My 2 old cats have been very patient after the arrival of the pup
this was how they looked when the ball of fluff arrived

But it would seem that they have been plotting


But I think the dog has out bidded everyone

Your father was a mason!!!?!! ..... that explains a lot ......

Perhaps you could get one of your animals to run through your comments and do a quick spell check? - it might improve things a tad ...... just a suggestion ...... anything to help ...... no, no, no ... no thanks required ......
