In love with meerkats

Is anyone else as besotted as I am with meerkats? I just love them. They’re so cute, confident and cool. Not just the real animals of course – I mean the pretend ones on Compare the market’s fabulous TV ads.

Have you seen the latest one? A seasoned old-timer reading from a story book tells us how his ancestors left their homeland to brave oceans and snowstorms before ending up in … Russia. There’s courage.

It just goes to show that stories don’t only work beautifully for humans. And although I’m not that fussed about cheaper car insurance, I definitely want a meerkat for Christmas.

ps My wife loves them too. Her name is Kat. Coincidence? I think not.
