Housesitting opens up all sorts of social opportunities – mostly with animals! This is Pippy. She is clearly unimpressed.

In the time it took me to get out my flash and line it up to bounce the right way, the cat woke up. At first I thought I’d missed the shot, but in retrospect I like the indignant look. It would never have occurred to me to photograph Pippy if she hadn’t chosen such an amazing background and struck such a perfect pose.

My cat (Floyd) was 17 when he died 10 years ago, and I haven’t owned one since. I am not exaggerating when I say that he was an awesome cat. Now I have a gorgeous dog, but I confess that I am still delighted by the attitude of most cats. They know how to relax, take no sh*t, and don’t care what you think of them. A dog will love you no matter how you treat them, but a cat will tell you how it is.
