I went to visit my parents yesterday, in Lytham. I thought I would introduce you to Diego the cat. He is nicknamed the Cat of Pure Evil, because of his malevolent stare that he casts disdainfully onto you like Medusa. He has a particular dislike of small children (although he is not that keen on adults either) and keeps a paw free and ready to swipe at all times. In fact my neices and nephews won't go into the same room as him. He hates other cats with a passion and all have learned not to come into his garden.
My parents try not to let him go upstairs, a rule that he blatantly disregards.
Many are the scratches his claws have inflicted.
Has he any redeeming features?
He loves my parents more than any other and will climb onto their knee and sleep for hours, purring loudly.
But he will keep that paw free, just in case.....
