this is the funniest thing I've seen for a long time

Brilliant, solrep. What always gets me about cats and gardens (and to be honest I've slightly more time for the former than the latter, BUT..) is the way the cats will:

(a) Always pick the spot you've just planted something special [sieved earth - luvverly]

(b) Never ever bury their doings properly, even after spending loads of time pawing the earth around. I mean, even dogs do a better job.

Much as I love cats, I'm convinced they're just out to wind humans up. And, like with kids, any attention is good attention, eh?
