Soothsayer in Surrey?!

Frank has left us a sacred offering. I have spared you a photograph, although I was tempted.

The severed head of a small rodent and its expertly extracted intestines lie by the back door, awaiting interpretation by a handy haruspex.

Apparently, entrail reading is approximately as accurate as the polygraph test employed in the US legal system.

I put "soothsayer" into Surprisingly it gave me two results.

The first was for a vintage comic store in Glasgow. The second was for a CBT practitioner in Surrey!

Ms Melancholy? Any comments?

Our cat devours the whole lot except some weird little entraily bit which then has to be scraped off the doorstep, charming! Suppose it adds a whole new layer to 'contemplating your navel'

Ah ... the caecum - essentially the bit next to / including the appendix, which is absolutely rammed with bacteria. Even Ruby won't eat that bit ... !

Stray I think you'll find CBT can do anything: even foretell the future, oh yes. There's nothing it isn't clinically proved it can't do

Bobo - you are spot on there sir. I have yet to see any kind of conclusive evidence that CBT can't turn water into wine either. I think you may be doing the wrong training sir ... ;)

My cats left me a wonderful present of a small mouse expertly placed in my bed the other day.... how they must really love me! I am seeking CBT's magical and mystical powers to empower me to get over the shock!
