OK, so I've had these ankle boots for a little over 10 years. They were very expensive when I bought them, but I haven't worn them much lately. So for Valentines dinner, we had reservations and I wore them. When I came home and took them off downstairs, Lickorish came in, was very wary, looked at them from every direction possible and hissed at them!
I later put them on the stairs (about 5 or 6 steps up) so I'd remember to carry them up and put them away. Not 2 minutes later, I heard a thump. went and looked, and one of those boots is now at the bottom of the stairs. I think she doesn't like them
