I am a PhD student from Cambridge University, study biomedical text-mining. I have a British Short hair kitten whose name is Ash.
Yumi and her friend stayed in my apartment for two nights in early September. They were clean and tidy guests. I was upfront about the fact that I would be in the apartment during this time - and that I have a cat - before she made the booking. She didn't express any objections to these two facts. However, when she arrived, she acted surprised that both I was there and my cat! I was very accommodating but maybe she didn't read my previous messages? I found it quite strange.
