It appears that I may have caused offence with the title of one of my recent posts, 'Microwaves and Cats'.
Concerns have been raised that this title may have mistakenly given people the impression that I was subtly advocating the practice of putting a cat in a microwave oven and, as a consequence, children may be encouraged to 'follow suit' and actually harm a cat.
I would like to take this opportunity to point out that I do not condone the mistreatment of cats or any other domesticated pets.
I am an avid 'animal lover' and, indeed, once embarked on an exciting, tempestous, yet ultimately ill-fated, three-month affair with an angora goat called Raquel.
It ended abruptly and unpleasantly when I discovered that she was seeing another goat 'on the side'. Despite her infidelity, I still think of her often.
Some wounds never heal, regardless of time and introspection...
