A catastrophic mistake

Never name a cat after a goddess. A cat already thinks it owns you.

Clio, Greek goddess of history (modified appropriately for this household to histrionics), has already established the ground rules.

The kingsize bed, newly installed for the pleasure of the Janitor and TheCleaningWoman, now rightfully belongs to the cat. We are, however, most welcome to make use of the padded cat basket if we wish but please leave behind the European pillows. Most pleasing to her ladyship.

The laptop is not to be used for any reason. Work and blogging can go out of the window. The lid should be left open and the appliance left powered up because that makes the keyboard a comfortable and warm place to sleep in the afternoon.

Plants are to be restored to floor level. They are an endless source of amusement for playtime and a yummy mid-morning snack.

Cups of freshly brewed tea should be left out to cool before being sampled by the cat. Any tea left remaining may be for human consumption if the cat is feeling particularly benevolent.

And this is only day two.

Maybe it's time to buy a BIG dog.

Is that why my muesli was extra crunchy?

Good tip. At least we'll be able to reclaim one piece of furniture
