This picture from donick on Flickr is why I love cats. They are hard as nails cats.*
I am reading a trashy** Dean Koontz book at the moment – The Bad Place – and there are two twin girl characters who live as one with 26 cats in a dark smelly house.
The way Koontz describes their spooky symbiotic relationship is so spot on and is chilling yet compelling.
*That’s what they like you to think anyway.
*I need trash to get me through the hell of the London Tube twice a day four times a week.
