(That would be a good name for a rock group, wouldn’t it?) I have two errant cat items, and might as well post them now.
The first is a picture of Butter, the awesome rescue cat of reader Steven Muth (he’s a flame-point Siamese who was rescued form a Colorado highway). I have a new picture of Butter grinning. This is what you call a “furball”. Butter also has his own Blackberry, which he occasionally uses to post here.
And you Brits can rest easy. According to the BBC, Chancellor George Osborne’s cat, who resides at 11 Downing Street, is all right after a traffic accident:
Chancellor George Osborne’s family cat, Freya, is being treated by vets after being “clipped” by a car near Downing Street.
The tabby’s injuries are not serious, a spokesman said.
Freya has lived at No 11 Downing Street – the Chancellor’s official residence – since 2010.
Her previous misadventures include being rescued by a charity worker after straying more than a mile from her Westminster home.
The cat, believed to be about five years old, is also reported to have gone missing from the family’s home in Notting Hill in 2009.
