Ceiling Cat bless the Brits!

It’s nearly the end of a long day, but I was productive (on another task!).  We shall end Sunday with a sign of England’s solicitude for the cat. This is from a tw**t by Glenn Swann:

Yes, of course it’s made privately (if it’s a public sign, then I’m even more impressed!), but who cares?

And don’t forget: U.S. plays Portugal in 40 minutes.

  1. I’m convinced that the local front yard chipmunk is deaf because you can drive your car or lawnmower right next to him & he just happily chews his maple keys.

    1. You beat me to it. Great minds, I guess. I’ll only add, second only to Whiskers the blind cat, who has to drive with his head out the window.
      Or something.

  2. Hmmm, there’s a hand-made sign like that on the (private) road up to Haddo House. So by no means the only such example.
    Actually, considering that is on the post with a gate, it’s probably on, or at the entrance to, a private road itself. There are probably rules controlling the signs, billboards etc at the side of publicly-maintained roads.
    Actually, remembering back to events I was very tangentially involved with when I was living in Englandshire, there was one occasion when some private land (and the road on it) was made available as a publicly accessible nature reserve/ public part. In return for the local council taking responsibility for maintaining the tarmacadam road, signage on the adjacent public roads, and some advertising, the nature reserve people needed to sign up to a variety of provisions about public access, ensuring that footpaths were safe to walk on (including felling of partly-fallen trees after storms ; the sort of grunt work that I got involved in), blah blah, yadda, yadda. But certainly there were rules about keeping lines of sight on the road clear, trimming the shrubs back, etc. So, 30-odd years ago there definitely were rules, even if I don’t know the gory details.
