Pi Tan, or century eggs, with preserved sweet ginger. The eggs came with a layer of mud and rice husks, which I had to peel off without damaging the eggs. Hard work. Mum said the finished product was not fit for presentation. But it didn't look too bad after I rinsed off the mud.
I wonder if they still use horse urine to marinate the eggs?
Spencer practically camps on the kitchen table, to avoid Max, but she slept with me last night.
Max and Spencer yolwed for breakfast at 7am but I didn't wake up until 8am. Spencer ate a bit of biscuits but Max chomped through his food. Then he had morning tea again.
Auntycat was meowing downstairs already when I unlocked the door. She talked a lot too, no doubt complaining about BH2. Hat was reluctant to come up, and he didn't eat, even though I locked him in the store room.
Now Spencer is looking at me from the kitchen table, Max snoring on the sofa, and Hat sleeping in the store room.

Lucky loves sun tanning.
The neighbour dropped by to return the keys. She couldn't explain the broken window pane, but she said the cats behaved. Hat, Auntycat and BH2 knew to wait under the tree, but BH2 grabbed everyone else's food. Hat didn't dare to appear upstairs at all.
She said Max was OK the first day, following her around the house. Spencer, as usual, was hiding under the bed. The second day, Max was sleeping in the basket, looking upset and rejected the food. She felt it was because we didn't appear. She returned again in the evening, and saw that Max had eaten a bit. She finds Max very sweet, because of his expression, and the hippy way he walks. She heard of Max's lifes story, and was sympathetic.
Spencer right paw is still tender, but I can't see anything wrong.
