And just when...


... I thought they couldn't get any more photogenic, I came back in earlier and found this:

This is Amelia Peabody Jarrahkatt, gradually dragging a sock towards herself by the joint powers of Cuteness and Huge Padding Claws. I wrested it from her grasp shortly after this photo was taken. Note the complete lack of interest in the completed sock, which is presumably Out of Play.

Do I presume an Elizabeth Peters fan? In what way is this poor kitten like the redoubtable Amelia?

You do indeed.... and the mere fact she can disguise herself as a 'poor kitten'... She came to us as an Aimee, but her mindless bravery, and ability to rush around bossily, got her a name which was more in keeping with the Victorian house and the company of a Matilda. When we let her out a couple of weeks later, she turned out to be a formidable hunter who can still look demure and relatively shevelled while dragging half a dead mouse through the catflap, and is always the first one into the fray if we have an intruder-cat.
