Technical Adviser

It occured to me the other day that Madam Paddy Cat hasn't featured on the blog in a year or more. Now a venerable old lady - she is pushing seventeen - she is getting a little stiff in the joints and a little less inclined to chase around. In fact she has some favourite napping places and changes around between them according to phases of the moon and the position of the sun in Taurus or whatever. And she insists on being wherever I am ....

Madam ready to provide advice on my latest project.

Seventeen is a grand age for a cat - somewhere between 95 and 110 human years in real terms and yet she is still very active, very vocal and touchingly affectionate. Most of the local cats have learned to avoid my door when it is open in case Madam hurtles down the stairs and attacks in defence of her territory.

How many more years I shall have the pleasure of her company is an open question. I shall miss her terribly when the day finally comes even though her trick of cleaning my ears with her tongue and grooming my eyebrows when she can get me lying down can be a little startling and quite ticklish! Long may she continue.
