Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
I have a yellow plaster cat permanently climbing the corner of the bookcase on my desk. I inherited it from my father, who brought it home from France in the 1920s. He treated himself to a year there after he won a prize for a book he had written. In France, it was (perhaps still is) traditional for farmers to decorate their roofs with plaster animals.

I see that we can't call the 1920s the '20s any more.
