When the boy was very little and was still at the stage of crawling around at a hundred miles an hour, he had a run in with my brothers cat Jasper. Picture it, the boy rounds the corner on the laminate flooring, skidding slightly at the rear, Jasper Cat rounded the other side of the corner, doing a sort of cat version of 4 wheel drift. They looked at each other for a couple of seconds in shock, then the boy burst into tears.
He’s much better with cats now though, and we’ve even considered getting one.
Go Jasper Cat!
