Mark and Nicky, the owners of Dexter and Jasmine, warned me I might not see either of them when I visit to feed and change their litter, while they go away on holiday for a week.
'What usually brings them out of hiding?' I ask. 'You could try rattling this tub of Whiskas treats' Mark says. He does it and Jasmine's head appears cautiously around the door! But she looks at me and decides not to bother joining us.
So on my first visit to them yesterday, after I clean the litter and get their food and water ready, I try his trick. For about ten minutes, I sit rattling the tub. Nothing! These two cats are way too clever to be fooled by me trying to tempt them to come and play with me!
Maybe they'll come out of hiding tomorrow...........
No photos of either of them to share!
STOP PRESS!!! Dexter and Jasmine come out to see what's going on on my second visit - they are both a bit wary but even induldge me in a bit of playing! Next time I go, I'm taking my camera......
My final visit today, and it turns out, they both love having their photo taken!
