My brother and his partner had two black cats, Doris, the elder (and undisputed boss), was half the size of Stanley. The cats arrived one day quite unheralded, realised they were onto a good thing, and promptly settled down as rulers of the house. In old age Doris went slightly spastic and wonky. We all thought she would go first, but she outlived my brother.
