Here is the lovely Korky, sat in the sun. He, like the rest of us, cannot believe how hot it is on October 1st. He is hanging around close to Richard and me as, according to his tum, it is almost time for tea. In fact the other two cats are within a few yards of him, lest we should forget to feed them. The usual routine if we become lax is to make complete nuisances of themselves by fighting, knocking things onto the floor, clawing furniture- in fact they are doing all those things as I type. So I guess I had better stop messing around and get my priorities sorted!
