A little help from my friends...



This lady is being trained to care for Pumpy and me while the beans go away for a long weekend. The lady has been told that she is not to make any attempt to pick me up and that stroking me whilst standing is out of the question. Therefore, she has been made to kneel beside me and offer gentle rubs while talking softly to me. She also knows that my tablets are embedded in a big pat of butter prior to offering them to me , thankyewverymuch.

This is going to work out fine.

Yes, Pearl, you go on and train her in the way she's meant to go. Any lapse will have to be dealt with severely, but I'm sure you know that already...

She looks like she is being trained well. We think you said your mum is coming to Devon? When will she be there?

Our friend in Carolina sent it because Estorbo is mentioned, right at the end.
But we're sending it because one cat is just like you and one is a little bit like Pumpy.

(I bet you're pleased to have your "regular people" home again.)
