On occasion when the Prisoner is about, there is sometimes an upset cup and saucer. Only we can’t blame him for this one, nor can the blame be placed on the cat. After all if the cat had done it, the only way possible would be for the cat to knock both cup and saucer off the table, and that clearly didn’t happen. So to quote Sherlock Holmes, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” So someone must have been abroad in The Village, hiding under the table, behind the balustrade of the Old people’s Home.
As for the cat, it’s very well trained, to remain sat there when the cup and saucer were smashed. Many a cat would have run off. And then to remain there on the table when the broken crockery was replaced on the day of the Prisoner’s return. As for the cat, it seems fascinated by the parachutist floating down towards the beach!
