Who's Got The Cutest Cat?

Why are we in the little studio? The one where we do pre-recorded content?
Why are we reading Saturday's paper?
Why is this blog being posted on a Saturday?

It's as if we came in on Saturday to pre-record the show. Actually, that is exactly what we did. Penny is at the Dot to Dot festival tomorrow, and I am in need of an early night in order to go and collect my daughter on Monday. The weirdest thing about doing a pre-record, (we record in three blocks of 58 minutes, to slot the shows in after the news) is that we could do the show in order. Normally, we do the third hour first as a pre-record, before doing two live hours.

One of the things we riffed on was our cats, and who has the cutest.

Penny's cat is the top one, the other two are mine.
