|Rumple is Melchior's new 'office cat'. (Harry - the first FELINE cat - left
at Easter 1996 when his owners moved away.)
Rumple is a stray who first appeared in the summer, then made a determined and successful bid to move in at the beginning of September.
She's very endearing, and quite bright, though her skills as a filing clerk are not all one would wish. (She occasionally mixes up papers for keeping with papers for disposal...)
Apart from 'rumpling' papers, she sometimes likes to chase
mouse pointers across the screen. Her other hobbies include mountaineering
(does anyone else have a cat that likes to lie on the tops of open doors?)
and doing owl impersonations.
