It being Friday the 13th, my luck's run out, and I can't think of anything to say today. But having inflicted a blog post on the world every day for the past 103 consecutive days, I'm well aware that if I publish nothing today, people will think I'm down the maternity ward, screaming "Push!" at a woman who looks like a space hopper.

So just to reassure everyone that that's not the case, I'll pass on some news of our re-homed kittens...

That's not them. That's a random photo from the Daily Mail website. But it demonstrates what Amelie spent nine weeks trying to achieve.

As it happens, Amelie told Lisa today that when the baby comes, she's going to explain The Cat Rules to him. Which is ironic, because she never follows them herself. As the saying goes, 'Those who can, do...'

But the breaking news from our network of kitten adopters is that Zita and Rozi are getting naughtier by the day, and doing their best to wreck a perfectly decent home, while Tilly is reducing her owner to tears by attempting to tunnel out like Charles Bronson in The Great Escape.

Apparently H came home from work this week to find her kitten under the floorboards. As a result, she was forced to spend an enjoyable evening making holes in her house in the hope of getting her out, before admitting defeat and calling a plumber. It was a bit like a game of Donkey Kong, but with cats instead of gorillas.

By the end of the night, she'd spent £95 on a call-out charge, and had a repair bill to match, but she was reunited with her kitten. Unfortunately the plumber left before she could ask him to drown it. Frankly these cats are more trouble than they're worth.
