Shhhhhh! It's starting...

As sole domestic cat at Downton Abbey, Andy has it made.

The finest drapes to climb...

The choicest bits at dinner...

World-class lap sits...

And the best litter box facilities ever!

Yet something weighs on the cat's mind, preventing him from fully enjoying his privileged life.

The truth comes out in a cozy fireside chat with some visiting American friends...

Later that week, an incident familiar to all cat owners occurs in the drawing room
just before tea...

A few minutes later...

And so, all ends well. Downton is saved, and everyone is happy. And it's going to stay that way, because what could possibly go wrong?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
