancy that particular cushion again. Whatever happened, it was a massive (and pleasant) surprise - she looked very sweet.
