Lady Bracknell succumbs to temptation
Pictured below is the new Alessi "Tigrito" cat bowl. The two stainless steel bowls lift out for easy cleaning plus - and this is what really swayed her ladyship - the whole thing can be picked up by the tail, thus obviating the need to bend down. It is, of course, also quite exceptionally attractive.
These have not yet been delivered to the UK, but Lady Bracknell has just been in telephone communication with her local Alessi emporium, paid a fifty per cent deposit by means of her credit card, and "bagsied" a yellow one. She will be informed as soon as the bowls arrive. (The manager of the store is confident that these will sell well, as four of his staff have also pre-ordered for themselves.)
Lady Bracknell is far from convinced that her feline companion will genuinely appreciate the exceptional standard of design, and is willing to accept all criticisms to the effect that her motivation behind the purchase is one of complete self-interest and that the object may offer no real benefits to its alleged recipient.
