Here are some of the daily doings of Plum and her owner.
Dear Plum,I know what you're going through. Some dogs absolutely need to be told, and then WE get called naughty and put in the garden. We're just trying to maintain order!With sympathy,Poppy
Dear Poppy,Thank you for your sympathy. You have obviously encountered similar problems. It's not only humiliating to be treated that way, it's disloyal. Your understanding is a great comfort to me.Love Plum x
When in the dog house garden - dig a big hole. They love that.
This is an EXCELLENT idea. The new turf should be easy to dig. I'll start immediately. Thank you.Plum x
Sharing is a very difficult concept to learn - I have had trouble with it myself.
Sharing is ridiculous. My things are mine. Emma's things are mine, and anything I find and want is mine. Obviously.Thank you for being there for me.Plum x
Dear Plum,How absolutely mortifying for you! Maddie should have brought her own toys if she wanted to be entertained, and the thought of you being evicted from your own home breaks my heart!! As a cat it is my constitutional right to reject a human but they are never allowed to reject me. You should look into this, I think the RSPCA needs to hear about how beastly (pun intended) Emma is being to you.Love and Condolences, From Gracie and Meaghan
Dear Gracie and Meaghan,How lovely to think you two have been getting your heads together, talking about me and my miserable life. It's such a heart-warming image. Maybe, in some ways, my tragic life and harsh treatment has brought the two of you together, even for only a moment. If so - it was worth it. But I don't want you to worry too much about me. I will trudge along my lonely road where all is suffering and injustice and I will find my reward in higher thoughts and visions of my dear, far off, feline friends who care about me.Kisses, Plum xx
Plum, it seems to me you are just too honest - you haven't grasped the basic concepts of duplicity. I have just had another weekend of THE PUPPY, but such was the emotionally shattering power of my crying yet nobly forbearing face as he unpacked every one of my possessions, that I won a knee with lots of consoling treats and he was banished to bed. You have to take the long view....what's a slightly nibbled bone against a long-term investment in snack-filled goodwill? I think you should take up chess to develop your strategic thinking....Lots of love, Fudge x
My goodness Fudge! It sounds as though you have really upped your game. You are definitely winning. Surely that puppy isn't a puppy any more - but I expect it still has needle sharp teeth like Maddy. She is bigger than me, which is annoying, and probably nicer, which is even more annoying. But luckily Emma adores me, whatever I do.Love Plum x

I sometimes wonder what Katie would think of me having Other Dogs in the house. Definitely not allowed in her day. However, now she doesn't need it any more I like to think of her reaching down and giving them a benevolent wave of approval.James
I'm sure that is exactly what she is doing, James. After all, her number one goal was for you to be happy.Ellie
What a lovely thing to say, Ellie. I appreciate it. James
I think Katie is wondering why you are taking so long to let somebody else in. LOve Plum xx
Dear Plum,You undoubtedly made the rules crystal clear and it is unfortunate that you were banished to the garden.I too am being constantly told to be a more gracious host when other dogs come to our house. I feel they should behave accordingly, but somehow they are always right and I am always out of line. Good to hear that I am not alone.Giorgi
Dear Giorgi,How cheering to hear you have experienced these injustices too. I mean, not cheering for you - only for me because they behave as if I am the only dog in the whole world who behaves slightly badly now and then. They do always think they are right, but THEY DON'T KNOW. They don't know what has been agreed or disagreed and I think they should just let us get on with it on our own.Love misunderstood Plum x
Dear Alf,Somebody has taken your comment away so I am just writing to tell you that. It was here and now it's gone which is very sad.Love Plum x
Dear Plum my paws don't always hit the correct keys. My mum got frustrated and removed my dyslexic scribble. Love Alf x
