Today was my first day back at work, so Florence was home alone for the day. This was what met me when I opened the front door.
A couple of steps further and more was revealed........
Where was Florence, I wondered? She was on her chair, somewhat tied up. At the weekend, we'd put a collar on her for the first time, and she wasn't impressed with it one little bit. Indeed, she gave Mr JK and I a 'look' that all cat owners will recognise - hurt indignation! Despite us telling her that the collar is her key to the outside world, as it will hold the magnet to get in and out of the cat flap, she shook herself, scratched at it and licked at it to try to remove it. Sometime today Flo had managed to get one of her front paws through the collar and was now stuck! She tried to blame it all on her little mouse. He tried to steal her bell, she said. Hmmmmmmmmmm.
But where was the soil from? It wasn't too long before I found out!
There was a pot of Aloe vera cuttings rooting on the landing window sill. I think Flo got herself in a tangle up there and knocked the pot off in the process! She couldn't have made a better mess if she'd tried! I set to with the Dyson and cleared it all up, with Flo shut in another room.
