My daughter Rose and I have just returned from a two week meditation retreat where we left Prince George with my husband who is unused to having to attend to his needs and keep him entertained. For the next few weeks I’ll share the communications that passed between us and Chris (my husband) along with relevant photos of Prince George. First up is a series of Amuse-a-cat tips sent to my husband from my daughter. Try these tips on how to amuse a cat on your own moggy.
