Don’t read this if you’re a cat lover!

It was just sitting there, in the middle of the lawn, defying me to scare it off – a neighbour’s cat. I don’t know who it belongs to, it’s just one of a number of cats that patrol the area, but I don’t want it defecating in the middle of my garden or bringing its mates round.

It’s not that I have a fabulous garden or that I’m a keen gardener – to me, a garden is a place to sit out on a summer’s evening with a glass of wine and a good book. And I can’t do that if the garden smells of cat pee. So I’m rapidly gaining a reputation for being that crazy old cat-hater bloke. But I don’t care – outside of the office this is, after all, a place of business and I want my clients and contacts to come and attend meetings and social events free from the presence and stink the neighbourhood felines.

So I’m thinking of getting a dog – a big, loud, mean, cat-hating dog – and claiming it as a business expense. Or as a new staff member. Any tax experts out there able to advise…?

Comments:

Jennifer Brown, Virtual Assistant, Harrogate: I think in this case the dog would fall under company security arrangements. Not sure that is a legitimate business expense though.
