Would someone care to enlighten me as to just how I have managed to get cat hair in my work?

Now, I know the boy is of the intensely fluffy variety, and that sometimes, at home, it seems I don't so much vacuum/HOD-der-der-der-der* the carpet as comb it, but still...I was under the impression that I at least succeeded in dashing out of the door every morning looking vaguely presentable. Am I in fact labouring under a misapprehension here, and actually running merrily about in a Tribble-esque cloud of fur, perchance?

*Carpet-sweeper. As fellow Izzard fans will know.

Whilst we're on the subject of felines, the scruffy little black one turned up -

Which was nice. )

Just been out for my afternoon-tea-break-cigarette in the works car park at the back, and on stepping out there was promptly ambushed by a fluffy little ball of inky-black affection.


I promise you all I was not just going to nick off with him! Plan was to take him to the vet's and then release him if they said he was fit enough.

Car-park was a markedly cat-free zone when I went out with the special Publisher's Book Delivery Box (complete with hastily-stabbed airholes and my own T-shirt in the bottom of it) at clocking-off today. So I popped into the vet's and explained the situation, and she was very helpful, plus reassuring - she said the skin complaint sounds like an allergy to fleas (which, whilst that might not exactly be lots of fun, at least is fairly pedestrian, and isn't severely painful or in danger of dropping him dead at any minute), and that they have procedures when it's possibly strays (which is basically leafleting here, there and everywhere and letting various people know they've found one).

So, the consensus is that if I do find him and manage to catch him, it's into the vet's for an hour to check for a microchip. If no joy there, then I get him treated for whatever's up with him, release him round the back of the office again, and stick posters all around the village with my mobile # on, asking the owners to get in touch with me, as I'm worried he's a stray. (Perhaps also feeding him a bit round the back of the office if he gets noticeably thinner - vet said if he gets especially thin, to catch him and bring him back to them.)

WTF do I do with a random cat?! )
