I usually arrive at the kitchen window around 7.30 am, ready for work. First order of business is a handful of Dreamies to give me energy for the busy day ahead. Then I have to have a nap because (a) they let me sleep on the bed here – how civilised – and (b) my nuisance brother isn’t here making a pest of himself and (c) I’m a cat.
Around 2 pm I’ll get up and persuade the Deb human to play with me with my toy because after all that sleeping I need some wild swings and leaping about. Then if the other human is doing pen stuff I’ll watch him for a bit until I start to doze off, then it’s time for another nap. Later I may deign to share their dinner if it’s something I like. They had pork, jalapeno and red Leicester sausages for lunch yesterday and they thought that would be too hot for me. Not likely!
After dinner I need a nap again. They generally wake me around eight and I go home for some cat food and some communing with my other human, the one that owns me. She thinks! Then it’s off to do some night-time prowling and catly stuff.
Such is the arduous life of a Part-Time Assistant Repair Cat.

Dear Deborah, Here in Australia I also have a full-time assistant, whose name is Gaius Decimus Hispanicus, so called because he was the tenth and last of his litter and the runt, but a survivor, hence deserving of a Roman name–Hispanicus has the same meaning as ‘spaniel: coming from Spain.. Sadly, he dropped out of puppy kindergarten, which renders him useless as a proof-reader. One day I will write to you about my own pens.
Please excuse my not using the Comments section, but I don’t know how to send pictures except by Gmail.
All the best, Michael Dunn and Decimus.

Sadly I know of no way for photos to be included in comments but you can always email pictures to me. McTavish sends felicitous feline greetings to Gaius Decimus Hispanicus.
