So this morning I ‘rescued’ the cat from the vacuum cleaner. Suzanne was cleaning the rug and Eve was hackled-up on the other side of the bed. I got Suzanne to stop and was carrying the cat out of the room when she took fright anyway and took flight. Leaving me with scratches for my troubles. Though I have now noted that our antiseptic ointment is several years out of date, so I guess that’s good to know to put on the next shopping list.
