We have three cats: Yannis, Fizzy and Halo. Halo’s a ginger tom and, as cats do, he spends most of his time sleeping. When he’s awake, though, he has his definite favourite people and I’m not one of them. In fact he will jealously protect my wife from me, swiping my arm if I try to put it around her when he’s about. Still, when he looks like this, I can forgive him anything.
