I was pleased and relieved by it, have stepped down from my position of High Dudgeon, and hope that we can consider the matter calmly closed now? Excellent!
Back to the world of the mundane (and tiresome): I have to replace my cat flap today, and the replacement is oh-so-slightly bigger than the old one. Anyone who has fiddled about amateurishly with a jigsaw and a hole in the back door (not to mention doing this in the current cold, wet and windy weather) will know how inconvenient this discovery was.
And why? Cat flaps and their flimsy hinges don't seem to be designed as lookout apertures for this giant self-designated 'cat' with a rock-hard head.
The cats, of course, are looking smug and slightly triumphant.
