Low energy bulbs show the colour change too, if you do not have striplight fluorescents.

I have a little 'Humble Pie' to eat on the subject of colour names... Where I have said 'Cranberry'. please can you read 'Lilac', as Jak was absolutely correct calling it that name. Apologies for any misleading that I may have caused.  ???

Another interesting piece of information about the cat I showed.  In Susan Tobin's book,  she calls this style of cat 'Pussy cat', and reserves the name 'Cat' for the more commonly seen upright version.  Strangely in the colour list at the back of the book,  colours are given for the upright 'Cat',  but no mention is made of a 'Pussy cat' or the colours it was produced in.  The only reference that I can see is a picture of a Mottled Topaz version of it with an Owl. For those of you with her book,  the Cat and the Pussy cat are both shown as figures 36 and 37 respectively.  Sadly the pages are not numbered.

When all's said and done, there's nothing left to say or do.  Roger McGough.
