Introducing...

Back in May, I introduced Lily to you all. Lily is only two-and-a-bit, silly, and could make a toy out of most mundane household objects. She squeaks like a rusty gate and could lick water from a dripping tap for hours. But it would be misleading of me to let you think that Lily is the only cat who graces myself and my boyfriend with their presence...

Meet Clio...

 ...and Shere Khan...

Mercifully, Clio and Shere Khan allow us space in their busy schedules in which we can happily procrastinate with them. No task is too small to be beneath Clio's notice. All chores and work fall under her jurisdiction, overseen with the wink of a bright blue eye and the swish of a fan-like tail. As far as Shere Khan goes, work of whatever kind, be it manual or academic is to be pitied. He considers it a millstone and a bothersome burden, and is more than happy to educate the ignorant in the ways of a true sedentary connoisseur (as befits a man of leisure) Clio's mantra for daily living: To see all is to know all. Shere Khan's mantra for daily living: To see all is but to concern oneself unduly with the mundane.

So there you have it: Three cats, two people, one happy understanding and an incredibly good vacuum cleaner.
