Tim Relf's Cats

Now, this [blog post by Tim Relf](http://www.fwi.co.uk/blogs/rural-life/2007/08/my-pet-subject.html) makes me happy. You see, as well as being one of our bloggers, he’s one of our journalists. And he’s chosen to publish one of his articles on the blog *in advance of* print publication. Admittedly the article is about his very cute cats (right) and the cost of owning them, but this is [*Farmers Weekly*](http://www.fwi.co.uk/Home/Default.aspx), and the readership have more interest in the costs of owning animals than most. And, more to the point, Tim’s offering his growing readership something extra, and treating them to something early.
