My feline furball Tao has been driving me to distraction.
Bengal cats are notoriously full of naughtiness and are renowned mischief-makers.
Recently the mini-tiger terrorist was chasing Aurora, my more serene cat, and ran straight through the blind cords and near-on strangled himself.
If it hadn’t been for my lightning reflexes, he wouldn’t still be here to tell the tale.
I’ve now had to cut the loops, but I feel I must emphasise the potential dangers of such cords, especially if you have small children and animals.
A few days later Tao somehow shut his tail in the shower room door and it was mum to the rescue again.
Fingers crossed there won’t be any more cat-astrophes!
