This morning I dropped my cats off at the cattery (going on holiday tomorrow!) and the owner was telling me about the latest Ofsted style inspections that catteries are now subject to. He was visited by a young 'inspector' who declared that their litter trays were too small. He subsequently measured them and found they were larger than the minimum recommended size. He's been running the cattery for 26 years and was obviously upset by the cattery's 'performance'. To add insult to injury, catteries are going to be star -rated. I'm sure he will be graded at least 'Catisfactory' (sorry - holiday mood kicking in!) if not 'Catstanding' (that's enough feline puns - Ed) So, it seems no-one can escape inept inspectors and I really hope he doesn't call it a day.
