This morning was cold. A dull misty atmosphere hid the damp that pervaded the neighbourhood. It was so unfriendly out there that even our tom cats would not venture out for their morning constitutional. It was a case of check the cat flap. use the lit tray and stay in, wishing for the weather to ameliorate.This wishful thinking persisted for some hours until the sun started to break through the mist and the day warmed to more than 5 degrees. The cats just stayed in long enough to see the window cleaners do their job (not a job I would want in this weather) and then they were off to explore the world at large.
