Well I've got a little story to tell about Chloe-puss. It all happened when I noticed that the buttons on my digital clock which I keep on my beside-table are no longer working. You see, the clock has settings for the time-zones for most countries, including Melbourne & Sydney. Chloe has had free-reign of the house, including the beside table, and she has discovered that the clock was fun to play with. I mean, she can walk all over the buttons and change the time and time-zone, she can change the alarm, and best of all she can chew the corners of the digital display.
Sooo... while I have been peacefully sleeping, Chloe-puss has been travelling all over the globe to exotic far-off places like Cairo, Moscow, and Karachi just to name a few. She especially likes Egypt, whilst Sydney is not so alluring to her.
No wonder the alarm wouldn't go off at the time I set it! And what's more, Chloe has been resetting the time-zone so often that now the clock will not return to Sydney time!!
Ah well, I guess I did want a new alarm clock...
