A WOMAN has gone on a shopping trip so her pet cat can enjoy a bit of alone time, she has admitted.
Jane Thomson, from Stevenage, said that she could see the signs, that she knew when she was not wanted, and it was healthy for them both to get a bit of space now and again.
She added: “It’s fine. It’s fine. I mean I have got a lot of work to do, but honestly it’s fine.
“Tabitha’s normally a wonderful companion but we can get on top of each other in that flat and it’s not like she can go to Costa so it’s up to me. Which is no problem.
“I couldn’t really concentrate anyway because there was this seething, furry ball of resentment squatting at the other end of the sofa wanting me dead. She probably was doing it for my own good. She sensed I needed a break.
“I thought she might want a cuddle, but she ran into the kitchen and started cleaning herself as if she had just been touched by Michael Gove.”
Thomson added: “I’ve been out for two hours, but I’ll leave it a bit longer because I don’t want to crowd her.
“It’s not that I’m afraid of her. I’m not.”
