It's safe to say that my dad is not an animal person. It probably stems from being a property manager, but he has certainly not been an easy person to convince when it came to acquiring pets. In fact, my mum and I bought a kitten behind his back when I was 12.
When he came to visit a month ago, I couldn't resist putting Ebony in his lap to see how he'd react. The look on his face is priceless.
He had to admit that she was a very good lapwarmer on a cold winter's night.
