Purdey cropI’ve often wondered why some chairs have a gap beneath them, and now I know.  It’s for one simple reason:  so that you can shove small things under there and then squirm around trying to get them out.

I’m sharing this recent video in the hope that you, too, might try this exciting pastime.   It’s great for rainy days, or those annoying occasions when your local vole population has gone off to watch a Rolling Stones concert.

Please note that it’s important to be fully prepared, with your face and whiskers washed and your mind invigorated.   It’s also useful to have a butler equipped with a long metal ruler to retrieve the small items which inevitably end up beyond a paw’s reach.  If you don’t have a butler, your everyday servant will probably suffice.
