CAT ON MATT: 6 July

This week, Eric is in a Hiss over Coco’s new home – but suspects she may soon get her comeuppance

Written by Eric
So, Coco (who is on holiday this week) has been moved. As anyone who has tried to avoid her mutterings will know, she used to be at the back, punctuating the Gardening Letters like a misplaced semi-colon. No more. For some reason, The Man has bumped her up the magazine, so that she will now appear on the page BEFORE me.

Now, I would normally say that this was rather incendiary. But between you and me, I know better. For I suspect that the real strategy is to move Coco further and further forward, until she's no longer in the magazine at all. It's a clever ploy, almost Catiavellian. I only wish that I'd thought of it first.

Never mind, I have been distracted by some extraordinary bundles of Fan Mail™, including a self-pawtrait of one of my biggest fans, Lily (in this week's issue) . I like Lily so much that I swapped the Letters Page around while The Man wasn't looking, so that she wins the special Letter Of The Week Prize. Tee hee.

Well done, Lily – flattery will get you everywhere.

Miaow for now!
