It’s charity retail day, so I feel justified in posting a cat picture:
My mum sent me this … thing – a sort of quilted flat bag? After some judicious googling we discovered it was a balloon cover – basically you put the [uninflated] balloon inside the cover then blow it up. Then hey presto, a large, light ball for cats to play with which won’t pop suddenly [because the quilting stops their claws from piercing the balloon].
All very well in theory, but Mr Puss HATES it. He’s TERRIFIED of it. This is the only picture I have with him and the balloon cover in the same shot (and I’ve been at this for three months now!) and as you can see he’s cowering behind it, unable to make eye contact.
He’s so funny – he tries to represent himself as a tough, staunch warrior, but in reality he’s a big old softie sook who’s afraid of balloons.
