The following day the cyclist was accompanied by several MPs and a media entourage returned to the street where the children were again watching the cat and her kittens.

The cyclist introduced the entourage to the children and asked what sort of kittens they were.

“They’re blues,” the little girl replied.

“Today,” the little girl replied, “they’ve got their eyes open.”
