I sometimes wonder if my cat Vincent’s claims about his vehicle’s history… according to him, it started life as a citroen deux chevaux but then had a mahogany body built onto it’s stripped down chassis (pared down to three rather than four wheels). This is plainly a ridiculous claim. He calls it Tryane and talks to it.
While we’re here, I’m a little dubious of his claims of a noble German heritage. For starters, he should be driving a Volkswagen. Also, he looks like a particular breed of French cat, La Vache Folle.
He does command a terrific defence of his history though and always emerges victorious.
NB If anyone has any tips for the distribution of umlauts, I’d be happy to take them on board ü.
