Some friends in Germany sent us a carved cat. Our cat said hello in traditional feline way.

Indeed Nigella and as for the "hello" from your cat to the carved-one, no further comment is needed.

My biggest cat plonked on my laptop while I'm trying to image the sun when it's out. I don't only have to deal with clouds and rain, lol. Enough said, Sorry to bring the tone of solar chat down.

I wouldn't worry about the tone changing slightly Nigella as the telescope-case and the pc are all part of the Solar-system and clearly your cat is simply looking after each and even (presumably learning (the wrong way) how to type on the keyboard...

Cheers
