I'm in my office, working on a piece, when Au walks in, headbutts my ankle, says, "Meow!" and marches out purposefully.
This is a signal that something serious is amiss. Either his bowl of kitty crunchies needs topping up, or the water glass is not up to the standard our senior cat expects.
I get up and follow Au - who then suddenly ducks, double-backs, and jumps up into my office chair.
Then he sits there, laughing at me, as I realise I've been tricked out of my chair.
Au has a wicked sense of humour.
