A kitten; the bathroom: you can probably guess already which way this is going...
Before the kittens arrived we took a policy decision that the bathroom door must remain shut at all times, and the toilet lid down, just in case. But kittens have the same ninja skills as pine martens, which Pandora proved when she sneaked in this morning after Matchgirl had concluded her ablutions.
So it was a pity that the toilet lid had been left up. The result was a very damp, bedraggled and chastened Pandora and a bathroom floor in need of a mop.
Her lust for adventure wasn't dampened for long: less than an hour later two missing kittens emerged from the tiny gap behind the microwave – their latest hidey-hole now that the space between the back of the oven and the wall has been blocked with cardboard.
Life continues to be a great adventure for The Fearless Ones. Every day at least one of them eyes up the leaping distance to the mantelpiece. At the moment it's just a little too far; one day it won't be.
Car Update: My chief suspect may not be the culprit, the police told me when I at last caught up with them today. Enquiries continue. A last resort will be DNA testing in Edinburgh. Mr Ford, it turns out, is in Culloden Moor, not Inverness, where Ross's garage has the current vehicle recovery contract. I've to phone tomorrow to find out of the car is drivable. It doesn't sound good.
