Cats definitely have the marmite factor. Depending on your experience with them they’re either a) adorable bundles of fur or b) hairy evil monsters.
I tend to sway towards b), especially following I’m going to climb up your legs even though I can see you’re wearing shorts and I’m going to bat you mercilessly about the head and sit on your face until you wake up episodes.
I’ll admit that in some circles the second option is not a bad thing. In fact some people even pay good money for it, but swiftly moving on…

“How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you”
There are more cat truths on Matthew’s website ‘How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You‘, including a very helpful quiz (the results of which let me know that there is a 96% chance that my cat is trying to kill me).

Both only available in America, natch.

The reaction from housing market professionals to the interest rate cut has been both surprise and delight – though there is concern that lenders will not pass the cut onto consumers.
Will the rate cut be enough to encourage buyers back to the market and stop house prices from falling?
I know, you’re all probably sick of the whole US Presidential election. But rejoice readers; it’s all over now! And we couldn’t let it pass without some tenuous property-related blog now could we?
So even as Barack Obama is chasing George Bush around the grounds of the White House shouting “get orf moi laaaaand”, here are few ‘alternative’ white houses currently for sale, should you wish to live out any Presidential fantasies (or maybe if you just like white houses).
And I did look for ‘Barracks for Sale’, I really did. Sadly there were none. Boo.
