Does the title imply that you’re doing another series of “Escape to the Country”? I hope so, we always enjoy your take on the house-hunting. Mind you, in this last series, we think you had some serious competition from Tim Vincent in the male totty department… lori December 5, 2008 at 3:34 am Reply Aww, he poses just like my cat Wilkins. I think you can almost discern a soul in those bottomless eyes. Barbara Macdonald December 6, 2008 at 6:01 pm Reply Hi, great photo – was struck by the colours – was the day naturally of sepia tones (well the only other way I can think to describe it is “sepiac day” which has a vaguelly septic sound)? I love the contrast between cat and background! Computer generated? or natural? Regards Courtney December 6, 2008 at 11:03 pm Reply Reminds me of the cat next door, as well as the looks some of mine get from time to time. Interesting photo nonetheless. Susan December 7, 2008 at 10:44 am Reply Serious competition from Tim Vincent in the male totty department?!!! Are you kidding?! Alistair still retains his crown as most gorgeous TV presenter – no competition from ANYONE, least of all Tim Vincent!!!! Jason December 7, 2008 at 10:24 pm Reply Gorgeous photo – an incredible character! Where were you filming? Geoff Coupe December 8, 2008 at 2:16 pm Reply Clearly, I need to proceed very carefully here, otherwise it’ll be handbags at dawn with Susan… Valerie W.

December 10, 2008 at 8:03 pm Reply The cat seems not at all bothered by its state of taillessness. I, myself, have a tailless cat, an Abyssinian who’s come to that state in a rare event where the mother cat mistakes the tail of its kitten for part of the umbilical cord, whereupon the mother then proceeds to work away at it, gnawing until it’s separated. Interesting, eh? lori December 15, 2008 at 3:08 am Reply Sounds like the tale (pun intended) of a vicious mother cat. 🙂 Peter Anthony April 10, 2009 at 4:38 am Reply The cat reminded me of Mikhail Bulgakov’s cat in his book, The Master and Margarita. The expression is intense, like I imagined it in the novel. Leave a Reply Cancel Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
