A CAT IN COW CLOTHING, originally uploaded by Lisa Margreet.

There are many reasons why I love my cat Lester but this is currently my favourite. He has a bit of a love/hate thing going on with Mabel our mardy moggie and he’s always chasing her and jumping out on her and stuff.

Recently he’s discovered this fantastic way to pounce on Mabel. He goes into my study and hides under the corner of the cow skin rug. Then when Mabel walks in he jumps out on her. She never learns that when there’s a lump in the rug it means that Lester’s under there.

He’s patient too like a good hunter should be – I’ve seen him hiding under there for literally hours waiting for Mabel to come strolling in.

Oh Lester, I do love you so!
