The indoor cat is besotted by the flickering flames in the woodburner. It is not just the radiating warmth that attracts her. Ginny, perhaps not the most original name for a female ginger cat, takes an active interest in the flames, her eyes travel back and forth in synch with the movement in the fire. When the flames subside so does the attention of the cat. Her eyes close and she takes a nap, but still alert to the possibility of the flames fanning up again. I suspect that the cat's penchant for the sights provided by the conflagration in the fireplace will probably result in her developing cataracts. As she is already stone deaf that will only leave sound to disappear for me to be left with a deaf, dumb and blind cat. Perhaps she will then develop into a mouse catching wizard.
