My catsitter (Emily from Candyfloss Cats) is just fantastic. Even Tiny loves her, as the card she left behind today testifies: "Tiny wasn't shy one bit and was purry and playful. Simba was friendly and calm and happy to let Tiny take centre stage. They are both lovely cats." Not shy? Playful? Purry? Centre stage? Can this really be my aloof, timorous boy? I read the card out to him. "You are a tart, Tiny. A big tart!" And the big tart joyfully accepted the head rubs and cuddles offered to him with a frankly shameless chirrup.
