Janet In Exclusive "Seeing The Word From A New Angle" Pose
The above picture is for regular Little Cat Diaries reader Helen, who has pointed out that in his photos, Janet always seems to be the wrong way up. Well, Helen, there is a very logical explanation for this: Janet is a rare Norwegian Upside Down Cat. These are cats who come from the forests of eastern Norway, and spent up to 95% of their day in a topsy turvy position, owning to the strange weight distribution in their bodies. The above pose might look natural enough, but it actually involved a series of miniscule anchors and pegs. And while one might imagine that that original pressing of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew (since sold for £14 - the ebay vinyl market really isn't what it used to be!) in the background has been placed there for reasons of pure vanity, closer inspection would have revealed that it was all part of the complex apparatus employed to keep Janet from tipping over. It wasn't Janet's idea. Being more of a traditionalist, he actually prefers Kind Of Blue.
