    I had forgotten all about Old Dame Trot and her cat. Thank you so much. How is Schrodinger? Happy August.

    Charming – reminded me of early reading, writing and English books from infant school days in the mid to late fifties.

    I enjoyed this. When I was small, I dressed up my cats in my doll’s clothes. They usually sulked and sat very still.

    At first l pondered on her cat being called PUFF, or PUFS then realised when milking the AFS, she was PUSS. ?

    l love having naughty pets when they wait for you to laugh, but these two take the bifcuit.

    I love that you describe yourself as living with a large feline personality. I completely relate, as I have 5 cats and they each have very different and “large” personalities. I love them to bits. Thank you.
