One morning while I was reading peacefully my mails, I suddenly heard Mr. Gattino shouting in italian. That, in itself, is nothing special, because when he opens his mouth he has a very loud voice. He could easily sing in an Opera (if he could sing) or elsewhere without a microphone.

But there was something special in his voice, so I went to the living room and found him standing there and looking at a huge CORDBONE. And then of course (everything strange in this house is always caused by me) asked me : "Wy did you put this bone here ?" I were quite surprised, as I never had seen this bone and usually don't bring bones home ! But before I could answer, Arthur arrived, jumped on the bone and started pulling, biting, scratching with his hind legs and looked like a mad wild cat with his ears flat. We looked at each other. Was this true ??

Apparently our Arthur had paid a visit to his big friend Yanouk

The bone without any doubt belonged to Yanouk. Arthur had carried this huge thing from the neighbour's garden into ours, had, I don't know how, got it through the catflap, and pulled it up the stairs in our living room ! That was really unbelivable. He must have worked for hours !

Arthur was very proud of his prey ! I picked up the bone and put it on the Sofa's back and Arthur jumped and layed down besides it. In this moment I took this picture !

This is very cute. I hope Yanouk did not have to cry for very long to get his bone returned. haha
Arthur looks very pleased!
