On March 13th 2007, having tried to teach our newly-acquired, Siamese cat, Shen, to use a litter tray, unsuccessfully, and me telling the wife
that either it got housetrained or it went out of my house, she became tearful about it.
Not long after my son and she watched a DVD of a film called DateMovie
which none of us had seen before.
In one scene a guy goes to a lavatory and there is a Siamese cat sitting on it, who even ends by applying lav paper, flushing and lighting a match.
Shen was to improve his habits and become a welcome member of the household.
